This blog is to showcase some of the photo's I've taken, the pictures can be from my archive of many years or taken recently. They are from where I live and the various places I have been. I hope Enjoy my work and come back to visit again
Wittenham Clumps, these are the clump of hills which dominate the area I live in and stand beside Brightwell Barrow There re two clumps, the second is hidden from view behind the one you see here. This used to be an Iron Age Hill Fort and is worth a visit if you are in the area.
Last year my wife and I thought we would try the caravan out for a weekend and decided on Garlieston which was in Scotland. Turned out to be a long way to go for a weekend. The harbor played its part in the Second World War.
I'll publish a few more photos from the place over the next few days.
This is the traffic I encountered after picking my son up from Gatwick airport after he arived back from the states. It's quewing toget off the M25 and get on the M4. After being sat in it for 15 min I pulled out and drove to the M40 where it had less traffic and I was soon home.
I took this with my phone when the traffic was stationary.
This is the photo of the dam behind the Visitor center I showed yesterday. I had to look on Geograph to find this photo that turns out I took back in 2006. As you can see water is just flowing (wind blown) over the top due to it being near to full.
Check out the photo below to see what the dam look like with water really flowing over it.
If the photo looks a little fuzzy it's because there is so much water in the air. I will have to return to the place one day to take some more photos.
The other day I published a photograph entitled Traffic Lights what it did not show was what was round the bend out of sight, so this is what you see looking the other way. I took the photo while waiting at the red light and it shows the tanker which I think is pumping water from an underground drain which has been causing problems with flodding just along the road.
A view few people will get to see unless you were a builder working on the Fairmile site in Cholsey. The view here is of the village itself taken from the top of the scaffold round one of the buildings.
I've spent the last three years going round the site photographing the progress and from time to time I will post the odd photo on here.
The A329 from Moulsford Railway bridge towards Halfpenny lane is down to one lane because the footpath has been closed due it being undermined by rabbits. The council say it will be a while before it can be repaired because there is no money in the budget.
Pity they did not have the foresight to see this as the path was collapsing years ago but they chose to overlook it.
Mean while people have to cue up and wait for the lights to change.
Traffic lights have been placed along the London Road in Blewbury causing small tailbacks during the day. The reason is a tanker is usually parked just out of photo with a long hose placed in a drain could not say if it's unloading or removing water from it but I do know there is water seeping through the road round this area.
A couple of years ago I started taking pohotos on the development of Parkway Shopping centre in Newbury, the work started in 2008 and the place opened in Oct 201. During the work Costain the main contractor saw the photos I had been takeing and invited me on site to look round and get some photos.
This is a stitched one I took from the Penthouse when it was being built and looks over the apartments on the top of the shopping center . You can read my blog and article in the links below.
A couple of years ago I went to a wedding as the photographer (I was cheap) and the Bride & Groom had a medieval theme to the wedding so all the guests including me came dressed the part. The entertainment was this group of entertainers and I have to say it was the best wedding I have been to in years.
