3 Islands of the Cyclades

We had 2 weeks holiday in Greece and I think this shot sums it up. Chilling out in beautiful sunshine, looking across the beautiful blue Aegean Sea at whitewashed houses with blue woodwork. What most peoples idea of Greece is. We flew from Bristol to Mykonos, then took the...

A Change after A Rest

I must apologise for the lack of Blog Posts. This is a result of feeling under the weather and feeling lethargic. I guess this happens to everyone at some time. Added to this I had two weeks holiday in Greece. I have posted a few shots of the trip...

Extreme on the Water

I arranged to meet Martin at Cardiff Bay. I was on time! The Extreme Sailing Series had come to the Bay for Act 4, so we had decided to get some shots of the day. The event is held in Cardiff Bay, where the Barrage was built during the...

May Day in Toulouse (Part 2)

Welcome to part 2 of the May Day March on a wet day in Toulouse. These two guys stopped right in front of me, and seemed to have given up on keeping dry. Once again I got in amongst the demonstrators to get this shot, so I could shoot...

May Day in Toulouse (Part 1)

This post should have been done a long time ago, on my return from Toulouse. I have so many images from the day and I did make other posts of our time in Toulouse, but due to not feeling 100% it had become a task and I wasn’t on...

Along the Garrone

Wandering aimlessly through the streets I turned out of one street and saw this avenue of trees. I couldn’t see over the wall so walked over and saw the wide expanse of the River Garonne. I saw the couple above looking out across the river. The tree lined street...

A Wander in Toulouse

I cannot emphasise enough what a beautiful city Toulouse is. As I’ve said before you can get everywhere by foot as it is so flat, and the streets are so narrow that the only public transport is the “Navette Ville”. A shuttle bus that travels through and around the...

Shooting the Beauty

When out shooting we see all sorts of different characters. They attract our attention for so many different reasons. It may be the activity they are engaged in, their stance, their location in relation to other objects. It could be something they’re wearing, such as a colourful hat or...

Follow Your Faith

This post is from an observational point of view. All the shots were taken in one continuous stroll along Queen Street, and are posted in the order I saw them. I didn’t set out to take these shots, more what was presented to me on the day. I have...

The Lollipop Man

As I sat on a bench to rest my weary legs this guy came along with a basket in his hand. He approached the girl above and offered her a lollipop. He asked for money for what I believe was a charity, but I couldn’t hear properly from where...

A Brief Interlude

I took a trip to Cardiff yesterday, so thought I would put up a couple of posts, before resuming with the posts from Toulouse. The sun was so intense, and very hot when in it, but in the shade it was very dark and and a lot colder. There...

French Parking

I was leaning out of the window of our 2nd floor hotel room in Toulouse, just watching the world go by, when this mini pulled up on the road below. He started to reverse backwards into this parking space. I could see there was no way he was going...
