The village of Chalgrove is a lovely little village in Oxfordshire where some of my ancestors were born and raised, therefore I have a special interest in its origins and its history. I finally got to visit there a couple of weeks ago to photograph the Church and some of the lovely ...

Typical day out

Something I enjoy doing when I am out and about with my camera is taking what I call "everyday life scenes". Images that depict what some might say the 'norm', the 'usual', maybe you could even say the 'boring'. But the fact is that it is what people do everyday. Whether it be mums out s...

Queen Elizabeth II Jubilee

Firstly, I am not a royalist and the money spent this year for Her Majesty's Jubilee is estimated to be around 3 billions pounds.... that is obscene. So when I heard that she was to visit the Pace Corporation in Saltaire (the building next door to mine), I decided to take a short walk to mingle and...

THOUSANDS of people from all over the country queued for a rare opportunity to see Bingley’s famous Five Rise Locks from the canal bed over the weekend. It was drained so engineers could carry out vital repair work, with British Waterways taking the chance to replace four of the six giant gates. ...

365 Project: Day 19

Went out in search of some reflections today, so walked along the canal towpath from Saltaire to Shipley and beyond. Took a few different shots, but found these windows of an old building reflected in the rippling canal water quite interesting; hope some other viewers do as well..:)

365 Project: Day 18

Graffiti often catches my eye, and this little fellow saying 'hello' always makes me smile when I pass him on the canal at Shipley.

365 Project: Day 15

Rather chilly outside today, so decided to try out a few still life shots..which I am pretty rubbish at, so need the practice. I just realised that red peppers are fully ripe, the yellow and orange nearly ripe, and the green are "green" or not ripe..lol that's all I have to say tonight...

MMM... a frosty start to this morning, and a bright sunny day. Popped over to Roberts Park to take a few shots and caught this reflection in the weir. I haven't seen this particular tree reflected in this postion before... to me it looks really weird appearing right on the edge. Looks like 2 diffe...
