Share

Welcome back to our forty fourth post in our new section Tickle Your Fancy. Tickle Your Fancy’ includes a round-up of between three to five links to articles from around the internet that have specifically interested us during the course of the week. Ones that we feel are relevant to your interest in photography and art.

Just to explain the title for this section Tickle Your Fancy’ is an English idiom and essentially means that something appeals to you and perhaps stimulates your imagination in an enthusiastic way, we felt it would make a great title for this new section of the site.

This week we’re truly buoyed by our wonderful new Column edited by Gina Costa entitled Mobile Photo Essays, if you haven’t seen that yet, please go here. We’re so inspired that we have dedicated this weeks Tickle Your Fancy purely to Photo Essays and articles of interest. Hope you enjoy this.
