30 imagesI was born and grew up on Merseyside and feel that where you grow up becomes part of you - I always feel more comfortable when I'm back. The Scouse psyche is something I understand from the inside out - the open-ness, matter-of-fact warmth and sharp edged wit, something to enjoy being immersed in. This ongoing collection of observations is a celebration of both place and people, gathered with unsentimental affection.
19 imagesWhat remains of the once great royal hunting forest of Sherwood is still home to over 600 oak trees that began life in Elizabethan times: there is still sufficient off-path space to be all alone with nothing but trees, on land that has been undisturbed since the end of the last ice age. Several oaks preceded the arrival of the Normans, though some are just gaunt reminders of the majestic giants they once were.

This ongoing project is an attempt to address this imbalance, by showing the beauty that lies above us whatever the weather and wherever our location.
