For five years, up until late 2012, I produced a regular “Week in Pictures” gallery for the MSN UK website. It did rather well and I had entertained the notion of continuing to produce similar galleries on a site of my own. But…
At Christmas I got to meet my niece, Maisie, for the first time. She’s awesome in that way an unashamedly proud uncle knows she is. Naturally I shot a bunch of photos of her, a small selection of which you can view here.
However, my favourite photo might be this outtake, taken by her father, in which Maisie begins perfecting a facial expression that will be much needed when she has to listen to her uncle telling stories. An expression I call “the affectionate skeptic”.
"Darcy The Flying Hedgehog" is a series of photographs by Shota Tsukamoto starring her hedgehog—voted cutest in the world. Based in Japan, she sets the stage for her adorable, 3-year-old hedgehog in an original and fun manner.
