  • A Year in the Life of Folkestone 2020

    A Year in the Life of Folkestone 2020

    Last modified: 3 days ago

    This is a community photography project, organised by Kent Creative Arts, and I am just one of many local photographers taking part. Wherever possible I have tried to link a specific event with each photograph or include a human element. I have followed government guidance with regard to social distancing as many of these photographs were taken during the height of the global pandemic. This album shows my contribution towards this project and will be updated each time I submit project photographs. All photographs are in chronological order.

  • Cyprus Delights

    Cyprus Delights

    Last modified: 2 years ago

    During more than 30 years of visiting the beautiful island of Cyprus I have taken several thousand photographs, using both film and digital cameras. This selection takes you from the centre of Cyprus to; the south, east, west, north and interior. I have included the north (known as the occupied territories) as I hope (and believe) that one day the island will be unified. In 2017 Pafos (Paphos) was one of two European Capitals of Culture with many events taking place. Subjects include: Flora, Fauna, Landscapes, Seascapes, Culture and Sports. I hope you enjoy what you see. Many of these photographs are now used in a fund raising illustrated talk for the Pilgrims Hospices, East Kent. From time-to-time I will continue to update this album (latest update: 5th October 2018).

  • Cats of Cyprus and Greek Islands

    Cats of Cyprus and Greek Islands

    Last modified: 2 years ago

    This collection of photographs has been taken mainly in Cyprus and spans many years and several visits. Unfortunately cats are still being abandoned but in Limassol (close to Akrotiri) there is a sanctuary run by very dedicated volunteers. We had the pleasure to meet Mary French (cover photograph) on several occasions (at the old sanctuary near Lady’s Mile Beach) where she was the driving force for cat's protection, but sadly she died on 30th June 2012. These images show some cats in the wild but most are taken in the sanctuary or in the grounds of hotels, restaurants or monasteries. This album is a tribute to the work being done by the Malcolm Cat Protection Society

  • WHAT A WASTE...

    WHAT A WASTE...

    Last modified: 2 years ago

    Pollution of the planet is an ever increasing cause for concern and although I have visited many beautiful places the amount of pollution caused by waste material is increasing, especially from plastic waste in the oceans.
    This selection of photographs (from 2010 to 2018) has been taken in Belgium, the UK, Cyprus (Republic and Occupied Territories), the Greek Islands of Kefalonia, Lefkada, Rhodes and in Croatia.
    Unless action is taken now the future is bleak!
