Smiley

Not posted anything for a while due to a number of factors (new baby being the main one!). But whilst at a children’s play area in Rye I spotted a couple of these funny looking things on springs. Not really sure what you are supposed to do on them, but they looked quite cool so […]

All the neon

  Over the week-end I stayed with a couple of friends who generously put me up for a couple of nights whilst in London (un)conferencing. The Sunday I was due to head back, we headed to Gods Own Junkyard which was a nothing less than a shrine to neon. It was amazing to look at. […]

Ceramic doorway in Seville

This kind of ceramic tiling is very common across Seville. Many a building is adorned with ceramic tiles of various styles. This one I spotted quite by accident on walkabout during the Easter processions (Semana Santa). I’ve not been here before and have no idea what the bar is like, but I may well have […]

Street camera

In Seville for the Semana Santa celebrations. The city is full of people coming to the centre to watch the famous religious processions. Dotted throughout the crowds are television crews capturing the processions for local and national television stations. On one street corner I spotted the above camera ready to record the passing processions. It […]

Mannequins

  This shot was taken in a large department store just outside central Seville. I quite liked the regimented way in which these mannequins were lined up…it’s almost a metaphor for capitalism in general. The image was taken using my iPhone and a black and white filter in Snapseed was applied.

Dover Castle

Half-term, and a trip to my hometown and its imposing castle. The complex itself is vast, from the Norman keep to the wartime tunnels. This shot was taken with my iPhone as I was leaving the site with my daughter. I would have preferred for there not to be cars (or people for that matter) […]

Chartham cycle path

I took this shot whilst walking along the Great Stour Way cycle route (or the Chartham to Canterbury cycle route) to see the impact of the recent storms. It was a beautiful sunny day which was a welcome change and somewhat of a rarity in 2014. This image was taken on the walk back to […]

Whitstable Library

Today was National Libraries Day in the UK, so it seemed fitting to post a photo taken outside Whitstable library in Kent. Every year on National Libraries Day, local library supporters come together and chalk messages of support on the stone slabs outside the library. When the weather is good, it’s quite an effective sight: […]

Crucifixion silhouette

This photo was taken at Glorieta Cruceiro after watching the cabalgata in Seville. Due to the crowds, it was easier to pull my smartphone out of my pocket than to mess about with the DSLR. I liked the silhouette of the cross with the backdrop of some interesting cloud formations and edited it using a […]
