I've been a long term user of Flickr and a Pro user pretty much since Flickr started. I've stuck with it between all the take overs and changes but this latest request from the head of Flickr for more money is a step too far. It's been a great service and I enjoyed the options … Continue reading End of an Era
People watching at Photo London this weekend. People really do come in all shapes and sizes! Processed direct in my Pen f with a crop and straighten in post.
Somerset House May 2019 Taken at #photolondon this weekend. Of all the shots I took this candid shot of the curator on his phone is my favourite.
Our nephew celebrated his passing out today. He is now an MOD Police Officer. I was taken by this view of the Chief Constable watching the new recruits as they embark on their new life in the force.

I really like this photograph but to obtain the … Continue reading Clematis
I found out recently that Pro Flickr users can print a free Chatbook – all you need to pay is the postage. Even though Chatbooks is based in the USA, it was only £4 postage to the UK and took about two weeks for delivery. Anyway, I thought would give it a try and used … Continue reading Chatbooks
Although this looks like a single image it's actually a composite. I put this through Lightroom to merge the images and ended up with this sweeping wave along the beach. I like the added drama and the emphasis on the water breaking on the shore. It's not what I expected to develop from the process … Continue reading Wave to the fisherman…
