    Day 214: Data protection

    Today we had a little barbecue, but it was old financial records we were cooking, not food. Weíre having a bit of a clear-out at the moment, and this seemed the safest way of protecting our information. Plus, you know, itís fun. Itís been pos...

    Today was the first of a few warm days weíre to expect, so I was on maintenance duty today. I love working on bikes. Iím rubbish when it comes to car maintenance, so itís a pleasure to work on something when you can just look at it and see how it...

    Day 209: Anything thatís not nailed downÖ

    Day 180: The very limit of distance shooting Day

    Todayís shot has pushed it, to say the least. I was (according to my cameraís built in distance monitor) 59.6 metres from this heron (about 180 feet). Iíve cropped as far as is possible before the pixels become obvious, and clicking on the image...

    Day 179: Paper tortoiseshell

    I spent several hours today trying out a rather advanced bit of folding, but the paper split in the final stages. So instead of seeing the completed model, Iím giving you another texture shot, with one of the interim stages. It looks like Iím go...

    Day 176: Pomander

    This was part of my fianceeís ensemble at her friendís wedding a couple of years ago. This is exactly the kind of thing we are having to consider now, so itís been brought out of storage for a closer inspection. I have to admit, for foam flowers...
