Photo 'A' Week - January 2003
Back to work before the New Year and a wet afternoon was spent shooting shots of the sales in Oxford Street. Click here and here to see two shots on BBC News Online. Leica Digilux 1
Lydia with all her Christmas presents, I've no idea how we'll find room for it all. Leica Digilux 1
New Year was spent with Uncle David, Auntie Vicky and baby Oliver. A fun time was had by all.
The first day back and I'm off to the floods in Sonning. Provided with waist high waders I don't think I gave the locals much confidence. Click here for the launcher to the story. Nikon D1 / 28-70 2.8D AFS
I'm shooting all the images for the new website for the Ten O'clock news. Left is Fiona Bruce one of the presenters. Click here for website. Nikon D1 / 85 1.8D
I managed to fall off my bike on the way to the station this week, a few broken teeth and six stitches in my chin to close the hole. Ouch. Nikon D1 / 85 1.8D
A snowman in West London. Leica Digilux 1
Once again the ducks are in need of food. This time though the lake is frozen so we are treated to the site of them trying to stand. Leica Digilux 1
Another student event. This time the NUS gathered to decide on it's reaction to the governments proposals on fees.
An Army media day near Colchester. A chance for the military to show they are ready for the Gulf. Worrying times and a somewhat surreal experience as soldiers and kit ran this way and that as directed by the large contingent of press photragphers and camera crews. Nikon D1 / 28-70D AFS
I'm trying out a Nokia phone that has a built in camera to see if it could be useful for journalists out on stories - here a couple of results. It's not too bad once you scale the images down, but at full size they are appaling. Nokia 7650 Mobile Phone
A day trip to Belfast this week where I snapped a quick picture of the City Hall. I was lucky to get back home as the flight into Stansted was somewhat choppy and heavy snow the following day closed the airport for 24 hours. Leica Digilux 1
Snow! Lydia's first experience - she was not impressed. Leica M6 / Nikon F100
