The one on the right is the image we normally have of Charles Darwin, familiar to British people at least as the man on the £10 note. But on the left is Darwin as a young man at Christ's College in 1831 when he was 22 and planning a field trip to Tenerife. He never made that journey as he had the opportunity to accompany Capt FitzRoy aboard The Beagle.
On another occasion I was wandering along by the River Cam photographing the University rowing races when it suddenly became darker as rain clouds rolled in, followed by the inevitable downpour. I walked briskly towards the railway bridge which was the only cover from the elements when I noticed....
....I just love the stoicism with which horses face (or more often turn their backs on) inclement weather.
I thought I'd finished with photography for the afternoon and was thinking about doing my shopping when I saw...
... the look of determination on this woman as she swings her basket. I get the feeling that the market trader might have a hard time if the prices or quality aren't to her liking.
Not the kind of image I was expecting when I ventured into a parish church but I rather like it:
....shadows as the sun strikes through the church window.
Sometimes I just get the feeling that somebody's watching me...
And watch out for ambushes.
