Thanks for dropping by. All clicks and comments very much appreciated. Smile

I like documentary and street photography, but a bit of anything else on the side. I tend not to use Photoshop too much, just sticking to the basic adjustments, but sometimes break free to try something "arty".

Thank you for visiting. I love seeing all your photos and hope you like mine.

  • Dinosaur

    Just a snap of the motorised dinosaur at the Natural History Museum. Quite fun.

  • Festival 2017

    Took a few shots at the Festival of Remembrance last night but the light was very low and it wasn't really appropriate to keep snapping away. Anyway, I got one shot of the drums of the Welsh Guards, the centrepiece of the remembrance, and a shot of ...

  • Shwing

    The new installation at Tate Modern. Went there yesterday (not for the swings), and the place was packed with crocodiles of schoolkids laying around on the floor and generally getting in the way and making lots of noise. OK, so I'm an old fogey, bu...

  • Gummy Pics

    Whilst crossing the Millennium Bridge today I spotted a few new chewing gum pictures produced by Ben Wilson. I particularly liked this one.

  • Lumix 30mm Macro

    A lovely little lens which I've enjoyed using for various subjects. Apart from insects and flowers, it gives a nice perspective on other things, such as this collection of drills. I can see me using this quite a lot. Works best on Manual for very ...

  • Goodbye to Bad Luck

    I've had these earrings about 25 years and hardly worn them. I wore them a few weeks ago and had a really bad day, just everything went wrong. Seeing as I really have no use for them I've dumped them, hopefully with any bad luck. They brought back...

  • Autumn Leaves

    Everyone does it every year, but might as well document it. The cherry tree outside my bedroom window is looking pretty and at least it blocks out the view of the houses over the road, which can only be a good thing. The bad thing is the leaves and...

  • Memento

    My dad bought this small, white-metal compact for my mum when he was in Basra during WWII. The street vendor carved my mum's name across the heart in the middle over 55 years ago. She just found it in a drawer on the weekend and was going to throw ...

  • On The Way Out

    A last fling for the flowers, and the bees. Just a little flutter of the petals before they curl up and go brown.

  • What's for Dinner?

    OK, so I was a bit peckish and looked around for a relaxing venue where I could get some lunch. I gave up on this one though. Perhaps the food was so bad they had to hide the menu. :D

  • Wilko and John

    Went to the RAH last night to see Wilko Johnson. One of his guests was John Cooper-Clarke and I just about managed to get one fairly useable pic to put in the blog. These old-timers carn't 'arf move. :)

  • The Birds on the Block

    I was sitting outside a cafe watching the birds, who I have to say are very on the ball when it comes to scavenging for bits of sandwich or cake, when these two popped up on the railings. It looks a bit naff but they were nicely framed against a cle...

  • The Best Day This Year

    What a fab day it was yesterday. Went to the coast where the breeze was just a lovely, cool temperature, the sun was shining and the aroma of seaweed was beautifully wafting onshore. Had a super walk, took lots of photos, had a nice lunch at the caf...

  • Gotta Get Going

    Now that summer's out of the way and the weather's cooling down I can dust off the old Leki walking sticks and get out Nordic Walking again. Great exercise and lots of fresh air. :)

  • Frankie and Friend

    Just a shot I took in the garden a few days ago. The stuffed dog used to be my old cat Gracie's constant companion; she loved it and used to sleep with it. Frankie, being a bloke, is more the outdoor type so I photographed them together doing what ...
