Another day in Brexistan

The scenes outside Parliament continue to fascinate me, and on a nice day it’s tempting to continue my daily walk round Dulwich and carry on another 4-5km into central London, or I’ll just catch the bus up to Westminster and spend an hour or two there. This was a Wednesday, usually more busy thanks to […]

Brexit

Beginning in Hyde Park, the march concluded with a rally in Parliament Square. No Confidence vote On Dec 12, 2018 Theresa May faced a No Confidence vote called […]

Brexistan

The video does have a few rough edges, but I hope it gives a good impression of the scenes outside Parliament every day. It’s a combination of stills taken on my Fuji X-T2 and video from my iPhone.

2017 has been and gone

I knew I was struggling to keep the blog going, but I just realized that I hadn’t made a single “real” post in the whole of 2017! I am still alive, I do tweet, quite often, I still help people in forums, occasionally exchange harsh words too, and Facebook a little too, which I am […]

New Lightroom plugin – X-LR

Author

I’ve written about 10 books on digital photography, the latest two published in 2014, but I didn’t begin as a photographer or even as a graphic artist. I had been a “spreadsheet warrior” and photography was just a hobby, but working for Heidelberg in the graphics industry I been familiar with Photoshop from about 1990. […]
