The Colour of Notting Hill Carnival

Posted in General, People, Travel at 10:08 pm by Warren Williams

The streets of Notting Hill, North London fill with a million revellers every year, marking the second largest street carnival in the world. The carnival route covers three miles of Notting Hill streets, show casing wonderful costumes from mostly the Caribbean.

Time for reliving the past, with a visit to Chessington, the first time since 1989. Some of the original rides are still here, such as the Runaway train and log flume, but no sign of the gorilla that terrorised me as a boy! đŸ˜›

Smelly breath?

Met up with a couple of friends from New Zealand, one of whom had just arrived here a week ago – and decided to show her around some of my favourite places.

Brick Lane, London

Brick Lane is often referred to as Banglatown, being the heart of the Bangladeshi community. Featuring markets, street sellers, and plenty of good food, it was a great location for another facebook group photography meetup.




Lightning Storm

A large lightning storm struck London creating a spectacle over the skies. With a lack of a nice foreground, had to make do with the surroundings outside my house by Danson Park in South East London.

Only shot from within Danson Park (would have liked to get to the lake for some reflections, but was promptly locked out by security)

Love – Darren & Beatrix

Posted in Birds, People, Travel at 11:32 pm by Warren Williams

Darren’s a fellow photographer and friend, and drove himself and wife, Beatrix, along from London to the East coast of Kent – Broadstairs, followed by white cliffs of Dover. The weather was rather gloomy, so rather than shooting the intended landscapes, focused more on them as a married couple.


London Motor Show

The London Motor Show at the Excel events centre was my first taste of a true large scale motoring show. Filled with plenty of concepts, exotics and test drives, enough for everyone to enjoy.

Ford GT – remake of the classic GT40

Chevrolet Camaro

Nissan GTR – supercar performance for a reasonable price

Meanwhile outside, the Red Bull London Air Race qualifying was happening
