Most of the photographs are for sale as high quality prints in a variety of sizes: click/tap the shopping cart icon (top right of a page showing an individual picture) to buy a print.
The photographs and movies (except where noted) are copyright Dr Brian Watson 1962 - 2014.
The 1905 motor racing pictures are taken from stereo black and white glass plates owned by Michael Watson. Some of the other historic motor racing original transparencies are now owned by Jarrotts, from whom high quality prints can be obtained. All of these are displayed here by kind permission.
I wrote the code. I'm a self-taught amateur enthusiast using a Mac, Photoshop, BBEdit, and jQuery. Most of the galleries use JuiceBoxBuilder Pro, and the slide shows use ResponsiveSlides, a jQuery plugin.
My design philosophy is to be device-independent, with a minimalist look and fast-loading pages.
Images are compressed to reduce load times: occasional compression artefacts may be visible on screen, but these do not appear on prints, where there is much more detail than there is on-screen.
