From my rather fun shoot with Priya too many years ago for me to remember. A couple of images we took ended up in the media, copies of which I still have at home.

There was some redevelopment work completed by St Pauls Cathedral in London. One of the features was a covered walkway, which produced this somewhat muted image one dull day.

Yesterday I updated my trusty MacBook Pro to Sierra. Apple have made huge noises about this update and how it’s a transformative change. Personally I can’t see what the fuss is about. It’s largely unchanged in terms of user experience and while there are some nice to haves (Siri, anyone?) most of what’s happened appears to be in the background.

Jennifer plays with her mobile phone on a street corner in London. Taken as part of a vague, pretty much useless attempt at creating a small stock library for my posts here and on Dalmeny Close.

A few years ago I spent time in studios with attractive young women shooting them in their underwear. The aim was to capture a few photographs that could be sold into the “Glamour” market. If I’d been successful I’d be writing this from my luxury yacht, bought with my freelance fees for working on The Sun, Maxim and maybe even Playboy.

At the time I took this First Great Western was in the process of transforming itself into Great Western Railway. I was working on the digital rebranding and took it to support a piece of Customer Experience work I was doing. Snapping images that relate to what you’re working on and researching is a great way of bringing people into the conversation you’re trying to have with them.

I never did get to the bottom of why this street in central Madrid was closed. For a while though it became a pleasant place for people to meander and enjoy the warming autumnal sun.

Seen on the streets of Madrid. Someone calls this ramshackle collection of boxes and blankets home. I wonder if they appreciate the art on their improvised wall?

I like to listen to music on my phone, in fact it’s the primary way I consume it. I have various earphones for the task, from the rather good in-ear buds that came with it to a Skull Candy headset that’s got a brilliant bass response. All of these have one thing in common – the 3.5mm jack.

These apartments are on the edge of the town centre in Watford. Seen from the centre they’re a little monolithic and perhaps a touch out of place. Seen from a different angle, coming up towards the town from the river, and they take on a new shape and context.

I think there is something inherently romantic about a couple walking on a beach in the morning. It doesn’t matter who they are, whether they’re holding hands, chatting or just watching the waves. Walking along the beach together just seems to trigger that part of me that assumes romance is in the air.

My partner and I have discussed vacating the shores of the UK and settling in Japan. Frankly Brexit was a major wake up call that made me realise I’ve been limiting myself creatively and professionally by remaining within the UK. While there is potential for me to benefit in the short to medium term from the vote (ironically helping companies move out of the country!) the longer term is harder to judge. Given my skills are increasingly in demand and can be delivered to any country in the world from any location there’s no rational reason I couldn’t continue my business from Japan as easily as Watford.

It took 3 years and 4 attempts to get inside the house at Wrest Park. Each time we visited there was an event on that stopped us from gaining access to the house.
