I recently visited the Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial Fountain in Hyde Park and after all the bad press it has had and lots of corrective works I think it is a really successful piece of sculpture, which the public seems to enjoy. It has a variety of water flows which is a delight to experience.

On Saturday, I attended a "London Independent Photography" workshop entitled "Photographing the Urban Landscape" with Mike Seaborne. About 10 of us were shown a portfolio of his work and then he guided us a circular route round Kennington and Elephant & Castle and we all took photographs. Each of us then selected four pictures for discussion. It was an interesting exercise, seeing the different interpretations of a common subject. I have made a slideshow of my efforts, showing a total of 44 of the 117 images I took that day. It includes a serendipitous portrait taken at the very end of the day of Terry Turner, a very long term and active member of the The Camera Club in Kennington where we held the workshop.

These are pictures from a new project entitled "urban nature" which I am putting together for a workshop with Karen Knorr arranged by London Independent Photography in November. It's "work in progress" on a subtheme of "urban beaches" and I look forward to seeing what other people do with the subject.
