I just tried out Blurb to publish a photobook (Photographs by Mike-Hope) of some of my black and white shots. It is up on Blurb right now and thought you might like to take a look. I am going to publish it in tablet form too so it will be easier to review and download through Amazon (only if you like it of course). If you have any comments or any of the photos take your fancy let me know…

About the Book
Just travelling around over the past 8 years or so, snapping places and images of interest that I felt might look good in black and white, or near black and white as in some of the photos. A varied collection of some 72 pages that I hope you enjoy…

They were so colorful and reminded me of Monet’s famous water lily collection I had viewed earlier in the year whilst visiting the de Young in San Francisco, so I gave it a bit of a painterly feel. Hope you like it…
