The Urban Forest

Nice to have another feature in the excellent online journal The Garden Edit​. From a series of photographs taken between 2011- 2014 of the Elephant and Castle Urban Forest​ which is now being redeveloped:

Kenya Rally, February 2000

Safari Rally, Kenya, February 2000

The Safari Rally with Colin McRae and the Ford Rally Team for Top Gear, February 2000. Over the Rift Valley, Kenya, all teams used helicopters as a viewing platform to instruct their drivers and warn of obstacles in their path. One of the most memorable and scary shoots. Looking back at the other helicopters was a like viewing a scene from Mash, as they zig-zagged down the valley, rising and falling as the approached power cables. Many things were learnt here. The most important was never drink copious amounts of vodka the evening before a helicopter ride.

Brent River Park

Revisiting part of a walk I completed 12 months ago – through Brent River Park, Hanwell.

Wasn’t sure if this was a memorial or not. Placed on a tree over the River Brent,  there was nothing to suggest why these flowers were there, but it looked quite deliberate.

I have photographed the Wharncliffe Viaduct many times. Wandering around beneath the huge arches is like being in a film set. Maybe ‘Logan’s Run’ …..nature reclaiming a derelict city.

Urban walks – 26.4.13

From a selection of images submitted to Millennium Images yesterday. I’ve never quite worked this one out. It looks like the leftovers of a strange ritual. On Waterloo Bridge in the rush hour, with thousands of people walking by.

Infra red

Not spring colour, but some infra red images from a roll taken whilst I was at college….circa 1980. They came to mind after a conversation this morning. Requiring the old E4 process, which was pretty much obsolete, even then, it was a bit of a palava to use. And expensive. But turning anything containing chlorophyll bright red, it was interesting to play with.
