Another short post from me as I’ve just spent an hour “curating” this selection of images and my dinner is calling me!

Today was the Fujiholics London Photo Walk. A great event with about 60+ people attending. Not enough time to speak to everyone, but good to chat with those I did get to speak to, some familiar faces, some new and some surprise meetups with people I’ve met on my walking group.

Photo City Exhibition – ISO 400; 14mm; f/4; 1/3200 sec (click image to view larger size)

This is a short post (for me), just to show some images I took while viewing the Photo City exhibition and later while I wandered the streets of London with my X-T1 for a couple of hours and popped into the Tate Modern – one of my favourite locations.

Sloane Square to Brompton Cemetery

Last week I attended another photo walk with the Surrey & Hampshire Photography Group. A small group of about 15 walked a route that took us from our starting point at Sloane Square to the Royal Hospital Chelsea, down to the River Thames and over Chelsea Bridge, into and through Battersea Park, crossing back over the river on Albert Bridge, along the embankment, up through Chelsea and into Brompton Cemetery, around 5 miles in total.

Australia trip part 2 (part 1 here – Blue Mountains).

Our visit to Australia started in Sydney, but we also returned there after our jaunt to the Blue Mountains and again at the end of our stay before flying home. So by the end of it, we’d grown quite accustomed to Sydney.

What sort of photographer am I?

This used to be a question that was easy to answer.

When I first started out in photography I only made landscape images, so I guess at that time I was a landscape photographer?

Derwent After Sunset

About five years ago I bought a macro lens for close-up work, so did I also become a macro photographer?

Street photography workshop

Street Photography workshop

Street photography workshop – 14mm; ISO 200; 1/3000 sec; f/4.0

After attending a Fuji X-perience day last month that included a session with Matt Hart, I thought I would treat myself to one of his workshops and get some tips on street photography and using my newly acquired Fuji X-T1.

Matt is an accomplished street photographer, a quick look at the images on his web site will confirm that. He’s also an official Fuji X-photographer, so knows the gear inside out.

The group size was small, only six of us, which is always a plus sign for me when booking a workshop. The cost was also very reasonable when compared to other workshops that I looked at.
