The Clock End & The Kop End

The last few weeks have allowed me the opportunity to explore a change of scenery. A visit to London to photograph Arsenal at their home, the Emirates Stadium, as well as some unusually-acceptable weather at Stoke and Goodison Park have all served as welcome refreshers at a time in the season when the light has well and truly returned, and a slight warmth in the air has threatened to interrupt the torrential rain we’ve seen for the last couple of months.
