Tipton Canal and Community Festival in pictures

Tipton Canal and Community Festival (6)

I photographed the Tipton Canal and Community Festival on Sunday. It’s organised by the Tipton Community Association and features stalls and a fun fair as well as the colourful narrow-boats. The weather was quite cloudy, as usual… (more…)


Photography: Camera settings

The White House

Photography: Out in the Black Country

The River Tame
