South Bank Spraypaint

Some more of my photos from the London trip, this time of the grafitti around the South Bank (if you look you can see the blurred skaters). Nothing ‘special’ about these, I just loved the colours which I think look better on film than they would have on digital, something about the way film captures images just, well, works…I think anyway!

Shot on Ultramax 400, Pentax MX with (probably) the Hoya 28mm lens

Five Photos of a Woman Drummer

A few weeks ago I was walking down Oxford St, heading towards Paddington, when I heard amazing drumming; on getting closer it became apparent that it was a young woman seriously getting her groove on. I headed over for a closer look and then realised that not only was it great drumming, it was a great photo opportunity. Check out her Instagram @ladybananamusic

I was shooting Kodak Ultramax 400 on my old Pentax MX, but it was a really sunny day so I managed to shoot at 1/500 or 1/1000 to freeze (more or less) the action. I really like the way these turned out, and while I didn’t see the bystanders when I was shooting, but they make a couple of these images.
