Send Chris to the Icebergs. And Penguins.

When Jon Miller (The Rest of Everest) found out about a contest to win a 30-day tour to Antarctica, he told me “YOU’VE GOT TO ENTER!” – I had a look and was pretty quickly convinced that I want to do that.

So here I am, I’ve entered the contest and if I manage to get enough votes from you, there’s a chance to win and bring you some great photography, videos and podcast episodes from the tour.

If you like, please cast your vote here (Facebook account required) – and while you’re at it, there are several other TFTTF listeners who would be happy if you could give them a vote too!

And if you enter yourself (yes, you can enter too!), please send me a link, so I can add them to a post here on the site to send people your way too.

It’s the last episode of Tips from the Top Floor for 2015 and as usual for that last episode, Chris will take a bit of a departure from photography.. and instead look at a Villa, a psychologist, an earthquake, a book, a new book, some health issues, and a few other things. Come on board and help Chris celebrate an exciting 2015 and hopefully an even more exciting 2016. Thanks for all your support!

Send me to Antarctica and I’ll take you with me!

After the last contest that (briefly) got one of my pictures into the Paris Louvre, here’s the next one. This time it’s about the trip of a lifetime: Antarctica. It’s so high on my list, it’s almost painful. And here’s a potential opportunity that has just opened up. The cruise is in 2017 and one person will win it.

And of course if I’m lucky enough to go, I’ll pack you into my suitcase and take you with me. In the form of audio and video and photography.

In this second last episode of the year 2015, Chris explores how color-blindness and photography can go together. Is reverting to black and white really the only good solution? Also: the old TFTTF voice mail line is no more. It’s gone. It’s pushing up the daisies. It’s an ex-voice mail line… and it’s all Chris’ fault.
