Working on old images and using Twitter

Over the last couple of days, I have shared more of our photography to Twitter, Viewbug and 500px.  All in all it is rather time-consuming.  I've been a member of these sites for a few years, especially Twitter.  So I thought it was about time that I utilised these social platforms for displaying our images. … Continue reading Working on old images and using Twitter
