I am a kitten

The best thing I find is to take some time to spend alone, somewhere quiet and allow the noise generated by all those ideas shouting for attention to subside. It's not easy but it does help you…

Die photos, die!

At last, a positive selling point for those of us who use Windows, maybe they should add that to the list of features.

Lemur therapy

I have a long standing feeling about why there are far fewer Brits in therapy than (by movie and TV standards alone) our US brethren: Pubs.

When British men get wound up to the point that they…

Shooting things

- Beginners luck, maybe :o) (Dunstan)

First person arcade games more like.

I'm not a gun nut either, but I'd certainly like to fire one (in a range) at some point.

Great post, as usual.

Hot damn that's impressive.

I'm curious though, as a blogger, what does the back-end look like? By that, I mean, what does the 'add new post' screen, 'edit post' screen, etc look like? I'd be…

Barbequing with the rich and famous

Now we know how they book guests for Jerry Springer - BBQs.

I have to say that most people outside of Europe (not just the US) seem to think that it rains all the time in England (even the…

We didn't play well, but we still deserved to win, that goal was fine, we won in the 90 minutes.

I have to say that I had figured that a GF may well have been the reason for a lack of posting.

Dance like nobody’s watching

I got that quote in an email a while back, makes perfect sense to me. Basically: you only get one chance at life, live it to the full no matter what others think.

Watching Chicago in your undies. No wonder gay men are attracted to you. I think SF is having a disturbing affect on you!

The last three days

Although a guy who doesn't find Dunstan particularly attractive at all (no offence, this is probably because I'm straight, but talk about competition if I did), I think the Gaynip Club is an…

Being single

He's been in the States for all of a week and had two gay advances and now he meets a lady. Dunst you must be positively oozing sex appeal.

I really enjoyed SF, except for walking all those hills. Nice sunshine, but a lovely breeze to cool you down.

Photo manipulation

Aside from the original grainy feel from the film, looking at the original, you can see what I think is strip lighting (or something similar, i.e. fluorescent).

Twenty-one photos

Thanks Margaret, but I run Moz 1.4 and although the tooltips appear, all it says is "View a larger version of this image" so it's not very descriptive, I could check the code of course...

Great pics again.

Two things:

Do you switch shooting modes for the B&W or use the computer?

Can we have some captions, I always find images nicer when I know what I'm looking at.
