HORSE AND JOCKEY - capturing the light

This is the Horse and Jockey in Darlaston. I was asked to photograph it after it had been repainted. It was winter and dark days, so I had to wait for some light. The best time when the sun was on it would be in the morning. Read the rest of this page »

Culture and nostalgia #life

I live in the Black Country where the humour is self deprecating and there is a tendency for us to underestimate ourselves rather than overestimate. There is a tendency too, towards straight talking without fine words or embellishments. There is a rich Anglo Saxon culture and a dialect to match. Read the rest of this page »

Safe harbours? #investments

Boer War Staffords

I went to West Bromwich Manor House on Sunday to photograph an American Civil War re-enactment by the Anglo-Boer War Staffords. It’s obviously an event with lots of action and opportunities for good photos. Read the rest of this page »

Uniform history affecting our lives #life


I went to West Bromwich Manor House yesterday to photograph an American Civil  war re-enactment. Not really history that I can identify with, but still interesting. History shapes society and gives us our culture. Read the rest of this page »

Politics and #investments #GE2015

The stock market has been a little rocky as investors wonder how the general election result will affect their investments. The minimum wage might go up and put a strain on those companies that have a lot of low paid staff. However, many of those companies will benefit from increased sales. Read the rest of this page »

Tipton Cut #Tipton #Photography

Black Country (52)

The Black Country has miles of canals. These water filled channels, cut through the Black Country in the 18th century provided a means of transport at the beginning of the industrial revolution. Now they are used for recreational purposes and by narrowboats traders. Read the rest of this page »

Political uncertainty #investments


The London stock market still looks shaky this week with political uncertainty making traders and investors nervous.  I’m old enough to remember a few governments and so although cautious, I’m not too worried. Last week, I lost about 2% on my portfolio, but gained this week. Read the rest of this page »
