What No Equipment? Are You Serious?

A little known fact about me is that occasionally I have been known to give talks about my photography in the National park and surrounding areas. Of course my photographs are featured and usually the institution/club provides the projector and screen. That’s pretty normal and accepted by most speakers. So all we have to do...

52 in 2015 Week 29 Architecture

Liverpool is an exciting city with all different types of architecture, which makes it my choice photography venue for this weeks challenge. Black and White, is for me, an obvious choice for showing this weeks photographs. I wonder how many times this window has been photographed. It’s situated in the Museum of Liverpool and there...

Weekly Photo Challenge: Inside

Spring is in the air and “She who must be obeyed” has decided that I need to be in the garden clearing a patch of scrub and bushes where she (?) is going to put the summerhouse. Now the fact that some of that scrub has two small tree-like bushes seems to have escaped her... Continue Reading →

Over the past few weeks I have been visiting some of the small churches and chapels in the Conwy Valley, North Wales to photograph them. Some of the churches are easy to find, others not so, being located down remote country lanes or on the top of mountains. Claimed to be the oldest church in... Continue Reading →

52/2013 Week 25

Unlike many people when I go on holiday I don't take too many photographs. Holiday for me is to spend time with my wife and just relax. However, I do take my camera gear with me and sometimes I’ll take the odd photograph but it’s not the top priority. One of the reason we were... Continue Reading →

Weekly Photo Challenge: Curves

Many of my photographs are taken using the Sigma 10-20mm wide-angle lens fitted to my camera. With a wide-angle lens I can fit more into the frame, especially usefully if I am working with wide open landscapes or the cramped interior of a church as I often do. The downside of a wide-angle lens though is...
