Right, I’m off to Swindon. Tomorrow is the evaluation panel for my EPSRC proposal for a Centre for Sustainable Distribution Research.
Got to say I am quite pumped and on target for this since we’ve had to fight hard all the way and I am determined to give it out very best shot.
Wish me luck!

Peeking Bull

I love this shot from a fellow rangefinder user over at flickr. I think the tonal range is great but the expression on the bull is so human. In fact I do wonder if it is actually a stuffed bull and the taxidermist has ‘interpreted’ the face?

Anyway, after a week of feeling truly awful I feel really good. Just got a lot of work to catch up on quickly so why am I blogging? L8r.

Hi. I am not at all well with an earache so I’ve been pottering through some old pictures I took in Brussels back in June. They were pretty graining so I had to Photoshop them a bit and they have ended up looking rather dreamlike, which I kinda like.

Feel quite unwell today. Slept a lot, took lots of painkillers for my head and watcheda bit of TV about the Nazis and Hirohito.
Decided that I must do a big ebay sellout and made three game mountains in my study. Tomorrow I shall purge my DVDs and then I must decide about the Bronica.
It will be liberating selling all that stuff!
Then I can buy a Voigtlander 25mm lens for the Leica!
