What’s this blog all about?

I don’t really know, I originally started it as a vehicle for my photography, and it just developed from there, I just do whatever interests me.

I’m no big fan of the trend for increasing the colour saturation on everything and then declaring it to be high-art, I prefer a desaturated, beached-bypass look, and I often also take no care to take a clean image, I’m quite happy with a grainy look.

I usually post once a week if possible.

I would like to thank J.F., without whose encouragement this website would in all likelihood be only half as interesting.


The posts listed here are the latest to be uploaded in the various categories and projects I’ve been working on of late.
