Pattern on the Wall

Joseph/ June 17, 2013/ Uncategorized/ 0 comments

I like to get somewhat geometric shots when the opportunity presents itself. This row of doors was quite striking, and the cyclist passing by seemed to have noticed them too. Speaking of cycling, I wonder how many of you have realized by now that I do quite like photographing bicycles. For a collection of photos featuring bicycles, be they the

It’s been a while since I posted a somewhat graphical or semi-geometric photo to this blog, so here goes one. This was taken this afternoon while strolling around Berlin with a friend. Both of us were looking for picture opportunities. The first thing that captured my attention was the architectural detail in the background, which, by the way, really is

The Cyclist

The return of nice weather marks my return to street photography – in one of the best places for street photography you could hope for, at that: Berlin! I waited between half an hour and 45 minutes to capture this one, in the process prompting many to doubt my sanity, I’m sure. At least, from the confused expression on their

(One of) my favourite place(s) on the planet

Joseph/ February 21, 2012/ Uncategorized/ 0 comments

Ah well, simply looking at a mere picture of this place makes me want to go there and spend a couple of hours flipping through the pages of whatever book grabs my attention, which is precisely what I’ve done uncountably many times over the past couple of years.

The Call

Right. So basically you haven’t stopped asking for Oxford pictures. I have to admit that the last Oxford-themed photo was posted quite a while back; in fact, now that I check, it’s been over two months since the last one. So here’s an Oxford picture for you. Again, I’m afraid this one was taken a few weeks ago (alas, the

Those of you who follow this blog will know how much of a fan of mottled lighting I am. So here is a picture of this most beautiful of light falling upon a bike in Leiden on a quiet afternoon.

The Sheldonian

Every Oxford student begins and ends their journey here, at the Sheldonian Theatre. The official entry to the university commences with a matriculation ceremony in this place. Throughout their time spent in Oxford, they will surely have attended many debates, concerts and other events held in this most beautiful of Oxford buildings designed by Christopher Wren and built between 1664

Well, I am all too aware of how cliché it is to take a picture of a bicycle in Oxford with some famous landmark in the background, but hopefully you have not seen this angle before. I hope you enjoy!

Tom Tower

Joseph/ March 24, 2011/ Uncategorized/ 0 comments

Today, I present to you Tom Tower of Christ Church. This is a picture which is not so original in either subject or composition. But when the weather is fantastic, you’ve got to make the most of it and so I always end up snapping some pictures of subjects which I’ve already photographed before, simply because you never know if

The High Street on the eve of Spring.

Joseph/ March 20, 2011/ Uncategorized/ 0 comments

20th of March. One day until the official start of Spring. When it comes to the topic of weather and the seasons in the UK, I guess I would have been expected to submit some dull and grey picture of Oxford whilst I mumbled about how Spring is nowhere in sight. But lo and behold – the first signs of
