The machine

The machine

I photographed the last days at Timken mill in Desford, England.

The milll there rolled hot steel for use in all manner of tubing.

I really could have taken a month shooting around the mill as the industrial setting was very conducive to dramatic photography.

Again this is an old shot. I had hoped to process something new but I ended up clearing out the garage instead (and maybe playing the odd game of Supreme Commander).

Mylan

Mylan

This is another photo from the archive and a real favourite with many people.

I never did find out if I spelt his name correctly but Mylan is the name of the little boy in the shot. He loved the camera and I think I remember his parents saying he had already been photographed professionally. I am sure he will grow up to be a total heart-breaker.

You simply can't beat children for photographs. Of course not having any of my own I have to rely on other peoples for photography.

I took the photo at a wedding I went to last year of our friends Rach and Jey.

One tree hill

One tree hill

This is a photograph from the village I used to live in called Rothley.

I love the way sky blue turns in deep black and white. The rich nature of the photograph's tone really comes out. I really must take more of these types of shots when the weather gets better.

The reason I am posting this photo (other than filling the site a bit) is to help work out some niggles. I won't go into it too much but basically to help with the navigation I need a portrait example posted, so here it is!

The golden flower

The golden flower

Here is another shot from the opening page animation on imagi.

I took this one morning when the sun was very bright. I was eating breakfast when, after seeing the light, the mood took me to take a photo.

The colour of the flower was enhanced by my golden reflector, with the droplets of water added with a small, hand-held plant spray that I keep for just such a shot.

I imagine the neighbours thought I was barmy running around in my dressing-gown, setting up the flowers in the window, holding a huge reflective disc. (I didn't ask ;) )

A new beginning...

A new beginning...

It seems like a long time ago I decided to update my website 'imagi', turning it (hopefully) into something a bit more interactive.

Finally I have got to this stage where I can begin to post content (photos and text) and lay the initial, important foundation that can be built on in the future.
I am hoping to post regularly again to my photoblog. Balancing my time with the construction of this new site and the updates for the old has meant I haven’t kept the blog as current as I would have wanted.
