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.

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 […]

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. When finally we did get inside this view down the gardens was a reminder of how careful garden design can merge the […]

Gibraltar is a small piece of land perched on the end of Spain. It’s barely the size of a small town, yet this place is vehemently British and determined to remain so. It’s solution to the natural problem of population growth is twofold: people live in Spain; and they reclaim land. The effects of reclaiming […]

My relationship with HSBC was short lived. I’d intended on using them as the business for my bank after the Co-operative annoyed me one last time. One thing led to another and after a pretty pleasant (if uninspiring) onboarding I found myself locked out of my online account before I’d even managed to get access […]

For all the tales of Hiroshima and the devastation caused by “the bomb” dropped on the city and its inhabitants, I think this is one of the most profound. This tree survived the blast. It stands on the edge of Hiroshima’s rebuilt castle, acting like nature’s memorial to her fallen. Surviving devastating heat and shockwaves, […]

For the past few weeks I’ve been looking at ways to break the link between where I am physically based and the income I can generate. This was driven in large part by the Brexit vote prompting me to reappraise whether I want to remain in a UK I don’t believe in, but what it’s […]

One of the (many) things I love about visiting English Heritage properties is the reenactments that take place. They pick up on a small detail of history and expand and explore to give you a fuller picture of how life was. In this case it was riding. A Victorian lady wanted to go for a […]

A while back I did a street shoot where some things went a little wrong. I didn’t quite get the images I wanted and while I “rescued” one I was never entirely happy with it. After I started using Affinity Photo I thought I’d go back and revisit this set to see whether there was […]

The padlocks have gone now. They used to be left by lovers proclaiming their affection for one another, but they became a nuisance and were causing problems for the bridge where they were clamped shut. I guess I should feel proud that I had the opportunity to see such a thing.

Theresa May has become the new Prime Minister and while I’d argue she doesn’t have a mandate from the people of the UK in any way shape or form to be so, I guess she’s what we’re going to have to put up with for a bit. The team she’s assembling around her looks interesting […]
