A weekend away in Oxford

A few weekends away I went to Oxford for the first time, and absolutely loved it as a city. Of course my trusty camera was with me and I've made an album on flickr of my photos.

Its been far too long!

I haven't written a blogpost for ages and ages now, so maybe its time I get back on it.

The show on Brap.fm is still going on, so why not bring the latest installation as a new post, August 2015. A selection of my slowly growing reggae vinyl.

Scraps from the internet: 1940's British Propaganda Films

The British Film Council have upload British Propaganda Films from the 1940's. These should make a really interesting watch, and I think there's about 100 of them in total.

Vimeo Link

The Land of Invention is the only one I've look at so far, but I'll certainly be getting involved in the others when I get a chance. Props to Elbows at Urban75 for the share.

Scraps from the internet: Photos from 70's & 80's New York

So this got posted up on one of the forums I use daily, and I thought they were great. Photos from New York in the 80's and 70's. Now I'm way too young to have visited New York in that era, but I have been in the last few years. Its mad to think how much it seems to have change. I absolutely love it as a city and can't wait to go back, but looking at these photos its crazy to think how much of a different time it was thirty years ago.

Some of the photographers are listed on the page, but not all images are credited.

Photographs: 2 Week tour of Japan

So, at the end of April I went on a tour of Japan, covering Tokyo, Kyoto, Takayama, Hiroshima and a few other day trips out. Its been a long while coming, but I've finally edited all my photos and uploaded. I have to say I absolutely adored Japan, its a strange country, but at the same time not too disimilar to the UK. I definately want to go back, certainly to spend more time in Tokyo. All images were shot on my new Nikon D800 that I bought just before going away, and Japan was the first real test. If it can serve me as well and for as long as my D200 did (well still does, I'm keeping it for festivals etc), than judging from my first experience, I'm really going to love my D800 A couple of shots:

January since my last post? How appalling! The good news is we've started up a monthly show, the first saturday of every month on www.brap.fm, our first show was in may and its now in the archive to listen to here We had a couple of technical hitches, but we're trying to iron those out for the second show on the 3/4/2014 3-5PM BST. I've also just got back from Japan, so I'm sure Ill have some photos to post up soon.
