Norfolk: Friday 28th – 30th June, 2019

This weekend I took a short break from the City and travelled to Norfolk. This was a welcome interruption to my schedule, as I move from June which has been fairly monotonous (not that that's necessarily a bad thing) to July which will be filled with marches, protests, and travel. On my way up to... Continue Reading →

Street & Events Photography: Tuesday, 25th June, 2019

Today was a pretty intensive day, starting with a good few hours of street photography, and ending with a five hour non-stop event I was photographing. The weather wasn't helping, and the air was oppressive both inside and out which really slowed me down.I started at Waterloo, and took a calm walk down to the... Continue Reading →

My Weird Past With the 35mm Focal Length

I didn't feel compelled to bring anything digital to Iceland, or Morocco, when I visited earlier this year;... Continue Reading →

Street Photography: Sunday, 16th June 2019

Today I photographed a procession and festival in celebration of Rathayatra (Chariot Festival) along with hundreds of other Londoners, and Hare Krishna's. I started near Green Park at the back of the procession and slowly made my way around the crowds until the walk finished at Trafalgar Square.The procession was really great; a street party...

Short Term vs Long Term Patience
