Technology: Foolproof phones are making a splash

I am a phone loser. I have said it loud and not-so-proud on these pages before. Seven handsets have slipped through my fingers – I swear they're like eels – this past two years alone. Lost, smashed, stolen, left unattended on an bus... the list goes on.

When Christopher visited where Harry met Sally...

And the website FILMography has made it all the more joyous with a collection of images that matches modern-day New York with stills from movies as diverse as The Dark Knight Rises, Leon and Annie Hall.

Cornel Lucas: Photographer who made his name as a pioneer of film portraiture

Cornel Lucas was widely regarded as one of the world's pioneers of film portraiture during the 1940s and 1950s, photographing the great and the good from both sides of the pond, in London and on film locations all over the world. He went on to become the first photographer to be recognised by the British Academy of Film and Television Arts, in 1998, for his service to the nation's film industry.

Nadine Dorries is no stranger to the cameras and they have rarely, if ever, been kind to her

Nadine Dorries: Hero or Villain?

There is a journalistic aphorism that if a dog bites a man it is not news, but if a man bites a dog it is. And yet in spite of this, newspapers thrive on stories about models doing drugs (shock!), footballers cheating on their wives (horror!) and, this past couple of weeks, a politician seeking to raise her profile by appearing in a reality television programme (gasp!).

Holiday snaps that reveal too much

Views from the top deck: A photography project conducted on London buses reveals a fresh side to city life

Top Deck tells the story of life in a city over the course of two years, as seen entirely from inside east London's buses. A collaboration by the photographers Will Robson-Scott and James Pearson-Howes, it is a love-note to the capital, capturing the cultural variety and rugged beauty of the place in which they were both born and raised. Shooting from a bus, Robson-Scott explains, "you can show the diversity… a route like the 149 goes through the City that is full of bankers and hedgefund managers. Then, within half an hour, you're in Tottenham, known for its crime and social problems".
