This avenue of trees is from Micheldever Wood in Hampshire, a spot about which I have heard much.  Unusually, it is the first photo I took at the location.  Typically, the initial press of the shutter results in something which is OK but, in reality, is the start of exploring the scene.  More creative ideas […]

When I decided to write blog articles to accompany my weekly photo, I did not fully comprehend what a commitment it would be.  While the project is proceeding well, the opposite is definitely not true when it comes to publishing the images.  And a lot can happen during the extended intervening period when I do […]

At the start of this photo-a-week project, I set myself an objective.  No flowers.  Unless absolutely unavoidable. So, for the third time, I am presenting an image of what else, ….. a flower.  It is another in my series of desiccated tulips, a subject which I have been doing quite a lot of late.  Far […]

In my last post, I commented on one of the issues which arises when deciding which photograph to publish for the week.  In that instance, I had three candidates and for the sake of variety opted for the one which it would not be possible to repeat.  This time, the problem is different in that […]

Options When going through the week’s images looking for “the one”, I had a number of options.  I could have shown the latest in the series of flower images I have been making in the past few weeks.  They are good, to my eye at least, but would repeat what I have done previously during […]

This shot, Pairings, was taken at the conclusion of a street photography walk.  It was a circular tour, going from King’s Cross in London to Camden Market and back.  This is a well known location which I have never previously managed to find.  It is a subway which I had heard described as being a […]

If one word sums up my photography for this week, it is “barriers”.  With a lot going on, there was just one opportunity for a photographic outing.  Naturally, I went where there might be some good prospects.  First stop was the BBC’s new headquarters at the end of London’s Regent Street.  Frustratingly, part of the […]

There are many positives to undertaking a challenge which requires the regular production of images.  Not least is the incentive to use the camera.  Life has plenty of other distractions and it is all too easy not to take a photograph for a while. Another benefit such a project is the opportunity to try different […]

During what was a quiet period photography wise, I was looking for a subject in the house for the week’s photo. I had a few ideas before finding this tulip which had, admittedly, seen better days. As well as its faded glory, the stem had become twisted with age into an interesting shape. While I […]

Someone remarked that so far this year I have been doing a lot of travelling to obtain my shot of the week.  That has been purely coincidental since I was visiting those areas for reasons other than photography.  On this occasion, though, I have stayed closer to home, the woods behind my house to be […]
