People of London, lets Stik together

By | September 18th, 2013|Photo of the week, What to do in London|

Lets Stik together hey?  London is a place of many people, many cultures and many beliefs, but that doesn't mean we can't all get along right? Despite my usual hit and miss spelling and grammar, my spelling of Stik in that opening line is with intent.  You see, somewhat out of character, I'm trying to [...]

Luna Park Melbourne

By | September 5th, 2013|Australia, Photo of the week|

Luna Park Melbourne was the first of five Luna Parks to set up in Australia.  Of the five, only the parks in Melbourne and Sydney remain. First opened in December 1912, Melbourne's Luna Park has been through somewhat of a torrid time ... evident in the strained/scary looking 'Mr Moon' face that houses it's entrance. [...]

Bansko – Instagraming from the top of a mountain

By | February 15th, 2013|Bulgaria, Photo of the week|

Bansko is a ski resort located in south west Bulgaria. You've probably heard me yapping on loads about it over the past few weeks. I went, I snowboarded, I filmed, I blogged, I instagramed and then I bombed your twitter feed with all of the above. You'll have done well to avoid it. Whilst in [...]

The Great Ocean Road and the 12 Apostles – Pic(s) of the week

By | August 31st, 2012|Australia, Photo of the week|

The Great Ocean Road or more to the point, driving down The Great Ocean Road is a must for any backpacker visiting Melbourne.  Hiring a car or taking a day tour is easy enough and also within budget so there are really no excuses. Shock horror, I didnt have the best of times in Melbourne. I know, blasphemy. [...]

A retro and tropical outdoor cinema in Grenada

By | August 3rd, 2012|Grenada, Photo of the week|

Grenada is a beautiful country and I took a LOT of photo's whilst there. But even with all the photo's I took of glorious beaches and stunning waterfalls, this photo of a simple TV remains my favourite from my two weeks on the Spice Island. It was taken on the porch of my girlfriends dad's [...]

The Houses of Parliament from the London Eye

By | July 4th, 2012|England, Photo of the week|

Last night whilst strolling through London, the mrs surprised me with a couple of tickets for the London Eye. She's a catch that one! Sods law, middle of July and its lashing with rain, but even when wet the London skyline still looks spectacular. This is probably the best pic I took.   Here you [...]

Grenadian Chocolate? … Oh go on then :)

By | March 9th, 2012|Grenada, Photo of the week, Photography|

Chocolate? ... yes please!  Grenadian Chocolate?  ... Oh go on then :) Photo of the week - Grenadian Chocolate So for my photo this week I pick a picture of something that most people probably wouldn't recognise at first glance, but I assure you, this is what your twirl, flake, dairy milk, ripple, aero, galaxy, yorkie, [...]

Paradise football pitch – Vorovoro, Fiji (Tribewanted)

By | January 11th, 2012|Fiji, Photo of the week|

I wish the pitches I play on every Sunday morning were a little bit more like this. Stockley Park has nothing on the Fijian island of Vorovoro. Whilst on Vorovoro I was part of an eco project called Tribewanted. I spent 3 weeks on Vorovoro and met the most amazing Fijian people. I was also [...]

Lake Rotoiti, South Island, New Zealand

By | November 9th, 2011|New Zealand, Photo of the week|

This weeks photo comes from New Zealands south island.  It was taken at Lake Rotoiti which is located between Nelson and Westport. Our Kiwi Experience bus didnt stay long at the lake, but just long enough to take some very atmospheric and eerie photos of the mist covered lake and surrounding area. It could easily [...]

A view from the Barrakka Gardens in Valletta, Malta

By | October 25th, 2011|Malta, Photo of the week|

I do love the photomerge function in Photoshop. By stitching together 6 or 7 different photos I was able to create this rather awesome widescreen shot. Taken from the Barrakka Gardens in Valletta, the lookout spot affords great views of the Grand Harbour where sea planes frequently take off and land.  There's also great views [...]
