Come Rain or Shine (Scenes from the Notting Hill Carnival) (13/12/13)

Better late than never... Well that's what they say.
It was the second year running that I had seriously photographed the carnival this year. And there is no better time to look at the photos than now, during the cold days of winter when you're missing that carnival warmth and spice!

This year I took along two cameras to ensure I don't miss a shot while I change lenses. I used the Olympus OM-D EM-5 plus a number of different lenses and my pocket rocket, the Ricoh GR.

The photos in this post were taken using the Ricoh GR

...and you know the show goes on Come Rain or Shine...

London: Snapshots of a City (28/10/2013)

Some followers have requested that I post on Google+ as it's easier to view the photos and is more accessible to them. Although I understand where they are coming from and value their time and input, please also consider other viewers of the blog who do not use Google+. I normally post on blogger and link to the main blog on Google+ and Twitter. Hopefully this covers both sets of viewers from those social media sites while allowing those who do not use either of those networks to view my work.

Thanks for your understanding and ongoing support.

Continuing on with my new set of snapshots in London. All photos shot on the Ricoh GR.

London: Snapshots of a City (18/10/2013)

I've started a new set of snapshots in London with a new camera. I've now had the Ricoh GR for a few months and am finally starting to post some of the photos taken with this little gem. I may even do a review of the GR if there is enough interest.
This ongoing series is a collection of casual snapshots of everyday London during my day to day activities.
