Photostream :- random pictures and ideas taken with a small cheap camera when I visit somewhere. Most people put this kind of thing on Facebook/Twitter/Instagram/etc. I decided to put it here so you can get higher resolution and more enjoyment from them without having to be on social media. Contact me here if you want to license any of these for print or any other uses


Like just about everyone else on the planet these days I take photographs all the time of all sorts of things. I thought some of these might provide enjoyment so decided to put them up. Any of them can be purchased cheaply as a print, fridge magnet, mug or whatever should you so desire by using the BUY buttons. So if you fancy a poster for your wall or smaller print for your desk you have the option. Otherwise just enjoy the views...

All the pictures are as "out of the (cheap) camera" apart from minor adjustments to exposure and contrast + occasional colour balancing. I view this stream of pictures as raw material some of which may or may not one day be turned into something more considered. All were taken with a small micro four thirds camera (not a DSLR). I like this format when out and about for it's compactness.

Photostream will be added to from time to time and eventually older stuff will be removed so not everything will remain here forever. This will save have to wade through tons of stuff. The galleries are shown below most recent first as far as makes sense.

Equipment Used:


Panasonic DMC GX1 Micro Four Thirds camera - this has now been long been replaced by the Panasonic DMC GX8 which is the more modern equivalent. However, for those on a tight budget very cheap GX1's can still be picked up on eBay.

York City Walls #1 - 14th May 2017

I decided to photograph walking around York's city walls. While I'd walked most of them before some segments I'd missed out previously so this was an opportunity to do the whole lot though as it worked out I did it in two parts. This part, which I covered first, is from Bootham Bar to Foss Island.

York City Walls #2 - 2nd July 2017

The second part of my walk covering York's city walls. Most of the walls are medieval in age - though some Roman remains still exist. This section of walk takes us from Monk Bridge to Lendal Bridge.

North Cliffe Wood - 30th April 2017

North Cliffe Wood is a nature reserve lying on sandy soils near the village of North Cliffe in East Yorkshire. It's a must visit when it's bluebell season as it gets carpeted with them. But a visit at any time of year always rewards with something unexpected.

York - 23rd April 2017

Walking around York's shopping area taking in the famous Minster.

Pocklington Canal - 9th April 2017

Pocklington Canal runs for 9.5 miles through nine locks from Canal Head near Pocklington in the East Riding of Yorkshire to the River Derwent which it joins at East Cottingwith. Most of it lies within a designated Site of Special Scientific Interest for it's wildlife and botanical interest. On this walk I covered the first couple of miles...

Hornsea - 2nd April 2017

A walk down the coast from Hornsea to Mappleton along Rolston Sands. Hornsea is a small coastal resort mainly famous for Hornsea Pottery (1949-2000 - no longer made there now). Around Hornsea can be found the natural lake, Hornsea Mere; as well as the lost or deserted villages of Hornsea Beck, Northorpe and Southorpe. I mainly like the beach though as it's usually deserted once you get beyond the town although it wasn't on this fine weather walk.

Lily and Sylvan Dale - 25th March 2017

Lily Dale is also known as Millington Wood and not far from the village of Millington. This is a 52 acre ancient ash wood set within a wolds valley. It is a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and one of the richest woodlands in East Yorkshire. There are records of this woodland going back to 1086 and the Doomsday Book. The wood was designated a nature reserve in 1991 in recognition of it's wildlife value and importance. The air was extremely fresh, clean and invigorating!
