The White Rat Cat, Liverpool, England

Graffiti as art on the walls of a disused pub in Liverpool, photographed on a trip to visit Jo in November 2004 and now hanging as a photograph on our wall at home. The painting is by reknowned street artist Banksy, whose work has recently been reported in the British “Daily Mail” newspaper as having… (Read More)

Sunrise over the Jungfrau Region

A photo which probably represents the end of Autumn.

An Inconvenient Truth

The only one for me

My light in the darkness, who has more patience for my photographic madness than I could imagine in a thousand dreams.

Clifftop, Freshwater West, Wales

Going through photos from our wedding and honeymoon trip last year, to compile a book from Blurb. So expect a few more ones you haven’t seen yet being added to this Flickr set.

Pfister faking it

This poster is from a campaign for Swiss interior design company Pfister, the tag line of which states that the inner city of Bern is being re-vamped. What the poster specifically refers to isn’t 100% clear (at least, there appears to be no reference to the campaign online), it might be a clever (or unwitting)… (Read More)
