  • I love the fact that Samba in Rio is just what happens day in day out - in a bar or on a street...

  • Georgie dancing through a shop with Dave the Bear. Dave is given to a child in her class each weekend. Georgie was over-joyed when it was her turn and danced all weekend.
  • This white line is the remains of walking within in a labyrinth I built in Ireland at night. The camera was on long exposure and I was carrying a torch. The spiraling trace reveals the movement. (Tom Spencer, trace creator - Charlotte Spencer, County Kerry, Ireland 2008)
  • The (unison) stirring of the 500 biodynamic treatment. Creating a vortex in one direction and then the other direction with a bit of chaos in between energises the cow manure solution which is then sprayed on the vineyards. Paul says the one hour of stirring feels strangely meditative to do.

  • This image captures how it feels to be at a music festival. The observers are as interesting as the Horseman.

Your Move Brief

This photoblog shows images that capture movement in our everyday lives.  We invite you to respond with your photographs of movement, which use the world around you as inspiration.  Think of this as broadly as possible and be creative with your selection.  The subject matter of your photographs could include leaves falling, reflections of water, people walking, moving vehicles or animals, as well as dance, theatre or sport.  Your photo must capture a movement however big or small, a moment in time before it moves on.

The title offers an insight into the photograph.  The caption describes your ideas about the movement in your image and should include details about the people or event you have photographed.  If your picture includes another persons’ work we encourage you to credit it clearly in the caption. 

The photoblog will not include still portraits, posed pictures or any photographs without movement as the subject matter. Your photos must not include any promotional material, logos, text or advertising.

This is an open photoblog and all the photographs that meet this brief will be made live.  You can submit a series of photos, though an edited selection of these may only be shown.  You will be notified if your photographs do not meet this brief and encouraged to submit other images.  Use the photographs on this site as inspiration and your pictures will continue to inspire others.
