This may come as a surprise…

… I actually managed to get out and go for a run! I finally feel well enough to get my running shoes back on and get back out there. I am not sure my chest/nose would agree as I had to stop a couple times due to the cold air but I am happy I…

A bleak weekend

Not the brightest of weekends but the opportunity to try and capture the mood, the light and the snow with a time-lapse video. This is my largest volume of shots yet to create this time-lapse – nearly 2,000 photos!

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.

Morning has broken

I have been experimenting with timelapse photography and have managed to capture a sunrise from our bedroom window that I am very pleased with. My camera does not have a timelapse function, this is a combination of using the anti-shake option and an external shutter release.  It sounds complicated but once you get used to…

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…

Welcome to Colchester

A Relaxing Day

A relaxing (albeit autumnal) day at Woburn Abbey with friends. It gave me an excuse to test drive my Leica.  I am not sure what I am doing yet but these are my favourite photos from today.

Inner Sanctum

Pet Shop Boys play 4 nights of their new show Inner Sanctum at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, London and we managed to go to opening night. Not sure what to expect, not wanting a show full of boxes (Pandemonium) and not really liking the new album Super I was unsure about the evening. I had…

Life lessons…

Lesson 1 – Never tell your Physiotherapist everything is going well I went back to the physio this week expecting her to say I didn’t have to go back.  Things were feeling good and I was breaking the targets set by the physio. I soon learnt I should have kept quiet as she gave me…

The run with two times

It’s been a tough week this week and it’s been hot. My total commute yesterday was over 6 hours and needless to say I have been tired but I have also been determined to get at least one more cadence session in this week. I am not going to get the chance to run this…
