I know what you're thinking. Does he still do that whooshy stuff?
I was doodling around on the social site Mastodon when I saw a very familiar sight. Someone had posted a shot of the fabulous Millook cliffs, and talked in his post about how he had waited for a woman walking up the beach to enter the frame, to give an idea of the scale of... Continue Reading →
