I must admit that I have a small but fine collection of photo books. That's books with mainly photos in them rather than "how-to's". I'm influenced often by the emotion of the work inside - such as the fine James Ravilious, Alexey Titarenko and many others. However, I also have an interest in fine B&W cycling photos - no doubt because of my past employ/sport. Often the well-known names such as HCB shot cycling events from time to time but I rather like the images of Etienne Auwera - this image of his comes from the Tour of Belgium 1952.
