Taken at a café in Cucuron, south eastern France.
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
So this is the first post of Year Two. Thanks for all the kind londonrubbish.com birthday messages yesterday, they’re all very much appreciated. This shot was taken in Dulwich Park at the weekend when the weather was glorious. Just to … Continue reading
I fell into that trap again, I went around on a very sunny day firing off shots on ISO 400. However, I was quite pleased with the results, although they were noticeably grainier than I’m used to. I toned this … Continue reading
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
Another from the Alternative Fashion Show, but this has been heavily cropped from the original. As I was trimming the ninety odd shots I did take, I nearly deleted this one as it was out of focus and the background … Continue reading
Now, I would really like to tell you that this is someone I stopped in the street, but alas I’ve still not quite plucked up the courage to do that. Other than for a shadow of course. After seeing these … Continue reading
These portraits were taken in Camden and all of the people kindly let me take their photograph. I just wish I had the courage.
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.
I visited Colchester Zoo with some friends at the weekend and I must say I was pleasantly surprised. I’m a little unsure of my feelings about zoos, but it was clean, well kept and all the animals looked very healthy … 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.
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
We walked around Lucca yesterday morning and it really is a beautiful city. Although after getting back and looking through my umpteen pictures of little streets and churches I was very underwhelmed. So this shot kind of summed up my … 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
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
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
It’s my son’s first birthday so I wanted to post a picture of him. Although I do feel a little odd about it as I can’t really ask for his permission. Well I can, but I doubt he’ll understand. I … Continue reading
I wanted to go out this evening and get some shots as the light faded, but alas it was raining and I didn’t fancy getting the camera wet. So I stayed indoors and took this. I’ve been wanting to attempt … Continue reading
Today I finally plucked up the courage to ask someone if I could take their picture and here’s the result. I saw this very proud looking chap strolling along Old Bond Street and asked “May I take your picture?” and … Continue reading
The two sides of London. The girl looked ready to do some serious damage. The guy looked too tired to start it all again tomorrow. I think the whole world can hear the shutter when I take pictures like this. … Continue reading
