Lots Road Power Station 1

Over the years, living and commuting in a variety of places, there have been objects and views that I’ve had the chance to shoot again and again, in all different lights and seasons. The current object, between my flat in Battersea and office in South Kensington, is Lots Road Power Station, allegedly known as the […]

On the canals at Castlefield

Until May 2011, when I had to go to a meeting in the city, I’d never been to Manchester. I’ve still spent barely any time there. With little time to devote to photography while there, I instinctively rode over to the part of the city centre that looked most interesting on the Ordnance Survey map: […]

At Abereiddy

Walking south along the coast path of St David’s Head in the Pembrokeshire National Park, amongst the bays and headlands of rugged and ragged cliffs and worn-down volcanic hills, one lesser, lower, headland stands out for its clearly man-made feature. The squat little tower of Abereiddy, standing on a headland that is barely still there, […]

The Crinan Canal

Not your usual inland navigation: the 14km canal from sea to sea — Ardrishaig on Loch Gilp in the east and Crinan on the Sound of Jura in the west, cutting across the top of the long and narrow Kintyre-Knapdale peninsula — built in 1794 for commercial sea going sailing vessels. Later replaced by steamboats, […]

On Snowdon

Some shots from Britain’s busiest mountain, and the highest in Wales, mostly from an ascent in June 2009. It’s not just that Snowdon is busy with tourists hiking on the several ascent paths. Far more visibly than many of Britain’s highlands, it’s a very developed and exploited landscape — and not just in terms of […]

Cwmorthin

Cwmorthin is one of the many huge disused slate quarries and mines around Blaenau Ffestiniog in Snowdonia, a mile walk up into the Moelwyn Mountains from the town and station. Most of the workings are underground, in the many miles of mine tunnels that climb and descend inside the mountain, some of them still open […]

Burst of bicycle couples

A short set of photos I took in the autumn on Zeeburgereiland, one of the artificial islands off Amsterdam’s waterfront. Surrounded by all sorts of bridges and tunnels, shipping canals and dams, motorways and tramways, but with these three silos standing alone in a big empty wasteland… ave added the Netherlands to the site’s collection […]

Neighbourhood II

…continued from last week. Or else stay on the south bank, follow the river around through North Greenwich, and enter the realm of the last remaining real industry, even as it falls to the rolling redevelopment. And you’re forced away from the river onto the Blackwall Tunnel road where cars rush through the windswept wastes […]
