Today’s walk up my hill – A photographic journey

The sun was shining so I took my camera on a walk up my hill this morning.

It felt like spring. The crocuses and daffs were out basking in the light.

There were clumps and drifts of snowdrops in among the trees and on the banks. Other flowers were beginning to emerge.

The sky looked so big with great clouds.

I caught a glimpse of my Red Kite but he was high up and soon became a speck in the sky.

Then there was this little guy singing his heart out.

Lazy Lester in a rare gig in London – photos

Lazy Lester produced great Swamp Blues numbers such as ‘I’m A Lover Not a Fighter’. I first him back in the mid-sixties. He was covered by bands like The Kinks and appeared on a compilation album of Swamp Blues. I loved that album – Lighnin’ Slim, Slim Harpo, Lonesome Sundown and Lazy Lester.

So when I heard he was playing a very rare gig I had to go. I gatecrashed a photo session and took a series of shots with him sitting on a sofa. Then I took other shots during the gig.


Yorkshire Dales – The English countryside at its best – photos

When the weather is sunny there are few places in the world better than England for stunning beauty. To be out in the midst of nature is refreshing. Away from the rat-race, the claustrophobia of society, the politics and intrigue – free!!
