In my last blog I lambasted the hassles I was having with scanning negatives lately. The Lomo DigitaLIZA holder which I have used for years simply wasn’t holding the latest batch of films that I’d developed flat – sometimes to such an extent that they wouldn’t even stay in the holder itself. I got slightly better […]Read more "New Scanner Results…"
There is a cruel irony to the fact that as I have rediscovered my inspiration for making music, my inspiration for taking pictures has simultaneously dwindled. I fear that the two are related, and that it’s just part of the ebb and flow of creative process. Either way, I’ve not really felt much drive to […]Read more "Post Japan Faces and Photo Motivation"

After our trip to Brussels last December, we headed down to Amsterdam to spend Christmas with my parents. I hadn’t realised quite how close the two cities were, so we ended up ditching the ridiculous original plan to fly back to Scotland and then back out in the space of a few days, and instead opted to […]Read more "Christmas in the Netherlands – 2015"
This weekend turned out to be one filled with a variety of social engagements. Well, mostly just drinking. Lee ventured to the south side along with his old ‘flatmate’ AK, to meet up with a friend who was looking for a flat in the area. As it turned out, instead of going to the pub as […]Read more "Friends Weekend"
