Trees in Moonlight, West Sussex

My first post of the second lockdown! I’m back to walking in the park either early in the morning, or late at night, when sensible people are snug in bed. I missed the full moon (which was smothered by thick cloud anyway), but I’m still pleased with the amount you can see. In reality, itContinue reading “Trees in Moonlight, West Sussex”

Lightning, Batu Ferringhi

I used to live here, with a view of the sea. In good weather, the sea had a green/blue tinge to it. When there was a storm, it was dark green. I lived near the top of a high block of flats with a front row view whenever a storm came in. In Malaysia, theyContinue reading “Lightning, Batu Ferringhi”

Roxette Concert, Beijing

Last post of the year. I was sorry to read of Marie Fredriksson’s passing on the 10th December. Apart from their chart hits (which aren’t always a real reflection of a band) I didn’t know much about Fredriksson or Roxette. My wife however, who is younger than me, is a big fan. So when IContinue reading “Roxette Concert, Beijing”

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”

Shakira, San Salvador

In a rash moment, I splashed out for VIP tickets to see Shakira and as a consequence, I was not that far from the stage. VIP feels like the wrong word. She was very popular at the time – i think “Hips Don’t Lie” had just come out. But, it did mean that I couldContinue reading “Shakira, San Salvador”

Riding a Bicycle in Bejing

Thanks to Katie Melua, most people tend to think of Beijing as a place with lots bicycles and 30 years ago, that was probably true. No so much now. Mostly cars. But, there is lots of street life, which I was trying to show a little bit here. And there is a bicycle. Sometimes, whenContinue reading “Riding a Bicycle in Bejing”

Walking in Snow

Last year, as we were almost past Spring, the clouds suddenly emptied a layer of snow on us. I can remember looking out my classroom window and seeing large snowflakes cartwheeling down the window to the ground. I love walking at night, Berkshire can be quite urban, so that is when it is quietest. IContinue reading “Walking in Snow”

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”

A View of Hong Kong Island

I never really left the UK until I was well into my thirties. Never felt I had the money, or to be honest, the inclination. But then, I got a job working overseas – and it has never really stopped since then. This is a composite made from about five photographs of Hong Kong. AllContinue reading “A View of Hong Kong Island”

Motorbike Couple – Christmas 2013, Ho Chi Minh City

        Couple – Christmas Eve, Ho Chi Minh City, 2014 One of the things I really like about Ho Chi Minh City, is the amount of life that goes on at the street level. Sometimes there are motorcycle traffic jams, where the riders are shoulder to shoulder at the traffic lights, andContinue reading “Motorbike Couple – Christmas 2013, Ho Chi Minh City”
