In May 2018 my daughter Kitty and I made a trip to Berlin. This was to fulfil a very old ambition of mine to visit the Neues Museum and see the ancient and most beautiful bust of Queen Nefertiti – a 5,000 year old marvel.
Here are the pictures I took during our trip
The Brandenberg Gate and Unter den Linden
The Holocaust Memorial
Thanks to all those of you who asked if you could purchase prints of my work. This struck me as an excellent idea – and I am proud to announce the opening of my on-line shop.
For the last three years I have presented my photography at the Worthing Artists Open Houses event – and I do this by producing education film strips.
My first example was in black and white and grungey! You can find it on youtube here.
This year’s filmstrip was called “Look At Life” in honour of the legendary Rank film series of the same name – for those of you who didn’t make to our open house this gallery includes all the images featured in the film strip. You can make up your own commentary for now while I continue working in the script.
Here are my second set of trichromic photographs. I noticed in my previous set a lot of colour fringing where the black and white images didn’t quite line up. This was due to the camera moving when I changed the colour filter, and the fact that I was in zoom lens which zoomed in or out slightly while I was changing the filter. So this time I used a fixed lens and a lovely Olympus OM30 camera – much more solid results.
You can’t help but notice the people appear in different colours. They really bring out the time effects these images can produce!
These photos were taken using the trichrome technique: each is made up of three black & white images shot through a primary colour filter. Red, Green and Blue. Then combined to make a colour image. These are my first attempts – I love the colour fringes when the camera moves between shots, or the ghostly images of people and cars that move between colour changes.

Here are some shots of the Worthing bus festival in 2016. It’s always a very colourful event, and once again the weather in Worthing was brilliant. These images were shot of Agfa Precisa 100. I think processed them in the kitchen sink using. Apparently colour processing is very sensitive to the temparature of the chemicals. I tried my best with these – and I guess you could call it beginner’s luck – because the they came out with nice punchy colours.
This new blog is intended to be the new home for the results of my photographic projects. Let’s fill it up!
