I am married to Spiderbaby and live in Banbury, Oxfordshire after eight years living in the USA and Sweden. I am working and training as a clinical scientist for the NHS in Oxford.

There are now over ten years of photographs on my blog! It all started with a photograph I took on the 1st of May 2004... It's been a wonderful journey, thank you all who have shared it with me, and made this blogging community one I keep coming back to!

Interesting things I read recently:

"Only one in five people born [in the UK] since 1975 believes in God".

"For every dollar invested in the Human Genome project, $141 was returned to the US economy". Francis Collins, NIH

I am Pavlovs_dog on PSN and would be happy to link up with Playstation-owning mobloggers : )

Too Much Information: The first album I ever bought was the Fraggle Rock soundtrack. Pretty cool, eh? I was only 16 : )

Was nearly arrested taking this shot! It was on private land. In retrospect I suppose that's obvious, but there were no signs to indicate it, or that photography was forbidden, and it's not as if I had to jump a fence to get in... Some security guards just take their jobs too seriously...

Oh, cameras around kids, that be teh evil in the U.S. Glad you got away! I really like the composition of this shot.

And not even close to around kids, unless they keep them in a compound out of town too.

Ah yes. The memory of having to explain to a cop about the iconic nature of yellow school buses to British people (like London red double deckers to everyone else), while desperately packing to leave the country, will stay with me...

Like the vividness of it.

I had a video project idea that involved opening doors in different parts of the world. Discovered security guards don't like you making films of you fiddling with doors. That was understandable. The grief you got wasn't.

There were no kids! It was just a bus park! I did get a bit cross with the cop when it was implied I was some sort of paedophile.

Crickson, I know, but there don't need to be kids, just something associated with kids, like school buses. The hysteria here borders insanity.
