One Billion Rising - Norwich 2015

14th February is a global day of action to demand an end to violence against women. The United Nations estimate that one in three women will be raped or beaten in her lifetime. That’s one billion women. All around the world people drum, dance, rise and raise their voices to say ‘no more!' Just as this group of people in Norwich did, this is a revolution through dance.

A few from Cambridge

Well the resolution to keep on top of photo sorting didn't last long - these were taken a month ago (at time of writing.) It was nice to see a bit of blue skies and sunshine in January though.

The Lion's Part 12th Night Celebrations 2015

It was cold, it was foggy, it was crowded, the light was dire - that's the excuses made.

Meanwhile The Lion's Part once again put on a (free) fun event in London. What a great first event for 2015! The 12th night Celebrations are always very enjoyable and very entertaining. Challenging to photograph but that's all part of the fun.

New Year's Resolutions

I don't make them, I always think anyone who does sets themselves up for failure. I don't think I know of anyone who has ever kept a resolution made on January 1st. However.... I would like to keep more on top of sifting and sorting my photos this year, there are hundreds that I never got round to sorting last year.

I go for a walk most days, always with camera in hand just in case. Just in case can produce anything from zero to a couple of hundred photos. So not a resolution, more a decision to do better, and with that in mind here's a slideshow of some of the photos I've taken since Christmas day.

West Mersea RNLI Boxing Day Dip 2014

Boxing day was cold! Despite this we decided to head off to West Mersea for the first time ever. The aim was to watch and take photos of their Boxing Day dip. Did I say it was cold? It was and so the dip was over in minutes! Got to admire the hardy dippers though, and all for a very good cause. Great atmosphere and photographer friendly too.

Merry Chritmas to all

However you celebrate (or not as the case may be) have a good one

Mill Road Winter Fair 2014

As always Mill Road's Winter Fair provided plenty of fun, food and entertainment. The weather was very cold but the sky was blue and the sun shone brightly. Of course that had the resultant effect of some parts of these images being in bright sunlight whilst others are in shade. Would do it all again though, it's always a cracking event, we thoroughly enjoyed it.
