Well, I didn’t quite manage a totally legit one-a-day – to get the whole thing done has taken slightly over a year. But this shot here is the last of my 365. A sunset behind a telegraph pole seemed like a fitting end.
On to the next thing.
Here’s a salutary little lesson for me. Snapped this on a whim the other day, ran it through the plastic bullets randomiser for 365 bullets, saw it on the iphone screen, filled it under “eh, it’ll do”, and got around to blogging it today. Thought no more of it – really hadn’t thought it was anything more than a just-about-acceptable shot – until a nice person on Tumblr reblogged it. And then I came to look at it on a decent sized screen, and realised that it was much better than it looked on the iphone screen, or at least, I liked it much more.
Seriously, folks, if you like this, click through to flickr and view it at the largest size you can.
Another holiday photo from two years ago, this time from Amsterdam. Yes, you’ve got me. This isn’t actually any sort of attempt to make art at all. This is all just the digital-era equivalent of the boring bloke down the road who makes you sit through all the slides he’s had made of his two weeks in Torremolinos. So you just sit there drinking your Blue Nun, while I get the next batch ready, OK?
Yeah, I know, you wait for ages, then a load come a long at once. Tough. This one’s from some shots of The Correspondents at White Mischief. But not the one that I was at the other week, oh no. These are from May 2009. It’s taken me over two years to get around to putting this set of shots onto Flickr. I honestly don’t have a good reason why, I just got distracted by a shiny thing, and then forgot about them. But here they are. I know some of you are fans of Mr Bruce here, and some of you will be once you’ve taken a look, so go ahead and click through to Flickr for a few more.
You might recall a photo of mine from some years ago, featuring a woman and a snake. It’s the most popular photo I’ve ever taken, as measured by flickr (largely because I got linked by Warren Ellis and then BoingBoing). Well, by coincidence, the lady in question happened to be performing at White Mischief the other week. So I got some new shots of her, and I rather like this one – sufficiently different to my previous work to be worth sharing, I think.
I was at this conference today, and made this notebook, in addition to sphericising tomato puree, having fun with miracle fruit, watching some extremely interesting musical performances, and making a little plasticine octopus monster. The notebook contains the phrase “Hugo was rescued from the attic of a dead magician”, which in addition to being a factual statement made by one of the speakers today, is possibly the finest story prompt I have ever heard.
