It is nice when you go out to take some specific pictures and
   you come home with an image that you did  not expect to get.
 This is an example, I went to Hyde Park to take more shots of the Serpentine Gallery Pavilion but
 was distracted by the Human Planet BBC Proms in the Park. This young lady was in the audience.

Crossbones Graveyard

Crossbones Graveyard, Red Cross Way, Southwark

Cross Bones is a post-medieval disused burial ground. It is believed
 to have been established originally as an unconsecrated graveyard

Brompton Cemetery

                   This large West London cemetery is a very interesting place and has the final
                   resting places of many famous people. It is a fascinating place for photography,
                   It is a very different place as the seasons change. It is a quiet oasis situated
                   between Earls Court exhibition centre and Stamford Bridge, the home of Chelsea
                   Football Club.

Himalaya 1981/2

The Everest massif as seen from Tengboche Monastery

                   These black and white pictures were taken with Rollei compact camera on
                   Ilford FP4 film which I processed at home after the five week trek. I trekked
                   from the foothills up to the summit of Kala Patthar at 5,545 m (18,192 ft).
                   This gave close views of Everest, Khumbu Glacier and base camp area. We
                   flew back to Kathmandu city from Lukla airstrip situated at 2,860 metres (9,383 ft),

One of the many families encountered in a foothills village.
