Weekend of Mobile Photography/Art with Fiona Christian

Share

Last weekend you may recall that we posted our first in a new series of articles entitled ‘Weekend of Mobile Photography/Art‘. That one was with Jerry Jobe and this time Fiona Christian tells all! Kicking us off this week is the one and only Fiona Christian with the most gorgeous images of England at its very best! Take a look…

“When Joanne asked me to write about what mobile photography and art I create at the weekends, I didn’t have an immediate answer.  During the week I work as an interior decorator but I’m usually a bit of a night owl, so I tend to do a lot of editing and creating during the late evening.

At weekends I’m often busy doing everything that I haven’t managed to do during the week: visiting customers, catching up on paperwork, doing the washing! But when there’s time, one of the best things about weekends, (when it isn’t raining) is that’s when I get to have an occasional day out with my family and visit local places of interest. I’m lucky to live in a beautiful part of the country where a wealth of stunning gardens, beaches and stately homes are on my doorstep.

Home is a tiny hamlet in East Sussex surrounded by country lanes, with views across the Rother and Dudwell Valleys. If we don’t have too much time to spare we can take a brief wander along our lane and through the surrounding fields and woodlands”.

Chinese New Year: The Year of the Dog: More than half of UK dog owners take more pictures of their dog than their family or friends

Share

2018 is set to be the Year of the Dog in more ways than one, as Huawei, one of the global technology leaders, reveals that more than half (55%) of dog owners across the UK confess to taking more photos of their four-legged sidekicks than their family or friends. The study of more than 1,000 dog owners across the UK was conducted by Huawei to celebrate the recent launch of its Huawei Mate 10 Pro, the world’s first AI-enabled smartphone that automatically recognises dogs and other objects, making it easier for people to take pics of their pets like a pro.

On average, dog owners in the UK take 202 pictures of their furry friends each year, with people in Edinburgh the most snap happy, taking 298 of their pooches per year, followed by dog owners in Bristol and Leeds at 283 and 256 photos per year respectively.
