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.

  • For Alison

    I saw your comment on my first irises pic and misread is as "wooden pigeon" (which was puzzling). but I had to laugh because the chap next door gets fed up with me feeding the birds and every year he hangs an actual wooden pigeon from the large tree ...

    Quickly grabbed a pic of the irises contra-jour while I had the chance.

  • Pretty Flowers

    Just caught these before they go on the turn. I plant things in the garden but never remember where or what they are.

  • Baby or Shopping?

    You can't get away from prams, even in an art gallery. This one was full of shopping, and a baby - just about visible underneath all the books and stuff from the gift shop. At least it wasn't crying.

  • A Bit Blue

    I sort of liked this picture but it doesn't actually do or say anything. I jazzed it up with a bit of colour because I wanted to use it somewhere.

  • Loitering with Intent

    Nice shadows, so I took a snap while waiting for the lights to change. In fact I loitered around the crossing for quite some time trying to get some interesting interaction but there wasn't any, so this is it.

  • Squint

    A painting at Tate Modern. Unfortunately I forgot to snap the name of the artist, but this was a real optical and mental headache, although very pretty.

  • Another Go at Viv

    I suspect there were office workers behind this window but seeing as I couldn't see them it didn't bother me. Still trying to capture the essence of Vivian Maier, but a way to go yet. I was glad of the softness of the reflection, but the hair was be...

  • Not Vivian #2

    Another effort at a Vivian Maier. This time I'm in the mirror inside a sports shop. Got some funny looks.

  • Not Vivian

    I was browsing through my photo books yesterday and rediscovered Vivian Maier. So today I thought I'd give it a go - copying her SPs. I wasn't trying too hard as it's a bit embarrassing doing that stuff in the middle of Oxford Street, but I snapped...
