Mayfield Lavender Fields a 25-acre commercial site in Croydon Lane called Mayfield, is popular with tourists. This area was once famous as the Lavender Capital of the World”. From the 18th to the early 20th centuries the North Downs of Surrey, with its chalky free-draining soil, ideal for lavender growing, were at the centre of worldwide production of lavender. It was a very prosperous part of the local agriculture. Blue fields could be seen all over Mitcham, Croydon, Wallington, Banstead, Carshalton and Sutton.

London Tower Bridge bus passing

Just got back from a great London night shoot with my new toy a Nikon D800, but had to stop shooting as my battery ran out. Was supposed to be 5 or 6 of us but I ended up shooting on my own. I only have one FX lens a 50mm prime.. so expect to see lots of 50mm shots during the next few weeks 🙂

Wobbly bridge selective colour

Im used to doing these selective colour type effect the manual way in Photoshop where you just brush in by hand with layers. It’s very boring that way and tricky getting it right. While playing with OnOne Phototools 2.6 I came across this effect that I’d not seen before. It’s a little hit and miss as you need bold colours it can pick up easily but the skin/people option worked really well for this photo and so easy!

Ghosts of London blur

I generally spend a fair bit of time removing ghosting people from my photos but decided to go the otherway with this one. This is a nine exposure shot in London where it was very busy with people moving around.
