I took this picture at Overton Estate on the same day as the swan below. This is a good place to visit especially in the Autumn if you time it right for the leaves on the trees.
The best time to take a photo here would be in the  morning as I was little too late at 3pm to make the most of the reflections.

Tesco Shop Fronts

Incredible as it sounds. There is acually a page on Flickr dedicated to Tesco Shop Fronts and I was recently asked to put this snapshot of Port Glasgow Tesco on it. You can have  look at other entries at

Photography Documentary

The television highlight this week has to be the new documentary

The Man Who Shot the 60s
(BBC 4. Wednesday 13th, 9pm and 12.45am. Repeated Thursday 14th, 11pm).

Brian Duffy was one of the greatest photographers of his generation.
Along with David Bailey and Terence Donovan he defined the image of the 1960s and was as famous as the stars he photographed. Then suddenly in the 1970s he disappeared from view and burned all his negatives. With the first ever exhibition of his work due, Duffy has agreed to be filmed to talk about his life, his work and why he made it all go up in flames.
