London.

All shot on Victoria Embankment, London during a short walk along the Thames to clear my head. It’s amazing what you see when you look.

Turning Friends into Rock Stars

Here is an update on the request I had a while back to find a model for my latest photography assignment. A couple friends stepped up and offered to help and I managed to find an hour with Sarah last week to shoot some photographs. I chose to shoot in London as I am fortunate enough…

A brief love affair

You will recall I mentioned not so long ago about being excited to be the owner of a Leica camera.  Well I am about to sell it! Don’t get me wrong, I love it but the photography course I have started ensures that you take all of your photos in manual mode. The Leica can…

Artistic: Transportation. Our world is one defined about how we get around. Find inspiration in transportation. Well I honestly don’t think you can see more transport in the UK than at Bank junction! How many forms of transport can you see?

Landscape: Reflection. Find a way to show your landscape/natural beauty in reflection. The mirror world revealed. Sunday afternoon we decided to go for a walk around Flatford Mill which is where John Constable painted the Hay Wain. I love it here – such a lovely spot and you can see why Constable chose to paint such…

Running with Gale in The City

…gale force winds! I didn’t realise just how windy it was in London when I left the office.  The Thames was so choppy it resembled a rough sea.  I ran really well today. I thought I pushed myself too hard as I had very little time to run and simply wanted to get my miles…

That wasn’t so bad was it?

It was dark It was wet And it was windy But you know what? It wasn’t a bad run. It was actually quite mild considering it’s November and to be honest it was comfortable enough. Yes my shoes felt a bit different but I didn’t really ache and there was no soreness. In fact when…

Yay it’s working ;)

Thankfully when I returned home and dug out the official cable for my Polaroid Cube camera, it worked first time!  (Isn’t micro USB a pain in the ass!). Anyway that mean’s there are indeed some images from today (although I do think the battery was running low which is why it only recorded a handful of shots)….

#NoSelfie

I ran at lunchtime today as I had a full day and was determined to get a run in. It also ensured I took a breather from such a hectic schedule.  The weather was cooler than usual but it was nowhere near as crowded as it has been. That said I did get stuck behind…

BurnItUp UK style!   ( @TEllehammer )

Of all the choreography and films I have seen featuring BurnItUp I have to say this one from Tobias in the UK is my favourite. Not only does it show how talented we are here in the UK but it also features a lot of places on London that are in areas I know or…

Pride 10K Official Photos

I didn’t upload any race photos yesterday but the official photos came out today so I purchased two I like. Here are the shots I got and as you can see I was having fun on the run 🙂

Pride Run 2015: 1:02:35

I am really happy with this time.  It’s a little slower than my 59:58 time from last year but I wasn’t expecting to get under 60 minutes. It’s also a full 6 minutes quicker than the Tower of London run I did in May. The weather was really sunny and warm which meant it was…
