Whitstable

The above photo was taken on a trip to Whitstable today. I’m never really too sure about photos where one colour is picked out, but it was such a dull day I felt like the red would really benefit from being brought out a bit more. There’s also a black and white version here and […]

London

Over the weekend we took full advantage of having the in-laws stay with us and decided to have a day out in London. This was also a good opportunity to have a proper play with the new prime lens I received for Christmas. Below are some of my favourite shots from yesterday (all available as […]

Semana Santa, Seville

  We recently visited Seville during Semana Santa (the Holy Week), a week long series of processions held throughout the city (and throughout Spain). I had never visited the city in the run up to Easter before (we normally go for the Feria de Abril two weeks later) and, whilst I am not religious in […]

Greyfriars Chapel and Franciscan Gardens

  The above shot was taken in the Franciscan gardens in Canterbury during the recent “A Few Wise Words” festival. I’m not sure if some of the installations were part of the festival or whether it is normal for these kinds of things to be placed around the garden. To my shame, I’d not visited […]

Westgate Gardens

This is a similar shot to a photo I took last year in May with my iPhone. This shot isn’t much different, except it’s a better quality image given it was taken with my Nikon. I took a couple of shots of this, one in landscape and another in portrait. Out of the two portrait […]

Reculver Towers

This image was also taken on our trip to Reculver. Reculver Towers are the ruins of a 12th century church built on the north Kent coast, part of a complex which also includes a Roman fort. The site is free to wander around (although the nearby car park is tiny) and beyond the towers is […]

Timber, Reculver

Yesterday we took a trip to Reculver and had a picnic next to the towers followed by a stroll along the path by the sea. I saw these pieces of timber poking up from the shingle and thought they were quite interesting looking. Alongside the above, I also took a few shots of the three […]

St.Michael's Chapel, Canterbury Cathedral

  As it was half-term, and due to the fact I get free admission courtesy of my employer, we took a visit to Canterbury Cathedral as a cheap trip out. Sadly it wasn’t the best of days outside so I was unable to get any half-decent external shots of the cathedral. I did, however, manage […]

Seaweed

This image was taken on the shingle beach in Whitstable. I love the vivid green you get from seaweed like this, so I took a couple of shots to try and capture it. It’s not the most interesting of photos, but I like the colour. And it makes a change from black and white.
