Today I got the rare chance to have a look around the disused underground station Aldywch, originally called the Strand. Open in 1907 the Stand station was never fully completed and has served a number of functions up until its complete closure in 1994. Now used for filming and by the Emergency Response Unit for training, the London transport museum run tours for a couple of weeks each year. Wikipedia has some more information here.

Yesterday I had an amazing day at Sarah & James’s Wedding at the Thames Valley Lodge.
I have known both Sarah & James since University, although I wasn’t working at this wedding, I couldn’t resist taking along my EOS M and capturing some photos of the day.
We started at the Thames Valley Lodge in Staines-upon-Thames before jumping aboard the Southern Comfort which took us along the Thames to Laleham where we disembarked for the ceremony at All Saints Church. We then headed back the boat for the cruise back to the Thames Valley Lodge.
Here’s a quick slideshow of their day.
Congratulations again to both Sarah & James.

I’m out in the Charentes, France at the moment, staying near Aubeterre-sur-Dronne. The countryside is bristling with wildlife, so obviously I’ve spent the last week capturing lots of photos of all the little insects and animals. Here are a few that I’d like to share.

So yesterday I met a new friend and just had to bring her home, meet Kirbie.
(Expect plenty more photos over the coming months!)
