i recently had a few photos featured on the Peterborough Loves website – you can see the specific post at the link below: http://www.peterboroughloves.co.uk/peterborough-loves-great-photos-local-photography-neil-torr/   I sent them in as I had been asked to send a few as I keep in touch with the person who runs the site. It’s nice to see someoneContinue reading “A Few Photos of Peterborough”

Peterborough Cathedral

Those of you who have read much of my blog will know that one of my favourite subjects to photograph is Peterborough Cathedral. Right in the centre of Peterborough, it is something of a hidden gem. I thought it was time to show some more photos of the Cathedral and that now might be aContinue reading “Peterborough Cathedral”

All Saints Flower Festival

On the weekend of 10th and 11th June 2017 All Saints Church on Park Road in Peterborough held a Flower Festival to help raise funds for some roof repairs to the church. Although a success more money still needs to be raised – please see the end of this post for details. People were ableContinue reading “All Saints Flower Festival”

Weekly Photo Challenge: Frame

So the photo challenge I am doing this time was from August 2016, the challenge being to “find an alternative frame to the world around you” – https://dailypost.wordpress.com/photo-challenges/frame/.   This is something I often do when looking at architectural photos – the frames are often built in to what you are photographing, if you’ll pardonContinue reading “Weekly Photo Challenge: Frame”

Weekly Photo Challenge: Look Up

Yes, this really is a weekly photo challenge, it’s just that the challenge was a long time ago – it was in July 2016 in fact.

Through My Eyes – My First Exhibition

Just over a month ago now – time seems to have got away from me – I had my first exhibition. It was held in Bewiched Coffee in Peterborough where I have had some items on the walls for some time now.     This was originally at the suggestion of the branch manager ofContinue reading “Through My Eyes – My First Exhibition”

Peterborough on a Wet Night 2015

I popped out with the camera and tripod briefly on Tuesday evening last week trying to get a few pictures in the wet which can look quite spectacular with the older buildings – the Cathedral in particular – and with the added bonus of the Christmas lights being up thought it was worth braving the rain. Here are aContinue reading “Peterborough on a Wet Night 2015”

Reflections

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Half and Half.” One of my favourite places to photograph is Peterborough Cathedral. It is a very large grand Norman cathedral with some stunning artwork and architecture. One of the things to look for in particular is the nave painted wooden ceiling which was completed between 1230Continue reading “Reflections”
