I remember when I first saw Ansel Adams' awe-inspiring images of Yosemite National Park. His unparalleled ability to harness the emotion within the subtext of black and white has, since that day, always motivated me to try and be a better photographer. So when I was in San Francisco there was no way I was … Continue reading Amateur Ansel Adams
This week and beyond I will be posting belated posts and photographs from my recent trip to San Francisco. Safe to say it was one hell of a trip for both my running and photography sides! Below is one of the plethora of images I took of the awe inspiring Golden Gate Bridge veiled in fog.
It is a rare and beautiful thing to fall in love. I must confess I have rather fallen for Marrakesh. Whilst buying a carpet -yes I went to Morocco and brought a carpet I’m a walking cliché- the shop owner, at the end of a lengthy and enjoyable barter, pleaded that when I returned home … Continue reading Magnificent Marrakesh
Shamefully I have been back from Paris for a few weeks now but haven’t really found the time to sit down and actually write about the experiences whilst in my favourite city.

It's that time of year again. This year has been a year of great adventures and days to never forget, which has resulted in a rather crazy concoction of music. Who knows what 2014 will hold and don't forget to subscribe to not miss out on anything else. So turn up the volume and I'll … Continue reading My 2013 – 12 months, 12 songs
New Year, new you? Wether you're stopping, starting, finishing or quitting we all begin the year with such high hopes for the better human we can be; a recreated self. The worse thing about making a New Year's Resolution is the inevitable breaking of it. I always live by the rule that resolutions kick in … Continue reading Midnight Strikes, Now What?
I was recently lucky enough to be my roommate for university's best-man at his wonderful wedding. I am debating about putting up the speech (don't know if he could face the whole world being able to read about his embarrassments) but for the time being here is the ring that he thee wed.
