The Perfect Shooting Position

It is gratifying to see one’s camera techniques being copied by others. Like this young lady who has obviously seen me work, as she is adopting one of my favourite shooting positions. Although I must admit I have not been able to get into this one for a few years now!!

How Time Flies

My youngest son, Johnny or JP, is 21 today!! My goodness how quick kids grow up. It seems only a year or two ago when he would come and sit on my knee for a cuddle. Good job he doesn’t now as he’s over 6ft. Happy 21st Son!!

‘They Don’t Make Them Like They Used To’

Well that’s how the old catchphrase goes, and its so true in many respects. HMS Dauntless, the new Type 45 destroyer, is in Liverpool this week for the Mersey River Festival.

It is usually served as an appetizer, sliced thinly and accompanied by hovmästarsås, a dill and mustard sauce. Well this stall had four subtley different…

A Right Royal Visit

It was glorious and sunny in Liverpool today as the Cunard liner MS Queen Victoria was docked in the city for two days. With wonderful views from the Wirral of the ship against the famous Liverpool waterfront. I took this shot of a young Liverpool FC supporter watching the magnificent liner. On days like this…

Helsinki – a priceless city?

Just returned from 3 days working in Finland’s capital, Helsinki. An attractive city with a beautiful cathedral and some very fine Art Nouveau/Jugend buildings, plus stunning vistas of scattered islands and islets on the Gulf of Finland. Only one drawback – €14 for a glass of wine in a restaurant, €8.50 for a small bottle of water…
