Spring, unsprung


You wouldn’t believe this was taken in London, ever, or that it was taken at what the meteorological calendar considers to be the start of Spring.  Still, here’s a view from one of the stairwells of Great Ormond Street Hospital – so proof that yes we do get snow sometimes, and that yes I do take the stairs instead of the lift!  It also happens to be the first time I’ve posted an image to this blog made with my ‘phone (OnePlus 3T) – I really don’t like using mobiles as cameras but with a bit of help from Snapseed, this one came out quite nicely.  I still don’t want to admit it though – I take comfort from using something more like a camera even if on the inside it’s probably mostly a computer (more like a ‘phone).

Hertfordshire-based, I work for the National Health Service but try and fit in some photography on a regular basis. Not so much during the recent lockdown era, but here's hoping things can only get better in 2021....

Its interesting Jon, quite right that a phone is a computer …but a Fuji is a …… computer ! I think that just shows that for me at least the way a camera allows you to take a photograph is bizarrely almost as importantbas the result. Trust you are well. My daughter now in the smoke in Streatham … would be good to meet. Are you based at Guys? T


Hi Tom – great to hear from you. Would be great to see you if you’re down here… I work at Great Ormond Street but live near your daughter, in Herne Hill, so central or SE London works well. Cheers, Jon
