I love to take black & white photos of people carrying out an occupation. It can be work related or fun, as long as they are occupied in some way.

Train Men

Sheringham Railway Station, in Norfolk, is one of my favourite haunts for taking photos.  Normally there are steam trains, but on this day in 2017, it was a diesel locomotive at work.  I switched my attention to the human element in making a train station run smoothly and a wonderful job they do and will go into my ‘Occupation Category’   I have left the last photo coloured, as the station is really something of a bygone age and looks equally good in b&w and colour.  

Too Many Chefs

We were at a food show in London last year 2017, and I get a bit bored, so out comes the camera 🙂  I love the look on the Chefs face…..it could mean anything.  

Here are a few more I took, but not as good as the first one, although good enough for my ‘Occupation Category’

A Helping Hand

I am sorting through church photos at the moment, but keep coming across photos taken at the Oktoberfest in Munich, Bavaria, from 2016.  I was trying to capture the young lady with her beer steins, when a couple from our party, definitely started to look a little worried 🙂

They Only Ordered Soup

I love going to the Oktoberfest in Munich, Bavaria.  We try to go each year, husband goes for the beer, I go for the photo taking opportunities of which there are plenty, inside the tents and out.  I just loved the look on this poor guys face, those trays are heavy.  

A good one for my ‘Occupation Category’ which as been a bit lapsed lately.


Wine Making, Switzerland

I love finding photos that I have forgotten about, and come across them when having a sort out   I took this photo from the car window, when were driving in Switzerland near Interlaken in 2016.  This is quite an apt photo, as we have been making wine from the grapes that grew in our garden this year 2017, we had loads.  At the moment it is a lovely pale yellow colour, started life as a horrible dark green sludge colour, hopefully it will taste ok.  We also have some ginger wine on the go, and hopefully that will be ready for Christmas, but that was a kit 🙂  

Not our grapes, but vineyards on the road to Interlaken in Switzerland 2016 

Dusty Combine Harvesters

A few weeks ago, before we went on holiday, all around us in the Fens the air was thick with dust, they had the big combine harvesters in the fields.  Now back from holiday, yesterday I noticed they are now harrowing, just glad the dust has settled until next year, when it all starts again.

Filming, South of France

When we were in the South of France last week, we did a lot of road trips along the coast, and on one of these, we passed a lay-by and saw this.  I am still trying to work out what we saw, we think it might have been for an advert for something, but the black car was amazing.  It really was point and press, as I had no time, I just clicked away as we swung passed and hoped I got something 🙂

A good one for my ‘Occupation Category’ – Film Crew
