Thirsty Batman

A world so full of superheros, that sometimes you just pass on by.

Took my nerdling to London Comic Con, my only regret was just taking a compact camera, but I will know next time.



I suppose I don’t quite understand the need to stagger round with an enormous cardboard gun on the Docklands Light Railway, but I can’t knock the enthusiasm. Poor Batman, no Robin it seems.

This is my students end of year show, do come if you can, lots of blood, sweat and tears got them here.

If you can’t make it, you can still see some of the work in the on-line catalogue.

It’s not the Greeks……

Visited friends in Germany earlier in the year, not everything in Germany is like Schloss Elmau.




1,400 km of inner border, debt collecting and shopping malls, all in a couple of afternoons.

Boldly Going…..

Thought I would start the year by dipping into my back catalogue a bit. Back in 2001, I was a freelance attached to Bill Johnston Photography and went to Abbey Road Studios to shoot film music composer Jerry Goldsmith recording with the London Symphony Orchestra on the, back then, experimental SACD format.

The pictures all went to Bill Johnston, so I never saw them, but they seem to have surfaced on the net.

More than taking the shots was having to sit in the middle of the LSO in Abbey Road being silent during takes, how good is that!

B&W CHALLENGE – DAY 5: Dairy Ice Cream

Actually shot more in the Summer on a busy Saturday at Whitby Abbey, somehow holds a slight “December” feel.

This is my last “Post a B&W photo each day for five days and nominate a new soul each day to do the same”, so apologies if you wanted to do it, but didn’t get nominated, you will have to self nominate (it doesn’t make you go blind)! 

Today I was going to nominate my old friend Judy. Great and wonderful agitprop pictures, solid and committed photographer and socialist, queen of pinhole too but she had been nominated by Vassa. This is the problem with whoever devised this project. I thought Judy would be able to follow the Englishness of the scene in my shot, so, rather than try and find a second choice to Judy, I have opted to nominate someone with a completely different style and approach, so Carla Gradiski, it’s you.

B&W CHALLENGE – DAY 4: Umbrella

This is Day 4 of the 5 day challenge via Facebook. The purpose is  to “Post a B&W photo each day for five days and nominate a new soul each day to do the same.”

I am going to switch countries now and pick on Francesca Lazzarini to spread the challenge in Italy. Liquid light maybe?
