My son and I really enjoy beach-combing. We have spent hours at a time on beaches finding stones, shells, old pottery, worn glass… We have several carrier bags full of stuff we’ve found on beaches. One day, we’ll do something with it all. One of our very favourite places to go is the beach along [...]
Here are some more photos from our trip.
Well, Brian did his talk. It was very well received. I was so happy for and proud of him. Here are a few photos from the past few days.
On first thought, I’d say that 2007 was fairly uneventful. My past few months have consisted of me being ill and feeling like I’ve done very little other than try and get healthy again… Then, when I properly think about it, I realise that the whole year has been MENTAL! January Me and Charlie Brooker [...]
Some new photos from CERN taken whilst doing the CERN Podcast. These are some lovely photos from the computer centre, mainly from the ‘computer graveyard’. Click for bigger versions at Flickr where you can see more photos.
Well, today Sunshine was released on DVD. I thought I’d take this chance to just share some of my Sunshine memories (well the ones which come with photographs which I can more or less make public) from the past two years… During filming at 3 Mills Studios, I carried my ‘office’ with me to and [...]
OK. So… We’ve renamed our little cat after one of the characters in Sunshine (it’s spoilerish, so hover for name), cos he’s always in your face. I’m wearing an Icarus II uniform jacket. And judging by my eye, I’m turning into a freakin’ infected (nasty and spoilerish). Total DNA Dork.
… of my son.
OK. So, I’ll explain the technique I used to take infrared photos with my mobile phone camera. First, you need to check and see if your camera is sensitive to Infrared light. An easy way to check this is to point a remote control at your camera and press one of the buttons. If you [...]
These past few days I’ve started taking some photos which have particularly excited me… with my mobile phone camera. Yep. I’ve found out how to take… wait for it…. infrared photos with my Sony Ericsson mobile phone. It’s seriously cool. They do need a bit of Photoshop tarting (adjusting levels and contrast etc) as a [...]
I know some of you just visit my blog for the cat stuff (*ahem*lloyd*ahem*). It’s been sorely lacking lately and I’m sorry. I’ve been sitting on my bed doing some work. Tiger is curled up on my lap and Rocky is sitting up next to me just staring… Tiger… Rocky… Awwwwww….
It’s just so fucking cute.
There was licking. Rocky seems to be taking to unclehood rather well. We’ve had a couple days of growling and hissing, but nowhere near as bad as I was expecting. Today, Rocky woke up very curious and not particularly threatened by Tiger. He’s been making the ‘mmrrrrrp!!’ chirping sound that cats do with both their [...]
I’ve got a new baby. He climbs loads more than Rocky did. This one is definitely part monkey. Rocky is part dog. He seems to really like to climb up you, sit on your shoulder and then kind of lean on your face and lick your nose…
