- Turleigh and Winsley and back ()
Went for a walk. A cloudy Saturday afternoon in a pandemic sort of walk.
- No really, look at these tulips ()
Those orange ones are what Kate calls “my blousy tulips”. They’re amazing, all frills and twiddly bits.
- Garden’s looking nice ()
Everything’s blooming beautifully in the garden. This is 100% Kate’s work, not mine. I just admire.
- Looking up ()
The light last night was amazing. Our walk didn’t take us anywhere that interesting, but it took us underneath lots of trees that were lit up gold and gorgeous in the evening sun. The sky was a fantastic grey steel colour. The gold-lit tree branches sparked and glittered in front of it.
- A short walk with a long lens ()
Another work day done at home, another walk in the early evening light before we go home for pasta and collapsing on the sofa. I took my DSLR and the 50-200mm lens, a combination I’ve ignored for ages. Tonight it’s a loop over the north end of town, past the deserted hotel and the stud […]

- Groundwater ()
The fields and lanes and streams round our way are full up. Water lies everywhere that water shouldn’t be. This afternoon I went out in the bright, low winter sunlight to try and get some photos of unexpected bodies of water. They were everywhere, in every direction.
- Pewsey Wharf to Giant’s Grave ()
Some canal, some steep up, some steep down, some sheep, some turnips, some cold cold wind in your face.
- Sicily ()
A warm winter break K and I spent a long weekend in Sicily, because even in winter it’s blue and golden gold, and the stone benches are warm to sit on, at least in the afternoon, and you can still drink coffee outside, and even a cup of tea, and in the evening you can […]
- A newsletter called Monochrome ()
I’ve started an email publication about black and white photography, predictably called monochrome. Every week/fortnight/month/whatever, I’ll be posting a few black and white pictures and perhaps some thoughts that go with them. Mostly it will be just the pictures though. Substack sounded like a fun new thing to try I’m publishing monochrome on Substack, a hosted platform for email […]
