 It's a day out. We'd both had a long, busy, physically demanding day on the Saturday, and so we decided on the Sunday, as you do, to do a 9.8 mile walk from Ramsgate to Margate following the clifftop path. It sounds worse than it is, and the idea was that a walk was b...

'"When I grow rich" say the bells of Shoreditch'. Well, the London rhyme has been around since at least the 18th Century and still Shoreditch marks a spot where the wealth of the City of London meets the poorer area of the East End.

Street photography really isn't my scene. It's not that I dislike it as a medium; in fact I admire those photographers who embrace it and produce excellent work. I just find it hard. I get a bit embarrassed at what I feel is sticking my camera's lens into the life, if...

I'm not particularly good at this 'blogging game'. Part of it is that I don't have a plethora of work I want to put 'out there' in a blog format (I don't even have a plethora of work to put out in any format). The next is that I don't really have a great deal to say ab...

This is a bit of a follow up from yesterday's post about the foggy morning we have been having recently on the Medway.  The fog photographs were taken a bit after 9am and it wasn't possible to see from one side of the river to the other.  From Rochester castle it wasn'...

Being on a river, Rochester gets its fair share of misty and foggy days, particularly in the autumn but also in the spring. Normally the fog is burning off by 8am but the past few mornings have been particularly foggy until past 10am, and it's been so thick that visibi...
