The travels, musings and thoughts of a man and his camera.

UK resident, in north west Lancashire. It was time for a career change and a lifelong interest in photography has opened up a new path with new challenges. As well as submissions to photo libraries and magazines I'm also putting together a selection of e-book titles through Amazon Kindle.

A Rainy Morning With Coffee

Rain is falling so no excuse not to make some more progress with the projects I have in hand. The image above was taken on a trip out to nearby Southport, a resort on the Lancashire coast  not too far outside of Liverpool. It has a slightly faded gentility these days but that’s not to say it’s shabby. The shot is of the interior of what had been a great […]

Monday Monday

Sat at my desk on a cold, brisk day. Luckily the area where I live has missed the worst of the storms that have been battering the north of the UK. It was heartbreaking to see the flooding in Carlisle and Appleby, two places I know quite well.  Carlisle figures as my starting point for the fantastic rail journey around the Cumbrian coast.

The ebooks I started to putting together this year have been progressing well, plus I’ve started on producing a print-on-demand stream of books, trickier to get […]

Thoughts On A Rainy November Night

A few line to celebrate the launch my latest ebook on Kindle. (link above!) It’s a collection of the slightly odd images that have caught my eye. Street names, unusual bits of architecture or buildings. The personal sort of image that normally doesn’t find a home in my usual freelance work. The shot that catches the corner of my eye when I’m exploring a location looking for the ‘proper’ image. […]

A bit of a gap since the last posting but it has been time well spent, I’ve been on a drive to get all my unedited images sorted out and into order. That’s been helped quite a bit by the appalling weather which has reduced the temptation to go out and about. I can see that it’s raining, I don’t need to go out and get wet to prove it. I’ve also […]
