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.

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 […]

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 […]

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.

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: […]
