the vacancy

mouse-over for before view. Welcome to our first blog of 2016, here's to hoping you, our Dear reader, had a good Xmas and New Year? 🙂 Just going through my old external hard drives and came across this Eastbourne shoot I've dipped into many times and was even lucky...

St Pauls

  One of my biggest regrets about having lived in London for almost 20 years is the fact that I never really did the whole tourist thing, never visited the Tower of London, Westminster Cathedral, Madame Tussauds, Buckingham Palace, Tate Modern, and finally St...
