Horsefaceography

Horsefaceography

At B & C’s party last Saturday evening, I snapped some excellent horse face photographs, including this one… Hosf’sography is one of the most fun things you can do with a digital camera and a flash at a house party.  The technique for getting good results is quite simple. Being, as I must be by now, one of the worlds… Read more →

I feel a bit Christmassy now.

We’ve just been to a the Christmas Carol Service at Christ Church on The Stray. I do love a good sing. A full choir – around 25 – 30 members with a full range. Being a special Carol service, naturally all eyes were on the choir and they didn’t disappoint. The carols ranged from the equivalent of smash hits –… Read more →

Morning Timelapse

Morning Timelapse

A rather stunning sky accompanied me on my walk into work this morning – yes THIS morning. Due to a very long and quite dull story involving a bunch of my colleagues in Bulgaria, I elected to work today in Lieu of a day off elsewhere. I really enjoy working in an empty office. Thought space. I had a busy… Read more →

Dog at home, thing at work

Dog at home, thing at work

I’ve decided that these are my fave photos that I took today..   I took my camera into work today to take a bunch of photos of everyone wearing their Festive Jumpers – for our staff Christmas card. A stink load of cash for for Save the Children because everyone who wore a festive jumper contributed.. this was supplemented with… Read more →

Probably the nicest content on the internet, today.

This made me smile – I think that was it’s intention. It’s quite cutesy and all that, but I liked it. Chicago’s Magical Piano: I bet they had some fun with that. Not much has happened of note in the past few days. We’re nearing the end of Breaking Bad – what a fantastic series it’s been. According to Antony… Read more →

365 – nearly done

Dull blog alert. Only the die ‘ard dragondrop readers will make it to the end. You have been warned. The normal days are drawing to a close on this (365) blog project. By that, I mean, the days that have no significance on their own, are dwindling. This one for instance, is NOT the last Tuesday I’ll work before I… Read more →

These guys brightened up my Monday

These guys brightened up my Monday

A high propencity of the keep left signs in my ‘hood have developed a personality or two, overnight. I’m going to chalk it up as Art. Others, I dare say would call it vandalism. I particularly like the way that it feels like these bollards were purpose built blank canvasses for these faces. Beautification of the mundane is in the… Read more →

Friday

Friday. Mid drinkypoos at a friends house who is celebrating his 52 birthday. He took the candles on his cake and made them say 25. Later, I’m DJing. Its been a big old week. Parents evening and heavy duty work. I’ve taken my first call as a Samaritan as well. It went well. Aye. Crisps and some more wine me… Read more →

Residual self image

Residual self image

I’ve updated my residual self image in the internets. I’ve updated LinkedIn, Skype and Twitter (prolly got a couple more networks to go, but..) this evening, I updated Facebook with it as my profile pic. I quite like it (that’s why). I shot it on August the 9th this year, it’s called “Selfie with dog”. I shot it on Kodak… Read more →

Monday morning

I’m working with a team in a different timezone at the moment. They are two hours ahead and so it made sense to me at the time, when I suggested last Friday that I start at 07:00 so that we could start the day / meeting (Scrum kick off over VC) 09:00 their time. It wasn’t that bad though. Pretty… Read more →
