Brooklands Museum is somewhere I have wanted to visit for a while, so I took the opportunity when a fellow member of my camera club suggested a trip there.  The occasion was its annual Double Twelve Motorsport Festival on 17 June.  If I am honest, I was not entirely sure what that involved, but it […]

Warning: NSFW.  This post contains nudity It is usually my custom to place the main image of my “Photo of the Day” articles at the head of the post, with any supporting images following.  For this post, I have instead put it at the end.  The reason is simple.  It shows people who are naked […]

This is the first of two posts of my images from the Chelsea Flower Show.  I have already posted my main photo of the day, but I took many more.  Once again it was a good event, although overall I did feel that it did not quite match previous years.  A number of regular sponsors […]

When starting this blog just over a year ago, I was not entirely sure what I would write about.  My only idea was to do pieces on anything which came to mind and see how I progressed.  As anyone who has been following me for the last few months will observe, my main interest lies […]

Ely was close to the route home from Norfolk, so I took the opportunity to stop off there.  It is somewhere I have long wanted to visit.  The cathedral is the tallest building in the area, dominating the city and its surroundings.  It is from this visibility that it derives its nickname, “Ship of the […]

If you had asked me where I expected to get my favourite image during my camera club’s long weekend in Norfolk, I would have said How Hill.  The River Ant, which is the location of this photo, flows past and is a scenic spot.  We had visited the previous day and opted to return for […]

Photo of the Day – 7 April 2017: Cloisters

This is what could be described as a “classic” shot of the cloisters at Norwich Cathedral.  A polite way of saying that others have done it before.  It would be a surprise if they had not; few worthwhile locations are unique in photography, especially in the UK.  Only the early pioneers who were shooting their […]

Usually I do not bother with giving out technical details of my shots.  In most circumstances there is little benefit, other than satisfying curiosity, from knowing the camera used or the exposure settings.  For learning about photography, it is better to understand the approach and motivation for taking a shot rather than the purely mechanical […]

It is time to wrap up my review of the current camera market with the fourth and final instalment of this series.  I now have a camera system which I am happy to use in most circumstances.  That would not be the case if I did a lot of action photography, for which a fast […]
