Daily Picket Chase Farm

I’ve been meaning to post something for a while about the small protest at the end of my road about the potential closure of (parts of) our local hospital in Enfield. A few years ago I might have even supported this protest (as I believe David Cameron did before he became prime minister), but that …

Leadenhall Market

I really like Leadenhall Market. It’s a wonderful place to go and pretend you aren’t really in the City at lunchtime. The market itself dates back to the 14th century. It primarily sells fresh food; among the vendors there are cheesemongers, butchers and florists. Originally it was a meat, game and poultry market. The ornate …

Southbank Centre World Map in Lego

Finally, these are rubbish photos (IMHO – all taken by me) but I think the idea of inviting the public in over several weeks to build a world map from Lego is brilliant. I would like to point out that sometimes my son gets to play with his Duplo once I’ve finished with it… E-M5 …

Animal Rights

So whatever you think about their aims, or the treatment of animals by drug companies, or the benefits that such treatments bring, I found these guys protesting down the street from my office. I must admit I did a double take when I first saw them as I originally thought the woman’s poster was advocating …

Daniel Corsini

Saw this chap earlier in the week outside Liverpool Street and he didn’t impress me. Heard him today and realised he is actually excellent. Sorry, only one picture, spent my time listening this lunchtime!   Update: link to listen and vote for Daniel here:¬†http://www.molpresents.com/gigs/vote/danielcorsini

Shooting near London Bridge and Monument

OK, that sounds more dramatic than it needs to, but hey, I’ve got to get hits somehow! Anyway, today I walked down to Monument and London Bridge (no, I didn’t go to Arizona…). Lots of tourists, lots of people exploiting the tourists (had to dodge the pickpockets but the Ice cream sellers were fair game) …

Exchange Sq and Liverpool St with Oly 75mm

This lens is mindblowingly good. I’m honestly wondering if it can resolve more detail than the sensor can manage. Before you accuse me of being overblown, look at some of the shots I took today! Note one of the pictures was with the Oly 12mm WA lens. Anyway, I’m still sore that I’ve not been …

Rentamob

I saw these guys preparing to set up a protest outside the station I commute to in London, assumed they were for real with their protest for a 4 day week and snapped a few shots. I then looked closer at the photos and noticed the web address on the cards and placards for something …

In praise of in body image stabilisation

I genuinely cannot believe I took this shot with the so called “crippled” sensor Olympus E-P3 but the different it makes having image stabilisation is out of this world (even versus cameras like the X100). Yes, the E-M5 has better everything (stabilisation, dynamic range, high ISO, resolution) but the E-P3 is still a good camera. …
