Travel

I'm lucky enough to travel a lot but I also aim to understand a place in some depth. So I like to find out about the local history, sociology, wildlife and local arts. I prepare for a trip by looking up photos of the famous sights, they're usually a good guide both about the local visual interest and also a warning of what has already been done or over-done.
I try to use the tools of modern photojournalism and photography to communicate how I feel about a place. You’ll see that I have used Portrait, Street, Interior, Historical, Abstract, Landscape, Historical, Wildlife, Phone-camera and Selfie genres at different times for specific effects.

Sunday was still fine weather in Provence, whilst the rest of France (and much of Western Europe) had that violent weather. I met with another biker from the club and we enjoyed riding around the Alpilles, pretty little mountains that bridge between Provence and the Garrigues.

Last Saturday was a day trip to Devon and Somerset, where my brother has a small farm and family. We used the big trains to get to Tiverton Parkway

I had a good bike ride out to Norfolk yesterday; pleasant weather, not much pollen so nice to get to some clear roads here in the UK.

I've been in the Netherlands with my friend from Den Haag. We visited a hunting lodge and art museum in the forest, a classical concert in Rotterdam and yesterday a steam pump.

Terry and I visited Maurice (now retired from being the Fetters company) at his flat overlooking the seaside and then went for a short walk around Rottingdean village.
