  • Warrior

    I've shot the H.M.S. Warrior before with a mobile phone (for some reason I never seem to have my camera with me when I see it), but have to say that the iPhone image beats the Nokia image hands down - both before and after processing. This is the ...

  • Deck Chairs

    Beautiful weather, crowds of people enjoying the sunshine, yet these deck chairs didn't seem to be very popular. Maybe people thought it was too windy to sit here? Who knows. Anyway, I quite liked them without anybody in them...

  • Sculptures

    Sculptures don't always blend in well with their environment, but these sculptures seem to be in exactly the right place, are appropriate for their surroundings, and are even in the right colour. A perfect match, I'd say.

  • Slow Shutter App

    I've had the Slow Shutter app for iPhone for a while now, and tried it out in different situations. I was never very happy with the results. But last Saturday I decided to give it a try under completely different circumstances: at a dance, to blu...

  • Unfortunate Choice

    Some people are so keen to avoid parking fees that they forget to read signs warning them for the incoming tide. This was certainly an ill-chosen parking spot, don't you think?

  • So Simple

    Some simple things can be so nice. As the light was fading the other day, the thing in the room that really stood out, was my computer mouse. I only paid a couple of euros for it, but I rather like this mouse. And when I saw it lighting up in a da...

  • There'll Be Bluebirds Over...

    ... the White Cliffs of Dover, according to Very Lynne - but I suspect that seagulls are a more likely sighting there. Oh well. I've always liked those cliffs. Not only are they such a nice welcome when you arrive in Dover, but they really are a s...

  • Unusual

    I've done something very, very unusual today. Well, that is to say, it's highly unusual for me. I know other people do it. But I normally don't. I think that in five years or so I've only done it twice. Or possibly three times. Which isn't very often...

  • Goodbye, Ashley

    Today I've done what has been unthinkable for so long, but became inevitable in the end: I've said goodby to my best canine friend ever, my dear Ashley. Read my previous two blog posts if you want to know why this was necessary, because I don't re...

  • Ashley's Holiday

    The health of my best canine friend Ashley is going downhill so fast now that I've reluctantly concluded that it's time to say goodbye. But before that actually happens, I want to remember the good times. And those good times are so recent - even...

  • Ashley's Meds

    My poor doggy is like a pharmacy on four legs by now. Apart from the cancer that she beat but which seems to be returning now, the arthrosis, the allergies and skin condition, she has a number of new, additional problems now as well. And after announ...

  • The End of an Era

    Today it was a final goodbye to my Canon kit, and a hello to my new small and lightweight Olympus kit: an OM-D E-M5 with a 12-50 lens. Talking to the dealer, I reminisced about my early photographic beginnings. It all started with my father fe...

  • Vintage Pulpit Rock

    Even when I'm taking photos with a 'proper' camera, I nowadays often can't resist taking pictures with my iPhone as well and having a play with them. And this is one of the results. Not exactly Gallery material, but there's still something about i...

  • Reenactment

    I really like the idea of reenactments, they put you in the middle of something that really brings history to life for you, especially when a lot of care is taken to make it as realistic as possible. But apart from a jousting event in Devon I'd never...
