1950s Pin Up on Flickr.

I love the 1950’s glamour style - that painted effect and exaggerated makeup so common to the period. You can often find great examples of these painted on WW2 aircraft.

This was a project piece I had a play around with - I’m really pleased with the finished effect.

City of London Skyline on Flickr.

One of my favourite views of London, from Waterloo Bridge towards the City of London. Looking the other way, you would have the London Eye and the Houses of Parliament. I don’t think there’s any spot in London where you can see more world-class landmarks in one go.

Abandoned Shops on Flickr.

Following on from my previous post, I don’t really consider myself a “street” photographer. I suppose I feel like I need a purpose in my photography, and wandering around ‘documenting’ everyday life just isn’t enough in itself for me.

That being said, from time to time I quite enjoy it. These shops are located on Frith Street, one of the main thoroughfares of Soho, and perhaps in a sign of the times, have been abandoned for many months now. I doubt people will be looking back on my work in the years to come and considering me as a social commentator, but here - for once - is my attempt. Read into it what you will.

The Cut on Flickr.

This is a simple Hipstamatic shot - a gadget I have great fun with when I remember that I’m actually carrying it. I like the documentary feel you can achieve with it, even though I feel like I’m just snapping my immediate surroundings.

The Cut is just around the corner from Waterloo Station. I walk through it quite regularly. It’s an odd mix of council housing with posh shops - and it is gradually becoming even more gentrified and exclusive. The Old Vic lies at one end, while Blackfriars Road is at the other.
