We had a little storm up this way, but some mad photographers went out!!!

The day after the storm the sky was some thing to see.


Time to sit down and rest.
Updates two images accepted for Frome and three for Solihull, quite pleased.

I went to the end of the Cromer beach huts for some shots, not knowing that within two days they were all washed away.

Catching up

These I forgot to post.

How can I forget the day John Long, Paul Hurst and I had when John came up to Cromer. Got a memory like a sieve I'm afraid.

Also wanted to put this up, just a straight shot of Cromer pier.

Just a quick snap at the seas edge.   Loved the colours.

Earlier this month we had the Potty Festival.

Morris and Molly dancers descend on the Town, from all over the country to sing, dance and drink their way through the day.  Not really my thing, but I did capture this shot.

On a Forum I published some images that I thought worthy of using for my 'A' Distinction with the RPS.  I was told that my landscapes were too similar, with big skies, wide angle lens and the same view points.
For my candid street images I needed to get in closer rather than be an outsider.
I said I liked my landscapes like that, but was told I needed to be more diverse.  I repeated that that was how I wanted them,  that was my vision.  Not enough breadth.  I said 'breadth, bollocks' and I wont bother with it and upset a respected Distinction Panelist...............hey ho!!


I have had an image accepted for the Fotogram International Salon.


Misty morning.

Jellied eels.

Surprising how many people find these disgusting and don't know how one can eat them.


Did some revisions on old images

Taken some 40 years ago.

Same with this one.

Morston only a couple of years ago.


Dance ti your Daddy............


I like the colours, but it seems I got the wrong knife.

I had the opening to this in mind when I redid this shot as a monochrome.

Got down to the the sea.  Came across these guys fishing who stay out all night in their tents.  Must have very tolerant partners.  Then I got to know this old sea dog.

Went into Norwich and saw this, could'nt resist a shot.


This is a Dragon fruit.  Not impressed with the taste, so used it to create this shot.  Entitled 'Here be dragons'.

Monday, 15 April 2013


Had three images accepted By Great Barr Photographic Society for their 2013 Exhibition.


Did a still life in mono entitled 'Bell, book and candle'.  I reckoned that if I used a Bible it wouldn't have much going for it, so used an old joke book.  The comments I got back were 'why did I take a bell in the loo'.
So my standard reply was 'I'm amazed that I seem to be the only person who takes a bell into the loo with me'!


Quiet day so did another abstract.
Branches reflected in the water.

Howling a gale, but I got to Cromer early to catch the light.

In the Spring the circus comes to Sheringham.  This was taken this morning.

Got the results from Belgrade International Exhibition.  Pleased to say that out of 1037 entries, 300 accepted, I got one accptance.  Saddened by the fact that it was one of last years monochromes and not one of my later colour images.

Weather was good this morning so went down on the beach.  Had my first paddle of the year when I mistimed a wave.

Thursday, 7 March 2013


Surprise, surprise.  At the Photo clubs annual print competition, I came first.  Some 80 odd entries.
This is the image.

Did a doodle that I rather liked.  Shall call it 'Bluebells".


Today my internet connection was back to being its old self.  Also today I changed from Orange to BT as my supplier.  So much hassle.................

One of the forums I put images on was doing a set subject.  This subject was 'Washed up'.  I went down on the beach, the tide was coming in, it was very cold and the cloud cover was coming over.  I think I must be mad!!!!!  Anyway, this was my effort.

Internet down for nearly two weeks, but getting better slowly.  Yesterday got out for half and hour before the snow returned to get this shot.

Wednesday, 16 January 2013


We had some snow.  This is the view from our back bedroom.

Monday, 14 January 2013


Fancied doing a monochrome still life.


Took this scene last year, but was not happy with it, so I went back and reshot it.  Happier with this one.

Shot this one at the same time.

Whilst out I passed this scene.  Well, didn't pass actually, had to shoot it.  There was a snow warning for this day.
