After An Ice Storm, Emory 2001

When I moved to to Atlanta, I was convinced that I had managed to avoid a British winter and that it would be short sleeves all year round. You know, ‘cos it’s  next to Florida. As it turns out, I was wrong, and it was freezing! I think I found this picture in Emory, whichContinue reading “After An Ice Storm, Emory 2001”

Street Trader, Georgetown

I used to live in Penang. Street traders are a feature of life there, selling sweets and snacks from the back of a motorcycle. I am told the Roti Man delicacy is an ice-cream sandwich. I wish I had tried it. Technical Details Canon EOS 650D and 24mm STM lens. A really good combination forContinue reading “Street Trader, Georgetown”

Found on the River Bed, Chiswick

There is an “impossible” school of photography, who always want to tell you how complicated or difficult it was to take a particular photograph. While it can be interesting, it is irrelevant, ‘cos photography is about pictures.  The River Thames is tidal for much of its length, which means that at low tide, large stretchesContinue reading “Found on the River Bed, Chiswick”

By the beach, Penang 2015

Being from the UK, I always struggle with the idea that a place can be hot enough to live outside all year round. Here you can see someone fishing with a hand net, casting from the beach, probably for a restaurant which is just behind where I took this picture.   

In Helsinki, 2003

I didn’t really travel anywhere until I was in my thirties and even now (many years later), the list of places I would like to go is pretty long. Anyway, once upon a time, I visited Helsinki over a number of months, lazing in the long, warm summer evenings and when winter came, shivering inContinue reading “In Helsinki, 2003”

Holyrood Park, Edinburgh 2018

Years ago Kodak used to promote their materials with amazing landscape photographs – all done with large format cameras – as huge banners in places Grand Central Station – I think they called them Coloramas. And I’ve always loved that sort of thing. Anyway, took this picture last month month when I was in Edinburgh.Continue reading “Holyrood Park, Edinburgh 2018”

Leaf in the Park, Horsham

Another one of those “as I was wandering past” photographs. October in West Sussex was particularly mild this year, with a number of glorious sunny days. Horsham Park is pleasant green space near to the station where I often wait before catching a train. I think there are two types of  photographers: those who photographContinue reading “Leaf in the Park, Horsham”

Looking Down, Atlanta 2000

One of the things I love about photography, is how it encourages you to look around you for interesting details. I saw this in a Kroger’s car park near where I lived (very handy). I’ve tweaked the contrast a bit to make it clearer – but to me it looks like dogs face in theContinue reading “Looking Down, Atlanta 2000”

Goober Gun at Loreto Fest 2010

Too many landscapes lately – so I thought I would post from a concert. One of the nice things about less formal concerts, is that you can get a decent view of the stage, so it is quite easy to take pictures. Technically, concerts are quite difficult, because there isn’t a lot of ambient lightContinue reading “Goober Gun at Loreto Fest 2010”

Kyoto Garden, London 2018

Summer 2018 I lived in London for a long time before I even knew about Kyoto Garden. It is located in Holland Park – just off Kensington High Street.I like the colours and the landscape and the slightly grumpy peacocks who occasionally peck at people who get too close. On a cold morning or duringContinue reading “Kyoto Garden, London 2018”
