Some photos taken on evening strolls after the work from home shift, coming up to Christmas 2020. A strange time, all round, but we’re keeping safe, staying local, and all those important things. I hope you’ve had a peaceful end of year. Here’s to going slightly further afield at some point in 2021.
A Sunday afternoon walk to Greenwich Park, through the flower garden, past the bandstand to say hello to my uncle playing piano with a Big Band on the bandstand, then on to the Wolfe statue for the classic view over the park looking north.
One day – one day – I’ll pull together some proper then-and-now photos taken from this spot over the last 15 years. But this is how it looks now: the grass in the park very slightly greened up and recovered after weeks without rain; the Isle of Dogs and Canary Wharf stopped at this particular moment of development, a brief pause before the glass and steel buildings spread further out from Canada Square. I’ll no doubt be back there in the coming weeks – maybe I’ll try a then-and-now then.
Two shots taken late afternoon from Greenwich Park, before the sunset really started.
Both pictures were taken on my new Fuji Xt20 which arrived on Saturday. My first impressions from the weekend’s shooting are very positive indeed: I’ve loved my XT-10 but this is quicker to focus, quicker to start up, and the files are – as you’d expect from 24mp vs 16mp – bigger and richer. I’m quite excited by the possibilities.
Here’s a bonus shot of Deptford Creek taken with it on Saturday afternoon.
I’ve never been massively excited about sunset pictures, but it’s hard to resist when Greenwich Park is a short evening bike ride away and the sky looks like this.
In other news, I now have a Facebook page for my photography; ‘Like’ it, if you like.
Some product photos taken for Fiona Veacock Ceramics on a warm, damp, post-General Election morning in June. You can find out more about – and buy – Fiona Veacock Ceramics here, or see more from the shoot here.
If you’re an artist/craftsperson and need product photos for your marketing and publicity, I’d love to hear from you – get in touch!
I hadn’t been on the London Eye for at least decade, maybe longer; possibly hadn’t even thought of going on it after a flurry of visits after it opened. Some friends had some kind of magic tourist pass and kindly brought us along as guests on just the right kind of day for it: blue skies, not much visible smog. I wish I had some shots from the last time I went on it, though; some compare-and-contrast of the skyline would be fascinating.
