I have been wanting to get some balloons, go to a nice open field and do this shot for the last few weeks but given the weather here (it was snowing last night!), it has been almost impossible to go out and take pictures without being frozen! I tried a few other ideas for the …

Another one from the Lumiere London Light Festival. The cinema kept changing into different colours and it was a nice backdrop against the busses whizzing past.
Another black & white – this time of the famous Eiffel Tower taken during a trip last year. It would have been amazing to have photographed this icon during the recent snow storm in Paris!

Another from the Disneyland Paris trip – this time a fire breathing mechanical dragon from the special 25th Anniversary Parade. A spectacular sight, the float measures 35 feet and is a steam punk inspired version of the dragon from Sleeping Beauty. Side note – I couldn’t get a shot of the actual fire from this …
