  • Festival Fun at the Hop Farm

    Festival Fun at the Hop Farm

    A little visual recollection of the Hop Farm Music Festival in Kent, not so well known yet but showing some serious promise. The Hop Farm Music Festival takes place in a 90-acre field just outside of Paddock Wood Kent in the South East of England. It came about because the general feeling was that people were a bit sick of over branding and they really wanted a smaller scale gig that was about music and not sponsorship and brands. There is no special treatment there and children are welcome - and those under 12 years of age get in for FREE!

    London's Beaches

    Londoners do have access to a beach, in fact quite a few of them but they are not the usual golden sands and shingle of our British coastline. At certain points along the banks of the River Thames, when the tide goes out you will find little patches of heaven.

    The Pinhole Blender Mini 35mm

    A pinhole with a difference, if you like your images with a twist then this is for you. Singles, doubles, blends and panoramas all are possible with this little wonder. Small cylinders will not look the same again and straight forward pinholes will seem boring!

Jerry is a modern treasure hunter, who bends over backwards to help you find that special item.

    The Crystal Palace Sydenham (London)

    As you enter the park from the Anerley Hill entrance, the faded grandeur that was once the site of the reconstructed Great Exhibition of 1851 spread out before you, an expanse of neglected but still loved stone, archways; grand staircases and overgrown esplanades. Some statues still remain but only one is whole, this looks east toward Penge and Sydenham and the distant boroughs of London and the county of Kent.

    The Old Royal Observatory (London)

    Greenwich park, a world heritage site was the first of the Royal parks, covering 73 hectares, which is an awful lot! It is situated on a hilltop with impressive views across the River Thames to Docklands and the city of London. Behind it lies the open expanse of Black heath. The site is also a grade 1 listed landscape and a site of  Metropolitan Importance for Nature

    Greenwich Park, London

    I love this park, it's so big you can easily spend a whole day just  exploring one small corner of it, in fact I don't think I've ever  managed to discover all of its hidden delights, there are too many secluded areas, enclosed gardens, ancient trees and very steep slopes to roll down. These are obviously great fun at certain times of the year, if we ever have snow again!!

    Haynes Lane Market

    I have loved this market since it started up way back when..I lived in the area and it was great to have somewhere to rummage! it was intimate and felt like you would always come away with a treasure or a bargain you'd been searching for a long time.You feel like a magpie in a jewelry shop, a delight at every turn.

    Holga 120 WPC

    Easy to use and hold no viewfinder, ultrawide panoramic image, versatile framing a typical Holga. Imagine your well loved Holga going through a mangle and what comes out is a sort of strange comic version of the original but twice the width. A recent addition to the ever growing world of Holga this fills another gap...a very wide one.

    Dune De Pilat

    What an incredible sight, as you stand at the base of the Dune after walking through all the touristy stuff. The heat is amazing and its so bright, it spreads out before you like a wall of sand. A staircase seems to grow out of the Dune so you can attempt to climb it without feeling like you are crossing the Sahara, of course climbing what appears to be a vertical staircase in the heat is not easy work.
