Water, walking, walking on

J and I celebrated our fifth wedding anniversary recently. We dropped D at his Nanna and Grandpa’s and we escaped to Guildford for a day and evening. Jo was gracious enough to allow me 30 mins of playing with tripods and ND filters at the weir. BW conversion courtesy of Topaz BW tools. This was […]

July Portrait: Grace was in all her steps, heaven in her eye

July’s portrait was a tough one. Work has been hard and the thought of rigging up for a portrait shoot has been daunting. However while out and about I have been playing with longer focal lengths on my cheap telephoto. 135mm on the d7000, 55-200mm nikkor, iso 100, 1/125. I should have the Wales trip […]

Sheerness Steps

Summer seems to be starting here in London, my wife and I decided to take our son to the seaside . The trip gave me an opportunity to take the Ensign Ranger out with a slower film. Last time out I had an ISO 400 film loaded and I was hampered by a lack of […]

Bleak Weather

The weather is hellish here in London. Living on a hill besides on the south bank of the Thames it is almost even worse. It seems we have had drizzle and mist everyday for the last three months. We even had snow today, snow on the 4th of April. I loaded the Ranger Special up […]

Snow stopper

I promise that this will be the last of the fed2 snow photographs. There is a new camera on it’s way to the lodge, it’s medium format and older than anything I have tried before. Fed2b with Industar26m, Kodak BWcn400 -> Lightroom4 -> Topaz B&W Effects (for a bit of a contrast hike and a […]

Waiting for the Summer

The lake in Danson Park is a favourite spot for local walkers and we often take Dylan up there for a stroll in the fresh air. The grounds are quite pleasant, laid out by Nathaniel Richmond, assistant to Capability Brown. The tea rooms are fantastic and offer the best Darjeeling i have tasted in a long time. […]

A Cold and Snowy Night in Woolwich

More snow photo’s from General Gordon Square. Woolwich is trying to improve. It almost seems like an organic attempt to step out of Greenwich’s shadow and prove that it could be nice if people would just give it a chance. Maybe that is it; Woolwich isn’t that ugly now, it just looks ugly when compared […]

Bench

Woolwich is a funny place. For such a multicultural part of London to have it’s central  main square named after General Gordon of Khartoum is just weird. It’s even odder that LBG decided that the best way to refurbish the square was to put a BBC sponsored TV screen in the middle and sculpt the rest […]

Snowblind

Earlier in the year we had snow. I grabbed my fed and dashed out of the office to a copse nearby for some xp2 fun.  

Feb Portrait: Dylan again

It’s only month two of my 12 portraits in 12 months project  and I have already come close to failure. People seem happy enough to let me snap away at social gatherings but finding a victim to sit in front of me for an hour is a touch more troublesome. This months model is a […]

The childhood shows the man, as morning shows the day
