This Remembrance weekend marks the Centenary of Armistice. The day when the guns finally fell silent in what became known as The Great War. In this modern age, with all the tools we have for communicating directly with one another, you would like to think that the possibility of such a conflict ever recurring is […]
Daily Photo - What I See Each Day
I have a huge back catalog. Revisiting the images I've shot over the years, then adding more examples of how the modern images are different in style, is an idea that interests me.
Daily Photo is an attempt to get into the habit of sharing images more. Will I actually manage a fresh photo every day, together with a suitable short blog captions?
Let's find out shall we? It starts November 2018
Saltburn beach, North Yorkshire, UK. Taking my big hairy Golden Retriever for a walk along the beach late on a summers evening. That’s when it came to me that the iPhone would change my world and that I needed to plan. I’d left the mighty Canon 1DS behind, as it was just a nice evening […]

This is Sweden in the summertime. Most of the times I’ve been to Scandinavia it’s been in winter time, almost always because I’ve been working with my friends at Ice Driver. This was shot from the back of the car looking rearwards, simply because the roads in this part of Sweden are stunning all year […]
This faded lemon, once yellow, Mercedes saloon was sitting in the shade of the trees at the small restaurant we were tipped off about in the Charente in France. One of those places that only ever does Pat du Jour, ten Euros got us a full three course meal, complete with house red wine. The […]
