Northern Ireland, this time last year

Well I had a notification on FB that I had some memories to view and because I'm incredibly nosy had to look. It's started with a week off work and a motorbike trip around Ireland/Northern Ireland on my then Honda CBF 600 sa6 and 3 guys and a girl. Clockwise around Ireland from Dublin ending...

St Mary’s Church, Whitkirk

I take a lot of photos of graveyards and places of worship. Sometimes I may even seem a little irreverent to it, but it's really not so. I've seen many and read all the gravestone inscriptions and walk carefully with respect for the place I enter. Having said that, I have no time for doctrine... Continue Reading →

Taxidermy in Scarborough

Not sure how I feel about this. I suppose if it happens all post mortem and you had a cat you loved it would still be strange. But I'm not sure it's for me. The oddest shop in Scarborough, Yorkshire. ©Lucas Thompson-Murphy

Out and about in Leeds

I must have spent over 40 years walking around Temple Newsham in Leeds. One of my earliest memories is walking there in a summer when I was really young. It's a beautiful place and always busy with dog walkers, runners and families of all ages spending time out and enjoying the space. Hope you like... 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 →

Scarborough from the castle

Looking out from Scarborough castle down the South bay has the be the best view. I remember walking up to the walls nearly 30 years ago and taking a similar shot on a 35mm Nikon. The sea fret rolled in and set the scene perfectly. A few years later I revisited and took the same... 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 →

Park Güell, Barcelona

Barcelona and Gaudi is a perfect combination for a relaxed holiday. The photo was taken a few years back but I remember walking up the huge hill and then back to the sea from here. Our last trip was 56 miles around Krakow in a week and probably just as many beers. Definitely a place... Continue Reading →

Me and Gdansk

So tomorrow, Gdansk is getting booked and we're on our way back to Poland. It's a pretty easy decision really. Just loved being there. I'm on the count down and ten weeks to go. Since landing back in England and decorating, then painting a garden fence I have also bought a Clarinet. I just woke... Continue Reading →

Back to work

After a few days back at work I've lost a bit of momentum in editing and posting photos from my recent trip. I actually ended up with about a 1000 shots and the law of average is some are gonna be great. So I'm hoping that you like these. Perhaps my favourite shot of the... Continue Reading →
