This is an " is it just me? " thread. Rouleur; brilliant articles, fabulous guest photo essays ( Cartier Bresson, Frank Capa ) but absolutely pish photos. If I see another artsy fartsy out of focus shot of a broom handle or dead hedgehog near an underlit velodrome I'll scream!!

Discuss.

To write off all the photographic content as 'pish' would be a bit harsh. Their Photo Annuals do have some great stuff in them. Ben Ingham really hits the mark sometimes but I can only take his work (and the magazine for that matter) in small doses.
The hardened cynic inside me gets a bit tired of the 'epic' Rapha 'suffering' thing, I'd say that brand has become a modern cycling cliché already, and its influence over Rouleur is quite clear.
