Delving back into the archives for this one. Thanks for all the comments on yesterday’s post, but with Paul Woolrich’s comment I’m starting to feel I’ve got something to live up to now. I’m not sure if I like that … Continue reading
The final shot I’m going to post from the Selfridges shop windows. I think I may have over saturated this image, it looks *very* red on my screen. Let me know what you think.
Back to the archives again. This was taken some time ago, during Cowes Week 2005 and I’ve kept going back to it every now and then, pondering over whether to post it. So finally, here goes.
Back to archive raiding I’m afraid. So here’s a “maybe shot” I took whilst standing in a queue at the Apple store. I don’t think I’ve ever been in the Apple store and not stood in a queue.
This is Larry Barnes a.k.a “The Pearly King of Thornton Heath”. I was taking pictures of people standing in front of the shop windows at Selfridges on Oxford Street yesterday, but sadly not getting a great deal worthwhile. Then after … Continue reading
This was taken whilst I was getting some shots of earrings made by a friend of mine. I was trying to use the sunlight coming through a set of blinds and thought this was quite a good shot. The lighting … Continue reading
I try not to post too many pictures of my son, because it doesn’t really further my portraiture photography skills and the comments don’t usually go much further than “Ahhhhh”. He stands there and I point the camera. Then nine … Continue reading
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
As soon as this girl walked past me in her white boots this shot by John [shots] popped into my head. I just couldn’t resist attempting something similar. I actually spent the weekend around Winchester for a friends wedding and … Continue reading
Just to prove it’s not all architecture and fancy food. I’ve got a feeling John [shots] might like this one. If you’re not a regular visitor, I’m currently on holiday hence the non-London related pictures. Thanks for all your comments, … Continue reading
Before you ask, this isn’t in London. I’m in Filetolle near Pisa, Italy. After arriving on Saturday evening we’ve had two days of pure relaxing with good weather, good food and good wine. Tomorrow we’ll be out and about in … Continue reading
I’m running low on new shots at the moment so here’s one taken a while back that I’ve really been unsure about posting. Update: Oh, and this will explain the title of yesterday’s shot. A geeky little joke with myself. … Continue reading
I was struggling to find something to post for today so had to delve into the maybes folder. This was taken a few weeks back along the South Bank. This street performer, although standing motionless like most, was actually doing … Continue reading
The sun’s back out. So am I.
It’s still raining, so continuing on from yesterday’s post that was taken indoors, here’s another set indoor piece and Photoshop exercise. This is one of my work colleagues and I just loved the ring she was wearing and she’s also … Continue reading
I had just switched the camera on then glanced up, so quickly pointed it and took a shot. Whenever I see a traffic warden I just think of Eddie from “Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels”.
Sometimes when I go out with the camera in my lunch break, half an hour will pass and I think I’m never going to get a worthwhile shot. Then opportunities like this just present themselves. London amazes me every day. … Continue reading
I took these shots last week whilst walking around with my camera still set to ISO400 from the night before. Grrr. I noticed the chair first and took a shot, then as I walked away I saw this guy (probably … Continue reading
Another shot taken on the South Bank at the weekend. This girl was copying two paintings, by Sandro Botticelli, side by side on canvas taped to the ground. She had finished The Birth of Venus and was completing this piece … 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
Just something I saw last week whilst I was strolling. I can’t even remember what park this was in or who it was by. Poor show. I’ll try and find out.
I’m not sure if this guy was living on the street or not. He had a decent set of Nikes and two wheeled flight bags with him. Was he bedding in for the night or just knackered? Either way it’s … Continue reading
If you hadn’t already guessed I have a son, and I point the camera in his direction a lot, so you will see pictures of him from time to time. I had the pleasure of spending the whole day with … Continue reading
