Taken at Kew Gardens. This guy was very real and had a good stare on him.
I love this image. There’s too much going on in the background and around the potter, but you can sense his focus and concentration. Your eyes get immediately drawn into the centre of the picture and you’re painting the bowl … Continue reading
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
I’ve been so busy and all over the place for the last week I just simply haven’t had to time to pick up the camera, let alone post anything to the blog. Thanks for all the comments on the last … Continue reading
Thanks for all the comments on my previous shot. I think Andy summed up my feelings about it. Good processing, but not quite the right subject. Anyway, here’s another shot using the Sony DSC-T9’s. For a small compact it gives … 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
Well I’ve not managed to get out with the camera much this week so I’m scraping the barrel a bit with this one. It did make me chuckle though. Oh, and if you didn’t know, the building it St Paul’s … Continue reading
Portrait anyone? Update: If anyone is interested this photobooth is here.
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
Yesterday I went out for a stroll with my friend Stephen. At this point he’d like me to point out we’re not gay. Anyway, I was considering not taking the camera as it would have been a little rude. But … Continue reading
Thanks for all the comments on yesterday’s shot. This is the other side of the same building and now you can see how ugly it is. Hence why it’s being torn down. I found it quite interesting that right next … 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
Well that’s a year gone and it really doesn’t seem like it. I’m going to get all teary eyed on you now… I tentatively posted my first picture on the 4th of June 2005, having only owned a digital SLR … Continue reading
This is the London College of Fashion building on Oxford Street. I just didn’t know what to do with regards to the processing on this shot so ended up adding some grain and trying an attempt at a seventies tone. … Continue reading
I was strolling between Piccadilly and Regent Street and I stumbled across this gaping void behind one of the buildings. It stopped me in my tracks, so thought it was worthy of a post.
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
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.
Guess what it’s doing in London? Again.
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
I was trying to capture a leaf spiralling in the wind, but this newspaper had other ideas.
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. 😉
I couldn’t think of a title for this one, so I chose what my son said when he saw it. “Big Red Digger”. This was taken from West Cowes in the Isle of Wight. I spent the weekend there, but … Continue reading
See if you can guess where this is in London. There’s some clues in the title.
As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, The Sultan’s Elephant was followed around London by a sea of people so I thought I’d show you The Sea of People. It’s interesting to see in this shot how many people have spotted … Continue reading
