Pigeon Pete in Bridlington

Every now and then I capture a special moment in time that I believe 'they' say is a keeper.  I took this shot a while back. Some time in 2019, but I can't remember when or what date. I suppose I could look up the file and tell you what iso and all that, but it's... Continue Reading →

Star gazing in North Yorkshire.

I've always had a fascination for stars and love the thought of life out there in some form.  This show was taken on the Nikon with an affordable Yongnuo 50mm lens.  To be honest I did try with the stock lens and failed miserably. It pants at night photography.I keep on going back and looking... Continue Reading →

Bempton Cliffs and Yorkshire

I have travelled to a lot of places and seen many a sunset or dramatic landscape but always return to my homeland. The following shots are from where I live and will always have a sense of complete awe, for the beautiful county of Yorkshire.©Lucas Thompson-Murphy

The cat of the house

We've had our at about 15 years and she has been a pleasure and a pain. Just like any child would be. I remember picking her up from a rescue centre all those years ago. Love her to bits though. ©Lucas Thompson-Murphy

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 →

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 →

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 →
