At last I had found one of those iconic white stone Greek churches set amongst olive trees and a bright cobalt sky as a backdrop. Staying near Skaloma on the Gulf of Corinth I was gradually exploring the nearby fishing villages and Paralia Sergoylas was one of my favourites …… well it had to be after finding that church! […]
I didn’t travel far for this post! …..in fact just to my nearest town (Gosport) where I visited the old part of the Municipal Cemetery, never been there before but I was quite taken by it. It’s overgrown, the gravestones are hard to read and some are subsiding. There are blackberry bushes, spider’s webs and […]

I don’t get to Oxford as much as I would like but what ever the English weather there is always something different to photograph, here are a few recent pictures which made me smile.
I can’t write anything new about the environmental impacts of plastic waste, it’s very much on the political agenda and the current news. Landscapes can become visually unappealing, marine life can be affected and locals have to live with it. Many are worried not least people who are living near these toxic waste areas. We […]
One thing I have noticed since being the VPO (very proud owner) of a ‘proper’ camera is that us photographers can always be seen surreptitiously taking sideways glances at fellow photographers to see if their lens is bigger or wider or both. I’ve noticed sometimes that a slight nod might be directed my way suggesting […]
