I have finally managed to go and see the famous Greyhound Dog racing in London/Wimbledon. I wanted to do this for quite a while and finally managed to go and take my camera. The races are usually held in the evenings, so I had to turn up my ISO to pretty much maximum making them quite grainy. The leading dogs look as if they are running on their hind legs…

Yesterday I had planned to take a photographic walk with a friend in London. As it became apparent that the weather situation was not in our favour, we have found the perfect place to spend some time with photography. The Victoria and Albert Museum in London has a lot of great objects which you can photograph and you are allowed to do so. I have added a few shots from the days adventures in my galleries, which even features some photographs of the worlds most feared creature. To view the gallery, please click the image below.
I have decided to participate in this years Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize 2010. The image below is my submission, which got into the second selection for the exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery, London.
The image title is: Tamara, a pefume addict. This image belongs to a series, which will hopefully be exhibited soon. I will keep you updated.
I decided to experiment a bit more with infrared photography and have taken this shot in Clapham Common Park in London today. I have used a long exposure of around 5 minutes to capture this shot. Since the sun was not too strong at the time, the photograph has some extra noise, but I think it just adds to the character of the image.
I had the pleasure to go on a helicopter sightseeing tour of London yesterday with the London Helicopter centre in Redhill Surrey. The trip was taken with a AS 350 Squirrel. With 140 mph top speed we reached London in just a few minutes to fly along the River Thames giving me some opportunities to make use of my camera. The weather could have been better, as most of central London was covered in mist, covering the glass of the helicopter. However I still managed to get some quite nice shots of famous locations such as Battersea Power Station, Houses of Parliament, London Eye and the City of London with its skyscrapers. I have added a few images to my galleries.
My wife Lara studies Nutritional Therapy and is working on her Dissertation Research Project, trying to evaluate general public awareness of and attitudes towards supplements and their usage and its correlations to general health awareness. I have helped to design her website and get a little questionaire online, so that anyone can participate anonymously. She is trying to get around 200 responses, so please feel free to forward her website to anyone who can spare a few minutes.
The results of the survey will be published on her website as well, so you will be able to see the results of your support. THANKS
