I have just posted some of my photos from my year so far. Go have a look and I’ll buy you sweets.
The view from McDonalds on Fleet Street. on Flickr.
LONDON, UK. 17/04/2013. The funeral procession of former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher passing along Fleet Street on its way to St Paul’s Cathderal from Westminster Abbey. The coffin is being carried on a Gun Carriage drawn by the King’s Troop Royal Artillery along a processional route lined by around 700 members of the three armed forces.
Brighton West Pier.

My friend Rosanna investigates a colourful tree on the eighth floor of the OXO tower in London.
Possibly the most British moment in any film ever
Pret’s security got scarier. on Flickr.
I was sat at my desk today when the picture editor came to me and said there was an eagle in Pret a Manger. I went down, and she wasn’t lying. There was an eagle in Pret.
Here’s the proof.
Last Tuesday some chums and I went into London and were tourists for a few hours. We watched a bit of the triathlon and then went down to the Southbank, and into Royal Festival Hall where they have the most amazing book maze at the moment.
Here is a photo of Sara enjoying a book she found in the maze, in the maze…
Sometimes London is just incredible.
Whilst looking for somewhere to live for next year, we had a look at this place, it had the absolute best view of London, the Shard, Gherkin, Canary Wharf, Parliament, Battersea, Wembley, BT Tower, IT HAD IT ALL. But it’s already been sold. So we cried.
This photo really doesn’t do the view justice, so just take my word for it, It was stunning.
I did an Olympics on Flickr.
On Thursday night, Sara, Jono and I ventured to the Thames foreshore underneath the Millenium Bridge to watch the ‘SUPER SPECTACULAR LASER AND LIGHT SHOW’ to inaugurate the Shard. West Europe’s newest (and tallest) skyscraper, topping out at 1016ft.
We were all set for an evening of epic lasers and stuff, but what we got was about 6 lasers and a couple of spotlights. Wasn’t really worth all the effort, but it was a nice night none the less.
Today I ventured into the monsoon that is London to photograph the King’s Troop firing a 41 gun salute for the Duke of Edinburgh’s 91st birthday.
I got wet.
It was loud.
