Public Transport in London

A Photographic Subject to Explore Using public transport in London is a matter of course for me. If I won the lottery tomorrow (I haven’t got a ticket so I won’t hold my breath) I would still much rather travel by train than by cab both for the opportunity to people-watch, and to visit some of the stations which are a work of art in … Continue reading Public Transport in London

A Lonely Poppy on the North Dorset Trailway

A Photographic Diary, July 2019 In case you were hoping for images of fields full of poppies, this post isn’t it. The majority of the field looked like this… But what made me pause mid-cycle, get off my bike and get my iPhone out was this single plant, its petals saturated a deep red because of the slightly overcast weather. I’ve not altered the blown-out … Continue reading A Lonely Poppy on the North Dorset Trailway

A Photographic Diary: March 2020

iPhone 8+: Kingston Lacy, Dorset March 2020 March 2021 Update: This set of images represent a last trip out before lockdown was introduced in the UK in March 2020. I was looking for signs of spring as a way to feel some hope in the face of pandemic, in the knowledge that there would be a lockdown, but not really understanding what that meant. There … Continue reading A Photographic Diary: March 2020

Highgate Cemetery, London

Highgate Cemetery website If you’re visiting London and you want to escape into a cool, green space while learning something interesting and being somewhere a bit different, Highgate Cemetery is the place to go. I’ve been twice so far. The first time it was a beautiful sunny day; in photography terms this meant a lot of contrast to deal with. The second time it was … Continue reading Highgate Cemetery, London

Flowers on Fuji Colour Film

A Photographic Subject to Explore These images were taken with a Canon EOS 300 using Fuji colour film at Kingston Lacy NT in Wimborne, late summer 2018. This gallery contains a mix of film scans and photo scans and so the quality is variable and you can see there are some white lines and haze in some of the images which I think are the … Continue reading Flowers on Fuji Colour Film

Slide Film from London, 2001

These were taken on a Canon EOS 300 in about 2001, on cheap Boots Colour Slide film. They were scanned quite a long time ago on an Epson flatbed scanner. They scanned quite dark, but I’m guessing slide film would do that because they were meant to be backlit. These images represent some of my very early work, when I was just starting to get … Continue reading Slide Film from London, 2001

Film Photography: My Story So Far

When I started photography digital photography was not wide-spread. My first proper camera was a Canon EOS 300. (No, not a 300D, just a 300). Apart from my house, my car and my wedding dress, it was the most expensive thing I’d ever bought. It wasn’t really very good; I think you can pick them up on eBay now for less than £10. As well … Continue reading Film Photography: My Story So Far

A Roll of Fuji Colour Film, November 2018

Most of these images were taken in November 2018. They were shot on an old Canon AE-1 that I picked up on eBay. I think they were all shot using the 50mm prime lens that came with the camera. The film is Fujicolor C200 and I sent the film away for processing and printing as in my opinion, life is too short to process colour … Continue reading A Roll of Fuji Colour Film, November 2018
