December 2011

'Tis the Season
Every where we look we see the holiday season around us.  
The lights are lit, decorations are hung, 
and the air is alive with the sounds of the season.
Enjoy the wonders around you 
where ever you are this holiday season!
Happy Holidays 
and Best Wishes for the New Year!!

Oxford Street
Regent Street
The lights of the city are a blaze especially in Hyde Park at the Winter Wonderland.  
Tonight was a great night at the park -- mild temps and the crowds weren't bad either.   
If you are in the area and haven't been able to test out the rides make the time to give it a whirl.
The rides are great fun :)
I must note, the three pics below were taken with my Canon point and shoot. 
My main purpose was to go on a few rides so no DSLR this time!

November 2011 (continued....)

On the road 
(or river as the case may be)
This much delayed post (due to travel and lack of internet 
connections) contains photos from Florida, USA.  
A bit of variety and swing back to nature and wildlife -- a subject
I really enjoy and a contrast to the city shots.

November 2011

A day out at a Vintage Car Show recently offered 
some interesting characters 
in addition to the amazing automobiles from
the turn of the century - 1900 style.
(A few images of the vehicles will follow in the coming days)

And, of course, the focus of the Vintage Car show....
The Cars
Loved the detail of these amazingly restored 1900's automobiles.
Unique designs, nice lines, and lots of shine.  Enjoy!

Week of 23 October 2011

London Photo Festival

Busy this week getting ready for the London Photo Festival
where I'll be exhibiting two photos along with approximately 30 London artists.
As I get more serious about my photography, events such as this
exhibit offer an opportunity to expand my knowledge 
on the subject and meet new people with similar interests.

If you are in London later this week and have an interest in photography
join me at the 
London Photo Festival
28-29 October 2011
10 am - 7 pm
The Crypt
Boroughs High Street
The Inaugural London Photo Festival is complete
and was a great success.  This was my first foray participating
in a photo exhibit in London.  The venue at The Crypt
worked out wonderfully.  The Private Viewing on Thursday night
was well attended and there was a steady flow of visitors
during the open exhibit.
Thanks to all my friends for your support this week!
A congrats goes out to my friend and fellow exhibitor Nicola Albon.  
Nicola won 1st Runner Up to Best in Show.
My contributions to the exhibit included wildlife and people
from my Africa/Safari Collection.  Enjoy!

Week of 16 October 2011

Street Art
Like tattoo artists, there are some extremely talented street artists.  
A friend posted a great street art image on his phototrivia blog and it reminded
me of some street art shots taken this summer so this week is focused on good street art.  
Love gaining inspiration for postings from other blogs - Thanks, Mike!

more to come as the week goes on......

and a few more....

All of the above were taken on a visit to Brighton Beach earlier this year.
They definitely have some awesome street artists!

Spring in Fall...
I've been on the road and am not caught so I've dug into the archives for a few images 
for this weeks post.  The theme this week is British Gardens and the 
images are from West Sussex, England.

Week of 2 October 2011

Rolling on...
Commuting to work in the city can be achieved by car, bus, taxi, metro, or bike.  
This week provides a look at some of the brave folks that risk life and limb
to commute by bike in busy city traffic.
If you are driving to work and there are cyclist commuting with you,
be sure to keep an eye out for them.

Week of 25 September 2011 (cont.)

Artist behind the Body Art....
at the International Tattoo Convention.
A salute to the art of the tattoo wouldn't be complete without a few images
of the artist themselves in the act of creating their masterpieces.
