I've been working on some badgers that visit my garden, over the last year.
There is something special about the badger. They are both incredibly peaceful and beautiful animals with which my garden plays host to several, that pass through when night falls, as they forage around their urban surroundings. It was a truly wonderful day when I discovered these most unexpected of…

Kingfisher

I may live in one of the most populous cities in the world, but today, I saw, for only the second time ever, a Kingfisher. It was narrowly (but easily) escaping one of our local cats.

The one I saw previously was on a walk in rural England, almost where you'd expect to see one. In the heart of urban Shanghai, was a surprise.
The common kingfisher also known as Eurasian kingfisher, or river kingfisher, is a small kingfisher with seven subspecies recognized within its wide distribution across Eurasia and North Africa. It is resident in much of its range, but migrates from areas where rivers freeze in winter.

Tagline
Javascript Developer (AngularJS), technologist, gardener, photographer (ex-press), writer, husband/step-dad, amateur naturalist, transplantee, freelancer, director of own company, loves to cycle and explore the world outside the office!
Introduction
Freelancer in the world of web and photography.

Nick works for himself through his company Nick Lewis Ltd which specialises in web technology and photography. He has worked for a variety of big companies over the years including Zurich Financial Services, Transport for London and Estee Lauder to name a few.

Nick now predominantly undertakes contracts with companies that last anywhere between 2 months or an entire year at a time. His technical skills are very broad as he loves to learn new things all of the time. If you follow his ramblings here on Google, you'll get a better idea of what appeals to him at any given point in time.

Techy skills include:

  • Javascript - jquery, backbone, angular, knockout
  • MongoDB
  • ASP.NET & C#
  • JQuery
  • SQL
  • HTML
  • CSS
  • XML
  • Google Maps
  • CMS - Such as Umbraco and Drupal
  • PHP
  • Windows Azure
  • Amazon AWS
  • Heroku
Now all of that stuff is very very technical and goes over many people's heads but Nick loves it and gets very excited to meet other people who do.

Nick is also a photographer and did once work for a celebrity based photography agency in London, called Filmmagic. In fact he also worked with Retna and UPPA at times. He met a lot of famous people as a result but then chose to give it up in order to focus on things that are more realistic in the business sense. Nick now only supplies Alamy with photos taken on his travels.

If you ever need someone to take care of your web needs. Give Nick a shout.

Its weird writing this in the third person!!!

I am very pleased with my new office space indeed. Now approaching the end of my second week here and I plan to stay here for some time as I build up my new business services. The premises are run by very friendly and professional staff. Ferneberga House is a great hub for business and if you are looking for somewhere to base yourself, I can highly recommend this location! No hidden costs at all. All very clear cut compared to others.

My Wife and I recently were staying in the area and had a Taste Card. We found this pub through the TC website and decided to give it a go. The gamble was worth it, the food was glorious, lovingly prepared, served with bounds of enthusiasm and went down a treat. The new owners were very friendly and made us feel most welcome. We shall go back the next time we are in the area. You must check out their Pie menu by the way, its an alternative to the main choices and all home made. A micro brewery is in the making too and the restaurant interior is beautiful too, with high vaulted ceilings, a bit like a tithe barn.

A little while back Fiona Phillips the TV presenter took over. We had been there before that happened and went back about a month ago. It is still as good as it was the first time and we had a stunning roast beef. In fact we even spotted Fiona, her husband and son there. They had stopped by to wish one of the regulars (we assumed) a very happy birthday.

Fish great and their chips are nice and fluffy if that makes sense. I often find chippies chips a bit too dry.

One of the most fascinating and stunning churches I've seen. The story behind its history is truly fascinating in itself.

We have eaten here probably 4 times now. Yes, that is because we really like it. The food is all fresh and innovative. If you go in the Autumn months, you will be sure to find some great game dishes on the menu, especially Venison. Highly recommended!
