Lasts, Osaka

My favourite thing to do, if I go somewhere on holiday, is to spend time just wandering around. If you ever go to Osaka, chances are you will have a list of attractions you want to see (Osaka Castle, the Osaka Aquarium…), but I nearly always find that the journey there is more interesting thanContinue reading “Lasts, Osaka”

On The Bund, Shanghai

The title really should be “View from the Bund” because all the tall buildings you can see are on the other side of the Huangpu River. As you can see, there is a wide path for people to walk by the river, which is pleasant when there is a gentle breeze (perhaps with an iceContinue reading “On The Bund, Shanghai”

Morris Men, Wokingham

This is an example of a “found” photo, I was walking to the supermarket, when I came upon these men dancing outside my local pub. The UK can be like that – nearly everywhere is. If I were to give this a little more time, I would like to bring the sky in a littleContinue reading “Morris Men, Wokingham”

On the Pier – Bognor Regis

An obvious view of beach at Bognor Regis. It was a gorgeous week day, when I caught the train down to Bognor. I intended to test a film camera, but it promptly jammed – which old cameras will do. So it was iPhone time instead. I like the neat, fluffy white waves which have beenContinue reading “On the Pier – Bognor Regis”

Tree in the Park, London

I have a theory, that my real hobby is walking and that photography just happens along the way. I think people have said similar things about golf. I was really drawn to the colour of the leaves on the tree, which looked a little like flames. And then there was the very short, neat grassContinue reading “Tree in the Park, London”

Double Rainbow in a Field, Batheaston

I took this picture one afternoon as I walked home from Bath (a city in the UK). It was mid-afternoon. A challenge with a panoramic, is that at least half of the pleasure is in the scale of thing – and here it is just a little rectangle on colour. I like the “slice ofContinue reading “Double Rainbow in a Field, Batheaston”

In the Morning, Batheaston

A well-known photographic adage is “the best camera, is the one you have with you”. On this occasion, as I walked to Bath on a fairly chilly Autumn morning, I only had my iphone with me – so it is what I used to take this picture. When I look at photos, I’m looking forContinue reading “In the Morning, Batheaston”

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”
