An excuse for the Picturesque

27th July 2015 – Mixing photography with being sociable limits me to group outings to picturesque places or getting out on my own when the others want a bit of down-time. I humbly offer one view from the over-snapped Quarang… Read more >

A run up to to Skye

25th July 2015 – A friend has loaned their cottage, other friends flying up from London. We can’t fit four in the big car, not with luggage, bedding and all, so I’ll take the food in the C1 and set… Read more >


21st July 2014 – I have loved using the little Samsung NX10. The optical viewfinder and the small size have been particularly significant pluses. Image quality, tho’ very good, is the let-down: it is not quite there, can’t quite hold… Read more >

The new Glasgow hospital

July 14th 2015 – The golden hour again. I am side-tracked on my way home by the architecture of the new South Glasgow – or is it the Quuen Elizabeth.

Two fields

27th June 2015 – Two images made today about twenty miles apart, both from the side of the road and both are really the same shot. Nerston (south of Cambuslang) and Bannockburn (south of Stirling) in their summer colours.

Closing Bracket

7th June 2015 – I opened this sequence with a balcony shot made on the first evening, and am closing it with the same view made on the final morning. Another portentious sky, or just chance biblical references? No time… Read more >

Strawberry and Pistachio

6th June 2015 – Working with the light and with the place is becoming easier and more productive each day. I am really pleased with these two images made in Punto Milocca and Ognina. Colour, light and above all, Sicily.
