Some of my favourite shots

I've spent the night posting landscape photography and scrolling through all my street photography. Most of these I will have posted somewhere before but lost count of where and when. Love them or hate them, to me these are brilliant. It a great genre of photography, taking a chance and deleting many to get that... Continue Reading →

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

So this week we're tramping the streets of Benidorm, Spain. The sun is out and it feels great to feel the warmth of the Sun on my face. Naturally, I'm taking photos and people watching. Here are a few from yesterday. © Lucas Thompson-Murphy

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 →

Street Art in Barcelona

Street art and Europe go hand in hand. Whether it's a tagging or full pieces, I have a habit of seeing something most would walk past without further thought. Last night I was looking through the archives for inspiration and ended up finding some shots from Barcelona. A beautiful place we visited years back and... Continue Reading →

We all have a favourite.

Sometimes, when you have thousands of shots and look back at them, one always stands out. I suppose being emotionally attached to the situation and scene has something to do with it. Last year I spent time in Tolworth, London for a project and took a few shots of the embankment and Battersea with all... Continue Reading →

Street Photography in Krakow

So I've decided, I don't do holiday photography very well. It's not something I'm tuned in to. I've been driving my wife mad with shooting, editing and posting the street photography on Facebook. The Jewish quarter was incredible to see and the Oskar Schindler factory was a 40 minute hike from town. Amazing experience, one... Continue Reading →

Shopping for holiday clothes

Being a typical bloke and also because I was hungry. Sunday shopping in and out of pound shop, Primark, wilkos and endless others. I get to stand outside while wifey goes and does the apparent essentials. I make it fun by taking a few photos, thats what I do. Here are the shots, hope you... Continue Reading →
