1. Back to school…

    Six months or so on from a fated rainy day morning commute to work, I’m on the edge of a return to work. It’s a slightly nervous edge too, like the feeling of something new and unexpected. It will be unexpected if my trusty mac fires up and connects into...

    Hold onto your expensive German socks…Leica is releasing a new M camera, somehow a shrunken version of the M. No doubt they’re tired of Fuji X series cameras stealing their thunder, for a quarter of the price! The new Leica Mini M is to be launched on 11th June.
  3. Another day, another doc…

    Yesterday’s mission to Frenchay hospital entailed multiple visits to X-ray and the consultant, words of encouragement to start phasing out the ortho boot and crutches, news that my right leg isn’t quite as “fixed” as previously announced and a small protrusion on my right elbow is a piece of wire....
  4. 6 month rant

    A reminder bleeped on my phone to announce that it’s been six months today since the car accident. It’s probably not good to dwell on dates, but life in limbo is caught up in the next date, the next step in the healing process. Today’s date, as meaningless as it...

    Tonight I spoke to Clare, a woman who stayed with me whilst I was trapped in the car, following the accident, until the paramedics arrived. As a mother, she said she wanted me to know I wasn’t alone at the scene, that her daughter Charlotte, a trainee doctor also helped,...

    More shameless self promotion and ideas above my station, but I have to keep the brain ticking over, so entered Exposure 2013, an international photography competition, with a chance to win much prestige and trips to New York and Paris. And you can vote for my images here!
  8. Waiting for pain killer

    “Bloody hell, this still hurts.” A vocal realisation I made at the top of the steps today. Nobody was there to witness my miserable wonder at the fact that it’s still a slow painful climb, one foot, one precarious stone step at a time. I haven’t long choked down a...
