  • 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 surp...0

  • 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 Ri...0

  • 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...0

  • 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 ...0

  • 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 beauti...0

  • 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 fi...0

  • 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 e...0

  • 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 ...0

  • 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...0

  • 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 an...0

  • 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 ...0

  • 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 ...0

  • 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. Som...0

  • 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 morb...0

  • 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'...0
