Visited Osborne House today and spent the day on Queen Victoria’s Beach which has just opened. You get some amazing views of the house on the stroll towards the beach.
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 Ram Rod D’arcy and I met him whilst on the tour of Young’s Brewery in Wandsworth at the weekend. It’s well worth going on, during the week if you can, especially because at the end of the tour … Continue reading
See if you can guess where this is in London. There’s some clues in the title.
They say if you see red, shoot it. This is what happens.
This is another shot from the archives. I’ve come down with something ‘not very nice’ so didn’t get out today at all and I’m unlikely to tomorrow. Unless of course I’m inspired whilst shuffling around the house and feeling sorry … Continue reading
Someone told me about this a few days ago, so I rushed down there today when the sun briefly broke through the rain clouds. I’m so glad I did, because this has to be seen to be believed. This is … Continue reading
We visited Lucca again today and as I’ve said previously, it is a stunningly beautiful place. The Rough Guide to Tuscany describes it as graceful and I couldn’t agree more. This is a view from the top of the tower … Continue reading
Here’s one of the pictures that I took of Lucca’s Piazza Anfiteatro the other day. At first I thought it was a little so so, but it’s growing on me now. I might try and go back early one morning … Continue reading
This is the Australian War Memorial at Hyde Park Corner, London. The wall is set with 24,000 names of the home towns of Australian men and women who served during the two world wars. Superimposed on these place names are … Continue reading
This is terrible I know, but there is a reason. I pass this sign almost every day, it’s in Victoria Underground station, and I love it. Every time I pass it I keep thinking I should take a picture. But … Continue reading
I got no time yesterday to get any shots and I’m finding it hard to pick something from the archives at the moment. This was taken last week in Paddington Street Gardens. It’s of a marble statue called Street Orderly … Continue reading
I spent my Friday evening in Piccadilly Circus just people watching and looking for non-obvious opportunities. Every time I framed a shot I’d end up with a photoblogger in my view. They were everywhere! I’m just assuming they were bloggers, … Continue reading
This is a 1920’s industrial shuttle from a loom. A colleague of mine at work had two of these that he’d won on eBay. I liked the texture of the wood against the brass and the wound cotton, which unfortunately … Continue reading
Not sure about this one. I’ve got a niggling feeling that I may just be posting for the sake of posting. So I’ll post it and see how I feel in the morning. This is from an Animal War Heroes … Continue reading
Today, although hot, was dismally overcast and I really struggled to get an interesting shot in the little time I had. So here are some of the hieroglyphics from one of the sphinxes in Crystal Palace Park. I was drawn … Continue reading
Flowers again, but this time they’re not real and this was simply an experiment in black & white for me. These are the flowergirl’s flowers from a statue in Covent Garden Market. To celebrate 25 years of the reopened Market, … Continue reading
I spend a lot of my time walking around Crystal Palace Park and it saddens me to see the ruins of this once amazing structure. But yesterday, with the sun shining, even the cracks and weeds looked beautiful. I’ll leave … Continue reading
