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 […]
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. An English village fete for boat dwellers of sorts, with agricultural show-style demonstrations of boating skills and equipment. And bunting. So much bunting.

Hurry down Whitehall to hang around outside Downing Street while another petition goes in before you. Ensure that you have one Evan Harris to turn up unannounced […]
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. We have those in England, too: things like the Sturminster […]
