They say, “Don’t work with animals or children”. But as you can see, some animals make good subjects. I like that he has given me good eye contact – I think I did something to get his attention (shameless preformer that I am). People make all sorts of claims for their portraits, but I thinkContinue reading “Inka, Somerset”
After what has felt like age, it has finally rained. In the UK we have had several weeks of hot weather, so this has felt very welcome. I found this feather on some park land I like to walk on every morning – I’m trying to decide what sort of bird it came from –Continue reading “Feather, West Sussex”
Writing this, in early August 2020, I hope things are well with you. How are you spending lockdown? For my part, I’m so be getting into different routines – here I was just about to water some lavender seedlings – when I thought I would take a quick photo. For some reason, i thought thatContinue reading “Lavender, West Sussex”
After what seems like weeks of sunshine, finally thick, grey clouds appeared and heavy rain fell. Went outside for a while to enjoy the cool breeze and splashes of rain. One of the positive things about the lockdown has been more time to enjoy my garden. What I liked here, where the little spheres ofContinue reading “Raindrops, West Sussex”

How do you feel about symmetry? The waterlily is placed on thirds in the frame, but in itself symmetrical. For myself, I find symmetry rather unsettling – like a bow tie – so I like things to be slightly different.
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”
This is from a fence outside a nightclub in Hong Kong. What are the locks for? Perhaps for employee lockers (outside the club)? There was a time when I quite often visited Hong Kong, and my kind of day – would be just wandering around – seeing what was going on. For the photography buffs,Continue reading “Locks on a Fence – Hong Kong”
