I just love old steam driven traction engines. I offer this up for your entertainment.
An afterthought with this shot…You spend a fortune on camera and glass,and turn the shot into a pencil drawing…I must be mad 😉

My other big pastime is cycling I took this on a visit to the Lee Valley Velodrome in London. I even got to cycle around it for an hour. One of the bucket list.

This image was made awhile ago and I just came across it. I was out shooting with an intern on assignment for the group of newspapers I worked for at the time as a Photo Editor. I was teaching this intern about light and how B&W can be such a powerful tool. This tree had white bark that could not be ignored. I had the Leica M-P 240 and the 50mm Summilux with me and worked on this composition knowing that I would convert to B&W since the only real color was the sky. The texture on the tree just popped once it was converted.
However I tried I couldn’t control the grain in this shot :0)

Waiting to fight. That’s what this guy was doing. I loved the detail in the chainmail in this shot. To my mind the people in the distance give a clue to the anticipation even though you can’t see this guys face.

One from this years local viking festival. I really love the amount of work that has gone into this carving.

What a lot of us do during the day. Small daily details that we miss.

One of those moments in the everyday that come to life when frozen in time. In this case 1/15th of a second. Blink and you would miss it. It’s a contradiction I know but the camera helps us see these magical moments. especially between people deep in conversation. That’s one of the things thats keeps me taking pictures.

The phone gets my daughters undivided attention while in a coffee shop. Still it gave me the chance to take this candid.
