Ships and stunts at Bristol Harbour Festival 2016

I’m very behind on blogging events and shoots, like the Bristol Harbour Festival that we went west for in July. For cranes, trains, boats and bunting, including displays from tall ships and steam tugs, minesweepers and fireboats, as the old city docks hosted vintage vessels for harbourside spectators. We rode […]

Canalway Cavalcade 2

[fimg id=26497433040] On bank holiday weekend, boaters congregated at Little Venice on the Paddington Branch of the Grand Union Canal for the Inland Waterways Association Canalway Cavalcade. [fimg id=26676546732 size=Medium][fimg id=26496817630 size=Medium] An English village fete for boat dwellers of sorts, with agricultural show-style demonstrations of boating skills and equipment.

How to deliver a petition

[fimg id=5081123343 size=Medium][fimg id=5081123335 size=Medium] First, get 35,000 people to sign your petition, and find a friendly university stationary office who can print that many hundreds of pages. Hurry down Whitehall to hang around outside Downing Street while another petition goes in before you. [fimg id=5081123327] Ensure that you have […]

The Cheese Festival

[fimg id=5076050763] I love the Durham Township photoblog — all the fabulous atmospheric shallow-focus photos of rural Pensylvania. Especially the ones of the traditional county fairs and farm shows. The kids with candyfloss, prize livestock on display, and old fashioned family entertainment. [fimg id=5076050749] We have those in England, too: […]
