Taken at a café in Cucuron, south eastern France.
Another shot from the Jurassic Coast in Dorset. I walked down the hill from the sub tropical gardens and was quite taken with this lone windswept tree. I’m hoping to get out around London for some more urban photography in … Continue reading
Having not got out with the camera at the weekend I was left with either, delving into the archives or experimenting in Photoshop with a recent image. I chose the latter. This was a pretty boring shot of rolling greens … Continue reading
This is the sheep drive that took place in London on Saturday as part of the London Architecture Week. A flock of sheep we’re driven from Borough Market to Smithfield Market across the Millennium Bridge. Thousands turned up to watch; … Continue reading
This is the County Hall Island Block in London and demolition work has just started to tear it to the ground. It’s been sitting empty gathering graffiti (and god knows what else) for the last twenty years and it’s going … Continue reading
Although this is the same subject as the previous shot, I felt it was sufficiently different to post. I’ve taken advantage of the white cloudy sky and blown it totally here. I was aiming to add a more sickly, medical, … Continue reading
This sculpture is called “The Virgin Mother” by Damien Hirst. It’s in the courtyard at The Royal Academy of Arts. The bronze statue reveals the woman’s skull, muscles, tissue and unborn child. It’s fascinating, slightly disturbing, but truly wonderful. I … Continue reading
As with yesterday’s shot, I’m still focusing on the details. I think I need to get out and get some people shots again.
I managed to find a good vantage point to get this shot of London. Then I used a fantastic Photoshop plugin to give me the fake-tilt-shift grainy-plastic-london look. Awesome. 😉
“Death Warmed Up” would be a good description for how I feel at the moment. No chance to get out with the camera, so I’ve been scouring the archives again.
Well, I’ve had a few days off although not completely away from the camera. It literally does go everywhere with me. But I didn’t manage to capture anything I was that happy with so I decided to go through some … Continue reading
Yesterday I managed to get a few good shots of Eros with lovely blue skies and fluffy white clouds and I was just going to post one of those. But once I started to process this in Photoshop I took … Continue reading
Thanks for all the comments on yesterday’s shot. When there’s rain in London, I just can’t seem to stop myself going reflection hunting. Anyway, this was taken a moment after yesterday’s. I just liked the way the sun was quickly … Continue reading
This is the hole that is underneath this tower. It’s equally as impressive. This was an extremely busy, but interesting shot in colour. Whilst processing it I thought I’d just try it in black and white and it instantly became … Continue reading
I’m really not sure about this one. Having nothing else to post I thought I would try a photoshop exercise with an archived shot. I’m not sure if the selection I made around The Clock Tower, to darken the sky, … Continue reading
I spent the weekend in Brighton and although I didn’t get much use out of the camera I thoroughly enjoyed the visit. We stayed at Blanch House which was fantastic and if you ever go for a weekend I’d highly … Continue reading
Thanks for all the comments on yesterday’s shot, the response made me glad that I had taken the effort and gone out with the camera in the dark and freezing cold. This is another shot from the Isle of Wight … Continue reading
I’m running low on shots at the moment and I’m feeling decidedly ‘off colour’ when I pick up the camera. So this is something I took a while back which I decided to process it a little differently to my … Continue reading
Niqab. Update: Looks like I’m still in the running for The Urbs 2005 : World’s Best Urban Photoblog albeit second from last. You also have to scroll right down the page, which obviously doesn’t help.
Not a great deal to say about this image other than I like it. It was taken at the wedding I was at over the weekend. The Lemongrove played some very cool jazz for most of the late evening. This … Continue reading
We visited Florence on Saturday, or Firence as the Italians like to spell it. I was a bit disappointed as it was overcast all day so there were no opportunities for shots of the stunning churches and cathedrals against blue … Continue reading
I’ve been wanting to try this for some time, having seen the work of Canon-Craig, but I could never seem to find the right images to put side by side. These were both taken on the South Bank yesterday afternoon. … Continue reading
I did think about posting this image in colour, but in black and white it just seemed more interesting. Obviously the absence of colour draws your attention to the subject but it also makes you really think about what you’re … Continue reading
