I hope you find something that you like on this photo-blog.  These images show things that stop me, make me look, admire, connect, wonder and sometimes just simply question what is or what might be going on.

October 2017 update.  

I have now received the Chinese Photographers magazines in which a number of my Sciryuda images have been published in the 'Window of the World' section of the August 2017 edition.  Many thanks to Wang Baoguo and Linlin Duan (Chinese Photographers) for their help, support and patience.  Thanks too to Karen Harvey (Shutterhub) and Adam Dunning for their encouragement.

Sciryuda images will be exhibited in Nottinghamshire next year.  Provisional dates are:

  -  Worksop Library : 10th May 2018 - 12th July 2018
  -  West Bridgford Library :  28th July 2018 - 9th September 2018

More information to follow in due course.

New work and gallery.

I continue to work slowly on the River Maun project, moving from where it concludes and simply without any fuss joins another river, and then tracking back to its source.  Of course, this sort of project has been done before but this is my river.  The River Maun is one of the rivers that flows through the heart of Sherwood Forest (Sciryuda), and is a related but separate follow-on project.  Please see the images within this Blog section (below) and a further selection of images in gallery FOUR of this site.

Like many of us, I don't always have the time to get out to work on my projects.  Paul Strand had a World on his Doorstep and I know I have one too - so I just go out into my garden and always find something that I have never seen before.  A few images on my blog (scroll down below).

Adam Dunning's website continues to develop here and new images from Germany continue to appear on his blog  - please take a look.  Some more new work has appeared, so please check out 'Behind the High Dyke' and 'The Big Hole', about a coal mine.  Wonderful images.
