A long time ago before I even picked up a camera my big interest were aircraft. It was sparked by the comings and goings of the local aerodrome White Waltham, about a 15 minute bike ride from my home. There on long summer days and in a huge uninterrupted sky I’d watch the comings and goings of light aircraft but be overawed in those days by one one in particular. It was a silver DC-3 Dakota that would lumber along the grass runway and take flight with a guttural moan and almost relief. With its perfect uncomplicated, sophisticated smooth lines of 1930’s America was a complete change from the usual single engined light aircraft buzzing around. It was owned by a aerial mapping company based at the airfield for surveying, it now sits in the French Pyrenees in a museum. At some point I stopped going to the airfield — ot...

To write about, photograph, draw or even talk about Venice to anyone turns into an exercise in not doing it via tired metaphors or cliches. It has to be one of the most (over) visited places on the planet, and in many ways it does suffer from the swathes of selfie stick carrying tourists that disgorge from the skyscraper like cruise liners that dock there. They flock to the hot spots like St Marks Square and the Rialto Bridge but, and this is a pretty big but, you will find your own bit or part of Venice. It’ll be in a corner of a small piazza or maybe a little used humped back bridge as it jumps over a narrow canal into a dark passageway somewhere, but there will be some point when you’ll be the only person there and that will be your Venice. It’s also a place that returning to provides a new perspective, and you’l...

What’s the word that would describe the bit between a real interest and obsession? Whatever it is that’s the way I feel about Iceland. I don’t mind admitting that it came first from music and specifically maybe Sigur-Ros. That sometimes atonal drone sound of post rock came at me like an invisible force and sparked an Iceland interest. It was like no other sound I’d heard before, influenced from and by other places and things and yet it’s own separate special noise formed by itself in it’s own shape and reflecting not just a musical influence but the land and country of it’s origin too. Sometimes though things, places and people are always there inside you waiting to be realised and discovered. Such it was with Iceland.

Vaguely influenced by Scandinavia and still with strong relationships with them geopolitically, Ice...

Let's climb Snowdon they said - it'll be great they said. Well it was steep, busy and smothered in a damp, cold, cloud at the top meaning we saw nothing, but it was spectacular an experience and the pint of cider at the bottom was something else. Snowdonia itself was outstandingly beautiful - from the coal slag heaps glistening silver in the sun, to the mountainous scenery surrounding it and the small villages peppering the countryside. I recommend it .......

It's an old tractor, but it still works .... just and i though on a sunny day how good the "patina" of it looked so thought i'd concentrate on the detail of it rather than the whole. Beauty is in the detail after all......
