There have been a number of protests going on in London this week, organised by Extinction Rebellion, a climate change activist movement.
Protestors have brought one of the capital’s busiest intersections, Oxford Circus, to a standstill.
These are a selection of photos I took at the site of the demonstration.
It’s been far too long since I picked up my camera and took any photos. I started a new job about 18 months ago and it’s pretty much consumed my life ever since. So, to restore some balance, I booked myself on to an Open-City London Architecture Tour, which took place today.
After taking the earlier photo of a spider waiting in the centre of its web, I went inside for some lunch.
When I went back into the garden, I discovered the spider had prepared its lunch too!
We have some friends from Australia staying with us at the moment. Yesterday, we took them on the London Eye, a giant Ferris wheel on the South Bank of the River Thames. We boarded our capsule as the sun was setting. The sky and lighting were quite dramatic.
I recently took some food shots for a wonderful little sushi restaurant in London. It’s called Pop Art Sushi and it is both a sushi bar and an art gallery.
Continuing my series of old Pride photos from 2004, to mark events in Orlando this week, this is a photograph of gay police officers who were taking part in the march that day.
Recently, I had been looking back through my archive at the photos I took at the start of the Pride parade in London in 2004. It was such a wonderful morning. Everyone was in such high spirits and so open to having their photographs taken.
In light of the terrible news coming out of Orlando today, I have decided to publish a photography from my Pride archive every day this week. I know it’s not much, in the face of the senseless tragedy that has occurred there, but I just want to do something to counteract the hatred that can exist in the world.
