  • London Light/London Life 6 - Friends for Life

    Normally I'm not a fan of taking pictures of homeless people, I think its a subject that is tricky to do well and often feels exploitative more than informative. But I really could resist shooting this chap, it was clear that he shared a very st...

    Its not often you walk out of work and straight on to a film set. But this afternoon as I left work and walked across the front of The Royal exchange I noticed there was a lot of serious camera equipment. I stood around for a while watching what wa...

  • 365 Day 365 - Celebration

    So today was a double celebration - my birthday and the completion of my 365 project. In fact as I started on my birthday I think I might have actually done a 366 (must have messed up the numbering I think). It has been a really big challenge b...

  • 365 Day 361 - Fallen and Forgotten

    I came across these dead flowers tied to the railings at Bank Station today, were they for someone who had died in Bank Station? possibly threw themselves under a train or maybe they were run over on the road outside? Who knows:
