I've always thought the original Back to the Future movie was great, and there's a song from it called Earth Angel that was very nice. When I was younger, I saw a short film that had quite a sad and touching story, and I think it started and ended with... Continue reading

Great photo. Low light photography is a challenge, and ideally a camera with a larger sensor is supposed to be better for that. Hand-held shots may be tricky, and usually finding something to prop my hand or camera against helps. One other 'trick' is to use the timer function as that will avoid movement from pressing the shutter button. If you used an N8, that is impressive.

I had a professional do some waxing for me the other day. Well, OK it's not what you think. I've been trying to find ways to protect my car's bodywork from corrosion and general nastiness in the coming winter months, so I did a bit of research online and found... Continue reading

Some employees are thought to have had no idea that their jobs were at risk before the humiliating public meeting. One employee said: "Some of the people got up and walked straight out of the room, others sat there crying, others were absolutely dumbstruck." via I think I agree... Continue reading

It would be terribly remiss of me not to do a double rainbow post, so here we go! As it happened, yesterday I was looking through a photograph collection and uncovered my own Double Rainbow - captured on camera on location in Australia back in 2005! Now isn't that a... Continue reading

I was given a calendar last Christmas from a 'Secret Santa'. It's quite a nice one - with a quote for each month. I thought I'd mark September by posting the picture for this month from the calendar. Enjoy! Continue reading

Well, as a soon-to-be ex-Vox blogger, we were all notified yesterday that Vox was sadly shutting its doors by the end of September, and one of the options was to migrate over to Typepad. I have to say, it was a painless transfer and it only took about 6 or... Continue reading
