Elvis Presley Birthplace, USA

A road trip picture. Once upon a time, for my holiday, I would pick 3 or places (in different states) and then spend a week or so travelling to each of them, stopping the car when I saw something interesting. Lots of time spent listening to the radio, watching the landscape slowly change outside. IContinue reading “Elvis Presley Birthplace, USA”

Tammisaari, Finland

Sometimes, I think being from the UK makes the rest of the world seem a much more dramatic place. People start to moan when the weather even gets near to 0 and when it goes a couple of degrees below, certain newspapers start trumpeting about an”arctic vortex”, when really, it is just a bit cold.Continue reading “Tammisaari, Finland”

River, Clayton, GA

I don’t find it easy to take square landscapes. Here I was trying to use the curve of the river’s edge to lead your eye through the frame, but I’m not sure it works. I believe Clayton is in the north of Georgia where once you might have found bears in the countryside, but noContinue reading “River, Clayton, GA”

Garden, Japan

I wander between photographing in squares and rectangles. My squares tend to be more thoughtful, because I’m using an inverted image on a ground glass which is just a slower way of doing things. I really enjoyed my visit to the Kyoto Imperial Palace, it is beautifully cared for and the staff give the impressionContinue reading “Garden, Japan”

Fire Station No.11, Atlanta

Two views of the same subject. When you first move to new area, you make a real effort to explore and take in where you live. So when I moved to Georgia, I spent quite a while exploring downtown Atlanta. It turns out, Fire Station No11 is quite a famous building, which is on theContinue reading “Fire Station No.11, Atlanta”

Foliage, Tokyo

This is a photograph I took in Ueno Park, which is in the centre of Tokyo. If we zoomed out, you would see that Ueno is the distict where the Zoo and National Museum are (a fascinating place as well). It is rather beautiful and manages rich colours, even in the middle of winter. Although,Continue reading “Foliage, Tokyo”

Senate House, London

Senate House is one of Bloomsbury’s landmarks, along with the British Museum and Russell Square. Designed by Charles Holden as part of a larger development which was never built. Construction lasted between 1932-1937. This was one of the first pictures I took with my (new to me) Rolleiflex. The original print is beautifully rich inContinue reading “Senate House, London”

Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial Fountain, London

One of the things about being off the coast of a continent, is that you can never be quite sure what the weather will do next. Last March, just as we were coming out of winter, it suddenly snowed quite heavily and gave us all a surprise. One month later, the snow has gone andContinue reading “Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial Fountain, London”

Broken Window, Lafayette, AL

Do you ever look back on your youth and wonder how you ended up doing what you did? There was a time, when I went on a series of road trips around the southern United States. On this particular trip I wandered through Alabama and Mississippi. I think I may have been heading to Tupelo,Continue reading “Broken Window, Lafayette, AL”
