Gr8at: Good Grief Charlie Brown

I quoted Charlie Brown recently, with a photo from the very fun exhibition at Somerset House, Good Grief,Charlie Brown! But i just had to add some more to give you a sense of how great it was to see the Charles M. Schulz’s characters brought to life again.

Gr8at: #IceStatues at #WinterWonderland Part 1

I just love ice statues. Especially the ones in Winter Wonderland. They’re so creative and magical, with the lights adding that ethereal touch. Using 500 tonnes of sculptured ice and snow, this year’s theme was a wintry forest, filled with animals including wolves, unicorns and bears. In the first of two posts, please enjoy the display.

Gr8at: EPSON International Pano Awards: Previous Entries

After my last post on the EPSON International Pano Awards I wasn’t planning on doing another photography post. But it proved so popular I thought I should do another. But rather than just choose ones that hadn’t made the cut, I thought I’d choose my favourites from the previous years of the competition. They were so striking I cheekily added an extra one. Which one jumps out most at you?

Indeed, in its latest competion, over 1,251 photographers from over 74 countries were represented. Do you have a favourite?

Gr8at: Federer v Nishikori at the 02

I’ve always been a big tennis fan. I played a lot as a child and have been lucky enough to see most of the top players live. I’ve read loads of tennis books, including, of course, Open by Andre Agassi (review here). I’ve also been to the famous lawns of Wimbledon,  and even got a photo with the famous trophy. So I just had to go and see Roger Federer when he was in the Nitto World Tour Finals, an exclusive tournament for the best eight male players of the year. In the opening match of the London-based tournament, he faced Japanese star Kei Nishikori. But in a huge shock, the Swiss maestro lost 7-6 6-3.
