More Chocolate from the House

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory....?

Nope, it's the 1657 Chocolate House in Kendal, back for another stills shoot. Chocolate, chocolate, everywhere... and not a drop to eat. Well, that's not quite true, I did get to try a few 'samples' during the day, very yummy they were too. Some more nice images for their new website which will be going live very soon.

Food Glorious Food

Pappy's Texas BBQ is a new company based in Winderemere in the Lake District.

We were asked to shoot some stills of a selection of the dishes that they will be producing for weddings, parties and any other social gatherings requiring high class food served either casually or in a high class dining environment. And the food was tasty as a tasty thing... I got to sample some of the produce and very yummy it was too :-)

Shanghai, home of the 'Wonky Market'...!

Shanghai started out lovely and warm but the week ended up being very cold and somewhat wet. However there was time for tea tasting, some local cuisine and a few visits to the local market where you can buy almost anything...!

This picture was taken at The Bund, the waterfront area that centres on the Zhongshan Road that runs along the western bank of the Huangpu River:

No Worries Down Under

Most of March I spent upside down in the land Down Under. This was a working holiday, a bit of business and a bit of pleasure, the best compromise I guess..!

A couple of weeks in Melbourne with my lovely friends down on the Mornington Peninsula and a week working on the Melbourne F1, the first race of the new season.

Then it was off to Adelaide to see my many wonderful friends over there whom I hadn't seen for 11 years, although when we all met up it felt like just 5 minutes ago.
