Happy Independence Day 2012

Manhattan Skyline

Manhattan Skyline

In the many months since my last post, I’ve moved to the other side of the pond and am now privileged to call New York home. This is the view from a good friend’s apartment in Brooklyn – unbelievably the view will get even better in a few months when he moves to his new apartment in the adjoining building! Definitely looking forward to the housewarming in the new place…. and to taking the camera out to capture life in the US of A 🙂

stuck in customs photowalk

Since moving here nearly six years ago, rarely have I taken the time to seek out the colours concealed beneath the drab grey of a typical cloudy day in Londontown. One fine evening last September, a man who sees more through one eye than most people with two changed that. I, and about 75 other photogs, joined Trey Ratcliff (aka Stuck in Customs) on a photowalk along the Thames to shoot some of London’s most famous landmarks to render in eye-popping colour with the HDR technique Trey is famous for (drop by his site for a daily dose of gorgeousness and his free HDR tutorial).

Incidentally, I’m sure it was no accident that Trey led his big tripod-toting mob past the most zealous of the UK’s notoriously anti-photog security guards on the eve of Sept 11 – in fitting support of the I’m a Photographer, Not a Terrorist! campaign (ok, political rant over.)
