holga retrospective 08/09

(viewed 1050 times)
I thought it might be a nice idea to post some holga pictures that I've taken over the past year or so. these pics are just sitting around on my hard drive gathering dust anyway. they would probably never see the light of day if I didn't present them on some website or other, and seeing as I don't bother using flickr any more, it's gonna have to be here. sorry.

expect a veritable smorgasbord of tasty holga treats over the next few days and beyond...

happy belated origin day!

what with all the faffing around with my moblog design yesterday, I forgot to post an image for origin day, the 150th anniversary of the publication of darwin's on the origin of species. I celebrated the event in a small way by attending a university of edinburgh lecture/debate thing hosted by zoologist aubrey manning.

if the weather was any better today I might have gone out and taken a suitably naturalistic picture to illustrate this great occasion. instead, the image above is from the simplified tree of life poster sitting on my wall. if you don't own a copy of this poster already you can order it free from

also, to hear the great edward o wilson talking about on the origin of species check out...

new (improved?) soma coma

(viewed 844 times)
so I've been playing about with the look of my moblog quite a bit recently, trying to make it a little more funky now that I have the benefits of a six month (free!) subscription. the images here are for the banner at the top. what do you think, any good? not too garish?

one problem - when I open my moblog in internet explorer my latest uploads start half way down the page. anyone know how to fix this? the problem does not occur in firefox.

first of november

it's traditional in eastern europe amongst other places to honour the dead by placing candles on graves on the first of november. as you've probably noticed today's weather conditions are not ideal for lighting candles in open areas. a trip to the local cemetery earlier today was cut short due to billowing wind and driving rain. so instead here's a wee online memorial - the candles will burn longer this way.

pics three, four and five are from first of november last year.
