Beautiful morning for a paddle. Ice on the boats, but worth the cold fingers!

Paper tests. If you still miss rummaging through the stationery in Woolworths, pay a visit to Shepherds Bookbinders in Victoria. More paper stocks than you can dream about! Uncoated and not meant for inkjet printers, but some produce lovely soft-tone monochrome images. But make sure you test ;-).
Brentford Dock, Prunus cerasifera, Brentford Ait, Kew Bridge and Syon Reach. Recent additions to the Drawing Dark Waters project. (click on Projects menu for full set of images).
Interesting to see where and how your images are used. A new book cover next to the original….taken around 1997. ‘The Devil and Sherlock Holmes’ by David Grann.
Great to see this image of Twickenham Bridge used on a book cover. Originally monochrome, an interesting new interpretation.
An edit of Drawing Dark Waters images – walks along the Thames 2018.
Rev Richard Coles, presenter on BBC Radio Four’s Saturday Live, once described the plastic bags suspended along the roadside on his drive home as looking like “Unfortunate wraiths snagged in trees”. Sadly a common feature along the River Thames. More ‘wildling’ trees along the Thames footpath near Mortlake. A ‘wildling’ Plane tree growing out of the cobbled embankment along the River Thames between Chiswick and Kew.
The corner of my mum’s plant hospital. Apparently I won the large cactus in the middle at a school summer fair when I was about 8 years old. It was ‘confiscated’ as I didn’t look after it. Monstera deliciosa or cheese plant. London Plane tree – high tide, overlooking Vauxhall Bridge.

Nice to see Tate Modern using one of my River Thames photos for an event poster. Called Ten Days Six Nights, the event is being held between 16th and 25th March and incorporates performance, film, music and sculpture. The original photograph was taken at Mortlake, towards Kew Rail Bridge.
