A shot of the Buzludzha monument, one of the most striking buildings in Bulgaria. Built to commemorate the formation of the Bulgarian socialist movement, it’s now abandoned, neglected, and for the most part ignored.
A shot of the (not quite so) eternal flame at Shipka Monument, originally lit to commemorate the 1877 battle for the Shipka pass: fought between the Russians and Bulgarians and the Ottoman Empire.
It’s been a while since I posted anything new on the photoblog so I thought I’d add this one: shot last week when we visited the Shipka Monument.
The end of the old pier at St. Annes.
Shot in Hong Kong, during the protests in 2014.
Shot back in 2012, this was a long exposure taken just after sunset. As you can see, if you take a look at the original, I processed this one to bring out the detail on the horizon and in the rather unusual clouds.
Another shot from our recent Venice Carnival Photo Tour, shot on the way back from Burano.
Dragging the shutter at dawn. Shot at San Marco, during our Venice Carnival Photo Tour.
I’m not entirely sure I can tell you why I like this shot as much as I do, but it’s one of my favourites from our recent trip to Venice.
Rules are meant to be broken every once in a while.

Shot in Manchester, near Thomas Street in the Northern Quarter.
