A Stolen Moment

September 23rd, 2009

When I was going through my photo albums sorting and choosing the pictures that would go onto my main website there were a number of shots that I enjoy immensely that nevertheless never made the final cut, for whatever reason.

Such as this stolen moment here.

I took this off one of the islands dotted around Abu Dhabi. I made a goodly number of pictures that day, but this is one of the small handful that speak to me.

I like the colours, play of light and delicacy of the unguarded gesture…

Up Close and Personal

September 5th, 2009


I’d been looking to try my hand at the world of close-up (macro) photography. So a few days ago I added a new piece of glass to my gear: a AF-S VR Micro-Nikkor 105mm f/2.8G IF-ED.

If you’re interested, you can find a review of the lens here.


I took it out for a test run after purchasing it. I must say, it’s rapidly becoming one of my favourite lenses – and for portraiture, too.

Here are some of the results from my first shoot with the lens.
