Walking with a Leica

I carry my Leica D-Lux 4 with me because I am a photographer and I just cannot bring myself to rely on my sturdy iPhone for anything more than a fanciful snap (other than sending my emails, browsing the web, keeping my diary and just about organising my life). Times are changing and perhaps one day the unification of the technologies will sit comfortably with my photographic practice but for now I will continue to carry about what has since the dawn of documentary photography been the photographers most trusty tool, the leica.


I have been in three distinctly different towns / cities in the last couple of weeks and just thought I would share what I saw whilst there in three simple photographs. Doncaster, Wilmslow and Stockport.

Amon Rashidi visits Manchester

Last night, Sunday 30th October, Amon Rashidi spoke at the West Indian Centre, Carmoor Rd, Longsight.

A fascinating and impassioned view on tackling gang culture through the sharing of ideas and media. The central theme of family responsibility and community rang true with an Americanisation of David Cameron's Big Idea.
