I rarely make photos when I am on holiday with Emma, I find it hard to concentrate on what is happening around me. But London is so packed with people, packed with life and energy it is hard not to make photos.

These are from the only sunny day of our long weekend break last week.

Man crouching on a chair. The chair is in a public park or garden. There is an office building in the background.
Harshly lit platform of Barbican tube station. A man waits , standing in an alcove. Th harsh light emphasises the shadows and highlights, while the colours from the underground roundel pop.
A man sits outside a cafe reading a newspaper. He wears a shirt and casual jacket. A tie hangs half knotted from his neck. The man's hands are in the process of tying the tie. The tie is very colourful with a blue background and yellow, almost cartoon like, squares. He is an older man although not of late age. His hair is thinning to the point of baldness.
A man, dressed for sports or keeping fit, pushes a tree. He is probably just stretching after his morning work-out but it looks like he is pushing the tree to keep it upright. The tree is in a park and there are people in the background ignoring him. He is red faced and a bit sweaty.

I made this on my visit to Wells last Sunday. It was, as are most of my better photos, seen while walking back to the car.

I love a day of harsh light and dark shadows.

#shadow #streetphotography #canpubphoto #photography

Photograph looking into a restaurant window in the city of Wells. The room is dark, an effect heightened by the dynamic range of the camera, with a small patch of light harshly highlighting a woman sitting at a table towards the back of the room. The woman is holding her head in her hands and is looking down at the table top. In the foreground you can just make out the outlines of two people having an animated conversation. Hanging from the ceiling of the room are vintage style lightbulbs.

We should be lovers, and that's a fact.

Merry Christmas you filthy animal.

I made this photo in 2018 while Emma was shopping in Blade Rubber Stamps, near the British Museum. Suddenly the road was filled with Santas, who had obviously had a little too much of the brandy and mince pies.

Photograph of a person wearing a Santa costume, pressed up against a shop window. There are more people in Santa costumes in the background. Framing the person are red baubles hanging in the shop window.

"May the force be with you"

I made this photo while following a protest through the streets of Bristol. My eye was caught by the way this officer held his arms behind his back, with tattoos on show. It was only when reviewing the photos later that I spotted what was depicted. Perhaps I should call this one, "the long arm of the law".

#StarWars #MilleniumFalcon #TheForce #Police #Bristol #PCSO #Tattoo #StreetPhotography #Photography #CanPubPhoto

Photograph of the back of a Police Community Support Officer. The officer is wearing a black uniform with a PSCO badge on their back. You can't see their head or legs, but you can see them holding their arms behind their back. Their arms are bare and are covered with a few tattoos. One of the tattoos is the Millennium Falcon from the film Star Wars.

As we head towards the winter solstice, the light that flows through the city is harsh and low. It sometimes feels that when the clouds part, every hour is golden.

#StreetPhotography #WinterLight #GoldenHour #StrongColour #CanPubPhoto

Photograph of a man wearing a puffer jacket with three bold strips of yellow, red, and dark red. The background is almost black. The man is wearing an England beanie hat, and above his head is stripy bunting.
Close-up photograph of a person shading their eyes from harsh winter sunlight. They are wrapped up warm but are wearing amber tinted sunglasses that project a warm glow onto their face.
Photograph of a person who has found the only sunny spot on an otherwise shadowy day. They are pushing their hair backwards and drinking in the sunlight.
Photograph of a person wearing a bright pink woollen coat. They walk confidently towards the other side of the frame with their back to the camera. Sunlight is reflecting from three windows on the side of a building in the background, this casts three shards of light directly towards the photographer, while the surrounding is in shadow.

You better watch out
You better not cry

I made this photo in December 2016 on Anchor Road behind @wshed. I feel there is tension and unease from these two children running to or possibly from something while the person in the background looks befuddled or confused.

He sees you when you're sleeping
He knows when you're awake
He knows when you've been bad or good
So be good for goodness sake

#Bristol #StreetPhotography #CanPubPhoto #SantaClaus #Christmas

Photograph of two children running from the left of the frame to the right. In the background is a person looking round towards the direction che children are running with a confused or concerned look on their face. Behind the person is a brick wall with the letter E painted on it.

How's your day going?

I made this photo in April this year. It was complete chance that this person was walking along with their happy yellow tote bag.

#StreetPhotography #Unhappy #Sad #Happy #CanPubPhoto

Photograph of a person walking along a pavement. They are carrying a bright yellow tote bag with a smiling face printed on the side. They are walking next to a white hoarding. Behind the hoarding is the roofline of a building and the top of a cherry picker. Graffitied on the wall is a simple depiction of an unhappy face.

Our streets are filled with moments of humanity, we just need to unglue our eyes from our phones and look around.

Our lives are filled with moments of hilarity, stupidity, absurdity, and frustration. I like to be there to make photographs of life, as it happens.

I made this photograph in an area of Bristol known as The Bear Pit. It was a haven of self expression through graffiti that changed weekly, but due in part to anti-social behaviour was sterilised back to being an underpass through a roundabout.

#StreetPhotography #CanPubPhoto #Bristol

Photograph of stairs leading down to a pedestrian underpass. Emerging from the underpass is a van, with two workpeople in high-viz clothing. The van looks like it is stuck and can't get out from the underpass.

I made this photo while walking through the City of London in May this year. After two years of pandemic, and all restrictions recently lifted, was this a reminder of the past or a portent of what was soon to come?

Photograph of a person walking along a pavement, past a store front with 'Last Day' written on the window. They are carrying a tote bag with the words 'Rough Trade' written on the side.

Bristol; November 2022.

Made on Corn Street in Bristol, as the autumn light gave way to evening and people shaded their eyes from the sun low in the sky.

Photograph. A hand holds sunglasses, silhouetted against a sky changing from white at the bottom of the page to deep blue at the top. On either side is the silhouette of a roofline stretching from the bottom to the top of the photo, framing the hand and glasses.

London; November 2022.

There are parts of London that are dark and dingy, that hark back to a different time, a different place - until something snaps you back into today as you see the chain coffee cup to keep them going through the remainder of a long day.

#StreetPhotography #Photography #CanPubPhoto

Photograph depicting a person carrying a coffee cup. The photo is very dark with muted colours, and in the background you can just make out the lines of brickwork. On the very left edge of the photo is a person in a white shirt and apron. They are carrying a coffee cup in their right hand, while their left arm is positioned almost awkwardly behind them. They are striding from left to right.

I make photos of street life, mostly in the UK. I'll toot these infrequently.

This one was made in the City of London earlier this year.
