Change of season?


Back in the park at 'my' spot, I wanted to mark another moment as time moves on or doesn't it? This has been a very long winter and if nothing else, this photo shows how the season seems frozen in time.

Over the clouds


When I took the photo I had not realized that this view was such a classic for me. I love sitting by the window in an air-plane, looking at the space, change of clouds and skies. Such peace and endlessness.

From above


Inspired by my street photography project, I took exploring anonymity and distance a step further, and, looking down onto a specific area, I observed how people walking in and out of my picture field created a flow, a pattern, a continuity.

Landscape


Set against the traditional houses on the river bank, the Millenium Bridge seems to float across the river and, set in another time, and with the new high risers emerging in the background creates a slight visual tension where traditional meets new designs.

Black and white



Over the winter I started a street photography project. Inspired by a William Klein exhibition in the Tate Modern, I have worked in pedestrianised areas around London, freezing the moment without giving it too much thought. I noticed that I became drawn to the anonymity of people passing by at a distance, almost blending into the landscape, forming a pattern within the urban landscape.

Royal skies


Looking up into the sky, with the dramatic clouds and the flags high, this image seemed to reflect the royal spirit of London which celebrated the Queen's Diamond Jubilee last year.

Looking down


Looking straight down onto London's streets I was amazed about how much detail I could make out. And how well it came out on a photo. The crossing gave me a point of interest I could focus on as cars came and went and buses drove by. A miniature world that did not seem to have much to do with reality.

London by night


Overlooking London, Vertigo 42 was one of the must-have-dones for me. Going up on a Saturday in winter, it was dark by 17.30 and the view over London was amazing. There is something amazing about night photography. Givng the world we know sparkle and a sense of irreality, as if it was a fairy tale.

Structures


Structures seem to be a recurring theme for me. I'm attracted and fascinated by the shades and shapes leafless trees make against the blue sky. At this time of year, when the sun shines directly on the bark, the light brings out the slightly greenish glow of the moss that covered the trees over the dark and damp months.

Chinese or Mc Donalds?


Walking along a little street in central London, I noticed the little Chinese take-away filled with steam. The steam condensating on the windows gave the shop a dream like appearance while the darkness allowed an imprint of the competition opposite.
