I don’t think there is a wrong place or time to read. This gentleman decides a bench in a side street in Bath was the perfect place to pause and spend some time with his Kindle.

A strange experience at the Tate Modern, and one I heartily recommend.

This was taken on the Christmas Bank Holiday. My family and I had just watched Rogue One and were walking home from the cinema. It was a couple of miles walk, and while we started it in daylight within a mile or so night had descended.

After I took the decision to leave the UK something changed in me: I started looking at the various business relationships I have in a very different light. Because my focus is now shifting to the Pacific Rim I’ve been less interested in companies that are ONLY based in the UK or ONLY serving the UK market. This has particularly affected the various agencies I’ve used on-and-off to find contracts and bits of work.

A couple of times a day I have to get out of the office and wander round the streets of London. I think it’s important to get out and about, get some fresh air and look at something further away than the screen that sits on my desk a metre from my face.

I make a point of going out for a walk at lunchtime. It gets me away from the office and lets me clear my head, ready for whatever comes at me in the afternoon. Sometimes I just wander about, othertimes I snap photos.

It was the first snow of the year. It was wet snow, the sort that’s almost melted on its way down and clings and soaks you through. As I stepped off the train from Euston I took out my phone and snapped a quick POV shot before the shivering started.

Something those of us who enjoy our photography should do every now and then is experiment. We should take ourselves out of the comfort of what we know and try something different.

Seen on London’s Southbank, a pair of tourists consult their iPad for ideas on where to go next. As much as I love my iPhone I find the larger screen of an iPad makes it easier to read maps and pick up ideas when I’m touring a city.

Seen on London’s Southbank. This lady was collared by an overseas camera crew who started asking her opinion on something or other. She appeared happy to give it.

This American tourist was keen to get her photo taken with one of the many bulls that appear outside restaurants in Kobe. Another feature of these restaurants is Spiderman is sometimes seen in close proximity, though why I’ve never got to the bottom of.

Invariably some bright spark will decide to reboot the Star Wars franchise and we’ll have a new version of “A New Hope” in the cinemas. If they were going to do it now this is who I reckon would make a great cast…

Forgot about this chap. He was cheerfully standing around getting his photo taken during Pride in London in 2016. Kind of sums up the atmosphere really, everyone having a lot of fun in their own special way.

I found myself down by The Thames in London this week. It was a beautiful, sunny day and the light was perfect. The sun sweeps round closer to the horizon, which gives it a warmer light, even if the air temperature is much lower.

If you get a chance to visit the Roman Baths in, um, Bath, then do so. It’s a fascinating exploration of more than just how Romans used to socialise. There are also insights into how Rome co-opted previous cultures and customs and called them their own, and how this continued through to the modern era as the Baths were adapted and “customised” by subsequent generations to meet their own needs and expectations.
