The Great Copyright Infringement Debacle

I grew up in the brewing town of Tadcaster in North Yorkshire and was therefore greatly saddened by the damage to the fine old bridge over the River Wharfe caused by the recent flooding which hit the national news.  I’ve therefore been following related stories about Tadcaster quite closely recently and was pleased to see […]

Ornate Glass Roof at The County Arcade in the Victoria Quarter, Leeds, West Yorkshire, England

Last Week’s Shoot – Leeds Arcades

It’s been a while since I did any city photography in the centre of Leeds and a few things have changed so I decided to head back there with the trusty OM-D and update my collection.

Twigs against a Tree and Bluebells in Middleton Woods

Stones at The Druids Temple

Last Week’s Shoot – Devils and Druids

As most of last week was taken up with rebuilding a laptop due to a disk failure I didn’t get as much photography done as I had hoped, but managed to visit two locations in Yorkshire that I’ve never been to, in the same afternoon, which was nice! The first stop was at Boroughbridge to […]

Brown Free Range Egg and Tablespoon in a Glass Bowl

Last Week’s Shoot – Food!

With a biting wind outside I was looking for something close to home to shoot last week and eventually settled for possibly the easiest location – my kitchen!  Nice and warm and with easy access to the kettle for a cup of tea…   I have covered food subjects before, though I’m not that interested […]
