Man O’War Cove in Dorset
Man o’War Cove is in Dorset, next to the more well known landmark of Durdle Door. This two minute long exposure was taken during the UK Seaside Photowalk 2013 in October.
Cafe Le Dome, Paris
A typical Parisian cafe near to the Eiffel Tower in Paris. Sally and I went to Paris to escape the royal wedding in 2011 and to celebrate our own anniversary. We arrived quite late on the Thursday evening on the Eurostar from London and went out to find something to eat. The atmosphere of cafes like this one, especially after dark, is one of the things I love about Paris.
This was taken a little bit earlier in the evening, but the title, Midnight in Paris, is a reference to the great film of the same name by Woody Allen.
Distillery District, Toronto
After spending a very enjoyable afternoon wandering around downtown Toronto, shooting architecture with our good friend John Kosmopoulos, we ended up in the Distillery District. As we arrived, it started to rain very hard so we dashed into Balzac’s for a coffee (highly recommended!). By the time we left there, the rain had eased off to a drizzle and it was getting dark, making the light just right for a shot of this old rusting Dodge truck.
Here’s another shot from the wonderful weekend we spent in Dorset with some great photographers from Google+. Durdle Door was the first meeting point for the official photo walk which started on Saturday morning, but this photo was taken at sunset on Friday evening when the light was far more interesting.
Man O’War Cove
Last weekend, my wife Sally and I joined around thirty other photographers for a photo walk in Dorset, which was organised on Google+. We met up with some friends from previous photo walks, made some new friends and generally had a blast. This photo was taken on the afternoon before the official photo walk, when we arrived in West Lulworth and took a short drive to Durdle Door. Man O’War Cove is the next cove to the east of Durdle Door and these limestone rocks, just off the shore, were taking a battering from the waves.
