Mystery Photos

Mystery Photos

My new years resolution was ‘shoot more film’. Long story short (my theory is that) by shooting film, I’m spurred to be more creative, do more extra curricular creative things, that kind of thing. A sub plot is, that it’s often and adventure catalyst. Case in point; I bought a ‘job lot’ of cameras from eBay. 5 cameras from a… Read more →

Reflections

A busy year. I’ve done more miles in the sky than any other year of my life. This year has had it’s ups and downs but on the whole, it’s been a heck of an adventure. We’ve lost some people (Eddie being the hardest blow for us) and we’ve gained some people. A few births, a few new friendships. I’ve… Read more →

365 Project – COMPLETE

365 Project – COMPLETE

364.5 Days ago I launched a project to blog every day throughout 2013. Publishing this very post will complete that project. By way of something to write about today, I thought I’d surface some of my fave moments, and (going by view stats) some of yours. It’s been a remarkable year. Some of it I knew was coming – the… Read more →

(Last night’s) FIRE party photos

(Last night’s) FIRE party photos

Tip top night. It got to about 21:30 and there was no one in the house. Why am I doing this, thought I – it was empty. My wingman had pulled out at the last minute for personal reasons (he turned up later though) which made me happy. By 21:35, it was busy. It was as if someone had dropped… Read more →

Round Hill Round Rainbow

Round Hill Round Rainbow

After a day of oversized portions and undersized exercise yesterday,  I woke up this morning, feeling like I wanted to go on a burst of adventure. I scoured the maps and found a suitable looking geocache as a target, just above Blubberhouses. I arrived at the place I’d picked to park just before sunrise – around 08:00. It was minus… Read more →

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 →

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 →

Poor attempt at a DIY neg scanner

Poor attempt at a DIY neg scanner

I’ve been to London and back today. I’ve done this many times before, but it still feels weird when I go to London and come back in a day. It feels even weirder when I’m out of the house for a normal time frame. I had very civilised train times today – 09:05 out of Harrogate, back in Harrogate for… Read more →

Me and my dad. Christmas, 1984.

Me and my dad. Christmas, 1984.

We’ve been having a bit of a clear out recently, and last night, these three pictures were unearthed. I remember that scene like it was yesterday. I got that computer – a 32KB Acorn Electron for Christmas and it was that very computer that hooked me on creating stuff with computers. That photo is of me doing some actual graphics… Read more →
