The weather has been way better than when I was here last year so I couldn’t resist re-shooting this one #ParisJeTaime #MyFrance #MyParis #MadeinFrance #MadeinParis #arcdetriomphe ##champselysees #Paris #Funny #PaperArt #Silhouette #Igersfrance #igersoftheday #ig_france #instafrance #ig_paris #travelgram #travelpics #tourism #wanderlust #topparisphoto #passionpassport #lego #architecturelovers #architectureporn
The Shard, Londýn
I’m back in my favourite city & over the next couple of weeks I’ll be teaming up with the guys from @sonyxperiagb to test out the new #Xperia XZ Premium – which is the perfect excuse to go and explore London without a load of camera gear on my back. I took this one last week (when the weather was actually decent) and I’m going to say it’s my favourite London transformation photo yet (I know some of you guys tell me off for taking too many photos with The Shard, but I can’t help it- it’s such a fascinating & striking piece of architecture. Plus it looks pretty good with the early morning light on it) @SonyXperiaGB #TakenWithXperia #Ad #London
I’ve been wandering through the vineyards & cobbled streets of France’s famous wine-growing region, spending my days getting lost down sunny side streets & my nights curled up in quaint Chateaus. The charming teams from @visitfrenchwine and @_oliverstravels_ have given me a glimpse of what it’s like to spend some town in this area and it’s been a treat- life moves much slower here, the locals smile at you and the wine really does taste better when you drink it on a vineyard. @visitfrance @thepcagency #Spon #VisitFrenchWine #FeelFrance #FeelBordeaux #whydoordinary
Tower Bridge, Londýn
One of my personal favourites- Tower Bridge transformed into a Rollercoaster. It’s in my book ‘Around The World in Cut-Outs’ which is available to buy now from Amazon, Waterstones, Tesco & a bunch of other retailers.

Have you ever heard of the word naumachia? Until I got to Rome I hadn’t either, but it’s a word the Romans used to describe simulated naval fights – they were like gladiator battles on a bigger and wetter scale. Sometimes special structures were built and other times lakes were used, but there is evidence that the colosseum was once turned into a gladiatorial water world for a naumachia (the more you say that word, the more addictive it becomes). According to the Roman historian Cassius Dio, a sea fight took place in the amphitheatre in 86 AD. Ships, weapons and thousands of men were brought in and since every effort was made to make a naumachia (I bet you’re saying it out loud now) a colossal event, even sea creatures were shipped in from around the globe – hence why I put an octopus inside the colosseum, because y’know when in Rome, do as the Romans do. Time to hop back on board Royal Princess and head up the coast to the port of Livorno to visit Florence. (Head to @princesscruises to see more images) #comebacknew
Brooklyn Bridge, New York
Brooklyn Bridge opened in May 1883 and enjoyed a fairly harmonious first few days, but at the end of the month disaster struck. Reports vary as to what happened exactly but it seems a woman tripping on the stairs triggered a stampede of pedestrians who thought the bridge was about to collapse. In the confusion numerous people died and many more were injured. So then the city had a problem. It had just spent $15.5 million on a bridge that the public were afraid of using. So how did they convince New Yorkers that Brooklyn Bridge was safe? They turned to circus showman P.T. Barnum who’d pitched an idea for the opening of the bridge that they’d rejected a year earlier, but now it seemed like the perfect PR stunt. So one evening in May 1884, P.T. Barnum marched 21 elephants, 7 camels, and 10 dromedaries (basically furry camels) across the illuminated arches of Brooklyn Bridge, with a gigantic seven-ton African elephant named Jumbo bringing up the rear. The Bridge’s sturdiness was never called into question again #brooklynbridge #newyork #nyc #nycgo #seeyourcity #paperart

Most police departments have a strenuous relationship with the people that they’re charged to protect, but that doesn’t seem to be the case here in Reykjavik. Crime in Iceland is so low that the Reykjavik police department seemingly get to spend most of their shifts having a good time in and around the city. Their instagram page (@logreglan) mostly features them playing with cute kittens, fooling around with the locals & feedings the ducks. They even occasionally dress up as Stormtroopers whilst on patrol #InspiredByIceland #Logreglan #StarWars #Disney #StormTrooper #Kópavogskirkja #GeorgeLucas @StarWars #Police #Reykjavik #Iceland #Lol #Funny #Clouds #ArchitectureLovers #ArchitecturePorn #Silhouette #Paperart #Craft
Here’s something I learnt this week – if you go out into the streets of London with a Death Star paper cut-out, strangers stop and take a lot of interest in what you’re doing. A few even came up and excitedly chatted Star Wars to me whilst I was getting the shots for this composition, but the truth is I’m one of the six people on the planet who has never seen the original Star Wars. So a couple of weeks ago when @odeoncinemas asked me if I wanted to see Rogue One at the BFI IMAX in London, I said “sure, but I have no idea what the back story is”. Turns out when you’re watching it on a huge screen (the largest in the UK no less) and surrounded by excited fans – you can’t help but be swept up in the whole Star Wars world #RogueOneOfficial #RogueOne #Ad #Odeon #London #Cityscape #Skyline #Sunset #StarWars #DeathStar

Last Sunday, if you happened to be walking through the gardens at Le Botanique, you would have found me in the grass with some of Brussels‘ most famous treats from @pierremarcolini while enjoying the fact that I get to spend my time in beautiful destinations, conjuring up ideas to create photos like this one ? @takemeto.brussels #mybrussels #prpl @nativenationeu
Probably the most enticing name for a beach ever, Sugar Beach is an urban beach just across from the Redpath Sugar Refinery. In keeping with the theme the sand is almost white and there are pink candy coloured umbrellas dotted around. The most satisfying part is the caramel aroma that drifts over from the factory and flavours the air #ExploreCanada #MyCanadianAffair @ExploreCanada @airtransat #Toronto
We’re skiing in Arc 2000 where there’s plenty of snow – a lot of which I seemed to kick up when I tumbled down a slope earlier. There’s a really decent etiquette on the pistes when if you fall, anyone nearby will come over, check you’re okay, help you up and put your sticks back in your hand. So learning to ski is like getting a taste of elderly age. But once you get the knack of it, it feels like being a child again @LesArcs @French_Mountains #LesArcs #Paradisled #FrenchMountains #AlpsMontBlanc #Skiing #Chairlift #PaperArt #ArtofVisuals @Instagram
