How is everyone ? Here in the UK, as in most parts of the world, we are still in lockdown. And as you know i am getting out for a 30 min walk every day. Not only does this give me a much needed dose of exercise, it also lets me see how my local … Continue reading Behind the Scenes of the UK Lockdown
Took my daily walk at lunchtime today and was amazed to see every house in my road displaying the "NHS Thank You" posters that i designed last Friday and the rainbows that local children are displaying as a sign of hope. It looks great and hopefully will let health workers around the globe know how … Continue reading Rainbows and “Thank You’s”
One thing that isolating has allowed me to do is to go through my old images, pictures i have never sen before. Between 1998 and 2001 i shot a lot of medium format film, both for myself and clients. Being a large negative i never had the scanning facilities to see most of what i … Continue reading Back to 1998…when i was learning medium format.

Hopefully the Governments measures are starting to be listened … Continue reading Life behind the lockdown – post 2

Generally, yes. The streets are noticeably quieter than usual, as these pictures will show. However there … Continue reading UK Life behind the lockdown
Well, it had to come. Home quarantine is here in the UK. And i for one welcome it as the only way to stop some of the most selfish acts of behaviour i have ever seen over the past few days. Even my next door neighbour had her son & his girlfriend up from London … Continue reading UK virus lockdown – post 4 – a few hours before full isolation.
As we have been asked by Government, despite today being Mother's Day, we have stayed indoors to help prevent the wide spread of this disease. Well, we are lucky enough to have spent it in the garden actually. And to help cheer you up here's a selection of pictures i have taken today to show … Continue reading UK virus lockdown – post 3 – a beautiful spring day
Saturday March 20th, 2pm in the afternoon. This is my first visit to a supermarket since panic buying became a new sport. I must say, apart from fresh meat and booze the shelves were well stocked, the tills were coping well and the shops weren't particularly busy. Hopefully the ones who are panicking will soon … Continue reading UK virus lockdown – Post 2 – a visit to the supermarket.

I have decided to use this blog to document how my community and part of the world … Continue reading Corona, Street Photography and history
