Before I hit the streets I am often a revolving mix of anxious, nervous and excited. It is a feeling that never seems to leave me but if I think that at any point those emotions have prevented from taking a photo (and they have in the past!) I make myself work the area, scene or space until the feeling subsides, usually yielding some Read the rest of this entry »

 Hi and welcome.

After writing about my experiences while on holiday I thought I would give a little run down on the equipment I used. This post will touch on a bit of how I work and a bit on the equipment used. My take, my look. It may not be a spec heavy, in-depth detailed review but it is my own, user experience. It gets a bit gushy at the end. All thoughts and comments are welcome.

I have never really had an issue of what camera to take with me anywhere I go. I have really only owned one camera or two at any one time. There was a point, about 4-5 years ago, where I had 3 different systems but early 2011 I sold everything and bought A Fuji X100. For me that is when my photography really changed. That Read the rest of this entry »

“Don’t worry, I blend in. I speaka’da lingo. I got it”. That was my statement all holiday. Any situation could arise and I would respond with this idiot’s announcement. A testimony of utter nonsense. I don’t blend in anywhere and, as Stef liked to point out, “yeah, no one actually says lingo Read the rest of this entry »

If I could have been anything in a world of endless possibilities I would have been a space cowboy. A free roamer, final frontier explorer out on the wild fringes of the vast, expansive darkness being guided only by the stars. Seeking every adventure that may wait and sleeping under new stairs whenever the time Read the rest of this entry »

Boss and Stef have been friends for years, longer than years, and it is a tight bond that will last long after the last bombs have been dropped. They can talk to each other about everything, without saying anything and its only getting stronger. One cementing block of their friendship is Harry Potter. They are Read the rest of this entry »

Moving between the Disney parks was fairly easy. You just jump on a Disney bus and go. Getting to the parks was a little harder. Universal had proven simple, you book a ticket at hotel reception the night before and away you go the next morning but with Disney we decided to Uber.

It was night, Read the rest of this entry »

“Boi, looks like the suns kickn’ yo ass!”. The sign spinner couldn’t help but laugh at the state of me. I liked him. Honesty in interaction, with no malice in delivery, is a wonderful thing.

He wasn’t wrong either. Not even midday and I was feeling the heat. Being a ghostly, paler-shade-of-white Read the rest of this entry »

At night, a few of the parks put on a firework display. As a gang we watched a few, not every night, just on a few occasions. At night the parks are lit up with neon’s of all colours. Glowing with an ever brightening intensity, surely visible from space. I liked the transition.

The rumor is Read the rest of this entry »

The noise of the air-con is what I passed out to most nights. It sounded like a wood-chipper churning out lumps of frosty cold air. The heat never let up, constant and all-consuming. The sleep would have been fine, sleep rarely escapes me, but the mites where everywhere.

‘That’s it! I’m not staying in Read the rest of this entry »

Look what we have here before us’ Cyrus’s speech echoes round my head.

Families covered in colours. ‘He’s my Micky, I’m her Minnie’, ‘Family Robinson on Vacation 2016’, ‘Jesus Loves You’ (combined with other bible quotes). All Like delegates from gangs, all ready to march on the next ride, all ready to cut anyone that Read the rest of this entry »
