Join me on a cycle ride through the Buckinghamshire countryside on a late August day.
Sometimes I have ridden to the end of the road and looked out upon the sea. In July 2023 I went the other way. After holidaying near the North Norfolk coast I cycled back into Norwich to catch the train home.
Much of my photography is made whilst out cycling on country lanes. As I ride along I have plenty of time to look around me, and one thing I notice are the “Slow” signs painted on the road. This is a meditation on the painted sign.
What always draws me to the Fens time and time again is the sky. Nothing grows taller than the trees so the overhead panaroma is almost uninterrupted.
A cycle ride in Dorset on Easter Sunday to hunt out the spirit of a place.
On a country lane in Essex a few miles south east of Chelmsford a lych gate stands amongst the trees. Behind the lych gate is an almost uniform set of gravestones which reveal a tragic story, but also a story of passion and devoted caring.
At Easter 2023 I spent a few days cycling in Dorset, exploring a few of my favourite places in the south of the county. Here is the first of a short series of articles on the each of the rides. On Good Friday I headed out east to explore some of the county’s literary and artistic associations.
The year has turned and we are all stepping tentatively into 2023. Before I travel too far into the new year I thought I would spend a little time looking back on the past year. This, therefore, is a short walk through each month of 2022.
I cycle; I stop; I photograph. A New Year’s Day ride to the corner of a quiet churchyard.
