My interest in photography came from playing with my dad’s old black and white kit.
I have been trying to write this post for a while and last year I made a great discovery which forced me to update my original version with this post which has a lot more authenticity, as you will see. In the previous version I used a stock image from the internet to illustrate the […]
Present, with one eye on the future.
Serendipity. That’s the word. And a happy accident is exactly what losing my spectacle lens was. You have probably suspected that I have had a screw loose for quite some time and, a couple of months ago, this turned out to be an accurate prophecy when the screw dropped out of the right hand side […]
A new year… a tidy desk and a new challenge Sometimes, I get all compulsive and feel the need to tidy. It happened one morning last week and consequently, the kitchen is cleaner than it has been for a long time, my laundry is folded and stowed, socks paired and my desk; well I will […]
Personal challenge day 4 – The return of the Rock
My personal photography challenge took a couple of unexpected turns today as Pip and I take a walk in the rain.

I am not a great photographer. Let’s get that out in the open right from the outset. I like to think that I am fairly good and can capture nice images of sailing boats doing what sailing boats do. As long as the sun is shinning, the wind is blowing and boats are sailing, then […]
It’s OK when a squall comes
Imagine the scene. There I am, in a RIB, taking photos of the OK national championships in Weymouth bay. It’s pretty standard stuff. A nice breeze blowing and I am getting some nice images of the competitors. Some group shots and some close ups. All good stuff but not terribly exciting. Then it starts to […]
