Return to Bodiam


It was supposed to be a nice and sunny day, it surely started that way but then the rain came. Still, it was Sunday and I decided to head back to Bodiam castle.
Last time I have been here was in 2009 and I had the Panasonic LC1 with me, this time I took the GXR A12-M with the Nokton 35mm and my favourite lens the Heliar 15mm.

The first picture is taken from the same spot and should give an idea how little things have changed (including the weather) since my last visit.

An Evening with Friends


Tonight I spent a great evening at Oliver's Jazz Bar in Greenwich, after going there almost once or twice ever week when I lived further away I have not been in quite a while although I live just down the road. Oliver's is always a great venue to relax, listen to Jazz and have a glass of wine. Sure, the walls and furniture have seen better days, it's small and dark but this is the right kind of venue you want to be in when listening to Jazz as it allows to be sit back, relax and focus on the music. It also offers the opportunity to be close to the band and have a chat with them and their friends or make new friends with the other people.
In other words if you're in London and want to listen to Jazz, you could go to Ronnie Scott's or if you want it less commercial and more raw you come to Oliver's.

Clyde Morris & the Blue Grooves were playing but this was a special night, it was also Clyde's birthday and he had some friends as special guests performing. The music was fantastic and everyone, the musicians and guests equally, had a great time you could easily see this.
In no small part this was thanks to Clyde's wife who not only greeted everyone and made sure people paid the entrance fee to contribute to her charity, but was full of energy and a great host to everyone, everyone felt at home thanks to her. She also had some very nice home made Caribbean canapés for everyone and then shared the birthday cake.

So on this note a happy birthday to Clyde and to everyone else enjoy this series.

Sunday at the Southbank


Weather was very nice so I went into London and around Southbank today. This is a series of some pictures I took before managing to fill my SD card and empty my battery without a spare around, overall it was not a well planned photo trip.

Waiting in the City


Just a small series while waiting for the train, I initially wanted to post only one picture from the day but thought these work well together so decided on posting all.

Minnesota - Best of the Rest


Since I did not take any pictures worth posting today, just a small series with pictures from Minnesota that I liked but did not post for various reasons.
