Our recent trip to India brought us, at sunrise, to the Taj Mahal on a overcast and rainy day. It is such an iconic building it seems incredibly familiar but it is still incredibly moving when you see it for the first time, and you can’t turn away. Looking at the different angles. Here is a pretty standard composition taken from the mosque.
I have recently returned from a trip to India. My first visit. We travelled the tourist path round the Golden Triangle starting in Delhi, and then Agra, and Jaipur. This is the from a visit to the largest mosque in Delhi.
Well this is not a Christmas image, but the fireplace in a lodge in Yellowstone, but looks cozy enough for a pre-Christmas snug.
So last night I updated my computer to the latest operating system “Mojave” and therefore another desert image seemed appropriate.
Sunset at Wahiba Sands desert in Oman. Half an hour before sunset there was no wind and bright sunshine. At sunset, the wind picked up and the sands on the desert floor swirled around our feet. It was not the sunset I was hoping for, but I am happy with this shot that sort of reminds me of a picture my parents have on their wall of elephants in Africa. The colours are similarly muted. It may be the shape of the trees. Anyway, here it is. I hope you like it. Pictures of camels and sand dunes may follow.
This weekend we spent a day on the Gower in South Wales. This is Worm’s Head in Rhossili. It can be reached when the tide is out along a quite “awkward to walk over” causeway.
One of the most amazing trips I’ve been lucky enough to go on was to New Zealand over Christmas and New Year in 2013/14. Towards the end of our trip we went on a boat trip on Milford Sound. We had great weather on the first day, kayaking and swimming from the boat. Taking pictures of the waterfalls that cascade down the sides of the fjords. The next morning we woke up to mist and rain and fog. A totally different experience.
I shot this image in 2007 one during an extended work break in Vancouver. We had a good meal in some bar & grill place. I dusted it off for a Getty stock call but the image. I found out that I used to shoot in JPEG (not RAW) and it’s a little soft and therefore not up to get over the Getty quality bar, but I quite like it nevertheless.
We spent a lovely day walking from our cool AirBnB in Hell’s Kitchen to walk the High Line and the from there to the World Trade Centre, City Hall and then we found ourselves at the Brooklyn Bridge. You can’t shoot it without hundreds of people in the shot, so I just went with the flow.
