Pont de Bercy
Canon A2, 20mm, f/13, 1/40s, ISO 125
Film: Ilford FP4+
The Pont de Bercy is a very visible landmark in Eastern Paris, since it crosses the Seine along the famous modern building that hosts the Ministry of the Budget. But few people know that under the bridge is a bike track with wonderful columns on the sides…
Cashless in Cobacabana
Canon 7D, 32mm, f/5.6, 1/640s, ISO 100
Cobacabana in Bolivia is a small city by the shores of lake Titicaca that is famous for the church of Our Lady of Copacabana. Poverty there though is as visible, if not more than it is anywhere else in Bolivia, and even on the wholy grounds you see many women begging. Heartbreaking… I don’t normally do much colour street photography, but in this case the contrast between the bright colors and the misery seemed to call for a colour treatment…

Shanghai’s Pudong, though not very representative of Shanghai is an impressive architectural mass, and seen from the Bund opposite it’s quite a photo opportunity. I did a whole series that evening, and will be publishing a few more in the coming weeks.
Chatting on the Stairs
Canon A2, 50mm, f/8, 1/250s, ISO 125 (Ilford FP4+)
As I was walking around Trinity College on this gorgeous sunny day last June, I saw these students chatting and reading textbooks on the stairs of one of the buildings, and despite the somewhat unseemly garbage bin I decided to shoot. I’m glad I did, there’s an interesting imbalance in the symmetry of the shot that I find quite appealing.

I have a fascination with doors. This is a door from Trinity College in Dublin, shot on Ilford FP4+ film.
Lady in Red
Canon A2, 20mm, f/8, 1/1000, ISO 400
This is one of my favourite shots from a roll I took in early July in London. This is film, more specifically Fuji Pro 400 color film. I rarely do color film, but I really like that particular film and love the results.
One of a number of shots of the new highest skyscraper in Europe.
On a beautiful winter day I walked with my sons to the Sacré Coeur in Montmartre and took a lateral shot which I quite like. i gave it an old timey processing without overdoing it for what I hope is an interesting but not too classic postcard look.
