It’s so important for me to every now and again get outside with my camera and spend time in nature, it’s my happy place, it’s where I find peace and where I can lose myself for hours. So lucky to have a rainbow appear as I was taking shots at Marks Hall (Coggleshall near Colchester).
I was really chuffed to be asked by the Diagnostic Centre in Colchester to provide some images for their walls in the new centre. This evening was the official opening so I took along my dad as my wing man. He looked so smart in his suit, thanks for coming with me dad. Another moment and memory to treasure.
One of my favourite things to do is to go out walking with our cameras using just one lens. A Photographer friend of mine told me years ago that it was a good thing to do, it encourages me to be creative, to get back in touch with a lens I haven’t used for a while and to focus on the subject rather than get hung up on equipment that I have or don’t have on me. Here are a few pics from a walk at Alton Water using my 100mm…
The changes that have been made to the London Docklands in the past 25 years have been among the most striking and most dynamic developments in the world. We decided to take a trip to Canary Wharf with our cameras at night. It was a bit of a challenge for me as I didn’t have a tripod to use so all of these pics are taken using a long exposure and balancing my camera on something I found in the area like steps, tops of bollards etc
Sometimes as a self employed Photographer I get so caught up with taking pictures for other people I forget to take my own pictures for pleasure. On Sunday we went out for a drive to Burnham-on-Crouch and went for a stroll along the prom with our cameras. It was so mild that we stayed out longer than expected and were there as the sun started to set .
