My father was a sign writer, pushed out by the introduction of cheap plastic signage and I’ve been known to wield his brushes for a few choice establishments. This wall, believed to of been painted in the 1930’s, is in Bitterne, Southampton, UK.

Heritage Photo Walks ~ Southampton, Hampshire, UK

Here’s a little sneaky peek of some of the photographs made on my latest Heritage Photo Walk of the medieval walled city of Southampton. My home town, the infamous cruise liner the Titanic sailed from Southampton, well before I was born I hasten to add…

You can find out more information about my upcoming Heritage walks at the fb page Southampton Photo Walks or if you would like a customised booking to explore Southampton and the beautiful surrounding areas of Winchester, or the stone circles Avebury and Stonehenge drop me a line via the contact form. Private transport and visits to the very best historic public houses for fine foods and refreshment can be happily arranged also!

Meeting the Mekong – 11 – Cambodia

Patience ~ Kampong Cham
Patience ~ Kampong Cham

I was thigh deep in the warm waters of a Mekong tributary, it was approaching sunset and the red dust in the air creates a beautiful soft light in Cambodia at certain times of the day. The fisherman had cast his net and then sat, still, watching the river water approaching and waiting for the next school of fish to come through.

This series is an ode to the people who work on the dam threatened Mekong River and all associated tributaries that bring life, or death, to the people, flora and fauna who live near the river in the Tibetan plateaus, Mayanmar, China, Laos, Vietnam and Cambodia. The Mekong is the most bio-diverse freshwater river on our planet.

This series is an ode to the people who work on the dam and drought threatened Mekong River and all associated tributaries that bring life, or death, to the people, flora and fauna who live near the river in the Tibetan plateaus, Mayanmar, China, Laos, Vietnam and Cambodia. The Mekong is the most bio-diverse freshwater river, more so than the Amazon, on our planet.

The Teuk Chhou river in Kampot is part sea and part freshwater and right at the bottom of the Mekong Delta region, fed partly by the Mekong river and partly by a source originating in the Cardamon Mountain range.
This photograph was made at sunrise at the side of the river where the night fishing boats come in. The local market stall holders arrive to buy the freshest fish, the atmosphere is exciting, the light stunning and people full of character. If you go find the lady who sells the donuts.

Reservoir Tower – Elan Valley, Wales, UK.

I’ve been falling for gothic reservoirs and teaching photography in the Elan Valley in the wilds of Wales, UK. The Welsh landscape is beautifully inspiring in all weathers, the overcast day featured in the photographs below really highlighted the colours of the copper reservoir tower and the wide rolling hills of burnt ferns and heathers in the mist.
