I Should Have Got There Early

Spur of the moment decision but I decided to head to Bodnant Gardens this morning before the flowers in the Laburnum Arch decay. By the time I walked the dogs it was 10am before I set off. Bodnant opens at 9am. It's only a short drive away but by the time I got there I... Continue Reading →

Miyajima Island

This is going to be a long one, so get a drink, sit down and have a look at the photographs from Miyajima Island. This is only a selection, I spent all day on the island and although I visited the most important temples and shrines, I know I missed some. There was so much... Continue Reading →

Gingaku-ji

It’s three weeks since I got back from Japan and only now am I getting around to really look at the photographs I have taken there. Since I got back we’ve been working on completely renovating and landscaping the back garden to make it more maintenance friendly. This has meant, clearing borders, laying weed matting...

Last week I was lucky to be in Budapest for a short break. Although photography would be a part of the trip the idea was to enjoy some downtime with my wife. See the sights, taste the food, you get the idea. Unfortunately we were not always blessed with good weather and during the photography... Continue Reading →

Hôtel-Dieu, Beaune

Once an alms-house for the poor, the Hotel Dieu is now a museum and at last I have found an ancient building in France that is not bare of furniture and fittings. Right from the start I knew there would be some good photo opportunities and it really was a shame that the sun wasn’t... Continue Reading →

Château de Tournon

Once again I am disappointed by a French historical building that promised much and delivered so little. Perched above the town of Tournon, the castle has views over the town and river. Inside though another historical building has been stripped of much of it’s original fixtures and fittings, only to be replaced by modern works... Continue Reading →
