Safe House

Safe House

The journey continues with my Americans Abroad project (an off shoot of my Exploring the Automobile series). This car (I believe its an Oldsmobile - will stand corrected) was photographed in St Leonards. The scene made me think of an episode of the Sopranos or similar. I love scenes like this when I come across them, and in fact get quite excited, as I find it so surreal and love the sense of Americana it evokes here in the UK.

This portrait was taken on a workshop I did with renowned street photographer Antonio Olmos. This was taken in Brighton, on the flea market held off the Laines in Brighton. This also forms part of my environmental series of photographs, and is part street portrait too.

Photograph of a 'Boss' Harley Davidson taken in Palma de Mallorca last year. I like how the figure on the right appears to be scampering away.

This photo was taken a few years ago now at the annual Magnificent Motors show in Eastbourne.  Part of an ongoing project, well actually crossing over two projects really "Environmental Portraits" and "Man and Machine" (more details on my website). These guys are part of the Eastbourne Miniature Steam Railway, and appear at most local events, and are always popular with kids and parents alike.  Incredible that each of these miniature locomotives are completely hand built.

Taken in Palma de Mallorca. I love photographing Vespa style scooters, as they have such a timeless quality to them that never seems to grow old. In this phonograph I also really like all the contrasty areas of shade and sunshine. If I say so myself, I think I have handled the exposure pretty well here with a nice balanced feel to the image complimenting the composition.

A quintessential Brighton scene, Vesta Scooter, Seaside attraction. Fish and Chips with Mushy peas, Bank Holiday Mondays, booze and punch ups, Mods and Rockers, a timeless vista, the past reaching forwards and the present backwards, here we are now, whats changed, not a lot probably. 



Just Passing Through

Here is the second image from my Birmingham City centre series. This was me planting my camera and tripod in the middle of the path and shooting. I was drawn by the atmosphere, the contrast of the wooden Christmas market huts, the architecture of the war memorial and library in the back ground. It was only when I got home to process did I fully realise that the big Ferris behind the War Memorial appeared like a large moon or planet rising on the horizon, creating this surreal Sci-Fi feeling to the shot.  I am very pleased with how this image has worked out. Also needs to be noted that this image is number 2000 on my Flickr stream.

The second photograph in my black & white / monochrome series taken in and around the alleys and back streets of the old town of Palma de Mallorca. The sense of of mood and atmosphere is so tangible when you are there, that it seems you can almost touch and taste it. 

A reminder that you can view more of night photography on my website here:


Night Bug

Latest photography posted on my Flickr Photo Stream

Taken last Easter in Palma de Mallorca. I was out exploring the old town  for some night photography street scenes, when I cam across this immaculately kept beetle parked up in a small square. As you can tell by closer inspection, this is a rather tasty looking bug, especially when you look at the size of its tyre's. Body work was in perfect condition. In  this composition, I really like how the rounded shapes of the Beetle blend into the square and rectangle shapes of the buildings just out of focus in the back ground. 

How about a cup of shut the ....

Photographs of Stuart Williams immaculately restored Reliant Scimitar and also a portrait of Stuart himself. Stuart and Keith Parrington from XJ Restorations spent a considerable amount of time and energy restoring this car to its current state, and I think the results speak for themselves.  This car looks stunning and sounds like a beast, perfect waking up the neighbors on a Sunday morning and the surrounding countryside for that matter!.
