A Series of Ups and Downs

The South West Coast Path is largely just a series of ups and downs. So many in fact that once you have completed the 630 miles of path you could have scaled Mount Everest four times! The path is often described as strenuous with certain sections featuring repetitive ups and downs. Any height that is painfully gainedContinue reading “A Series of Ups and Downs”

The Mysterious Linnahall

The following was written roughly four years ago after my first visit to Linnahall. Slowly decaying on a small section of Tallinn’s coast is Linnahall, an old sports and concert venue built in 1980. The venue was built as part of the Olympics that took place in Moscow in the same year. At this timeContinue reading “The Mysterious Linnahall”

Have you Met Verity?

Next week I hope to continue my photographic journey along the coast path and pick up where I left off last October. In the meantime I wanted to share one of the highlights from my last trip that came in one of the most unlikeliest of places. I was walking into Ilfracombe along the coastalContinue reading “Have you Met Verity?”

The People you Meet Crossing the Nullarbor

After two days driving across the Nullarbor Plain and a night sleeping in the car, we had arrived at the first real sign of civilisation, Norseman. Here we were able to find a campsite and enjoy the comforts that we had been missing since Adelaide. It also gave us the chance to meet and talkContinue reading “The People you Meet Crossing the Nullarbor”

To the south lies the Great Australian Bight, an area of unique natural beauty and diversity, and to the north the Great Victoria Desert. I knew very little about the Nullarbor before a friend asked if I wanted toContinue reading “The Endless Emptiness of Crossing the Nullarbor”

Oxford was my first day trip of the year. Its university is well known and brings people from all over the world to the city. With the growth of Oxford University buildings were needed, many of which date back to its early beginnings. There are examples of many different architectural styles but I was thereContinue reading “Brutal Oxford”

The unique design involves two L-shaped towers connected at the top and the bottom to form a continuous structure. At its tallest point the building is 234m high with the two towers connectingContinue reading “CCTV Building”

Crossing the Nullarbor

Over the last few weeks I have been working on something I have been trying to bring to light for ten years. In 2009 I crossed the Nullarbor in Australia by car, a stretch of desert crossing South Australia and Western Australia. We would be driving for three days, 1200 km, through an unchanging landscapeContinue reading “Crossing the Nullarbor”

Järvenpää Church is located in the Finnish town of Järvenpää, 40km north of the capital Helsinki. The church was designed by the Finnish architect Erkki Elomaa and construction was completed in 1968. Though the outside is brutal in nature the inside is furnished in wood and has room for over six hundred people. Järvenpää ChurchContinue reading “Järvenpää Church”
