How will you have your tedium? Rare or medium?

The Guardian newspaper has a slide show of 40 Michael Parr photographs from his photographic portrayal of ten British cities. I bailed after 20, they are just really boring.

Ok, maybe the Brits are boring, I can live with that but when photographing them is it really necessary to re-invent Aunt Edna’s 1960’s slide night of “My British Holiday”.
Yep, they are that bad, quintessentially objects in front of the lens that says little more than the camera was there often with questionable compositions.

Have a look for yourself here. No, I’m not nicking an example to post here, The Expat does have some standards
