Tips for Cyclists

Just some thoughts.

Print, read, comments let me know!

Cycling in London: Why cyclists cyle the way they do

Strictly non-photographic for once..

This is why cyclists cycle the way they do
(they are not necessarily trying to be arseholes)
(they are mostly trying to be survivalists)

Print, read, any comments let me know!

Yes, been told its quite long... but had lots to say and I may be known to ramble a bit.... have really cut it down too!

Southern California January 2010

Trip to Southern California: I went there to hang the Salton Sea exhibit in the La Quinta Museum (images of which are also on this site). I had the chance to visit the Salton Sea and was sad to say that quite a substantial amount of water had evaporated, so an image that I had taken in Spring 2008 of the three trees shows them surrounded by water, which was very different to what I saw this time.

Though am also happy to report that a rainstorm that happened shortly after the above image was taken, brought the levels of water back to a more acceptible level. I shall return in April to the same spot and see what has happened since.

Salton Sea, my favourite place to be.

La Quinta Cove; Old town La Quinta is surrounded by mountains on three sides;

Near Yucca Valley; got caught in a rain storm (one of many that week) trying to look at an old abandoned town; the rain makes the desert landscape turn to mud; sat in car peering out wishing it would stop momentarily and also unsure how I would make it back to town. Southern California roads are notorious for not being built for rain so mudslides and sudden floodings are quite common.

Twentynine Palms nightsky

Back in Orange; buildings are definately very cool!

Greece Christmas 2009

Here they are - just a few months late... sometimes these things take a wee while, and also being film-based photos, it did take a little while to get them processed.

It was so windy that water was washing over the harbour

Olive Tree in the Valley of Olives

Liked the innovative way of making ugly yet quite necessary concrete constructions look quite cool

My favourite Olive Tree in my grandad's garden. It is over 2000 years old and still produces olives.

The cemetary in which my grandad is buried, a beautiful spot.

Salton Sea exhibition, La Quinta Museum, California

My photo exhibition in La Quinta Museum, La Quinta, California on the Salton Sea - Visions Past and Present. Here's a walkthrough. The exhibition also includes historical photographs of the Salton Sea!

The images are of three different aspects of the Sea: the Wetlands, visitors and residents of the Salton Sea, and landscapes.

The exhibition runs until the 31st of March, so if you happen to be in Southern California, stop on by. And whilst you're there, why not drive by the Salton Sea? Its not far!
