I have recently revisited some old files, scans of film shot with my beloved Canon AE-1. It mades me realise how few pictures I was taking at the time compared with the digital era and the importance of scanning my old films, as this medium is rather fragile...

Two years ago I was back from a trip to Thailand. Considering the current events in Thailand and the unrest blocking the International airports in bangkok, If I'd gone at the ame period this year, I would have benefited from extended holidays...
Thailand is a truly beautiful country, well worth a visit at least...

I went to Berlin two week ends ago, and I mischievously took photos that represented pre-conceived ideas about Germany. Although I stayed in Kreuzberg in Berlin which is very different to the rest of Germany, I wanted to capture some photos that represent a common view of Germany. Note the cleanliness, the 'No-frills' look, the rucksack, the clock to remind you of punctuality...
You can make your photos say anything. That's the magic of photography...

Even though most of this summer has been cold and wet, the weather was magnificent on the weekend when the Urbanmoves Festival took place. One performance involved the dancers moving from the stage into Piccadilly Gardens fountain. As soon as they reached the fountain, the waterjet started, and all the kids joined them, screaming and jumping everywhere....

Another great concert of Lee, with Colin joining him with vocals and guitar. The concert was supposed to happen at Moho as part of the Hide and Seek festival but due to a mix up, the band was moved to Alter Ego.
Not all the fans could catch up with the last minute changes, and since the venue was out of the way of the festival, the audience ended up as friends and family. Lee and Colin gave an outstanding performance.

Piccadilly Gardens in Manchester is not the prettiest place in town, but it is a very popular spot for people to meet and soak up the little amount of sun that we get here at the moment. It is also providing children with a fountain of endless fun. The water jets appear, grow and vanish sometimes randomly, sometimes with a pattern. The parents watch their offspring and have dry clothes and towel ready for when the children come back to them exhausted and full of stories to tell as they start shivering...
What do you think she's watching?
