I’m fond of telling people who aren’t familiar with Hogmanay about how it’s traditionally the biggest night of the year in Scotland.

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"
It’s been a while since I’ve published anything on here, which is annoying. I’ve been busy making music and learning about electronics, which has sapped a lot of my time, but I’ve also got a bunch of film that I can’t bring myself to develop – and so I’ve come to a sort of standstill […]Read more "Rachel + Hasselblad"
