PhotoSweeper – A duplicate photograph Finder

These days with the facilities that we have with our super duper cameras we can quite quickly fill up hard drives upon hard drives with our photographs. It could be that you are using the setting on the camera to take multiple shots in order to help you catch the action. Maybe you do like I do, where you take bracketed shots so that you can do HDR photos and Read More …

A visit to Ireland – Family, Photography and Culture

The trip to Ireland to see the family I’ve just had a surprisingly good trip to Ireland to visit my family over there in the emerald isle. Two of my sons live over there permanently and the other one who is living in Dubai was also back for a week. Absolutely fantastic to be able to see all of the three lads in the same place and we even had Read More …

Rusty Grungy Winchy

A lovely day for taking photos at Castel Beach There are lots of really nice beaches very close to where I live and today the sun was out and there was not a cloud in the sky. It was a perfect day to go out and take some photos at the beach. We went to a beach which is just north of Palomós called Castel Beach. It seems that lots Read More …

Taking photos in Platja d'Aro

As you might expect with me having a new camera I am out taking quite a lot of photographs at the moment. Yesterday I went to the nearest coastal town to record some video, I did a timelapse video and also a straightforward video with the beach and the sea in the background. With the video I shot that was the time lapse it would have been handy if there Read More …

The fishermen's flags waving in the harbour

The fishermen’s flags Were being blown around by the wind today in the harbour of St. Feliu de Guixols. The flags are looking in the bit ragged like they have seen better days, but that doesn’t matter as they don’t have to look fancy to do the job. On the pier where these flags were there were hobby fishermen too, sitting there with their rods dangling lines into the water. Read More …

A trip to Barcelona

Expecting to have a trip to Barcelona on Saturday to celebrate 11 years with my wife. Hoping to spend some time taking photos and seeing a few things I haven’t seen before. For example I have not been inside La Sagrada Familia. This time of year could be a good time to visit if there will be fewer tourists around. Then again there could be the magic man in the Read More …

Big Rock on the beach at Platja d'Aro

Photography – An Image Created Rather Than Just Snapping Pictures It was the perfect day to go out and take a photo on the beach at the time of the year when it was not going to be full of oiled, bronzed bodies soaking up the sun. I was very pleased to see that there were some clouds in the sky as so often when you go to the beach Read More …

Railway track equipment in Haapsalu, Estonia

Changing direction with metal levers and gears. Isn’t great the way that nature takes over where engineering and great big lumps of steaming metal had precedence over the countryside. This is in Haapsalu in Estonia. The tracks don’t have trains running on them anymore but the levers for swapping a train from one track to another are still present.

Brutal Metal and pretty flowers

one of my favourite subject matters for photography is urban decay or industrial images. Here is a photo that I took on a visit to a mining museum in Northumberland in England. I really enjoyed walking around the place and seeing all of the great big lumps of mining machinery. Even when these things are not actually working they look so powerful and potent in terms of objects. It reminds Read More …

A day out in Banyoles taking photos

Along side the lake in Banyoles. A visit to Banyoles Banyoles is a lovely place to go and have a visit and there are days when you will be completely stunned by the colour of the water. I have seen the lake looking completely amazing with a really lively turquoise colour. The last time I went to visit I took my bicycle and enjoyed the small tracks that are available Read More …
