A weekend in York

Having never really spent time in York and wanting to see a statue of Constantine (a Yorkshire man) who became the leader of the world as we know it. We travelled to the northern city to walk the streets and I secretly had an idea of taking some candid photography. A great day out and... Continue Reading →

Saturday mornings & street photos

Every now and then, I venture into the city centre on a Saturday out of necessity. It gets a little mad in Leeds with the drug addicts walking around like zombies on spice and the homeless in the doorways trying to survive. You could get stopped by anyone touting some doctrine or other too. It... Continue Reading →

Not just a style, but a craft.

As you may know, I've been taking photos for 35 years. Yet when I look back over the shots I've taken over the  years they seem to jump in and out of styles and mediums constantly.  I normally use a Nikon 3500 now, but more often than not a mobile phone. I also work in... Continue Reading →

Street photography in Spain

Work commitments, travel and spending far too much time on Facebook and Twitter 🙄 It's easy to lose track and motivation for doing a blog and so I thought I'd post a few. Placing my...

Busking and street artist.

So in the middle of this year I travelled with my wife over to Halifax, to the see the Piece Hall after major renovation work had been completed. The highlight of the day was capturing this shot of a very talented busker. Today, I was doing the chores and sending stuff back to Amazon when... Continue Reading →

The Perfect Focus

Not too often, but sometimes you really get it right with a shot. Everything seems to click into place, the the universe aligns. I can no longer claim beginners luck or even high end equipment. Perhaps an accidental perfection. This shot was taken with an old Nikon D3100 with a kit lens. Hand held, well... Continue Reading →
