    The Tour of the Alps

    April 20, 2018
    Tour of the Alps

    In September the World Road Race Championships are going to be held in Innsbruck, so the organisers of the Tour of the Alps thought it would be a good idea to cover some of the course for the final stage. This happens to be very close to where we live and the climbs are familiar to us. One particular section I have ridden more than 50 times and is a great gauge of your fitness. So apart from my interest in watching the actual race I was interested to see how fast the professionals would be, and as everyone seems to upload their rides to Strava these days, it has been quite interesting to take a look. Needless to say my reasonably respectable time has been bumped down the leaderboard somewhat.

    We headed over to the top of the climb taking mountain bikes to avoid the roads and I took a few photos from the top of the Olympia climb near Patsch. Hope you enjoy them!

    Family photo shoot at Packwood House

    On a gloriously sunny winter’s day we decided to head to Packwood House, and thought that it would be fun if everybody took cameras. Eugene and the girls choseĀ film cameras loaded with black and…

    Why choose to make black and white photographs?

    Years ago there really wasn’t any choice: photography meant making black and white, or monochrome, pictures. Photography in the 21st century, however, is now predominantly colour: the vast majority of photographs are captured on…

    This is one film that you must try

    I am really enjoying shooting film and it is great fun experimenting with different film stock. I have used Kodak Ektar 100 colour film, Ilford’s classic FP4+ black and white film and thought it…
