Taking the Tour

Taking The Tour


One of the huge influences on my life were the drawings of Frank Hampson and Frank Bellamy in the Eagle comic in the 1950s. They illustrated the comic strip Dan Dare, Pilot of the future, and the graphic quality of their illustrations sparked my imagination and encouraged me to take up art and eventually to end up with a career in that field.

This photo, taken in Dublin, reminded me of their drawing style which was often high contrast and dramatic.

These good folk were standing in the sunshine, listening to their tour guide in the heart of the old city.

  1. John, a well done image. I particularly like the tight cropping and panoramic style. By doing this you’ve created a feeling of closeness among the four people but also a feeling of each being in their own world.
