Spinnaker – Old Portsmouth

image

Having sights like this 10 mins from my house never ceases to amaze me. I shoot the Spinnaker a lot but this is my favourite angle. I’m happy with the light I captured in this shot.

I saw this installation near the south bank on my way to a meeting. The buildings behind framed him quite nicely.

Paris

One of my favourite pictures that I took last new years at The Louvre in Paris. The tone of the photo gives the shot a vintage feel. It is a two hour queue to get into the world famous gallery which houses The Mona Lisa but luckily the surroundings offer lots of photo opportunities. Shot using Hipstamatic using my iPhone 4S.

Olympics 2012

Well what an Olympics it’s been. We are left in little doubt that the games were a resounding success. Following the Queens jubilee, London 2012 only added to the feel of community and pride in Britain. I was lucky enough to see the men’s cycling at Box Hill, near Dorking in Surrey. Although the event didn’t fruit any medals for Team GB it was a spectacular occasion. As the athletes ploughed through miles upon miles of English countryside one could seldom thing of a better setting for such an event. I managed to get this shot whilst lying on the asphalt in Box Hill. Although I very nearly got flattened by the hoard of cyclists it was worth it as I feel this shot really captures the drive of the athletes. Shot using my iPhone 4S.

Explosive Thoughts

Along the same theme as the last picture that I posted, this is another example of ‘Space Invader’s work that I found in Barcelona. This bomb is situated in the centre of the city on a half demolished wall. What is amazing is that the tiles are placed on plaster that is falling away meaning that the installation could easily be vandalised or removed. I suppose the fact that it still remains in tact shows that the Catalans love street art just as much as we do in the UK. Shot using iPhone 4S.
