Waiting, just waiting

We spend much of our lives waiting. Waiting for buses, trains, the light to change, for something to happen like the lights going out on the grid of an F1 race and waiting for the end of whatever it is we have been waiting for. I certainly spend more time than I ought to waiting […]

Of schools and other stuff

St Ives harbour low tide 50 minutes before sunrise

I have been away. I am now back albeit somewhat jaded having spent a week in St Ives (Cornwall). Now, sometimes it takes me a while to cotton on to the ways of the wily (as in coyote) and the penny dropped when Mrs O was in need of a Cornwall fix, she likes a […]

Learning and the passage of time

Felixstowe docks at dawn

Just about 5 years ago next week I walked, if not bounced, through the doors of University Campus Suffolk to start the degree course I ought to have started in 1973. I have spoken about this before and the fact that I could not have produced the degree project I made in 2014 in 1976 […]

The show must go on

Bumping into Kate Jackson on Friday night made me realise I had been neglecting my ongoing Edgelands work. The Spring and Summer has been far too wet and windy for the Large Format gear so I extended my parameters and began shooting some images digitally. Regular readers will know that if it is dry in […]

Blue, today’s colour is blue

All of a sudden we have gone from Arctic conditions to typical British summer weather in about 48 hours. The wind is still from the North but what blue skies we get with a polar blast? The clarity of the skies and the blueness is something I tune into at this time of year before […]

PhotoEast and Contradictions

PhotoEast opened today. It is primarily based on and in the environs of the Wet Dock in Ipswich – signature setting for the long term CONTRADICTIONS documentary based on the ever changing aspects of the docklands of the Orwell. Bill Jackson is running sessions at The Cut in Halesworth. If you have dog, get down […]
