Funny how plans change

I was convinced this morning when I was walking along London’s South Bank to catch a train from Waterloo that there’d either be no photography at all, or that at best the flat light and miserable weather would make it a monochrome morning.  Wrong.  I had time to take a handful of photographs en route and the only ones I liked were in colour!  Shows how well I can picture things beforehand…. A bit of grunge and dramatic contrast has lifted these shots and they turned out to be all about the colour – utterly lifeless in black and white.

The Photographers Block--78This is HMS President, originally built in Scotland in 1918 and sporting spectacular “dazzle” camouflage as part of WW1 commemorations.  She was only in active service for a few years and was more recently sold for use now as a riverside bar.

South East London-based, I work for the National Health Service but try and fit in some photography on a regular basis - often on dog walks with Harry my patient Lab-Retriever! Harry and his three cat companions provide some photographic material when the going gets really tough (it's the internet - gotta have a cat photo) but the almost-grown kids stay as far away from the lens as possible!
