Lens-Artists Landscapes

This week's Lens -Artists challenge set by Amy is Landscapes. I have viewed some really stunning shots today, so I think I'm going to take a slightly different interpretation of this theme.  Please excuse the quality at times as these were all taken in the 1990's with film, and there has been some degradation in… Continue reading Lens-Artists Landscapes

Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Anything Construction Related

This week Cee's B&W photo challenge is the subject 'Construction related'.  Living here in Kingston we have a lot of construction going on almost constantly.  Today was a nice sunny day, cold, but not clouded and snowing like the few days before.  I set about trying to get some good contrasts with the sky and… Continue reading Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Anything Construction Related

River Walks – Kingston to Walton-on-Thames

Yesterday I continued my trek down the River Thames.  Picking up where I left off before at Kingston Bridge, and following the river down to Walton-Upon-Thames.  This was breaking into new territory for me as I have not been past Hampton Court in the past.  It also meant I really had no idea how far… Continue reading River Walks – Kingston to Walton-on-Thames

Sunday Evening Sky

Walking home tonight we were blessed with one of those skies that just make you stop and stare.  Sorry the quality is not great, but like with so much these were taken with my iPhone 5s.  Not exactly top of the range.  However, the view from Kingston Bridge, with the trees bordering Home Park were… Continue reading Sunday Evening Sky
