Backpack, backpack

Backpack, backpack

You can’t just say ‘backpack’ the once, if you’ve had kids in the house over the past 10 years. You’ve got to say it twice, in the style of Dora the Explorer. Backpack is likely to be quite a common component of our family vocabulary, as a result of the momentous “first backpack” walk out this morning. Annie, has finally… Read more →

Sleep

Sleep

Last night, I had an incredible, well above average, nights sleep. It may be to do with the long and full on day I had – including a trip into London and back (not getting in ’till 10:30) and a fair ol’ chunk of things done besides. Lots of cerebral activity. It’s funny old stuff is sleep. It’s the time… Read more →

Lots of screen

A day that involved lots of screen time. Video conference screens to two other countries, Laptop screen + extended monitor whilst chucking around shapes in Axure and Agile planning in TFS. Watch screen to keep an eye on the time, phone screen to see who’s calling. Tablet screen to watch a bit of this, a bit of that. Chat with… Read more →

"The impossible photograph"

“The impossible photograph”

“The impossible photograph, that’s really what’s at the heart of my work” Richard Mosse. When I mentioned in my blog post last night that I’d like to try out some colour infraded film, old friend and fine art photographer Anna Karin-Lilleengen posted a link on my facebook wall.

Busy yet not busy Sunday.

We’ve not actually done anything as a family, but I’ve been up to all sorts. 1./ I’ve drafted an idea for a post for this Friday night at Zoso bar that I’m involved with; Still work in progress, but I’m starting to like… Read more →

Olympus OM10. Nice Bokeh!

Olympus OM10. Nice Bokeh!

I love the phrase ‘nice bokeh’. It’s a über nerdy photography thing to say. Bokeh is my favourite word from the whole world of photography. It’s from a  Japanese word that concerns the aesthetic qualities of ‘the blur’ / out of focus region of a photograph. To really push the boundaries of bokeh, you need to make your depth of field… Read more →

Brown Eyes

Brown Eyes

Today has comprised of going to Christchurch on The Stray this morning then a party this afternoon. Sophie had a starring role at church – a reading type thing – she got to stand in the pulpit. Lovely service. Good ol’ sing song. From there we headed up to our friends house near Nidd. There was about 20 – 30… Read more →

Generation D

Generation D

I received a belated birthday present this morning. A National Semiconductors’ Digital NOVUS LED Watch. I absolutely love it to bits. When these came out – 40 years ago, when I was born (the model I’ve been bought is a ’73 – just like me) they would have been an incredible technology to behold – these were the very first… Read more →
