It’s yesterday once more

Or, at least, a year ago. Time is noticeably flying by faster as I get older and older. I took this photo in New York a year ago today on the Staten Island Ferry. It’s a good way to see the Statue of Liberty and the Manhattan Skyline, and it’s free. This was taken with […]

Instagram, yes Instagram

I’ve had a private Instagram account for a while for family stuff, but set one up for my film photography last year, only to find that getting the pictures up there was almost impossible without a dedicated phone, and switching accounts was a massive faff. However, thanks to some other technical jiggery-pokery I can now manage […]

Now he took some great photos, but he could see […]

This will replace my Flickr […]

I’m taking part in Oxford’s Artweeks festival this year in a group show called “Oh Brother Where’s Thou Art?”. Since we’re showing at The Ultimate Picture Palace in East Oxford we’re going under the name of The Ultimate Picture Palace Artists and some of us are doing work inspired by film and cinema. All the […]

EB3’s Response to the Arts Cuts

Emma Bob 3, writer and DJ on the essential Buffet radio show, offers up this thoughtful piece about the arts cuts. Typically I’m late to the party when it comes to blogging about cuts, but it’s never too late to party for your right to fight, so here’s this ace video for anyone who hasn’t […]

A free SVG alphabet

I am a longtime Flickr user but since I’ve never had a pro account (so far) I have lost track of the number of images I have uploaded in the six or so years I’ve been active on there (Flickr allows you to upload lots of images but if you have a free account you […]
