A wander round London

Every 6 months or so Sam and I take a trip to London to see some photography exhibitions, art and design, and generally wander the city. It’s a day trip city break. We did this back in July last year. Cheap tickets. Good exhibitions. It’s a simple thing and I’m never bored.

FYI there’s an exhibition on video games coming up at the V&A later this year. I have high hopes for it as it features Journey, The Last of Us and No Man’s Sky (which I really need to return to). We’ll be going down for that and another wander.

I miss the ferry

It’s been 2 months since I moved my studio from a space in Liverpool to a space in my house and because of that I rarely get the ferry any more. I think I need to do Ferry Friday or something. Have one day a week when I work from a cafe in Liverpool because I do miss the walk to the ferry and the ride over. It’s not such an issue this time of year because with the clocks changing we lose the amazing sunrise / sunsets and the ferry gets busier. Those winter months though. They’re the absolute best.

Bulgaria

I’ve got a boat load of photos from our travels that I just haven’t properly sorted out yet. Bulgaria was 2013 and I have no idea why I didn’t get around to sorting them. I’ll get to them, soon hopefully. It is interesting looking back though as I see the photos differently with hindsight.

I really enjoyed Bulgaria. We would do an early walk around the island and then spend the day on the beach swimming and sun bathing. It was a good combination of photography and relaxing.

Switch House by Herzog & De Meuron

Designed by architects Herzog & De Meuron the extension to Tate Modern is stunning. I need to go back and explore some more as there’s a lot to take in. I love the way light reflects off the buildings over the road. At the top there’s a viewing platform offering views across the river.

My best of 2017

So here I am in April sat in a coffee shop (Love Locks, Liverpool) drinking coffee and I’m trying to think of what to write for today’s blog post when I happen to find an album in Lightroom Mobile called “Best of 2017”. I must have made this at the end of last year, or even the start of this year and obviously I never published it. So. Easy content day.

I know it’s lazy but I’m trying to plan the first episode of my Leica Journal/Diary/vlog/thing and it’s a lovely day so I want to plan that and shoot it today. So enjoy what I once considered the best images I produced in 2017.

Lakes Alive 2017

Last year I was commissioned to photograph the Lakes Alive festival in Kendal. It’s this lovely little weekend event around the Lake District town of Kendal. There’s evening light installations, climbs up to the castle for the view and more art, and a whole series of fun family events in the town. It’s like a mini version of Light Night.
