The Scottish Highlands

We’ve been on holiday for a week up in the Scottish highlands. Over the week we have covered about 1200 miles and seen far too many things. Funnily enough given the terrible weather in England over the last week we had a lot of sun which was not what we expected. I’ll write some more […]


We went to see Dave Dobbyn play in Koko, Camden last night. It was an excellent night of popular music and mass sing-a-long. We managed to get to the front of the stage and were joined by Jim, Emma and Ollie. It’s always good to see New Zealand music well received in London. Dave Dobbyn […]

The Evening Standard

Today was the day where I got to visit the Evening Standard picture desk and see how they work. Over the course of the day I met the picture editor, had the ins and outs of picture sourcing, editing and placement explained and got to go out with one of the photographers on a couple […]

Jim’s Feijoa

We had dinner with Jim and Emma last Thursday evening and afterwards we took Jim’s precious Feijoa home to plant-sit while he and Emma head off to France for the week. You can read more about the Feijoa on Wikipedia – I didn’t know that the plant is named after a Brazilian Botanist. Here is […]


Weather wise it has been a lovely weekend. Both Saturday and today have been warm with blue skies and a light breeze blowing through making sure that walking isn’t as hot as it could be. Yesterday we went for a walk in the afternoon that took us through areas of Brentwood we hadn’t explored before. […]

A long weekend

A week ago was the last May bank holiday weekend and we had a busy time in London. On Saturday we went for a bit of a walk and visited the Tate Modern which was in the midst of a long weekend festival. We happened to time our arrival with a piece of performance art […]

Art on the Southbank & Kate Walsh

We had an arty evening yesterday. I finished work around 4pm and met Keryn outside Embankment station. Having found each other we made our way to the Southbank and found the entrance for the Hayward Gallery. For the next few months the Hayward is displaying work commissioned from Antony Gormley, the man who created the […]

Clean out

As previously mentioned Steve is now engaged to Wendy. This means Steve has to put an end to his bachelor lifestyle and tidy up at home so we volunteered to help Kathy and Sharon with a Sunday clean out of Steve’s boxed stuff. So Sunday just gone was spent at Steve’s place helping him sort […]

They rang last week

And the photo looks better in the paper. Ben called me and asked me a few questions which resulted in this article which appeared in the Brentwood Gazette this week: Eye for a Photo, The Brentwood Gazette. Just in case anyone thinks I’m obsessing it’s more that we haven’t really done a lot recently so […]


Another day another page with details of my winning. Interesting to see a quote from myself on this page, interesting as I never said it. I was contacted by a person from the Brentwood post yesterday so I guess there will be something in an upcoming paper. Here is a link to to the DPNow […]

The news part one

Still no update on the official pages but here is the win reported on a photography magazine website: Amateur Photography Magazine

Well, I won didn’t I

Good news! I won the London Eye photo competition! For my efforts I received a Fujifilm digital camera, a big magnum of champagne and a years family pass to Tussauds Group venues. Reading up on some other sites (like the Lets Go Digital site here) it appears that my photo will go on permanent display […]
