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.

  • Thoughtful

    A sign on the London Underground indicating that rubbish should be put in the bin. Well, no bin, so some thoughtful soul hung their food bag on it. :) On the way home however, someone had abandoned their bag of empty food boxes on the train and it ...

  • Rosewood Carving

    Found some beautifully carved wooden items in a gallery at The British Museum this week. They are so tiny and the carving so exquisite it doesn't seem possible. This is one of the items with the explanation.

  • Way to Go

    Itching to get some new shots but can't find the enthusiasm while it's still so cold. But managed one or two at Oxford Street with my little compact when I was out shopping. I like the urgency in the face of this chap.

  • Goodnight Dear Tom

    This little fella came into my brother's home 10 years ago as a puppy. Today he died. He had a wonderful life and was lively and happy till the end. We're all going to miss him so much. Nighty night dear Tom. xxx

  • No More!!!

    OK, NYR time. This year it's not to buy anything new that is not absolutely necessary. (Except books ;)). My latest two are Bystander and Moriyama. The Moriyama is very interesting. He's not a photographer that I've looked at much, but having bou...

  • Grasses

    There were some wonderfully tall grasses over the reserve. I just took a quick snap and converted to b/w. I took the clarity filter right down to give a feathery look and upped the highlights to add a bit of sparkle to the grass heads.

  • A Walk in the Reserve

    Rainham Marshes yesterday. A lovely bright and chilly day and just right for a walk out with my new lens, the Panasonic 100-400mm. I took lots of pics but as it was only my second outing with the lens, and I had hubs to think about too, I didn't l...

  • Messing About on Boats

    These canoes in the middle of the lake are a great resting place for ducks, cormorants and gulls. Always covered in muck, but quite picturesque. :)

  • Frostie and Frosty

    We didn't see Frostie at his usual time so I expect he was at his home in the warm. But he eventually arrived for his breakfast. I don't think he's seen snow before.

  • Nativity

    Sunday's nativity play at the stables. Attended by a couple of hundred people with our small riders playing parts. The ponies behaved perfectly - no mishaps this year, but there was a bit of a kerfufle in the manger between the angel and the shepherd...

  • Built to Last

    I do dislike seeing nests full of rubbish that the birds have collected. Perhaps they like some bits of plastic and shiney things.

  • Torch

    I liked this dinky little torch that my OH keeps in the car in case of emergencies. Only a couple of inches long and very bright. Think I'll get one.

  • My Favourite Vase

    I rarely get flowers as my husband is allergic and can't stand the smell either. But I love this vase, so at Christmas I get some lovely silvery twigs and fill it with them. Anyway, just a shot of my fave vase for the record.

  • 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 ...
