Daily Photo #77

Well, light wasn't great but I got one shot I was happy with (near the old Science Museum).


Linda decided I needed cheering up so she persuaded me to shoot a few of her, they should be on FlickR later ;)
Last night's post was inspired by an utterly mediocre day. Coupled with a recurring dream where I'm trapped on a deserted ship in a fog that stretches for miles with a faulty radio that can only receive but not transmit.

Sooo, to counter my melancholia and I am going to get my arse into town and shoot something that vaguely resembles a halfway decent photo.

Not sure what it will be but I'll let you know when I get there.

I hate those moments of self doubt.

ack ack ack!

As the Martians in Mars Attacks say.

Sometime I feel like I am blogging into the void, if you're watching please say hello. I need a little TLC and validation right now.

I am human afterall....

Hypno Cat wants to eat your braaaaiiiiiinnnnnn!

Hypno Cat strikes back!

Seriously, took this one at Artsfest 2007, felt sorry for the poor bugger dressed as this cat. It was sweltering that day.

Daily Photo #75

Well, looks like I have my internet connection back for the moment but who knows if it will disappear again. I think it's a local thing but Virgin Media are, well shall we say a bit crap when it comes to telling anything that remotely resembles the truth. Anyway, I shall stop slagging off beardy media.

This one was taken on my birthday in Manchester last year.


I think this gargoyle probably has a virgin broadband connection ;)

I'm gonna have to be quick because my broad band connection is intermittent at best today.

And I'm breaking a rule (again) with two cat pics in one week.

The Godfather (or Godmother)

I don't think I have a future in pet photography, everytime I take a photo of Buffy she looks *evil*

Daily Photo #73

#73? Was that the title of some crap 80's kid's TV show with that curly haired bag of talent, Tommy Boyd?

Maybe? Maybe not?

Anyway, photo #73 was taken last April at the site of the WTC in Manhattan. Someone stuck this on the bars and it really got me thinking.


I've never seen any of these stickers elsewhere in NYC, I wonder if someone printed it out just to place on the walls surrounding the site or whether there are other ones out there. It could be a band or viral marketing thing, I don't know but it certainly stuck in my imagination.

Quite a positive message so I'm going to use this as my mission statement for the rest of the week.

Daily Photo #72

Well, finally back at work after annual leave and felt more shattered than ever although I have some good news as I get to travel down to Devizes next week to go see some projects! Woo-hoo! Out of the office and meeting people is good for the soul, and all.

So, anyway I'm trying to improve my snacking habits but still not reaching my "5-a-day" fruit/veg wise (more like 3.5) but trying. Maybe this will inspire me.


Braeburns rock!

Daily Photo #71

This was shot last week around the canal basin where we befriended "Canal Cat". We don't think he had an owner but he looked pretty well looked after, presumably from all the treats donated by passersby.

Canal Cat 2

He is a fab cat and seems to live around the back of the ICC. I hope we can drop back and see him again.
