More Than 50% of British People Avoid Tourist Hotspots According to Recent Research

Share

A report commissioned by Huawei to celebrate the recent launch of the P20 Pro handset, reveals that more than half of British people avoid photographing some of the most beautiful locations abroad whilst on holiday. This report was conducted in respect of holiday destinations within the UK.  We are extremely short of space, here in the UK and overcrowded most of the time, so it’s not altogether surprising that we don’t wish to queue to take shots while we have some free downtime, sadly. The report goes on to say “UK tourists spend a collective 25 million hours just to queue, view and photograph landmarks, nearly half (45%) are becoming increasingly frustrated trying to capture the picture-perfect holiday shot. The younger generation in the UK are the most anxious age group when it comes to capturing that perfect photo, with 76% of 18 – 24 year olds becoming stressed and 1 in 10 taking up to 400 photos on average during their getaway to capture the ultimate shot”.

According to the Huawei report, these are the results:

He is a respected and very talented mobile street photographer. @italianbrother has been granted full access to our Instagram account and he is doing a very impressive job. We are very proud of him!

On Day 8 he selected a wonderful image by @iphonefineartphotography and he writes “I remember walking down the shores of Kent, on a windy wintery day, huge swollen waves of a cold sea rising majestically, and this old man, with his Sherlock Holmes’ hat and a Barbour parka, relentlessly fighting the bitter chill, with the hope of a big catch, I thought; yet, when approached I asked him why, and he merely said it’s good for the soul, the only moment of utter freedom in a prison society. He was true, and true is this photo! Thank you for tagging!”

On Day 9 he selected a wonderful image by @jujufolies and he writes “Long time ago on an autumn’s night, a face, memories of days passed, the drops of rain, that sound, your face, the smile, your eyes, a love story in the making… or maybe not… so many questions… thank you for tagging!!!!”

On Day 10 he selected a wonderful image by @sevenography and he writes “Portrait photography and poetry have a lot in come, both inspire strong feelings!!!! They make you stop and wonder, think, ponder, they want to make you want more! And same is the case for this wonderful and mysterious shot! Thank you for tagging!”

Weekend of Mobile Photography/Art with Talented Mobile Artist, Clint Cline

Share

Recently, you may recall that we posted our third in a new series of articles entitled ‘Weekend of Mobile Photography/Art‘. That one was with Alexis Rotella our first was with Jerry Jobe and our second with Fiona Christian, our third with Amanda Parker and this weekend Clint Cline tells all! Take a look…

“My weekend with Sando Botticelli

Assiduus usus uni rei deditus et ingenium et artem saepe vincit. Cicero said that. It means (roughly), “Constant practice committed to a subject often outdoes both intelligence and skill.”

Because I work daily in the communication arts as a writer and designer of print, digital, and video works, my weekends are often eclipsed with projects spilling in from an overstuffed week of To-Do’s. But on the occasional weekend where I find myself without an armload of project briefs or honey-do lists, I heed Cicero and burrow in the practice of new things and unexplored ideas.

When Joanne asked me to consider sharing my weekend, I was coincidentally researching inspiration from the early Renaissance masters for an Easter series I was doing on the  Resurrection of Christ. Her invite arrived as I was studying the classic, almost sculptural, forms of Sando Botticelli’s early Renaissance works. So I decided, in the spirit of Jerry Jobe, to pick an image and take you through my steps of transforming it into a contemporary piece”.
