10 Days of Protest with Extinction Rebellion

24 June 19

Posted at 9:55

Ten days of protests, blockades and disruption across London came to an end 25 April 2019. Hundreds of activists had met in Hyde Park for a closing ceremony.

Extinction Rebellion started its protest on 15 April, stopping traffic at Oxford Circus, Marble Arch, Waterloo Bridge and Parliament Square with smaller protests around the city and the UK.

More than 1,000 people had been arrested since they first blocked traffic to draw attention to climate change.

Below are images I captured in and around London during these peaceful protests.

Okinawa Day 2019 - London

London is an amazing city and full of surprises. Walking to the Train station through Spitalfields I came across a group of dancers and live music. Music I've not heard before but really enjoyed. I later discovered I was watching Eisa Traditional Dancing. Below is a collection of images taken on Saturday 22 June 2019

My Football Season 2018-2019

21 June 19

Posted at 10:28

Unfortunately I'm not the most prolific sport/football photographer due to other commitments but the games I have covered for Frozen in Motion I've appreciated and enjoyed. Manchester City destroy Chelsea in the Community Shield, Chelsea Women were unfortunate not to have beaten Lyon in the Semi-Final of the Champions League, Manchester City win the League Cup final and Aston Vila beat Derby County to be promoted to the Premier League in what is billed has the most expensive game in football. Of course like any photographer who shoots football I would have loved to have captured the Champions League Final, FA Cup final and Manchester City lift the Premier League trophy. Looking forward to the next season and hopefully be able to shoot more games.

Aston Villa Vs Derby County - Championship Playoff Final 2019

18 June 19

Posted at 5:04

Winning the Championship playoff is worth an estimate £170m, making Aston Villa and Derby's clash at Wembley making it the richest single game in English football.

Aston Villa had too much for Derby and went on to win 2-1 and be promoted to the Premier League.
