2015 a year in photos – Part 2 of 3

This is the 2nd part of my blog about the photos I have taken in 2015. You can read the 1st part here. The 2nd part is from May to August with the height of spring and summer.

Some of the highlights include being invited on to a tour of Tower bridge with the new glass walkway. Rebecca Ferguson & Ronnie Scotts All Stars band in Watford and being able to visit the amazing  Art15 show before the public back in May. May was also the month where I had an exhibition of 3 of my photographs.
