Tractorg

August 30th, 2013

The latest innovation in farming combines both tank and tractor technology to make this wonderful machine:

The farmer is surrounded by more screens than your average software developer. Although after a while he had to stop and poke about with the trailer in a rather low tech way.

Portland

August 25th, 2013

Went down to Portland near Weymouth the weekend before last to go camping and climbing and generally be outdoors-y. Here, our encampment!

This Way

I really liked how this old gate looked when I was out walking this afternoon.

Caterpillars

July 28th, 2013

Very very hungry caterpillars. Saw these ones having some sort of conference on a plant between Henley and Greys Court this afternoon. Also a bee, a fly, and an unidentified red insectoid.

Creatures

July 21st, 2013

Furry. Looks friendly. Alas couldn’t figure out how to zoom in my phone’s camera before it scampered.

Not furry. Looks alien. Do NOT approach! Figured out how to make my phone zoom in for this one. Digital zoom is totally not worth the effort. Are Nokia really the only ones innovating in this space? Should just take my regular camera everywhere…

Mel Smith

July 21st, 2013

Was genuinely saddened to hear of Mel Smith’s recent death :(. So many memories of watching his shows as a child.

Copenhagen

July 14th, 2013

Also, totally forgot to post photos from when I visited Copenhagen last month. Here they are! The castle at the end is the one Hamlet was supposed to live in.

Outdoor Climbing

July 10th, 2013

I’ve failed terribly at posting my photos on here of late. I blame work. Here are several I took when we went outdoor climbing in Majorca at the end of May.

Somewhat unsettled weather, but it didn’t actually rain until the last day.

P1060674

Climbing on the beach!

P1060676

About to go on an adventure off the edge of this cliff to get to the actual climbing venue.

P1060681

This American dude’s friend had some bright pink tiger-print “meggings” that I was strangely envious of. I totally did the route he’s climbing too.

P1060682

Not climbing on this beach, obviously.
