White Sails

I was wishing like mad that I had the Nikon with me as I could have done more with the white sails against the dark sky over The Solent. But I only had the iPhone.


Back to my favourite time of year for photographing the city with the lower sun creating long shadows across the higher parts of the city.

Using the new tintype set from hipstamatic.


Taken in the New Forest. On holiday and enjoying walks and a light camera bag consisting of an iPhone! Will post more as I go.




Well, my version of the moon which is really a porthole on a boat down in the harbour.  It has two men in the moon – the reflection of the top of my head as well as the scratches and reflections which provide a smiley face.



This was taken with the iphone of all things, while waiting for my partner to pick me up on the seafront. I could see this guy walking into a shot, which always gets my pulse going. Will I get the moment? I tapped on the screen and looked at the images long after taking them as the car pulled up in the car park just as the rain started to drop from the sky.

Lothian Road, Edinburgh, iPhone

This is my one, ongoing, coherent project that I am working on about Edinburgh and the way shadows fall on the city at certain times of year. And now is that time, when the low winter sun casts long shadows across the streets. I put a heavily processed version of this image on Tumblr, but having looked at both I prefer this simpler black and white version. It was taken using the  Hipstamatic app – GSquad ‘Lens’ with Claunch 72 ‘film’. It was taken fresh today and the original is slightly warmer toned than this so I took some colour out in Lightroom.

It was sub-zero on the street but I stuck around a specific area hoping something would come together. I took quite a few iPhone pics and also some on the Rolleiflex. I am looking forward to seeing how they come out but suspect they won’t have the impact that this one has. Just as I was about to head back to my desk, a guy in a long winter coat and trilby style hat walked into the frame, echoing the image on the poster.


This really was a grab shot taken on the iPhone as I was leaving my son at a halloween party. I gave it a bit of treatment in snapseed, a software app, which gave it a spookier feel. I like the way the marks in the concrete make it look like he had been scratching at the floor.

You can see more of my iPhone pictures at ayephonography.


The train was crossing the Forth Road Bridge when I saw the reflection of the woman sitting in front of me, so I discreetly ran off a few shots and the later tweaked them bit using Snapseed. The plain monochrome version works well but I liked the additional treatment here a bit more. It was taken with an iPhone.

I haven’t been taking so many photos recently, being busy with work, kids, allotment, etc, etc. It seems I am always trawling back through previous month’s images. This one was taken in April, which seems like last week!

Shooting with film I am always way behind the curve of taking picture and presenting it. Digital is so immediate that it almost insists that everything you do with it is in the now. This seems an entirely self-created pressure that I am sure has many selves around the world, but the process of looking back and developing content some time after the image was taken is very natural.

I like this because it fits with a theme that I can see running through my work, which is of individual figures set against wider landscapes.
