Somerset House Fountains

The first real day of Spring. I took Indie to see Landmark at Somerset House, and Pip & Laurie came along later. Then the girls spent a happy hour getting soaking in the fountains.

These, and plenty of other Easter photos, on Flickr as usual.

A Published Photographer!

I’ve been published, in a real book!

Everyone should rush out and buy Camping By The Waterside , because page 9 features an excellent photo of my friend Lydia throwing a Frisbee on a beach in Cornwall. Taken by me!


Old Vic Tunnel Photo on Londonist

Londonist used one of my photos this week, in a post on the closure of the Old Vic Tunnels.

The Clowns’ Service, Dalston 2013

I finally got round to one of those London things – the annual Grimaldi Memorial Service at the Clowns’ Church – Holy Trinity in Dalston. We were really late (rail-replacement bus…) so we sat in the overflow hall and watched most of it on a big screen, but this meant we had perfect seats for […]

January 2013 Roundup

As well as the Shard, we stumbled across the Kings Cross Hot Club Tea Dance in the Eisenhower Room at Lassco’s off Maltby Street Market, and I went to the Antony Gormley exhibition at White Cube on Bermondsey Street twice – once with the girls, and once with my parents.

All recommended – we go […]

I have got the gorilla out of my system

I completed the Great Gorilla Run 2012 on Saturday, my second one. For 30 glorious seconds near the start I was the lead gorilla, but I was overtaken going down some stairs by someone with bigger eye-holes (who could see the steps), and I never regained the lead. Evolution in action.

As before, it was […]

All the trees in China

I spent a week in China recently helping on a research project into the effects of global warming. The trip was sponsored by my company Credit Suisse, as part of the Credit Suisse Cares For Climate initiative, and was delivered through the global environment charity Earthwatch and their local research partner the Chinese Academy of […]
