A Walk In The Woods

A Walk In The Woods

As I mentioned in the last post, I have taken to doing a bit of walking since coming back from holiday. Well, I’ve managed to live in Brampton for some thirty three years and yet never been to the Ridge Wood between Brampton and Lannercost. I took a walk, along with my Wife Sue, out […]

Sun, Sea and Small Sensors

It has been a busy time since my last post. My business arm, Four Counties Photography has been very busy with our “Cadet” photography, creating photo packs for youth organisations.

The Long Good Friday Part 4 – Epilogue

Last visit of the day was to the church of St Mary’s at Cumwhitton. I was met at the entrance to the village by a rare sight these days, a traditional red British telephone box. These used to be a common sight throughout the UK but now they tend to be (ab)used by banks for […]

The Long Good Friday (hey, there could be a film in this)

Second on my Good Friday visits was to All Saints church in the little village of Calthwaite. Just a short journey down the road from Hesket and under the M6 motorway, we go by the main West Coast rail line and across the river. I have played and sung (I’m a singer in another life) […]

24 Hours and the ‘M43’

It’s funny how only 24 hours can make a huge difference. My last post, although posted a week ago, was shot only 24 hours before these images. In fact only 24 hours before the next few blogs as I went out and had a mega shooting day so I have split it into several blog […]

Bins and Cones (or a load of Bollards!)

“It’s easy for you. You live in one of the best parts of the world for this sort of stuff” He said. ‘He’ being a photographer friend of mine from London. “It’s on your doorstep man. You just get your camera out and click….easy shot” “Really?” I said. He had a point though. I do […]
