I’ve just uploaded the 18 daily diary photos from my recent trip to Turkey, to Blipfoto. Blipfoto is a photo journal which lets you publish one image each day. Photos must have been taken on the date they are uploaded against.
Here are all 18 photos. I will be uploading plenty more in due course, but I took well over 600, so they’ll need some sorting through first.

In 2010, I did a road trip from Las Vegas, Nevada, to Yellowstone National Park. Once at the park I stayed in the town of West Yellowstone, Montana. Whilst there, I took some photos which have duly been posted to Flickr.
Anyway, yesterday, I was contacted by Lisa from AllTrips.com, because they wanted to use my photo of the West Yellowstone Human Services Centre on their website, and I am happy to oblige.
This is one of a small group of lovely vernacular buildings in the centre of West Yellowstone. As a Londoner, to think that I travelled to this romantic-sounding place, Montana, and got to experience such awesome great American landscapes throughout the journey, well, it still blows me away. I really hope I can get back to that part of the world again one day.

Here are four photographs taken inside the Strand Underpass in London.
I went to have lunch with a friend today. He works in Bloomsbury and I was driving up from south London via Waterloo, so I crossed the river using Waterloo Bridge and then took the Strand Underpass to get up to Holborn and Russell Square.
I’ve taken photos as I’ve driven through this tunnel a couple of times before, and once again had my camera out today to shoot a couple more and I’ve posted them all here.
Something about this road tunnel just makes me want to take pictures.
The A301 Strand Underpass allows northbound traffic from Waterloo Bridge heading for the A4200 Kingsway to avoid the Strand and Aldwych. There is no equivalent southbound facility. The underpass utilizes the former Kingsway tram subway which closed for tram use in 1952. The tram subway was converted, and the underpass was constructed, by John Mowlem & Co and opened in 1964.

In December 2004 I went to Luxor in Egypt with my first digital camera, a 4.0 megapixel Canon Powershot A80. It was before I was serious about photography and I wasn’t that impressed with the results, mainly because I hadn’t developed my ‘eye’ and didn’t know how to make the best of them.
Eight years later, I’ve sorted through the photos I took then and found much that is interesting and have uploaded a load of new images to my Egypt set on Flickr.
See more of these photographs here.

Man-made Castle Hill in Brailes, Warwickshire, is a prehistoric burial ground that was used as the mound for a Norman motte-and-bailey castle. Brailes (spelled Brayles in early historical documents) is a civil parish about 3 miles (5 km) east of Shipston-on-Stour in Warwickshire, England. It comprises the two villages of Lower and Upper Brailes but is often referred to as one village as the two adjoin each other.

At the beginning of June I went on a week-long trip to visit some friends in Constance Bay, Ontario, Canada. These are a couple of iPhone 4S photos from the trip, and here is a set of all the photographs from the trip on Flickr.

At the beginning of February I went with my mum to a family gathering in Ösi, Western Hungary to celebrate my grandmother’s 95th birthday. It was pretty cold (at least -10C plus the windchill) so I stayed mainly indoors and took lots of photos and a few videos around the farm - in the house, the workshop, and around the back yard.

One of my photos of Petra, the ‘rose red city, half as old as time’ in Jordan has been published in the North magazine winter 2011/12 edition, 'the north of Scotland's premier lifestyle magazine'. It's the one on the bottom right, of Al Siq, the 1.2km long gorge that gives access to the ancient city.

Full photoset is here. There aren’t that many of them as I was at the beginning of my interest in photography.

I’ve just added a new playlist of the videos I made in Madeira earlier this year. There are 5 short films so far, and I may add one or two more in due course.
Cabo Girão is a lofty sea cliff located along the southern coast of the island of Madeira, in the Portuguese archipelago of Madeira.
A diamond-shaped sea-cliff escarpment ranging from 560 metres (1,840 ft) to 589 metres (1,932 ft) above sea level, Cabo Girão lies between two river-valleys that flow into the Atlantic Ocean. The escarpment/cliffs extend approximately one kilometre in length and the cliff reaches from approximately three kilometres between the urban sprawl of Câmara de Lobos and the river-valley of Quinta Grande...

This week I came across a couple of websites featuring my work, Analog: Radio: Transmission, and Flying High.
The first is a site called Analog: Radio: Transmission. The aim of this blog is to draw attention to the relentless technological advancement of 21st Century civilisation. The author states that the overriding theme “is to show our unyielding tendency towards progress, no matter what the cost. Like a child obsessed with what’s behind the only door that is locked in the creepy house or an adults temptation to press the ‘big red button’, we seem to just have to tinker and look to see what might happen.”
My video ‘Button’ has been used in this entry, and I think it is entirely appropriate and illustrates the theme of the site well. Kudos to Dr Analog.

Following a visit to Turkey in September, staying a week in Istanbul, and a week in Simena on the south coast, I have created sets of photographs and videos taken there.
Boats and scenery, Kekova-Simena
There are at least 300 photos (edited down from nearly 800) but I am still adding a few more as I go along - that stuff takes time! There are 9 videos in the playlist.

I’ve created a new set on Flickr of photographs I took on a recent trip to Dorset. I stayed in West Lulworth near the cove, on the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site in Dorset, southern England. The cove is one of the world's finest examples of such a landform, and is a tourist location with over 1 million visitors a year. Nearby is Stair Hole and the rock arch of Durdle Door, which I also visited and photographed.

I haven’t posted anything to this blog for a long while but I’ll remedy that now as I’ve added a couple of pages of photographs from a recent fantastically restful and beautiful trip to Sri Lanka and the Maldives.
I’ve got some video footage to sort through and I’ll post that in due course.
My tumblelog gets updated much more often
