Trawling my top ten photos (on flickr anyway)

Published on 26 September 2010 in , ,

I've had a camera since I was probably seven or eight or something like that, but it was digital photography that really got me started because it ended the depressing cycle of me taking photos, sending them off to be developed, getting them back and flicking through them only to find them all badly framed, out of focus or full of those annoying stickers saying "boy do you suck at that this big time dude..." All of a sudden I could take good photographs, frame them correctly, and best of all, experiment.

The post Cumbria Way facial hair

Published on 12 October 2009 in ,

It seems like months since I was up North walking the Cumbria Way, which to be fair it was. However the vagaries of normal life meant that ultimately I didn't get round to writing all the blog posts I meant to about my time up there - especially as I ended up writing a plethora of articles about London at the same time. Still when you've got blog posts to write, why not write them even if it is far too late after the event! Especially when one of the things I didn't get round to blogging about was facial hair!

Snow

There's not many times when I don't feel a pang, a wish to live outside London. But there's a regular one, round about this time of year.

Gyms – motivation and calories

Published on 20 September 2008 in , , , ,

It's coming up for three years since I joined the gym, which is conveniently located a mere five minute walk from our house. And I've been a regular visitor ever since, with a target of going 3 times a week to either work out or swim.

Hope for the North

The story today that a think tank believes some Northern cities are beyond revival and that those living there should move to the South East is one that fills me with some interesting conflicting emotions.

Remember the physical before we regret it

I like technology. Technology is cool. I like the convenience of my MP3 player. My photos have never been better since I got a digital camera so that I can see what I've taken, and improve instantly. My PVR hoovers up TV programmes and gives them to me in a nice menu.
