One from the archive….Polaroid Type 55

Just came across this in the studio from an old polaroid Type 55 neg. (fantastic film and much missed) Shot on a Sinar ‘Norma’ 5×4 believe it not – really a studio camera but I used to take it on the road sometimes…..

Scouse wit with roadsigns…..

starlings agatherin’

It’s that time of year again when the starlings gather around the UK in enormous flocks called ‘murmurations’ – whilst it is still an incredible sight the RSPB tells us not to be fooled by the big flocks:
“Despite the incredible size of the flocks, these numbers are just a fraction of what they used to be. Huge starling flocks used to gather over Manchester, Leeds, Newcastle, Liverpool, Edinburgh, Glasgow and Belfast, but you have a much better chance of seeing the birds in rural areas.”
“The starling population has crashed by over 70% in recent years, meaning they are now on the critical list of UK birds most at risk.”
“The decline is believed to be due to the loss of permanent pasture, increased use of farm chemicals and a shortage of food and nesting sites in many parts of the UK.”

Here’s a small show….

Gone to the dogs….

I’m not sure what’s going on, but I’ve found myself photographing dogs of late. No real plan and no real direction to it, I just seem to be seeing dog pictures everywhere: Paris, Liverpool, New York, Mumbai, Amsterdam…..
