Wireless

What’s all this about? Ridiculously, a terse exchange on a well known internet forum (comically I was accused of being a Nikon fanboy) led me to pick up my Fujifilm X-T1 again and play about with it. Following that, it so happened that meant the X-T1 ended up in my bag on a couple of …

Enfield

I’ve been meaning to write this since early September and I have a bunch of other stuff to get through that’s queued behind it. The trouble is, this is a piece about the area I just moved from and there’s just so much to cram in. I can remember now how we discovered Enfield. Some …

Moving Home

First of all, if it seems like I haven’t been posting much here at the minute, I apologise. I’ve been moving house with all of the hard work, frustration and stress that brings with it. I also apologise for a lot of “dull” pictures of an empty house. But if you are here, you probably …

Liverpool

Sometimes you have days that start not so well, get worse and end badly. They are at least consistent… We had a day like this recently when a combination of the need to exchange contracts on our purchase and sale of property, put the cat into a cattery for the weekend and get ourselves to …

Don’t look down…

A walk by Westminster Bridge to test my new 80-400mm lens with my D810 offered the usual fair of views of the London Eye, seagulls and boats on the river, until I looked at Parliament. I took some pictures of “big ben” (actually the Queen Elizabeth Tower, the bell is known as “Big Ben”) and …

Read all about it: Nikon D810 User Impressions

I’ve been wanting to write about the D810 pretty much since I got it. It the most exciting camera upgrade in a long time where almost nothing has changed, but the few changes that have resulted are so significant that it actually surpasses other cameras which are a radical reworking of the original concept. As …

Big busk!

I have found myself in limbo these last few weeks. I’ve been packing up to move house, but sadly, as is the way in the UK property market, problems elsewhere in the property “chain” mean I’ve been chasing and waiting on solicitors and estate agents. At some point no doubt we’ll move but it feels …

Blow the trumpet

Sadly, you find me in a situation this morning where my mood is such that I would rather blow a trumpet in someone’s face. I don’t think I’ll ever understand why in the process of trying to achieve something some people choose to behave in a way that amounts to pouring fuel over the fires …

Rain, Sweat and Enthusiasm: Le Tour in London

I had absolutely no idea I would have any time free today at all. My diary was packed with meetings which I was cursing because today was the day the world’s biggest cycling race rolled into town. One technical failure of a 3 hour video conference later and I set off with a couple of …

Year of the Bus

I was mystified to discover 2014 is the year of the (London) bus. I wasn’t actually sure why this was the “Year of the Bus”, but a host of TFL and bus company websites informed me that 2014 has been chosen as “Year of the Bus” because there are several important bus anniversaries this year: …
