The Shard emerges from the mist

Over recent weeks I’ve showcased photographs that had been heavily reworked using Photoshop. On this occasion, things are a bit different. Pictured here emerging from the mist is The Shard in London. I’ve photographed The Shard many times, but I think this is the most dramatic image I have taken of this famous London landmark.

The Citroën C3 Aircross: the best off-roader ever?

In my experience, Citroën makes superb family cars. The C4 Picasso stands out in particular. Having taken a C4 Picasso on a family trip to Scotland a couple of years ago, I was interested to see how the C3 Aircross would compare. I was loaned an Aircross for a few days so I could form my own opinion.

The Citroën C3 Aircross. A Well-designed SUV with a surprising amount of space in the back seat and some great features for the price. Does it, however, make for a good family car?

Black Leopard men’s skincare range: Australia’s latest export

Australia:  A faraway land that has given us Cate Blanchett, Hugh Jackman and Elle Macpherson, among others. A land that has produced some surprisingly good rock groups, such as Wolf Mother and AC/DC. A land with amazing, wild, landscapes, amazing cities and a stunning coastline. Not, however, a place you would associate with men’s skincare and grooming.  Black Leopard is hoping to change all that.
