    Looks a bit Final, this ferry journey (it’s not really strange how abstract images have that mythic quality) — don’t pay the ferryman just yet!

    Whilst I’m all for playing with info-ubiquity, I think the Proper Camera won’t lose its place. If I wasn’t a scientist, I’d say this image exhibits excessive Splodginess (those pink highlights, the random coloured dots in the waves). On the other hand, if I was an artist I’d say that was quite an improvement over oh-so-perfect CCDs. A pocket Seurat generator in fact.

They find that the Chinese machine vision imaginary is global, blue and competitive.  […]
