Winter travels – Photodump

I haven’t posted anything in quite a while, and as I don’t have a huge amount of free time at the moment, I thought that a photo-centric post would better communicate what I’ve been up to recently.It also helps that Herself gifted me with a rather entertaining telephoto lens for Christmas. We spent our New…

You are the victim of your own rules

Summer is coming to an end in London, and so we took a train to Camden Town for the afternoon before the cold and miserable days are the best we can expect from this city. I brought my camera for the trip and am happy to report that some new street art works have been put up around the neighbourhood. Here are all the pieces that we were…

Faked it, made it.

We took a train to the east side of the city this weekend and I brought my camera along for good measure. Here’s the new street art that I spotted around Brick Lane. Just a short post today.  I’ll be putting up something more substantial at the end of the week. I realise that I…

Street art gallery – Berlin edition

Herself and I are just back from a four day trip to Berlin and while I will save the details of the excursion (and my thoughts about the city) to another post, I am eager to show you some of the street art that we spotted in this most unusual of European capitals.  It took most of our Saturday…

Back in Camden Town – Street Art Gallery

Camden Town Street Art or: Staying Busy While the Woman is Away. Herself has been in Greece visiting family this week. As a result, I’ve been at somewhat of a loose end back home in London. While it’s only been a few days, in even that short time the flat looks like a hurricane blew through and, in…

There is no such thing as revenge

 George Orwell: A Literary Life – Peter Davison (1996) It is said that everybody needs a hobby, but that is not to say you should be limited to only one. While some of my hobbies could be described as practical in their scope, such as learning a new language or exercising, over the last few…

No matter what happens, I am coming with you.

It’s a miserable and rained-out day in West London and while we’re stuck in the flat, I’ve remedied to spend some time publishing a post. We were in East London last week to catch -up with our old Hackney neighbourhood and sure enough, I brought my camera for good measure. We met my brother while we…

Getting back into the groove

After a short time away, your faithful corespondent is back at his blog. To be honest, it’s been a long month and I’ve barely had a moment to myself since September. All I have to show for myself as far as photography goes is a picture that I took a fortnight ago and that I’m using as the…

My Idea of Fun

I was lucky enough to negotiate a day off work last Thursday and since the weather was looking tasty, I grabbed my camera and headed to East London to see what new street art had appeared since my last visit. I took hundreds of photos and have picked the best to present for your convenience…

Time For Action

I was only going to post once today, but I went for a walk on my lunch break and saw some new street art that I haven’t photographed yet. Here’s what I found. You can now follow my adventures on Instagram here.

No one is busy in this world

I didn’t post anything last week as I was in Greece for their Orthodox Church’s Easter celebrations – of which I will write about soon. I took around 1,000 photographs and am currently weeding my way through the best of them. Until then, here are the travel notices from Camden Road station this week. You…

Everybody needs a hobby

Sometimes beautiful, often puerile, but always interesting, I have been photographing the street-art around London for a couple of years now and I’m constantly surprised by the ingenuity and originality shown by artists across the city. We went to Brick Lane at the weekend and I decided to use the visit as an opportunity to…

Shooting Practice

Tired of taking terrible pictures, I bought a new camera a few weeks back and have been trying to improve my photography skills at every available opportunity since.  The woman and I found ourselves at a loose end this afternoon, so we packed my camera and a couple of sandwiches and took the train to…
