From back in September; my first attempt at making a self portrait ambrotype! I built a head brace from a monopod and guitar bracket. This one was taken in daylight in the shade - 4 seconds at f/5.6 - underexposed but looks pretty cool!

Loving "Uptight Downtown" by La Roux right now. Heavily influenced by many artists and songs... but in a great way!

"Let's Dance" by David Bowie, Banarama, "Girls just wanna have fun" by Cyndi Lauper just a little bit...

Who else!?

Catherine & Gary's beautiful wedding at Mavis Hall Park is now on the blog! Including a lovely ceremony beside the private loch, highland games and an evening bonfire!
Very wet weather was forecast for Catherine & Gary’s wedding at Mavis Hall Park but somehow, magically, it stayed dry for most of the day and the sun even came out! Thank goodness it was dry as it...
