Dismaland, Quantocks and Cat

We were pretty fortunate to get dismaland tickets as they seem to go within seconds of being released. Luckily a ticket did become available BUT it was £20 per head instead of the expected £5 however this was due to it being a friday evening slot with various bands on stage. It was a bit […]

A week off

Not strictly part of my week off, this was the preceding weekend – a land rover was parked outside sainsburys in taunton FULL of balloons! I think there was some sort of competition along the lines of “guess the number of balloons” This seems a bit an annual event – the sidmouth regatta – with […]

Exeter, Seagull and Flower Show

I had not been to Exeter for a while so decided a trip there was in order – it has the advantage of being only 25 minutes away by train. I have tended to get out at Exeter St Davids, however Exeter Central was the same price and only about 3 minutes by train between […]

BlankSlate theme

I’ve been using the “Sandbox” theme for a while and wanted a change so had a look at some other WordPress themes.

My “style.css” file is pretty basic just: html,body{background-color:white; color:dimgrey; […]

Leica M8 with Rawtherapee

These were mainly shot at f/4 although Leica digital cameras cannot record aperture as there is no data link between the lens and the body. I quite like the B&W preset profiles in Rawtherapee – there are 4 to choose from. 1/125s, iso160 1/250s, iso160 1/250s, iso640 1/180s, iso320 1/125s, iso160 1/250s, iso160 1/250s, iso160 […]
