Number Six: Where am I?
Number Two: In the Village.
Number Six: What do you want?
Number Two: Information.
Number Six: Whose side are you on?
Number Two: That would be telling. We want information.......information.......information.
Number Six: You won't get it.
Number Two: By hook or by crook, we will.
Number Six: Who are you?
Number Two: The new Number Two.
Number Six: Who is Number One?
Number Two: You are Number Six.
Number Six: I am not a number! I am a free man!
Number Two: [laughs]
Number Six: I will not make any deals with you. I've resigned. I will not be pushed, filed, stamped, indexed, briefed, debriefed, or numbered! My life is my own!
If none of the above makes any sense to you, you are definitely not an aficionado of the British 1960s surreal cult TV series 'The Prisoner'. For those who do understand what this all about this image was captured in April 2017 in the village of Portmeirion, Gwynedd, Wales (where the series was filmed), on the 50th anniversary of the first episode, including a re-enactment of the second episode. The rest of the images from that day can be viewed here.
It's Latin for 'image of the day'. OK, images don't quite appear every day, but they are randomly selected images from my eclectic archive, so they're worth a look. And sometimes they're even accompanied by photography related words. Depicting whatever from wherever until whenever since November 2019. A sister site to my more static portfolio: telltaleimages.com

To my mind, probably the finest documentary photographer
working in the UK today. Except he doesn't do this for a living; all the people whose lives he chronicles are known to him personally. Strikingly honest photography.
British documentary and news photographer who had a gift for capturing the gritty streets and no-frill lives of people living in the poorest districts of post-war Britain.
The respected Armenian-Turkish documentary and portrait photographer, who denied photography was an art form, travelled the world photographing celebrities. But his monochrome images depicting the working class people of mid-20th century Istanbul are the images that stand out for me.
British newspaper photographer who photographed many ordinary folk, but mainly famous people, especially those associated with the arts. For many years she used only a simple camera, an Olympus OM1, a standard 50mm lens and available light.
German professional photographer. It's not his commercial work that works for me but his street-honest personal photojournalism projects. 'Wee Muckers', his depictions of Belfast teenagers is downright saddening and inspiring.
