Feather, West Sussex

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”

Gnomes! Bath

As a picturesque city, popular with tourists, Bath has a number of small museums. The Holbourne Museum is probably the prettiest of all of them. A few years ago it had a major renovation and now boasts a very attractive cafe with views of Sydney Gardens and the canal. They regularly host medium sized exhibitionsContinue reading “Gnomes!

Under the Seat, Vietnam

There was a time, when I used to travel by plane quite a bit, mostly short haul within South-East Asia. Most of the life to be seen was outside the window- hence my hundreds of views from above photos, but sometimes funny moments happened on the plane. My neighbour and I never really did meet.Continue reading “Under the Seat, Vietnam”

Two Cigars, China

I like pictures which pose questions- “Why did they throw away two almost unsmoked cigars?”. Perhaps they were getting into a car? Background info – Sanlitun is a very smart part of Beijing, where there a lots of designer shops and a number of countries’ embassies are based. Every day, armies of gardeners groom theContinue reading “Two Cigars, China”

Bodybuilding Club, Vietnam

Happy New Year! My first post of 2020 – is a sign for a bodybuilding club in Ho Chi Minh City! I like the strong use of colour and text – I’m not sure they’ve got the proportions quite right, although the varying skin tones are quite impressive. I love a good hand-painted sign.

An Eye on the Ground, London

Most of my photos come from long walks. I suppose my camera is a dog substitute, encouraging me out the door in the morning. While I sometimes enjoy taking pictures of people, more often, I take pictures of details I notice. Here, the tarmac round the access hatch has sunk and cracked, which to meContinue reading “An Eye on the Ground, London”

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”

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”
