My pictures from Machu Picchu (and Peru in general) are proving to be a bit of a ‘mare to edit down to a small set to show; it’s the wrong time of year for a nice drawn out contemplative exercise. Have a place holder for now:
Inca Ruins and Huayna Picchu
This is the last week of the ‘Firsts’ retrospective series (links to week
one, two, three, and four), and looks all the way back to the second post ever on this blog.
This was the first picture I made that I ever had printed larger than a 9×6. It still hangs in my living room (I’m looking at it above the sofa opposite as I type this).
Paris circa 2010
I’ve tried to make the photo again, and better since 2010, but, for me, I’ve never bettered my first attempt – I think the mist is a very necessary component.
I did try this as a
black and white conversion – it looks better on screen, but the sepia print is still better (regardless of what I said at the time!)
Paris, circa 2014 – trying again
Different, and also printed, but not the first and not better. Feel free to disagree
Basilica, city, Contre Jour, Eiffel Tower, France, Grotesque, La Basilique du Sacré Coeur de Montmartre, La Butte, lights, Montmarte, Paris, Sacre Coeur, telescope, trees

Week 2: Two Headed Deer
OK, so it’s just an illusion spotted when I was in
Richmond Park a while ago. As it happens, it’s not the only illusion I’ve spotted over the years – here’s one in Paris:
In Front or Behind?
blue, buildings, Cerberos's dinner, deer, gold, Illusion, London, Optical Illusion, Paris, Reflection, Richmond Park, Seine, shiney, two heads are most certainly different than one - at least
I’ve been in a bit of a retrospective mood lately, so the next few weeks will be a recap of some of my photographic firsts. There’s no particular order, and no particular theme – other than they stand out for me.
Week 1: Lewes Castle
This originally featured in
a post last December.
Here’s a couple of photos I took this time last year (-ish); both different views of London’s main waterway.
