This afternoon I received an advance copy of the book I shot with Katie Rushworth and Tara O’Sullivan last summer. Really pleased!

Business is blooming

From a shoot on business women in You Magazine on 16th August 2015. On a large feature, several thousand shots often need editing down to half a dozen or so. This means overlooking many equally good images. So, a small selection of out-takes.  The first, a quick shot as I was packing my kit away.

If one can have a favourite disused tennis court, this must be it. A slightly neglected corner of Gunnersbury Park, it must be one of the busiest parts of the grounds for pollinating insects. So Ealing Council, no need for clearing here, let nature do the work for you!

Cross Bones Graveyard. A follow-up after a visit two years ago. The plaque gives a concise description, so no need for much more info. Only that it’s not really official, and is a constantly changing memorial, and example of spontaneous people’s art.

Chrysanthemums…….or Chrymanthesums?

Every time I hear the word Chrysanthemum I think of the Monty Python sketch, Flower arranging, with DP Gumby.  When I went to my friend Lila das Gupta’s allotment yesterday, to photograph a few varieties of  Chrysanthemum, the picture of Michael Palin standing in front of a table with a knotted handkerchief on his head was never far away. Chrysanth’s have had bad press over the years, which has not been helped by the cliched petrol station flower. I don’t hate them. I might even be persuaded there are some nice ones. Some.

Lila’s plants were willing subjects for portraits. They didn’t make it difficult for me. Most were fairly bright, which helped as it was an overcast day, and they were not so delicate that they danced around every time a  breeze hit them. Perhaps that was it – they were just a bit bit stiff and couldn’t decide if they were artificial or not. So, should I have them in my garden…..?
