Yachts, Shoreham Beach

After 6 months of staying at home, I have started exploring further afield. In this case, about 20 miles away – so not that far! I used to live in Shoreham-by-Sea 40 years ago and whenever I go back I am reminded of what it was like as a child. The church at the endContinue reading “Yachts, Shoreham Beach”

Two Trees, West Sussex

I think I have missed my morning walk once during lockdown. Yesterday, it was quite cool and misty early on – but by the time I went out for my walk, the Sun was up and throwing long, dark shadows. And there is a contrast with the morning mist, which is slowly being burned off.

Tree at Sunset, West Sussex

Whether through design or cirumstance, seem to be photographing sunsets lately. In the UK, we have had sunshine for most of the lockdown period, which has made for some golden sunsets (see above). I’m wondering if the air is a little clearer because there are fewer cars on the roads – in the evening, thereContinue reading “Tree at Sunset, West Sussex”

Leaves, West Sussex

Like most people, my outdoor photography has been restricted by the lock-down. Which is why I have been posting pictures of things I’ve seen on my exercise walks. I could post things from the past – places I’ve been – but it feels irrelvant at the moment. This is a picture of some leaves onContinue reading “Leaves, West Sussex”

Two Trees, West Sussex

Because of restrictions, I find myself walking in the same places most of the time. Everytime I pass these two trees, they feel like a contrasting pair. Although it is early summer, as you can see with the dew on the grass, early in the morning, it is still cool.

Red Leaves and Blue Sky

I’m trying to remember which philosopher it was who talked about the power of being able to see the world a-new. Right now, we are all quite restricted where we can go and I find myself trying to find a new view of familar places. This morning I was rewarded with a blue sky toContinue reading “Red Leaves and Blue Sky”

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”

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”
