Flickr is great, isn’t it? Last week, they introduced in–browser photo editing (via Picnik), and this Thursday they added stats. If you’re a Pro user, go and activate stats for your account. I think you’ll like it. By digging around my stats, I now know that this generated ‘fractal flame’ picture (generated using Apophysis) appears […]
I love walking through London with my camera. Channel 4‘s offices on Horseferry Road (SW1) are quite striking. The big 4 logo outside is stunning, and walking past it is just like being in one of their adverts.
Sam and I woke up this morning with mild hangovers after the first night of Airwaves. We made a hangovercast over breakfast in which we mumble about the bands we saw last night. Enjoy. Hangover cast #1 – Wednesday night Here are the bands we saw… 12 Tonar: Rokkurro (beautiful) Gavin Portland (loud) Organ: The […]
An 8am start in order to sort out rental car and have breakfast. (The sausage, egg, beans and weird-cold-potato-cubes were tolerable, but Sam made an exciting discovery: muesli, yogurt and watermelon makes a refreshing breakfast.)

Importantly, it’s also only 15 minutes from the Blue Lagoon – an amazing geothermally outdoor pool full of blue-green algae and strange squishy mud. The departure of the […]
I mainly took this photo to use in presentations. A few people have suggested that a nice macro shot of a business card would be a good way to share those details in an attractive way. Double bonus: the narrow depth of field means my phone number is too blurry to read. If you need […]
A number of people have asked me recently “what is it you do again?”. When I tell my friends and family that I’m giving a presentation at some conference or another, they very rarely have any idea of what I mean. So, if you’ve always wondered what sort of nonsense I’ll stand up on stage […]
I spent a long weekend in Germany celebrating Adam and Helene’s wedding. It was amazingly good fun, and pretty much everything in the wedding service and the party afterwards was translated from German into English (and vice-versa) so nobody felt left out. We had a cadeleigh, a bouncy castle, various games and even a bonfire […]
Last month I invented Parquet: urban free standing. Today I was wondering around Southbank and saw a crowd of young chappies doing the real deal. I was particularly impressed that they were doing all of this right outside the The Royal Waterloo Hospital for Children and Women. Very sensible of them.
