Human Ants

I was recently up in Glasgow and found myself having to kill couple of hours in the afternoon. Walking around exploring and taking pictures, I came across this fantastic mural by street artist Sam Bates a.k.a Smug. It was obvious what the artist had in mind and I felt I had to oblige. #streetart #mural

Shot on the run

I’ve always enjoyed running. During the 80’s I lived in Miami and ran in three Miami Marathons, with a personal best of 3 1/2 hours. These days I tend to spread the load between swimming, cycling and running. Whilst I find running the most punishing on the joints, it’s still the quickest and easiest way to grab 30 to 45 mins of cardio vascular and I always pack my running shoes when I go on a trip.

At the end of last week’s hectic schedule, I was shooting a job in Homburg Germany. On the evening before the long drive back to Blighty, I managed to grab half an hour to myself and go for a run through the forest which, quite literally, backed onto the doorstep of our hotel. The cool fresh air mixed with the smell of pine resin and freshly cut timber was a heady mix.

Here are a few iPhone only pics.

When I’m not taking photos, I’m taking photos

About a year ago I got into cycling in a big way, bought a titanium frame road bike and officially became a MAMIL. I try and get out at least one a week for a long ride, usually on Sunday mornings. A couple of weekends ago I awoke to a crisp, sunny November morning and headed out on one of my regular rides around the hills of Surrey and Kent. The combination of early morning light, low mist and autumnal colours was so spectacular that with every twist and turn of my ride I was presented with another photo opportunity. These are a just few of those moments caught on my iPhone.

A wild and wind-swept Marianne

 

After spending a really nice day together visiting ‘Grandad Whitstable’ and doing some portrait photography for her art project, my daughter Mally and I packed up the gear and headed back to London. We decided to take a detour along the sea front at Herne Bay to watch the sunset. As we soaked in nature’s visual feast, I grabbed this windswept shot.
