Garden Gates

Walking back from the centre of town this afternoon I walked down some really varied and pretty streets. It strikes me how different Bristol is from Manchester. For starters there are these horrible things called hills (living in Cambridge and then Manchester, hills are something of an oddity). But the city is also much greener, the houses and buildings are much more varied and individual and the whole places just seems to have more individuality and soul (apologies to any Mancunians reading this...) and I'm really looking forward to settling here permanently...

A Year through the Viewfinder

So today is my 22nd birthday and I've decided to set myself a new challenge: to take and post one photograph per day for a year. This will all be posted in my new blog:

So take a look, enjoy and let me know what you think...

Cabot Circus - Phone Pictures

I got a new phone this weekend and took the opportunity to test the camera in it in Cabot Circus. I'm pleasantly surprised by the results - not razor sharp but still passable and much better than my old phone.

Bumble Bees etc.

Some more pictures taken when I was down in Cambridge and borrowing Dad's macro lens. If anyone knows what the insect which looks like a bee but has fly eyes is, please let me know because it's really bugging me!

A book to accompany my part of the Grantchester exhibition is now available from, see the preview below for a taste. It includes some pictures from the exhibition, but also a lot that won't be on display.

The exhibition will be open the 2nd and 3rd of July from 10am to 5pm in the Village Hall (off the High St). Free entry, plenty of tea, coffee and cake throughout the weekend.

Cambridge Botanic Gardens

Apologies for the lack of postings recently, it's exam time again (for the last time ever!) so time to take and edit photos has been in short supply. However, here are a few taken at the Cambridge University Botanic Gardens while I was back home briefly last weekend. My last exam (ever) is tomorrow so soon there will be more time for photography in my life.
