City of London, Inception style!

Over the past week, I have spent a massive amount of time using Photoshop. I’ve been doing all sorts of crazy things using the software, often late into the night. This edited image of the City of London, inspired by the film Inception, was great fun to produce.

Photography challenge: 30 minutes at home with no preparation

When Izzy, my youngest daughter, saw this photograph and declared; “It’s beautiful daddy,” I knew I’d taken an image that worked! Better still, it showed that a really simple photography challenge I’d set myself had worked and I’m going to share the idea with you.

Having run out of time to go on a photo walk, I set myself a very simple 30 minute photography challenge. This striking image of an old rose was the result.

Ottawa street scene

There’s something about North American street scenes that I find incredibly photogenic. This particular image was taken on my recent trip to Ottawa. With the grid formation of the streets and traffic lights running into the distance, it looks typically North American. With the snow and ice on the ground plus the bi-lingual signage, however, I think this scene is unmistakably Canadian!

A street scene in Ottawa. At first glance it simply looks very North American but the snow, ice and bi-lingual street signs make this a very Canadian scene.

The Square Mile, with added colour

This photograph of London’s Square Mile nearly didn’t happen. It was taken in the early afternoon and despite the fact I had post-school childcare in place for my daughters, I was keen to get home as quickly as I could to spend time with them. I had spent much of the day shooting photos and I wasn’t particularly bothered about taking any more.

Framing a subject. A simple photography trick when all else goes wrong!

This photograph was taken with the help of my youngest daughter, Izzy. She very kindly agreed to hold up this old picture frame so I could take a shot of a colourful market as we looked down at it from a bridge overhead.
