Travel

It’s been a bit like a dream that over the last few years I have been steadily been selling limited edition art prints of my favourite photographs from my travels around the world – mostly through Artfinder, but also some direct sales. Many of the images you might recognise as they would have been posted here on my travel blog (thptravels) before.

It’s a very rewarding feeling when a new order comes through and I really enjoy the process of getting the prints packed and shipped to my customers, wherever in the world they may be based – and that is the beautiful thing about selling on online platforms, i feel privileged to be able to say my artworks are hanging as wall art in people’s living rooms and offices around the world.

Just the other week I started building up and testing a new marketplace on the Shopify site – as a new platform I’m very excited to try it out, and am looking forward to reaching a larger audience. It’s another chance for more people to take part in my travel experiences through my photography.

So please feel free to have a look at my new site by clicking on the link: https://toms-travel-photography.myshopify.com

My new photography website has finally been launched.

Hi All, This is not strictly a travel update but I have just launched a new updated version of my website www.tomhphoto.co.uk with updated images - many updates to the travel section of course - and now mobile friendly. It would be great to get feedback, so feel free to leave a comment.

A Transylvanian Cycling Adventure.

Sometimes time really flies and escapes. This post is over a year delayed, so will have to make it a bit short and sweet.

Last June I had the opportunity to join in on a cycle trip through the beautiful landscapes of Transylvania, surrounded the Carpathian Mountains, visiting old Saxon villages where the traditional way of life still largely prevails.

The trip was arranged by the Global Heritage Fund (GHF) and organised by The Slow Cyclist. The GHF is committed to aid in the restoration of the vernacular architecture of the Saxon Villages using the traditional techniques and materials, so the focus of our trip was to visit some of the villages and sites to see the result of the work that has been done, and also see the progress of some of the current restorations.

The Slow Cyclist did an absolute fantastic job with the arranging of all the accommodation, food, entertainment, transport and mountain bikes. We were treated with the most gorgeous home-cooked food, and despite all the exercise from cycling I gained a fair few pounds from overindulging.

An unexpected little bonus on our last day before flying back home to the UK was to meet The Prince of Wales at an opening of a traditional kiln for making roof-tiles and building bricks. It was also fun to be able to try making a tile myself – somewhere in Transylvania there is a roof with a single tile inscribed with my name, if it survived the burning process that is.

Some more images from the London 2012 Paralympics. As I mentioned in my previous post it’s been a fantastic and inspiring experience, and I’ve been feeling like a tourist in the city I live in. The atmosphere has been out of this world, and it’s been great to see the athletes’ amazing achievements. In this gallery you can see some photos of the athletes and some of the people who have come to the events to support them, plus some shots of the surroundings in the Stratford Olympic park.

Some of the architecture encountered while watching the London 2012 Paralympics. It’s been like being a tourist in the city I live in, which has been quite fun. The atmosphere has been absolutely fantastic and it’s really inspiring to watch the athletes’ achievements despite their challenges.
