Carshalton 0 Corinthian Casuals 3. The Challenge of Nighttime Non League Photography AKA ISO 12800


Football photographers get used to many things, variable lighting across a pitch, non league floodlights and inclement weather. It is just what we do. Add to that sloping pitches, players warming up in front of you, and the fun really starts. But it is a challenge. My Canon EOS 5D MK3 copes reasonably well with all this, and a small amount of playing afterwards reduces some of the grain, albeit at the expense sometimes of sharpness.  I really enjoy these challenges.

These photos come from a non league cup game, Velocity trophy, and was actually a great game to watch for the neutral. Here are some of the photos both of the game and the fans which capture the magic of non league.

51 Blakes Lane . New Malden. What does anyone know about this house?


I walk past here daily and the house looks quite abandoned. The roof is in a sorry state and generally the outside looks in poor condition.

What do we know about this property? Does anyone live there? Has anyone seen the occupants? There are horror stories about people being found dead in their house 2-3 years later.

Simply does anyone know something?

Even On A Grey Day New Malden Looks Not Too Shabby


An afternoon dog walk on this grey day . Residential New Malden is not too bad. The only negative was the usual rubbish strewn along pavements . The beer cans and quarter brandy bottles suggest that neither Veolia nor Foxes can be blamed for everything.

There are some nice views. The Beverly Brook is not a bad little tributary. The big old house on Blake’s Lane . Even the grey skies. Not too bad at all.
