CHESTER. And the Dance Goes On.

Thanks to ‘that’ virus I’m still time travelling ( wibbley wobbley timey wimey etc ) through my back catalogue until normality returns. So by the magic of the internet let me whisk you back top 2013 and the city of Chester.

It has a changing sequence of events taking place through the year which always add to the pleasure of any visit. A more recent attraction is Astley Hall Illuminated, a light […]

Edinburgh, The Quickness Of The Hand.

    Watch carefully, is it here, or is it there? The quickness of the hand deceives the eye. This is Edinburgh, on the Royal Mile by St. Giles Cathedral and the Festival is at it’s height. This event is in my top five of locations for candid street photography. You just have to pick a spot and it all unfurls before you like a tapestry of a carnival. Here […]
