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.

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 …

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: …

Pit Crew

I started this blog by writing lots of posts about “stuff” happening in and around the City of London, where I work. Today offered the chance to write something similar. I had zero time for lunch today,but on the way back from a meeting in my old office on Appold St, I wandered through Finsbury …

Hatfield Sculpture Trail

It’s funny how weekends can occasionally take on a completely spontaneous character, with a crazy little thing you decide to do on the spur of the moment being great fun. Which brings me to Hatfield House, armed with my Nikon Df, 58mm F1.4G and 24mm F1.4G. Although it’s a location we visit often to take …
