A Balmy May

A Balmy May

It’s been one of the driest springs on record, and exceptionally warm. I don’t mind photography in any weather – rain lends a certain ambience to photographs that I love. However sunny days are easier and often more awe-inspiring.

Wakehurst Place

Wakehurst Place

I imagine it’s not possible to have an interest in Photography, Architecture; or architectural photography without being a member of the National Trust. Of course I am, and Wakehurst Place is both (in my opinion) one of the most beautiful buildings in the National Trust portfolio (though there are many) and nearest my mother. This photograph of Wakehurst Place was captured …

Awww, look… A cute little lamb…

Just to prove I’m not a one trick pony, and I can do different styles of photography I like to post something everything now and again that’s not my usual style. Here is a saccharine-sweet photo of a lamb! Hope you enjoy it…

An exercise in grime…

As regular viewers of my blog will attest, I’m a big lover of grime, grunge, dystopia and anything with a hint of malaise. I’ve also believe I’ve got an eye for beauty, and for fun I often like to take a scenic image and make it grimey. This is an exercise in grime…

Early morning on the canal

0630 in the morning, a bowl of muesli, my tripod and camera. It’s the start of a warm April day but the nights are cold. The shallow waters of the canal obviously catch the heat in the day, forming plenty of mist in the early morning.

Crocuses (Crocii) in St James’ Park

A trip to London to celebrate half term, and spring has finally sprung! Took the opportunity to get down low, and highlights how badly I need a new tripod! This was as low as I could get, and feel the image would be enhanced with a better ‘pod!
