Board

A visit to the South Bank in London and the famous undercroft that is inhabited by skaters. Some great graffiti as a backdrop and these three lads sat watching others skateboarding.

Just messing about in the garden with some camera movement and flowers to create an abstract effect.

Vinyl

This is within 20 yards of the hotel I am staying in this week. A walkway through to the site of a former EMI vinyl record pressing plant. Now being turned in to houses, busines units and a leisure complex.

Power

Another trip in to central London and a chance to capture an image I have long wanted to add to my collection. Lots of lovely dark clouds skimming through the sky and of course the river Thames swooshing by, all make for perfect long exposure conditions.

Patience

As I have been working in West London in recent months, I finally took the opportunity to head in to central London for a few hours. I sat in Baker Street station for a few minutes and just caught this shot of a single guy patiently waiting, but waiting for what?

West

The weekend weather was so fantastic I had to take the chance of a visit to the beach. This was shot at West Bexington in Dorset, whilst I was on my school reunion weekender. The colours were quite spectacular and so I had to get the camera out to capture the clear sky and blue sea.

Ruin

I do love a good pier image. This is the ruined Birnbeck Pier, Weston super Mare, which is rapidly falling in to the sea. A pretty gloomy Sunday morning, with some great clouds streaking the sky.

Mustang

Whilst my car was at the garage this morning having an MOT, the garage owner showed me this beautiful 1965 Ford Mustang. It was in superb condition considering it was over 50 years old. I Couldn’t resist the chance for a shot.

Inner Self

I had the chance to join an organised photowalk around Bristol with other Fujifilm fans and a couple of bonafide Fujifilm Ambassadors. A real treat and enjoyed the day so much. I really want to get to grips with street photography and have tried a few times without any success. This was a chance to have a go in a relaxed atmosphere with plenty of help on hand.

This was my favourite image of the day, a kind of self portrait.

Fatima

The third image from Barcelona. A small chapel inside the Basilica De Santa Maria Del Pi. The basilica has a bell tower that offers one of the highest viewpoints across Barcelona, needless to say that with my fear of heights I didn’t attempt the ascent.
