Best of 2018

TweetI realise I’ve done my usual 12 that I liked the most from the year. But I wanted a mulligan. A do over. A bit late, but such is life. Nor is it just twelve. Overall, I took a lot of photos I like. A mixture of digital and film again. Lots from the Leica Q and the M6. Many… Read more →

Bikepacking Wales

TweetSix months of waiting. Six months of hoping for good weather. Six months of wondering if any one of us would pull the plug and ruin it all. Paddy Englishman, Paddy Irishman and Paddy Australianman walk into a pub in Wales. It’s cold. Wet. Windy. They’ve sacked off a climb to sleep in a field and get some hot food.… Read more →

May in Pictures

TweetSummer arrived with a thud. Suddenly, summer. Nearly four months solid of it. The first two weeks of solid summer I’ve ever had in Scotland. Good light – either crisp spring or forceful summer – gets the camera out and keeps it out. First month I’ve shot over 300 images in a long time. I don’t do burst images. Hangover… Read more →

February in Photos

TweetOn time, not a chance. Go me. Crap weather, a lot of time indoors, crap light and too much going on to get the camera out much. Tiny human still not dead – parenting success at its best. First month I’ve not had a cold, but some other disease made me spend too much time on the porcelain throne for… Read more →

Favourite Photos of 2017

TweetOne image for each month. Each image, I feel, defined that month. Jan – Sony a7: Spring in Manchester.

8mm

TweetLast year, with local rider and Super8 obsessed friend Giles, we went out and made a film for a competition. A film on film, not digital. A single Super8 cartridge shot with no room for editing. What was shot was what was to be entered, undeveloped, unseen by Giles. It was a fun day, 5 hours to shoot 3.5 minutes… Read more →

2016 Wrap.

TweetOdd year. A year of two distinct halves. Part 1: January through June we’re dominated by the one thing, the Tour Divide. Nothing else mattered. Work, nope. Friends, nope. Family, nope. Home…well yes, the only thing that mattered except training was homelife and future plans. Oddly, this near sole focus had little impact on the rest of my “normal” outside… Read more →
