Some people reckon that one’s wedding day should be unforgettable…
For one couple it most certainly was. The day arrived and after weeks of rain and storms one could indeed breathe a sigh of relief as the sun shone in the relatively calm and upmarket neighbourhood of Lincolns Inn Fields. The chauffeur arrived in the gorgeous vintage Roller and lets face facts, the couple looked good. So what now could possibly go wrong? What?
Ah yes; choosing to get married in style the very same day the World Naked Bike Ride descends on the square and takes over! The couple stared out of the luxurious gas guzzling limo’s windows askance at the naked, wigged, painted, pierced, and tattooed people that now surrounded them on their bikes, unicycles, and skates all protesting about the worlds reliance on oil. Where they might have liked to wave at the general wellwishers, they got an eyeful of crossbars and genitals, – and why not? They’ll never forget their wedding day. To be perfectly frank they missed a photo opportunity and a half – if they had got out and walked amongst the crowd they could have had some lovely pics for the mother in law’s mantelpiece.….so where was that wedding photographer????

Indian summer part 2
Summer took a while to arrive last year. In fact these photos with the clear blue skies were taken at the beginning of October- the joys of an Indian summer! Today as I look out on to a snow white garden this moment now seems a while ago. Normally I’d be out throwing snowballs at the neighbours but I am inside today catching up with some photo and video editing! So enjoy these pics of Ekene and lets hope for a long hot summer.
Also in this series: Indian Summer Part 1
Just to confirm that my photos seem to lend themselves to the dark side I use some images from one of my favourite shoots of the year….

I had been waiting since the Spring for a few summer days with clear blue skies. Did they happen? Well there was one day in June but the model cancelled at the last minute due to a heavy night clubbing. Then it was endless gloom as July and August …and September passed with very few clear sunny days. Then extraordinarily in late September the weather forecasters let on that we were due for a short warm spell and I hit the phone. Which models would be available at short notice? I spent several days traipsing down to the coast – three guys and one girly took part and over the next few weeks as the weather gets colder I will post them in memory of a brief but very pleasing warm spell…
Model: Lewis Oakley
You may just recognise this guy; he played a small part in “The Only Way is Essex”. Fitter than most guys half his age he runs his own personal training in North London. So do you wanna get ripped? Interested parties can always message here and I will pass on your details to Paul directly.

If you were venturing across Waterloo Bridge at about 5pm yesterday afternoon you would have seen hundreds of people cycling in protest butt naked pass by. It’s a good natured event for those on the bikes, and for those watching too. Many of which were Boris bikes I noticed which made me wonder how many of those using them were regular cyclists. The sun was out but the air was cool so maybe it was an ideal day for a naked bike ride…
