tumblr


I've not been able to keep up with blogging at all recently. I have, however, started to use Tumblr more - mostly just to save photographs I have seen and liked on other blogs or around the web.

For anyone interested in inspiring photographs, feel free to follow me or add the RSS feed:

You can also find my photos on flickr.

I will return to blogging when my heart is in it - thank you to those of you that read & follow :)

i've been tired



I haven't updated in a while because I've been so very tired. I'm not sure if it's because I'm coming down with something (if so I've been coming down with it for weeks), whether it's the cold weather or if I'm just simply not getting enough sleep. I nap a lot, which helps, but a couple of hours of concentrating on anything and exhaustion sets in again.

Haiti Earthquake

I just wanted to make a quick post to urge anyone who hasn't already, and who can afford to, to make a donation in aid of Haiti after the earthquake on Tuesday.

Google has posted satellite images of the destruction the earthquake caused here.

I am sure there are several charities with appeals currently running, I personally donated through my charity of choice, Oxfam.

Thank you.

holga & expired film



I got my first Holga film back from the lab this morning. The film is heavily expired, so I wasn't sure what to expect. To be honest, I didn't think any of them would turn out at all.





You can see the others on my flickr.
I've got some photographs back from my Olympus XA2 as well, but I'll post those next time.

My friend managed to drag my ears away from my recent addiction to Arrah & the Ferns by introducing me to Mumford & Sons:



Some of my aims for the new year:

1) Take more photographs

2) Learn PHP

3) Set up a directory of UK Etsy Sellers (this will incorporate #2 to some extent)

4) Craft more

5) Blog more

6) Comment more

Essentially it could just be changed to "procrastinate less".

Happy (belated) new year everyone!
