A young lady in a fur coat rshes through the rain on a street in central Paris – taken from a passing taxi cab.
I was driving through Paris in a taxicab with a friend when I saw this elegant woman rushing through the rain and I yelled ‘Quick, give me my camera!” I was able to grab a quick shot and the taxi moved on through the rain – luckily it worked. The date was in 1992, and I was shooting on Ilford delta 400, but now I have no idea of the camera (I think it was a Canon F1). The image has long been a favourite of mine and was exhibited at my one-man show at the Royal Photographic Society’s gallery in Bath, England many years ago. I have FINALLY scanned it so that it is available as a print at a sensible price on my website at http://archive.gwpics.com/#!/index/I0000wBxOF2sLuVU

I had the pleasure of photographing two great virtuosos of the acoustic bass, Christian McBride and Edgar Meyer, at the weekend. Here is a link to the Slate gallery of words and images for your to look at:
All images were taken on the M9 at 800iso with the Zeiss 50mm Sonnar f1.5 pretty close to wide open the whole time.
Hope you enjoy!

After toying with Adobe Portfolio (part of the CC suite) I have stuck with Photoshelter for the versatility it offers, and I have now done a complete revamp of the appearance of my website at www.gwpics.com. Whilst Adobe Portfolio is very good for a free website it simply did not have the facilities that I needed.
Please take a look and let me have feedback if you feel so inclined – the website address remains exactly the same. If anyone is thinking of going with Photoshelter I can let them have a discount code.
Last night I photographed the great Bugge Wesseltoft setting up at the Turner Sims Concert Hall. I used the Leica M9 and Zeiss 50mm Sonnar f1.5 at 1250iso. the more I use this camera the more I simply love it. I was worried about losing autofocus in my advancing years but I am finding the same success rate as with autofocus. You can see the photographs at https://slate.adobe.com/cp/iRT29/
