Following hot on the heels of yesterdays post about The Red Arrows comes another Air Show favourite, the Vulcan. The Vulcan was the final aircraft to display at the Weston Air Festival this weekend and, just like The Red Arrows, the display was in bright sunshine and a little cloud.
From a photography point of view having bright sun behind the subject means that a lot of photos come out like silho...
Today is the summer soltace, the longest day of the year, and so it seemed a good day to escape the stresses of life for a while and head to the Weston Air Festival for a bit of daylight. I didn't have time to spend the whole day there, so just popped along to photograph The Red Arrows.
For anyone who doesn't know, The Red Arrows are the Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team and can be found putting on a...
Over recent weeks I've been a regular visitor to Weston General Hospital, which seems to have become home to a family of ducks. A few weeks ago a some ducklings appeared, and for each of the last four Sundays I've managed to photograph them and see them grow up.
It's been wonderful to see how quickly they've grown, I hope the four photos below give you a sense of this.
I'm not sure when they'll be ...
Each year the Gadget Show Live event takes place, here in the UK, to show off the current and future consumer technologies. 2014 marked my third visit to Gadget Show Live, and it was a great opportunity to take my camera along to get a few photos for the blog.
Gadget Show Live is a spin-off of The Gadget Show TV programme. Although I’m not a regular viewer these days, I have previously appeare...
From recent blog posts you’ll probably have guessed that Just 10 Photos is based near Oxford, England. Oxford is magnificent – apart from its’ world famous university and tourist attractions, it’s a very photogenic place, has some great restaurants and bars, and has a very active Twitter community.
One of my longest and best Twitter friends is Becca Chaplin (@Ox_Bex), we've previously organised a ...

Good to see Cropredy Marina asking people to observe Just 10 Photos!

Last weekend, after I’d visited the World Pooh Sticks Championships, I went on to the Pendon Museum. Pendon is just five minutes drive from the Pooh Sticks site and houses three large miniature landscape scenes, a small shop, and a tea room.
The museum was founded in the 1950s by Roye England, and although I’m new to the world of modelling the thing that makes it stand out to me is the attention t...
Anyone who grew up in the UK probably did so with tales of Winnie The Pooh, A. A. Milne's teddy bear with a thing for honey. I'm sure the stories have travelled far beyond the UK too. As well as the Winnie The Pooh stories, there's game called Pooh Sticks... it's a simple game where you drop sticks into a river from a bridge, and the one who's stick flows first to the other side is the winner.
Wh...
2014 marks one hundred years since the start of The Great War (World War One), and so a couple of weeks ago was a good time to visit The National Memorial Arboretum. I'd visited a couple of years previously, and nearly froze in the process, this time it was much warmer in the spring-like weather.
The National Memorial Arboretum in Staffordshire is the UK's centre for remembrance. It's 150 acres o...
Anyone that knows me knows that as well as photography I have a passion for cars, and in particular Mazda MX-5s, the small Japanese two-seater sports car. 2014 marks 25 years since the MX-5 was first released, and 20 years since the UK MX-5 Owners Club was born too.
I’m currently on my third MX-5. My first was a pristine silver 1999 (mk2 generation) MX-5, which I bought in 2007. I didn’t know mu...
Sometimes my holidays in north Wales coincide with the Wakestock wakeboarding and music festival. Wakestock is not as mainstream as the big UK festivals, like Glastonbury, Tea in the Park, or Reading and Leeds, but I’m sure no other festival is set in such a lovely location with easy access to the beaches and the sea.
The Wakestock festival site is between Abersoch (where I stay when I’m in the ar...
It's been a few weeks since I last blogged some photos - I've been away on holiday in north Wales, and the next few blog entries are about that trip. North Wales is a beautiful part of the world, with a rugged mountainous terrain which drops to some stunning coastal shorelines; an ideal place for photography.
I've been to north Wales many times and have experienced the rainy climate the mountains ...
When I first got into 'serious' photography, I bought a DSLR camera and did a couple courses run by Oxfordshire County Council Adult Learning. These covered all the basics at the beginner and intermediate level. I then signed up for a third course of ten lessons aimed at building a portfolio for an exhibition.
The exhibition, called Lightscape, ran over a weekend in June 2010 in Witney, Oxfordshi...

After weeks of playing with various blog settings, the 1st June 2013 seemed like as good a date as any to write my first blog. And what better to subject for my first blog than the wedding of two of my friends, Andy and Ellie, or Mr and Mrs Little.
Andy and Ellie got married on 4th May (or 'May the fourth' as the Star Wars fans, like Andy, would say), at Caswell House in Oxfordshire. The weather ...
