Doing a MOOC thing...on photography

I’m generally not one for signing up for online courses. I did one a little while back and although it was interesting, I don’t think I really gained a lot from it and I certainly wasn’t able to engage with it as much as I would like. Although nominally you can do these courses at […]

Stegosaurus at the Natural History Museum

Yesterday we took the kids to the Natural History Museum in London. It’s been a long time since I last visited the museum and, of course, the dinosaur exhibit was high on the agenda. The above photo is of a Stegosaurus, situated near the step-free entrance to the museum (you can view the original by […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
