Summers here

I love summer – even when its too hot to sleep. This year so far its not been bad. Not enough summers storms though. I love thunder and lightning. Still one of my ambitions to to photograph a lightning strike.  This is the new Grandstand bar and summer screen in Canada Square Park, Canary Wharf. 

Grab your ice creams while Wimbledon is still on !!!

I absolutely love LONDON

There have been so many horrible horrible things happening in London and Manchester. Some people think living in a big city must be nightmarish. I have to say I love it. I LOVE London.  It doesn’t seem to matter what gets thrown at Londoners they get their heads down and crack on with life. On Monday I had to make a trip up to the South Bank. The sun was blazing and the tourists were out in force. Trip up their was hellish on the overcrowded hot train, had a bit of light relief when a lady opened her bottle of iced water and spilt some on me. It that heat it felt wonderful. On the way back to work I took to the water. We are lucky enough to have a boat at work the guys came along the river to pick me up. Would be rude not to take photos on the way back don’t you thing?

Not posted much but just want to say I LOVE LONDON

It all seems to be bad news at the moment. Especially with the horrific events in Manchester and London. The today the horrifying images from the fire at Grenfell Tower.

With every horrific story comes tales of heroism and selfless acts in trying to help save others. 

I have lived in London since I was 12 and I have to say I have never been more proud to say I am a Londoner

British Lionhearts v French Fighting Roosters – World Series Boxing

Last night we went to see the British Lionhearts GB Boxing Team fight for a place in the semi finals of the World Series Boxing against the French Fighting Roosters.

There had been a promo event at Canary Wharf the day before and the lads were lovely and determined to win.  That’s exactly what they did.  Congratulations GB Boxing

Cake Smash day – SE London Photographer

Happy Birthday Skylar for the 1st May. 

Skylar came to the studio this weekend. Mummy brought her to see me and she had lots of lovely outfits which I will be sharing in the next few days and she was a little star.  Think she enjoyed her cake.  We love a cake smash at Abbey Wood Studios.  Some much fun and so messy. Skylar got stuck in but enjoyed trying to eat her beads almost as much as the cake.

Its all in a days work

I am lucky enough to have two work lives. My day job at Canary Wharf and Studio work which is my passion. At my day job my role has changed beyond belief in the last couple of years. One of my greatest joys is that a camera has been bought for me to keep at work. Now I can take on some of the photography jobs that we need doing. I am loving it. Its a bit scary because I can pick and choose so some may be out of my comfort zone but its all good. Loving trying new things

Day out to East London to watch West Ham at London Stadium

And a good day was had by all – well if you are a West Ham fan at least.

Weather was lovely and although the football wasn’t as pretty as you would like West Ham won in what was a massive match for them. As usual the camera had to come along.

Well would be rude not too.

Finally feels like spring has sprung – Blue skies and blossoms

I had to pop out this morning with the camera and on the way back to the office decided that it was too beautiful a morning to miss. Spent a little while in Jubilee Park, Canary Wharf. Love this park its only 2 minutes from the office and is always popular. Sun was out, people were in their shirt sleeves and the blossoms are on the trees. I am not a winter lover so when spring comes along it makes me very happy.
