• Holy Rollers, Secret Societies and Skeletons

    Here are some of the results from a fun roll of Fomapan 400 ive shot in the wonderful Leica Standard/Heliar 15mm set up. I was fortunate enough to be passing St. Pancras Hotel when this amazing Silver Wraith was parked outside. Caught eye contact with the chauffeur, pointed to my …

  • While the angels and the dragons try to make them their own.

    This post follows along the same well trodden path of angels and dragons, only no cat to end the post this time. Instead, imagine cats had wings! All shots were taken on Fomapan 400 / LC29 in my wonderful Leica Standard / Heliar 15mm setup. I think they are from from roughly …

In Covent Garden sometime last year there was an installation of hundreds of white spheres. Great for imitation bokeh.
