London Cartel International Auto Show – South of England Show Ground

DSC_0393Cars have always been a big part of my life since I have been old enough to drive. They have provided me with a bottomless bucket to throw any disposable income into, they have caused me stress, blood, sweat and swearwords...They have also brought me much joy and enabled me to learn a lot of home mechanics and feel accomplished that I can take on practical challenges using these skills.

Oxford

DSC_0653 About an hour from Ealing is Oxford - famed for its impressive university buildings. The area has a notably different vibe to that of your typical university town and understandably so, its home to some of the world's most intelligent minds.

London Classic Car Show

DSC_0595 I took a day of my half term to spend with my 6 year old nephew at London's Classic Car show at the ExCell Centre in London's Docklands. He's recently found an interest in cars and seemed to have a slight obsession with modern Lamborghinis and McLarens. I was hoping to help influence him towards the beauty of old cars and classic engineering.

Brighton

DSC_079922 In a school break I try to get away on holiday, however this half term I spent 3 days on my back repairing my car so wasn't able to go away. I still wanted to be beside the seaside so I took a trip down to Brighton.

Lambing Season – Bocketts Farm, Dorking

DSC_061422 copy22You're never too old for a farm visit. A trip to Bocketts Farm in Dorking, Surrey allowed me to capture some photos of lambing season. Taking photos of animals can be tricky as they rarely sit still and often interfere with the 'perfect shot' that I have spotted through the viewfinder. However, I love trying to capture the animals' personalities in the photographs.

Parklife

DSC_002322 With a trip to Switzerland in the Easter holidays I am hoping to capture some really wide landscape shots of the Swiss Alps and valleys. The lens has a 180° angle so it can capture a vast landscape.
