Under The Christmas Tree
52 Week

52/52 Christmas Cat!

Nearly forgot to publish the last in the 52 week series? It’s been an odd week photographically as I really haven’t wanted to photograph anything in case it removes subjects from the forthcoming 365 project I’m starting on New Years Day so I haven’t taken the volume of photographs I

51/52 After the shoot

I was considering holding onto these as “emergency” subjects for my forthcoming second 365 project. If I’m honest I knew pretty early on this year that I had made a mistake stopping my daily photography once I had completed my 366 project at the end of last year. To be

Construction of the Leadenhall Building, London
black and white

50/52 This Way Up

Continuing the black and white theme, but due to equipment issues, not the long exposure work…which was irritating! This is a photograph of a new office building called the Leadenhall Building being built next to St Helen’s…somewhere I used to work in a past life!

49/52 Dovercourt Lighthouse

I’m really enjoying black and white and long exposure photography at the moment. This shot combines the two and is of one of the old lighthouses at Dovercourt on the Essex coast.

Autumn Takeover

48/52 Autumn Takeover

A visit to Rowney Woods for a quick march round between heavy rain showers delivered the following shot. Ordinarily you look to have pretty much everything in focus in a landscape shot, but today I wanted all the attention to be on the gate and all the brambles surrounding it

47/52 Normans Mill

Normans Mill is the oldest operational wind powered waterpump in the UK and is loacated on Wicken Fen in Cambridgeshire, about an hours drive from where we live in Essex. It’s a National Trust property and it always rather takes my breath away how expensive it is to visit these

46/52 An Early Morning Paddle

This Saturday I spent taking a lot of portraits of families with friends from the Bishops Stortford Camera Club. On arrival at the studio in Sawbridgeworth we were running the event from I noticed the River Stort running past, and these two canoeists heading my way. I grabbed my camera

Cat Burglar

45/52 Cat Burglar

I don’t do much compositing – taking more than 1 picture and merging them together to create a new shot – but this is one that came out really well. This was an original shot of Badger, one of our cats taken a couple of years ago merged with a

End of the line - Peasant Shoot in Rowney Woods
Debden

43/52 End of the Line

Back to Rowney Woods where we were greeted with warning signs that a shoot was taking place. We saw nor heard anything until we were heading back to the car when we were surrounded by beaters flushing out the pheasants. As we walked down the ride we were surrounded by

Castle

42/52 Orford Castle

We caught a really nice day to go to the Suffolk coast this autumn – we were planning on visiting just Framlingham Castle and Aldburgh, but managed to squeeze in Southwold (the best pier I’ve ever visited) and a place we had never heard of until we had been to Framlingham
