Well it appears it has been a couple of months since my last post promising not to be away for so long!
Well it’s been a busy couple of months with one thing and another so I’ve decided I can be forgiven :-).
So where have I been and what have I been up to?
Well I’m ashamed to say not much photography – I can almost here the boos and jeers of derision.
However I did have a lovely day out in London last week, the sun was blazing and I did have my camera – aren’t you pleased! I had another day there recently but that mainly consisted of eating and drinking so no pictures from that 🙂
So here we go, my shot of London taken from Westminster Bridge.
I promise to be better and take more shots soon.

I thought I’d have a break from the exhibition pics and go for a nice summery scene. OK so it’s not all scenery and flowers but I do think it’s quite a cheery scene!
This is a picture of a crowd watching a street entertainer in Covent Garden that I took the other week.
As you’ve come to expect from me, I thought I would give it a HDR makeover and I really like the outcome. It just seems to give it a feel of summer and enhances the colours as well as giving it an unusual effect.

Today’s post is the ninth picture from our range that is currently on display in Peterborough Museum.
The post today is called A Splash of Oxford Circus – a picture from our splash of colour range.
Although I’ve said it before about some of my pictures I do have to say that this one is again one of my favourite pictures.
However it’s not to everyone’s taste as we found out yesterday at a craft fair we were at! We had a visitor to our stall who was very vocal about how pictures like this ‘made her blood boil’ as it ‘isn’t what you see down the lens.’ She then announced that she was a photographer from National Geographic but personally I think she was just someone who needed to get out more 🙂
Oh well, you can’t please everyone – onwards and upwards!
If you’d like to see more of our work that drives ‘proper photographers’ mad just click on the picture and you’ll be taken to the page on our website where our exhibition pictures are. Grab a drink, take a look and have a seethe – just try to enjoy!
We’re onto picture number 6 of our exhibition prints and today is ‘The Underground’.
This is one of my favourite pictures and also one of my first attempts at a HDR picture.
This is a cropped picture of the underground sign above Leicester Square Station in London that was then given a HDR makeover and even if I do say so myself, I think the results are wow!
Although you can’t see it here, this print looks amazing in a black frame so why don’t you pop onto my website (by clicking on the picture) and treat yourself to one!
All the profits from the sale of this print are being donated to Macmillan Cancer Support so please, please consider buying one 🙂
A little while ago I did a post called London Calling. It was basically this picture but in full colour.
Since then, I received a request to do this picture as one of my Splash of Colour Range. I don’t know why I hadn’t thought if this before – all I can say in my defence is, I can’t think of everything!
Even if I do say so myself, I think the result is rather striking and it is now safely on sale sale on our website.
If you’d like to take a look at the rest of the Splash of Colour Range then simply click on the picture and you’ll be taken to the relevant page on our website.
Today’s post is an HDR pic of a scene in Covent Garden that I took last year.
I toyed with the HDR process with it before and wasn’t sure whether it worked. However, I gave it the same treatment again yesterday and I think it does now.
Maybe this will be another of those pictures that you either love or hate or maybe are just not sure about!
If you love it, hate it or are not sure about it please feel free to comment and let me know as I really can’t make my own mind up!

Today’s post is another one from the archives and is called London Calling. I took this about a year ago on one of my visits to London and as it was a pretty standard image I gave it a HDR makeover.
I know that to some it may just be a picture of a telephone box but it has became such an iconic image that I couldn’t resist sharing it.
