Earlier this year I went home to Cornwall and did a bit of tourist sightseeing. One of the places we went to was a 'living quay' in Devon. This was somewhere that I had been to when I was much younger and quite enjoyed so thought that it would be interesting to go as an [...]
I'm slowly going to start writing about my WordPaperPress / Photoshelter site and how it was made I will hopefully go some way to explain the three constituent parts (Wordpress, Graph Paper Press and Photoshelter) and how they glue to each other to provide a seamless experience between sites. There's recently been an upgrade to [...]
Just a quick post to big up a couple of podccasts that totally rock. Firstly the excellent House Nation, broascast by Lee Harris. Tunes are more on the techy side, excellently mixed and always contain at least one old skool tune fron back in the day to jog the memory. Secondly there is the awesome [...]
This weekend Viveca and I went to The New Forest for a weekend out of town. Amongst other things I was looking forward to doing some flash photography in the woods. We didn't managed to achieve what I set out to - that will have to wait until another time. I did however [...]
Maybe things weren't quite so innocent at The Potters Manor after all! I'm not particularly happy with the processing on the second image, I was trying to get a 'light behind the photos' effect.
Some time ago a friend and I went to see what we could find high up. We had to wait around a bit and climb many stairs - however the views were well worth it. I would certainly recommend that anyone who has the chance to go high of an evening do it at least [...]
What with it being a Bank Holiday here Viveca and I decided that it would be a nice idea to go out and do something non urbex and touristy in the countryside. no creeping around trying to be quiet or having to worry abut security catching us. We had two choices - Hever Castle or [...]
On the otherside of town fron the launch of that iPAD thing microsoft are ravin' it up.
Nice pasteup on my way home, appears to be by Justin Time
Flickr has recently allowed download of .xls or .csv of views on Flickr photos. This has enabled some clever spark to create a graph and pie chart of all your Flickr Stats since . . well a long time ago. You can see daily stats on from the Stats Link wiggly line: However if you [...]
More pictures of my dinner I am afraid. I do kinda enjoy food photography, its pretty easy to get a half decent shot, but can be hard to get decent composition. DoF with this type of image is fun. Most of the time I am using the 'nifty fifty' and images generally come out pretty [...]
Well today has been uneventful. Due to drawing blanks on three explores yesterday I decided to take a picture of my dinner. It has been nice outside so I was dining al fresco for a change. Chicken, peppers, couscous and some salad . . lovely. It was very nice - that's about all i have [...]
Whilst having a wander through the woods near Hailsham, I couldn't help but take some shots of the amazing bluebells that were out. More HERE
Yesterday I went to Hellingly Asylum. I'd heard that it was in the process of demo so decided to go for one last look to see the state of things and how work was progressing. It took me a bit of time to get in as I managed to get lost in the woods which [...]
Guess where I'm going :-)
Last night I watched Mental: A History of the Madhouse on BBC4 detailing life in the asylums of Britain in the middle of the last century. The show specifically mentioned High Royds, however I have no doubt that conditions were similar in most other institutions throughout the UK in the similar era. It was particularly [...]
