massaoke participant singing

Massaoke!

Massaoke is a simple idea. You get a live band You take a big screen, put song lyrics on it. You invite several hundred people along on a Friday night to sing. That’s Massaoke, and it is pretty amazing. Massaoke at London Riviera photographs

Elizabeth Walker and Alan Camberwell Arms London Summer 2016

Canary in Camberwell

Elizabeth and Alan. I love this shot! One of the most satisfying things in photography is when somethings just sings to you. This is one of those moments. London hit 33C today (it’s only 31C in the Amazon right now!). Everything is in slow motion. Everything is a bit crazy. …

White Kite

It’s 33C in London today. This guy has the right idea. Kite flying in the park with a 350 meter fishing line. He’s using the park information board for shade. Totally got this thing worked out. Top marks for doing summer properly.

Bar staff @ Frank’s Café

Frank’s Café and Bar in Peckham. Escaping the heat of the street and up on the roof of a multi-storey car park. Bold Tendencies put on installation art in the dystopian car park spaces. This is ‘proper’ London. Lovely staff. Great food. Amazing views. Frank’s Café website

St Paul's Cathedral

St Paul’s Cathedral

St Paul’s Cathedral is not my favourite building in London by a long shot. Despite being a Londoner, I’ve never even been inside. Something caught my eye this day. The light maybe. Whenever I look at Sir Christopher Wren’s building, I’m always left in awe of the size of the …

Tate Modern Millbank London from the new bit

Tate Modern from the new bit

New views of London. It’s the one thing welcome in the current belligerent construction regime of the city. From the new bit of Tate Modern. It’s an interesting building. Spacious and human, although I can’t say the restaurant looks much fun – a super posh Happy Eater without the chintzy …

St Paul's with amazing clouds and a taxi

‘Allo London

Those days when London peacocks it up and gives it’s best. The weather, the light, the clouds, the architecture… and the traffic of course.

The last puddle on the South Bank - puddle reflection

The last puddle on the South Bank

It’s officially summer in London. Amazing clouds and beaming sunlight. Londoners and tourists alike share the experience. The last puddle on the South Bank fizzles into oblivion… I rarely tire of London photos – even the clichéd ones, but it is satisfying to come up with something a little different.
