It's been a while since my last post. During that time I made the decision to up my photography game. In doing so I made the switch from LUMIX G cameras to Fujifilm.Read More
It all came from one photo.

Commuting seems to be my life at the moment. In fact, 4 hours of my day is spent commuting. Thanks to today's technology and yesterday's media (The Newspapers) makes the commute almost bearable. However, I believe we do miss out on life because we don't stop and look.Read More
This has got to be one ofy favourite black and white photos I've taken to date. In fact it was probably THE photo that spurred my further interest into street photography and perhaps exploring more into black and white photography.
One of my favourite photographers is world renowned Garry Winogrand. Every time I look at the photo I took it kind of reminds me of the sort of work he did. That is of course my personal opinion but would love to know what you think.
Shot on iPad Mini 2.
Comparing the two you'd think the top picture was perhaps taken around the late 60s early 70s. When in fact it was taken in November 2014.

You've got to take it, and tonight I did just that. Below are two main subjects I took whilst on my way home.
The Dark Stare
I follow a lot of creative photographers who always seem to be at the right place, the right time getting shots like a dogs head on top of a human. Alas that day finally came to me and I took it.
As I looked to my left I saw opportunity once again knocking.
After some more tweaking and experimenting...
It's all about the light...
As a keen photographer, relatively late on to the scene. I keep hearing/seeing the word golden hour. For those who don't know, golden hour is a period shortly after sunrise or before sunset during which daylight is redder and softer.
The photo below was taken a few hours just before golden hour. I did have to manipulate the image slightly, drop the exposure, play around with hue, in order to get this image I Just wish it wasn't so cold today otherwise I'd have stayed to get a better shot.
Taken on iPhone 7 plus, ISO 20, Focal length 3.99mm, Exposure 1/640 sec f/1.8
I pass this great building everyday on my way to and from work.
Last night on my way home the Four Seasons was looking very different. Very Red. perhaps they were getting in the mood for Valentine's Day on Wednesday. In fact I'll ask and later confirm it on this post.
I was in two minds whether to show you the building in red. So I thought no, I'll wait till it's Valentine's day, however you can check out my Instagram Story (before it runs our) for the original shot. For now here it is below in glorious black and white.
if you're a fan of my images and think they would look great on yours, your friend or families wall, iPhone case, notebook or coffee mug, then take a look at the store.
Some of you may know I tend to spend most of my non planned weekends wondering around Canary Wharf and the Docklands. It's one of my favourite places to go in London.
Despite what people think, Canary Wharf is surprisingly lively over the weekend. Nothing like West End, Shoreditch, Camden and the likes but there are lots of bars and restaurants, squares and outdoor events.
Apart from all that Canary Wharf (and most places in London) is a great spot for street photography and architectural photography.
One Canada Square below is one impressive and tall building. All metal and glass that displays some impressive reflections.
On one of my usual Saturday afternoon walks around Canary Wharf, London. I took the chance to have a go at low light Photography. Thankfully with today's weather the conditions were perfect.
Here is another below which caught my eye.
