Chelsea Boots for Motorcyclists

Riding a motorcycle requires over-the-ankle protection. Most motorcycle boots are designed for that in mind, leaving little room for fashion. Chelsea boots are a stylish boot that have been a must for men’s wardrobes since the 1960s and they provide the protection a biker requires whether he cruises on a sport bike or a motor scooter.

Whether black, brown, or suede, Chelsea boots are ankle length and easy to slip into. Their elasticized sides provide both comfort and support. Most people don’t think of them and motorcycling in the same sentence, but bikers who commute to work or are venturing out for a night on the town know they need something more versatile than a clunky motorcycle boot. That’s where this iconic footwear comes into play.

Expertly constructed of durable, quality leather, a boot can withstand the wear and tear of riding while looking good. When a man parks his bike and takes off his helmet, he can be assured that his feet impress as much as his mode of transportation. His sense of style is intact and the impression that Chelsea boots make is as forceful as that of his ride.

Heaven forbid a motorcyclist meets a mishap on the road. If it happens though, he can rest assured that the high cut of his boots will protect the bones of his feet and ankles. Chelsea boots are not just comfortable for walking around. They are serviceable footwear, rugged enough for any weather and any situation. Handmade, as they always have been, Chelsea boots look good on the road, at a pitstop, in the office, and relaxed on the rail under a bar stool.

Men who adventure on the wilder side of the road put their faith in boots. They are boots fit for wherever a motorcyclist finds himself, whether it is straddling a humming engine or seated at a cafe enjoying a glass of wine with the bike parked nearby. How a man travels through the world is important, be it on two wheels or two feet. A man’s gear says a lot about him.

Devil May Cry 3 Review

Developed by Capcom, which is famous for such Titles as Resident Evil, Street Fighter and my personal favourite Megaman. The first Devil May Cry was released in 2001 and ever since has gained a huge reputation as the sword & gun kick ass bloodlust demon slaying death defying game.

Now that the third in the DMC series is out the game has had time to be fine tuned and ways have been found to take out the annoying bits for example the camera angle has been fixed, a wider selection of moves has been put in and your demon slaying arsenal has been upgraded. Unlike the second DMC this game was hugely successful as you only have one character and the awesome story line has been told from before the begging, that’s right this game is the prequel to them all, but is also the best of them all.

At the start you see the infamous Dante sitting in his chair eating pizza when he his visited by some bald guy who delivers a message from Dante’s brother Vergil, next thing you know Dante’s attack by demons and starts to kick some serious ass in a cut scene before letting you have a try at it. If you didn’t already know Dante is a half human half demon person, at first he looks like an ordinary guy but when you see him fight he aint so ordinary any more. About half way through the game you’ll get to see Dante turn into a demon for a short time and also use this ability in battle.

The battles in the game are virtually tireless as just as you think your getting bored another weapon is handed to you and you can unleash yet another devastating combo. The storyline is pretty unbelievable as well what could be better than Dante wanting to stop his Evil twin brother Vergil from opening the gate into the demon world and absorbing their fathers demon powers?

Discover Photography: The Art of the Image

Since the time of Stone Age Man, when images of the animals and men hunting were first used to decorate the walls of cave, we have been fascinated by the captured image. Although it was not until the invention of photography that truly made this fascination into an art form that everyone could enjoy regardless of artistic ability. People all over the world take pictures of themselves, relatives and friends, pets and landscapes whether or not there is a particular circumstance or reason for doing so. But how much do we actually know when it comes to photography? Below are some of the different kinds of photography that will help us learn more about the different ways of taking photographs.

Amateur Photography has grown in recent years with the advent of cheep digital cameras and this digital photography that has become easily accessible to the amateur due to the low cost of both equipment and reproduction of the images, that we will have a brief look at in this article.

Black and White or Monochrome Photography

The first are to consider is black and white or monochrome photography. This is not simply presenting an image in black and white. Black and white photography explores the contour and character, tone and texture, the aesthetic art and beauty of the subject. The two components of black and white photography that give depth and feeling to the image are the shadows and highlights, if we learn to use them then we can create great images.

Color sometimes obscures the texture and form of subjects, it draws our attention the way flowers attract insects and birds, and ripe fruit catches your eye on a tree. Sometimes that's what we want, but black and white can emphasize the texture of the subject.

The variety of ways that different colors convert to different greys means that you can quite fine control over just what parts of your picture will be light and dark, in addition to lighting levels. The absence of light can be as important as the highlights. Good deep shadows can give a depth and solidity to an image. It allows us to separate out the effects of color and luminosity, put another way black and white photography allows us to use color more effectively.

Action Photography

Action Photography may be where the photographer takes pictures of sporting event, or of children playing, anything intact where there is movement. Either set the shutter speed to freeze the action or try a slower shutter speed to blur the movement. This blur effect can create the sense of drama and movement. If the subject is moving across the frame try to track the subject, this is called panning, the effect once perfected is the subject is sharp but the background has the movement blur giving the impression of speed.

Shooting Action Shots of Athletes, people and animals in motion, and other moving objects create wonderful photo opportunities. However, capturing fast action on a digital camera can be challenging.

Certain settings on many digital cameras allow photographers to photograph action in a point-and-shoot mode specifically designed for moving subjects. Other times it is up to the photographer to manipulate the digital camera to achieve the best possible photos.

Digital cameras with less shutter lag capture better action shots. Regardless of your camera's specifications, you can further minimize shutter lag by pre-focusing before you snap the picture. To do this, hold down the shutter button halfway and then once the camera has focused; press it down all the way to take the shot.

Fast shutter speed allows photographers to capture great shots of moving subjects. If your digital camera supports a slower shutter speed, it is still possible for you to shoot some wonderful action shots. It may take some practice, but try panning the camera, keeping the lens on the subject's action.

Shoot in continuous mode if it is available to you. You might feel like the paparazzi when you first get started, but you will love how this quick mode doesn't let you miss a shot! Digital cameras that support continuous shooting work nicely for action shots because they are able to write all the photos to memory at the same time instead of one by one.

Anticipate the action and position yourself accordingly. If you are shooting sports, camp out by the goal line or find a good location where you can get clear shots of the athletes.

Invest in a good lens. Many action shots will benefit most from a digital camera with a 200mm lens, though you can interchange lenses for different effects. Zoom lenses work wonders for sports action shots.

Aerial Photography

Aerial Photography is best if you want to photograph a landscape or cityscape. Sadly we can't all afford to have our own helicopter, but great effects can be achieved from the top of tall buildings, bridges or mountains. So although true aerial photography may be out of reach, we can still have the illusion of aerial photography.

Travel Photography

Travel Photography is not just about your holiday snaps. It is about capturing something of the feel, the emotion, the essence of a place. It is about telling the story of the people and the landscape; it captures the mood and the setting. But you don't need expensive foreign holidays; travel photography can be your record of the next town or city or even neighborhood. As a is an exciting local city for me to explore, but with the added advantage that it is not far to travel to.

When photographing people in their local context there are a number of techniques that I try to use but keep in mind the principle of treating people with respect.

I've already talked about making shots contextual but one great way to do this is to think about what's in the background behind the people you're photographing. Ideally you want something that's not too distracting but that adds to the context of the place you're shooting in. Another technique for shooting shots of people that ignores the 'contextual' rule is to find a brightly lit position with a dark background. This can really help the face you're shooting to pop out and capture the viewer's attention.

Some of the best shots I've taken of people while traveling have been where I've tightly frames people's faces. This means either getting in close to the person or having and using a good zoom lens.

Go for natural (un-posed shots) – While sometimes the posed shots can work quite well they can also lack a certain authenticity. Photograph your subject doing something from their normal daily life, at work, the marketplace, home, or just crossing the street etc.

Most of the shots I've taken of people over the years while traveling have been of single subjects alone in the shot. This is partly just my style but is something I've become quite aware of in the last few months. Adding a second person into an image takes a photo into a different place. No longer is the shot just about a person and their environment but it somehow becomes relational. The viewer of the photo begins to wonder about the relationship and a new layer is added to your image.

Quite often it's the shots of people dressed in national costume that tend to attract photographers when traveling. While these shots can be very effective I wonder if they are always really representative of a culture. Quite often these people have dressed up especially for a show or tourist attraction and the majority of people in that country look quite different. Mix up the types, gender and ages of the people you take photos of and you can end up with a very effective collage of faces of a country.

It goes against the nature of most travel photography which is usually very fast and spontaneous, but if you can spend time with people, if you have the opportunity to sit with a person for a longer period of time and photograph them in a more extended manner this enables you to tell the story of the individual and can lead to some wonderful sequences of shots using different photographic techniques, lenses and situations, while the person becomes more relaxed around the camera.

Keep your camera to the eye for taking those spontaneous shots between the more posed ones. It's amazing what images that you can find when the person isn't 'ready' for you to shoot. These shots often include people interacting with others or expressing true emotion. I find setting my camera to continuous shooting mode often leads to some wonderful candid shots. If conditions permit don't replace your lens cap until you pack your camera away.

When it comes to choosing lens, I find that a focal length between 24mm and 135mm is a good range to work with. Going for wide angle lenses can also produce interesting shots but you will often find that they do distort your subject's face a little. Choosing a longer focal length can be useful for putting your subjects a little more at ease.

Underwater Photography

Underwater Photography has become more accessible with the advent of cheep underwater cameras. Whether you intend to take photograph in a pool, lake, river, or the sea underwater photography can be one of the most exciting and rewarding things to do.

The difficulties you encounter when in shooting underwater can be summed up in one word, "limitation." Communication and travel below the surface are limited. Natural light and visibility are limited. How you tackle these limitations depends on your skill underwater and your photographic equipment.

However the most important advice you can receive has little to do with photography, and everything to do with your safety. A watery environment can be a dangerous one, even if it is a swimming pool. No photograph is worth your life. Depending on the type of underwater photography you wish to practice, you must first acquire the appropriate specialized knowledge and training, and obtain certification from a qualified instructor. This applies to every aspect of underwater activity, from basic swimming skills to advanced sub aqua diving techniques.

This list is by no means exhaustive; they are just some of the various types of photography you can discover. There are so many other forms of photography from infrared to medical, street, landscape, portrait, macro and Panoramic photography. Photographic work can be divided into dozens of categories, many with lots of sub-categories. But for now, just go and have fun with your camera and discover the joy of photographing you chosen subject!

The Best Outdoor Restaurants in London

There’s something magical and special about eating dinner outdoors, especially when dining at a restaurant. Dining under an outdoor umbrella with a couple of close friends has a certain kind of positive energy to it, as you feel completely cut-off from the rest of the world (unlike how you might feel if you were sitting indoors right next to another table full of people.

There are basically two types of places that you can eat outdoors at in London. Firstly there’s the ‘trendy’ restaurants (most of which transform themselves into an even trendier bar at night), and then there’s the traditional English-style pubs that often have a beer garden or a few sets of tables and chairs out the front.

There are literally thousands of restaurants in London, and the best places to find the most reasonably priced ones (compared to the quality of their food) is in places such as Soho (basically right in the centre of London), Leicester Square, the South Bank and Covent Garden. Of all of these, Covent Garden has by far the most extravagant restaurants, and is also one of the most entertaining parts of the city, with any number of street acts (such as ‘human statues’ and jugglers) performing in the famous town square. The area really comes alive at night, and is a great place to visit if you’re just in London for the day. If you’re into more upmarket and exotic dishes, then you can’t look past Hoxton Square. The area is seen as the trendiest part of London currently.

Middlesbrough is Back at the Top Table of English Football

The Pride of the North East

Pride of the North East is a richly deserved title given Middlesbrough Football Club's recent results, sharing the spoils away to title contenders Arsenal and Manchester City.

Few people outside the north east expected Boro to make a fist of it amongst the big boys feasting at the top table of English football this season. Although the club might lack a glut of star players and expensive signings, what they do possess is one of the brightest young coaches in the game, having honed his coaching skills under the watchful eye of Jose Mourinho at Real Madrid, at a time when his star burnt brightly in the firmament. As you'll discover later, Mourinho was linked with another famous Middlesbrough coach as he took his first tentative steps in his coaching career.

When Aitor Karanka was appointed as Boro's first foreign manager in November 2013, the club may have appeared to be taking a gamble on raw talent, rather than playing it safe with a trustworthy pair of hands with extensive experience of the British game. A lack of success at the hands of Gordon Strachan and Tony Mowbray, may well have influenced their thinking.

This leads me to reflect on a period in Boro's history, when the club's hierarchy in their wisdom decided to turn towards Malcolm Allison, who at one time just like Karanka was considered to be one of the brightest young coaches of his generation. The difference being, that when Big Mal turned up at the old Ayresome Park stadium in October 1982, his star as a visionary coach was very much on the wane.

Ironically when Malcolm Allison was manager of Portuguese side Vitoria Setubal just before his dramatic arrival on Teesside, he was aided by former Boro conditioning coach Roger Spray and an ambitious young coach by the name of Jose Mourinho. While the special one's stock might be currently on the decline, as was the case with Big Mal during his fateful spell with Boro, few would argue that in their heyday, they were the brightest coaches of their era. As a fitting tribute to Big Mal, who sadly departed from this world in October 2010, Roger Spray holds him in such high esteem as to consider him as influential as Mourinho and Arsene Venger!

The club being in dire financial straits further compounded the depression enveloping the Boro faithful. While neighbors Sunderland were given the tag of 'Bank of England' in the late 1950s due to their abundance of cash, the early 1980s was a time for drastic financial measures at Ayresome Park.

When you consider that the club is today valued at around £ 87 million and that the incumbent English manager by the name of Southgate opened the floodgates and splashed a whopping £ 13.6 million on the record breaking signing of Brazilian Afonso Alves during the 2007-08 season , Allison's antics seems to belong in a long forgotten distant past!

When Big Mal was lured to Teesside by ambitious chairman Mike McCullagh, the club was bottom of the old second division, attracting gates of only 5,000, half a million pounds in debt and losing £ 12,000 a week!

Today the average attendance at the Riverside is an impressive 30,000 in stark contrast with the poorest crowd since the Second World War of only 5,435 that witnessed their home game against Fulham in March 1984. Almost inevitably this led to Allison being relieved of his managerial duties. With Middlesbrough having finished in sixteenth position in the old second division during his first season, the club's heroic effort in holding Arsenal to a 1-1 draw in their FA Cup fifth round home tie, represented the zenith of his short stint with the club. Unfortunately time was not of the essence and Big Mal failed in his quest to revive the sleeping giant of the North East!

The manager's antics and double standards were reminiscent of scenes familiar to viewers of the Carry On films of that period. In keeping with his reputation for an insatiable appetite for stunning birds and the high life, Allison was in his seventh heaven, entertaining his female companions courtesy of the finest champagne at the Baltimore Hotel, while running up a hefty bill of £ 3,500. In comical fashion, his answer to the required harsh financial measures was to sack the club's tea man on £ 18 per week! Fortunately the man capable of a fine brew was reinstated following assurances that the players would pay his princely wage!

Big Mal, always one for the limelight, embarked on his mission to bring stars to the Teesside gloom, with ambitious efforts to sign George Best from San Jose Earthquakes and the Liverpool duo David Johnson and David Fairclough! He succeeded only in signing the ex- Ipswich Town star Kevin Beattie to bolster his defense, although by this time he was crocked by knee injuries! Indeed some would say that his best capture came off the field in the form of local beauty, 28 year old school teacher Lynn Salten, by far the classiest act on show!

Today the footballing landscape has changed beyond recognition with Middlesbrough plying their trade at the wonderful Riverside Stadium and recipients of the huge sums of money assured by entry to the top table of English football.

Whether Karanka and his charges can preserve their premier league status remains to be seen, but the Boro faithful will be encouraged by recent accomplished performances. Some would say that football has come a long way since the 1980s, but it seems that today's global nature and rich trappings of the premier league, seems to have left our beautiful game void of true characters like Malcolm Allison, who despite failure on the field , certainly lit up the North East with rich experiences that will forever be a part of Middlesbrough Football Club's folklore!
