Apparently these are also called “groynes”, but that’s always been a bit too funny of a word to use everyday, so breakwaters they are.
My overriding memory of taking this photo was just how unbelievably cold it was. Mary had, very wisely, opted to sit in the car and read whilst I went and froze on the beach.
Amusingly, the only other person on the beach that evening was another photographer…
This interesting little boat sailed past our hotel whilst we were on holiday. It didn’t stop, since our resort was ‘protected’ by a line of armed guards along the private beach. Hmmm….
In 2007 I became a husband and step-father. We honeymooned in Kenya, and although we hadn’t planned on going on safari, we decided it would be silly not to. We took a 2 day trip to the Maasai Mara, with an overnight stay in one of the most luxuriant tents I’ve ever seen. The whole thing was simply breathtaking.
Another blast from the past. Apologies if this blog is reading a little bit like a Greatest Hits album of late.
This is another of my favourites from 2004 when I was experimenting with still life using the limited materials I had close to hand as subjects. I like the lighting on this, which was achieved using a cheap LED desk lamp.
A couple of shots from a boys’ day out at Brands Hatch in May 2012 for the DTM practice day.
Underground train systems need fresh air so that they don’t end up smelling like an armpit.
Smelling almost like an armpit appears to be ok, though, based on my experiences.
Welcome to 2002, and a picture from the first digital camera I owned – a Kodak DX3900 with a whopping 3.1 megapixels. I remember being quite pleased with this shot, as controlling the exposure on that camera wasn’t exactly easy. From the looks of things, I was a bit impoverished in the memory card department, as although the maximum resolution for the camera was 3.1 megapixels, this was taken in the not-quite-lowest 1.6mp mode. The original is just 1536×1024 pixels!
It was probably on my blog at some point in the past, but I suspect it was hidden away in one of the gallery incarnations I flirted with. Here it is again.
