  The first Sunday in November always brings the renowned London to Brighton Veteran Car Run.  It is the world’s oldest motoring event which has run continuously.  A widely held belief is that the event celebrates the abolition of the legal requirement for someone with a red flag to walk in front of a motorised […]

Brighton, Pride weekend and some of the most extrovert people on the planet were putting on a show.  It was an opportunity too good to miss.  Not having been to a Pride event previously, I went with a group organised by the Royal Photographic Society.  That was definitely a good move.  The parade started at […]

I came across this religous ceremony, the Blessing of the River Thames, by chance.  The story is that I had travelled to London Bridge for an organised photo walk around the Borough Market area.  Unfortunately, having mixed up my dates, I discovered it had taken place the previous day.  Oops.  The organiser is a friend […]

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 […]

I have been going to the Chelsea Flower Show for a few years and it is always an enjoyable day out.  It represents the ultimate in gardening, even if everything on display is a construct.  Ephemeral, the show gardens exist for a brief period with one ultimate aim.  To be in peak condition when the […]
