Tea in a Coffee Shop

Power Pole

I never leave the house without my camera, always wear comfortable shoes and when on the street I look around and take as many photographs as I can.

Holding on

High energy Colombian circus company ‘Circolombia’ amazed everyone this last February here in Blackpool and I was lucky enough to have a ringside seat.  Aerialists Oscar Rojas and Soledad Gomez had the audience holding its breath as they coiled around a single rope and each other in a sexy carefully choreographed tangle of muscle andContinue reading “Holding on”

Dress Code

With the right advertising and in the right setting an everyday ordinary object such as a coat hanger can become an extraordinary piece of art. Found while out on the streets of London…how could I resist? In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “(Extra)ordinary.”
