South Germany

Places I went to while visiting friends in February 2017. The pictures were taken with my Nikon F65 on Ilford XP2 400 film stock.


Goring & Streatley Regatta 2016

The Goring & Streatley Regatta has become a fairly regular event for me to meet up with old friends and laze about under a gazebo on the bank of the River Thames. However, on 16 July 2016, things turned out a bit differently: a couple of hours after my arrival, I handed my trusted Pentax K1000 over to my friend Zandy and climbed into a canoe. I was one of three people who deputised for three former teammates who couldn't do the afternoon race they were supposed to be in after they had, much to their surprise, won their race in the morning. Suffice to say that our spontaneously organised new team didn't win. However, I'm proud to say that we didn't fall into the Thames and didn't come last, finishing in an honourable 5th place out of 6 (or 7 if you add the team that failed to show up).


Bristol Naked Bike Ride 2016

On 4 June 2016, I joined in, for the seventh time, with the World Naked Bike Ride in Bristol. On this occasion I took pictures with my Nikon F65 35mm SLR using Kodak ColorPlus 200 film.


Grand Junction, Colorado

Following a picturesque train journey from Denver, I spent 26 May 2015 in Grand Junction, mostly walking along the Colorado River Trail. The pictures were taken with my Nikon F65 (fitted with the standard 28-80mm/f3.3-5.6 zoom lens) on Ilford PanF Plus 50 film stock.


Estes Park, Colorado

A friend's wedding brought me to Colorado in May 2015 where I stayed in Estes Park from the 21st to the 24th. With my Nikon F65 and some Kodak Ektar 100 film stock, I explored the area, including an aerial tramway trip up Prospect Mountain.


World Naked Bike Ride

The Bristol edition of the World Naked Bike Ride (WNBR) has been a regular feature for me since I first joined in at the end of the ride in 2010. The following year I was a running reporter with my Super 8 camera, as you can see from my short documentary on vimeo. Following two fairly chilly rides in 2012 and 2013, the weather was more inviting in 2014. The pictures here were taken with my Pentax K1000 on Ilford FP4 Plus 125 film.


Flood in Bradford on Avon

Since I moved to Bradford on Avon in autumn 2012, I experienced several floods. Here are some impressions. If you wish to see the effect the floods can have on the Quaker Meeting House, have a look at my video Streaming of a Wet Christmas.


Amman

The capital city Amman was my last stop during my two-week holiday in Jordan. On 27 November 2013, I explored the area from Downtown to the third circle with my camera.


Petra

On 23 November, my second full day at Petra, I walked to the Treasury, then up to the High Place of Sacrifice and via the Wadi Farasa to Petra's City Centre. Later I briefly explored a few other ruins, amongst them the Byzantine Church. All photos were taken on Ilford PanF Plus 50 black and white film.


Wadi Rum

On 20 November, my friend from Aqaba drove me to the outskirts of Wadi Rum. We spent scarcely half an hour there, leaving again shortly before sunset. During this time I took over 40 photographs with my Pentax K1000, using all three prime lenses I had brought with me.


Aqaba

In Aqaba, I stayed with friends at the Church of St Peter and St Paul from 17 to 21 November.


Madaba

Pictures taken on 15 November 2013 in Madaba, Jordan, on a roll of Kodak Ektar100 35mm film. This was my first full day in Jordan where I spent two weeks from 14 to 28 November 2013.


Narrowboat art

As part of the Bradford on Avon Arts Festival 2013, a boat decorating competition was held on 14 July. My personal favourite was the narrowboat Drover, owned by an artist who took great care in arranging her rooftop display. The photos were taken with my Pentax K1000 on Ilford FP4 Plus film.


Peto Garden at Iford Manor

Iford Manor is a favourite walking destination from my hometown of Bradford on Avon. It is famous for the Peto Garden, named after architect and garden designer Harold Peto (1854-1933) who created it in Italian Renaissance style when Iford Manor was his home in the early 20th century. The photos here were taken on 4 May 2013 on Kodak Ektar100 film stock.


Cross-border communication

An old picture postcard of Heidelberg's TV Tower, displayed outdoors against the backdrop of Bristol's Communication Tower. All photos were shot on Ilford XP2 Super 400 film stock with my Pentax K1000 fitted with a 135mm/f2.8 Vivitar lens.


Stills for the music video 'My Spectral Summer' (Jacques, a Robin)

On 27 November 2010 I took stills photographs for my first music video, using my Pentax K1000 with three different film stocks. The pictures were later combined with Standard 8 and Super 8 movie footage.
