Bank Holiday Weekend


At the Berriew Show with Andrew Logan, he of Alternative Miss World fame. 



A competitor at the Berriew Show.


Beautiful Bank Holiday weather - sheets of rain and 16 degrees.


A soaked peacock cleaning himself on the balustrades overlooking the view found in the previous picture. This last picture is worth viewing large if you can.

Theatre Work


The silhouettes are PS brushes produced by erichilemex at DeviantArt. The masks come from a couple of photographs I took at The Guilsfield Show and then mucked about with. It was to be a piece for a psychotherapist who works with British theatres, amongst other clients, but it wasn't right in the end; however, I didn't want it languishing unseen on a hard drive as I quite like it. I sometimes think I should be spending my time a tad more productively* but I come back to pictures and photography and colour and form and shape again and again and again.

*That is, in the form of work that garners more money.

Welcome to Mrs Lemon's: Sic transit gloria mundi.

A more considered selection of photographs, and more commercial work, can be found at http://patrickdoddsphotography.co.uk where you will also find my Flickr stream.

"Mrs Lemon's Visit to Japan" takes its name from a poster seen in Cornwall advertising a talk at the local Women's Institute - I thought it had a ring to it :) Before I saw this (there is a picture of it somewhere on here taken many moons ago), the bolg (I mean "blog" of course, but today bolg sounds like a better description somehow), the bolg was known as Ten Years of Pictures, my target being when I set out to take a picture a day for 10 years; probably luckily for everyone concerned, I failed in this and instead I give you the melange that is Mrs Lemon's; I hope there is something here you like.

NB If you go back in time far enough on here some of the photos start to disappear - I think this has to do with a strange policy Google has of only keeping one copy of a photo and sharing it between Picassa (where I want to store nothing) and here; I'm not sure but I think any pictures on here have to be on Picassa which I'm not wild about but there you go - a free service so, for the time being, I'm not complaining. Not too much anyway.
