This is where I share some of my photographic efforts. I have a very basic kit, as in a few very old analogue bodies and a couple of old canon digital bodies and some old lenses and bits of glass, nothing expensive. My favourite bits of kit our my home made pinhole cameras and my hand spliced and re-engineered lenses and my bits and bobs of old lomography stuff. I do my best with what I have at the moment and I like to experiment and make mistakes and some times the odd exciting happy accident that takes me by suprise. Photography is a big love coupled with cycling and exploring with a camera or two.

“You don't take a photograph, you make it.”

― Ansel Adams

So far this prism lens project has been purley in the experimental phases. I have some trips planned to visit some henges and historic ruins and some very ambient derelicts in Germany. So I will get more creative and put this lens to more exciting use soon enough. I also have some new glass cut, different colours and I will be experimenting with different colour lighting. Soon.


No photoshop, bar the odd crop here and there has been used in these image effects. It is all in the lens and camera!

A walk along the shore


Walk down the cliff, to see this sight,

The wind does blow, but sky is bright.

Travel is but short, yet so very steep,

The memory of it, I will always keep.


As I progress along, the heights I despise,

So far below me, stands my true prize.

The hill walk back, I wish to forget,

With high vantage point, shot I must get.


I'm struck with awe, the sight before me,

Of Jurassic times past, gateway to the sea.

The famous arched rock, that I stand before,

A natural formed arch, they call Durdle Door.


Never will I see, such an amazing view,

Something I do wish, every body could do.

The waves do encircle, feel my spirit rise,

How one little place, makes me come alive.
