|Hey guys, does anybody know how to prevent your blog from linking your images to a larger res version on a new page? I am happy with their size and appearance on my blog page but when you click the image it jumps to a new page displaying the image at it's full size which I don't want. I would like them only viewable on my blog at the size they are displayed. Any ideas? Thanks.|
|....Hmmmmm, and strangely enough it only seems to be the landscape orientated images that do this. Upright images don't link to anything, you can't click them at all.|

Anonymous asked: What is Joel Meyerowitz style of photographing?
I’m not sure what I would call his style. He mixes street photography in with architecture and ‘Americana’. I would place him in the ‘New Topographies’ movement with the likes of Stephen Shore, Lewis Baltz, Robert Adams. He is also not dissimilar in style to William Eggleston at times and together with Shore they were some of the earliest champions of colour photography.

In celebration of my week-long trip to the north of Italy (namely Milan and Biella, maybe Turin) tomorrow, here follows a selection of images from the famous Lavazza calendar.
The Italian coffee manufacturer was founded in Turin in 1895 by Luigi Lavazza. In 1991 Lavazza began producing a calendar featuring artistic fashion photography from some of the worlds leading photographers. Everyone from Helmut Newton, Annie Leibovitz, Elliott Erwitt, Martine Franck, Richard Kalvar, David LaChappelle, Ferdinando Scianna and many others from the world of fashion photography have contributed each year.
The images usually consist of models in a variety of coffee theme stagings and set ups. Some surreal and utilizing over sized props in bizarre scenarios and vibrant colour (LaChappelle) and others taking a more traditional approach and maintaining a classic Italian feel (Scianna).
2012 will be the exception to this concept. 12 of the photographers will together produce a self portrait for each month in their own distinctive style.
Maybe I can pick up a copy of the new calendar while over there!
