A couple of weeks ago was London Pride. Despite my reservations about some elements I really do enjoy Pride. I’ve uploaded a slideshow and gallery of some of my photos.

There are more Pride photos on Pride’s flickr and iamsoho (1) and (2).

Photoblog: King’s Cross, the other side

29 April 2010

Last weekend I visited some of the King’s Cross Reveal Festival. I didn’t have many chances to take photos but I thought I should blog some of my photos: the other side of King’s Cross.

Camley Street Natural Park is one of the most unusual and unexpected finds in London. A miniature wildlife oasis in the heart of one of London’s largest regeneration projects – an area historically associated with deprivation and prostitution that it now London’s gateway to Europe. The famous King’s Cross gasholders – a landmark in their own right with a history and a future – remain a part of the area’s landscape. And London’s famous Brunswick Centre

London Dusk

21 March 2010

Spring started in London this week. by the end of the week, of course, it was hiding behind clouds again. But on Wednesday night I was walking in central London at dusk. it has to be the magical hour in London. The one that makesthe city looks it’s most mystical, etherial and beautiful. Here’s some photos taken on my iPhone:

I decided it was time to post some of the random photos I have taken out and about on my mobile phone. These are all from London over the last year.

Saturday Afternoon, South Camden (PhotoBlog)

21 February 2009

After the fun and enjoyment of a Shoreditchy night out at Kill Your Pets and Trailertrash I needed a more relaxed Saturday. This involved wandering around the southern end of Camden Town, mostly, after a strong coffee at the Market (so strong the spoon stood up in it: see the picture).

Chester Terrace. I like the attention to detail – there’s a full stop after the word Terrace

London Snow Blog: My Snowday in Pictures

2 February 2009

Well, I say snow day – I actually went to work. So did the people at the Guardian (apparently) who have brought us SNOW BLOG LIVE (really) all day long… including useful advice, such as how to walk in snow (like a penguin in case you wondered)

Here’s my day in photos, more here:

London Snow Blog: Snowman on Millbank

2 February 2009

Following Snow Blogs last night and this morning and the snow hysteria in the city I made my way into work this morning. At lunchtime I had to venture across Millbank to get lunch where this quite impressive snowman watched me slip-sliding along the pavement to get something warm to aet. I’ve never seen snow this thick in London before, just a few minute away from the Palace of Westminster and right next to the Thames…


London Snow Blog: The Morning After!

2 February 2009

Following last night’s post we’ve had the heaviest snow in decades overnight. I think the last time it snowed this year Bob Cratchit lived round the corner…

Here’s what I woke up to…



London Snow Blog!

1 February 2009

It’s very rare that you get snow sticking in London. The last time I recall snow sticking was 2001, on Vauxhall Bridge Road (ironically when I last worked at the place I returned to as my ‘new job’ last week)…

These photos were taken just a few moments ago, hopefully before the snow disappears once rush hour in Camden begins…
