Anyone for Cricket?

So I was lucky enough to be taken to the Cricket at Lords today. I used to be a huge Cricket fan in my youth and followed both Glamorgan and England through highs and lows. As ever, you acquire responsibilities and other occupants of your time and you lose track of things that were once …

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 …

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 …

The Show is held in early July, and run by the Royal Horticultural Society at Hampton Court Palace in southwest London. The show features show gardens, floral marquees and pavilions, talks and demonstrations. Erected …

City of London Festival – Sardana Dance

On my way back and forth to the post office near where I work I had noticed some great (free) performances by european musicians in Broadgate circle this week. I skulked past with my E-M5 today to take some photos of Sardana Dance, a Catalonian cobla (wind ensemble) formed by eleven instruments.

Anyone for Tennis?

Some photos from my trip to Wimbledon yesterday. You may recognise some of the players. A great day out with only a little rain… Taken with my E-M5, 7-14mm and 75-300mm

Up

A quick look at the top of some of the city’s tallest buildings (and surrounds)  with the E-M5 and the Oly 12mm F2

St Paul’s in the Summer Sun

Today I visited the area around St Paul’s Cathedral, the Millennium (wobbly) bridge and Tate Modern. It’s an amazing area, particularly in the sun! The only negative from all of this is that I was slightly disappointed with the output from my E-M5. I suspect I might try out something other than my Oly 12mm …
