Lo! Tis Christmas...

It was the week before Christmas... God looked down from Heaven and observed the people of Great Britain. He sighed, shook his head, and reached for his mobile. He tapped in the message and sent the text off to the Devil. The Devil was not surprised to get the text, it was the same every year....

Norfolk and Good...

According to Stephen Fry - "You either get Norfolk, with its wild roughness and uncultivated oddities, or you don't. It's not all soft and lovely. It doesn't ask to be loved." I get Norfolk, but then, I've lived there all my life... Lilias Rider-Haggard got it too, and wrote in her...

Putting it in perspective

I've just been looking at a photo which rather puts certain things in perspective... It is one of those "iconic" images that win prizes, and should have really changed the world. One of those photographs that you look at and think "Oh God, that is so awful, how can that happen? We...

My Mate Murphy

Why oh why do things always go wrong at the least convenient time possible? I really really love my 40D... but sometimes it really tests my devotion to the limit... 360 odd days of the year the camera performs perfectly, turning out images one after the other, on and on, without even the meres...

Trust

Who can you trust? Can you trust what you see, or is everything a deception? Can you ever really trust anything or anyone? Does such a thing as truth actually exist these days? Does it matter anyway? The tourist brochure shows a beautiful scene, a sandy beach with a few scattered bath...

Ponies, passion & photography

Over the years I've spent many a happy hour in the company of ponies and their young riders. Initially the time was spent trying to teach them how to stay on top of the animal in every situation, more recently I have been photographing them. I'm finding the photography slightly easier than the tea...

Having it all...

Is it just me, or does anyone else think that it's not just the bankers & govt to blame for the so-called credit crunch? Maybe we are all guilty because we want, and have, too much... It starts with the 400 baby buggy and designer sleepsuit and ends with the bespoke coffin and the hearse dra...

Spring has sprung...

Everyone seems to be quite thrilled about the arrival of spring... I suppose it's nice to see the start of another growing season, although the nettles seem to be overtaking everything else now. I'm struggling to get all excited about it, but to be honest, early spring doesn't do much for me... ...

What is a photograph?

The first dictionary that comes to hand describes "photograph" as a "picture formed by means of the chemical action of light or other radiation on a sensitive surface" Chemical action... hmmm... Tis a very old dictionary, so I think we can assume that in these enlightened tim...

Spring Cleaning

Hmm, spring has sprung... allegedly. I thought it was maybe time to do a bit of spring cleaning. First job had to be clearing out the camera bag. I discovered things I didn't know I had, let alone ever used... there was a strange slidey bracket and strap thingy, designed to help support a long le...

Another Suffolk Meet

Another Suffolk Meeting Ok, I'm a week late writing this... as usual, I was late for the last Suffolk EPZ meet too! It wasn't the thought of staggering across Herringfleet marshes in the pre-dawn gloom that put me off, so much as the difficulty finding someone to do the early morning animal rou...

Stormy Weather

While the rest of the country has been "enjoying" snow, here in my part of East Anglia we were subjected to heavy rain and a howling gale from the northeast, of all places... Not quite sure how much rain there was overnight, but the yard appeared to have a river running through it and 50% ...

Fit For Photos

I've been looking at a few heavyweight lenses, thinking I could maybe cut down the number clogging up my rucksack. I was interested in a 28-300L until I found out how much it weighed... I also aspired to owning a 1DSmk111 until I picked one up. Somehow I think it's time to get fit! I couldn't fac...

Viva La Vida

Or Death and All His Friends... to give the Coldplay album it's full title. I believe that if you are Mexican it roughly translates as "long live life"... Some songs get me thinking about life, death & stuff, which is never good... I just get morbid and start missing all the people ...

Skin Deep

I've recently started doing a bit of portrait photography, which I'm finding a great challenge. Finding willing victims to model for me is proving difficult. A few young friends have volunteered, but most friends of my own age go "Eeeek! no way! I'm hideous!" They are no way approaching...
