January in Photos

A bit closer to on time with this month. ~ A month of opposites. So few photos. No motivation to shoot. Still had lurgy. Self pity hit a highpoint. Normal for me in January. But. Bikes were ridden. A new bike. Runs were ran. With new people. Full team membership on the mountain rescue team was attained. With joy. Ecstatic… Read more →

December in Photos

Two months behind…. ~ I’m not the biggest fan of December. It’s dark. It often involves forced interactions with people I’d rather not. It’s usually too busy at work to get anything else done. I didn’t shoot much during the month, only really taking the camera out when I wanted to take photos at an event, or during an ocassion.… Read more →

October in Photos

On time this month. Or at least somewhat. Three years married now, a new addition makes our traditional weekend of running and wandering in the mountains a bit different. But still, off to the Lake District we went, camping of sorts, introducing the new generation to some weather. It still stuns me every-time I come to the Lakes just how… Read more →

September in Photos

Later than planned. But a batch of photos from what was a decent September, the first month in the past five I’ve felt anything like an active human being. Tiny human continues to do tiny human things. I spent a lot, but not enough, time in the Lakes running and racing. It felt good to be out there again. I… Read more →

A Year With A Leica Q.

In 2013 my father died. To paraphrase a friend, I realised I’d already dug myself a rut, or a grave, one is just longer than the other. All of this lead to different goals and a change of my outlook on life. Spend time doing more things, in better places, with decent people. Everything else is superfluous. Cut away the… Read more →

August in Photos

A quiet month. Spent most of it trying to raise the tiny human that is becoming self aware. Like Skynet, but with more oozing. A few trips into the mountains for everyone. The earlier she gets out and about the less abnormal it will be for her. No point in waiting until the dead of winter, lets make the most… Read more →

Scotland – Second Time & Jura Fell Race.

A while coming as I’ve been slacking with writing. After last years excellent trip, we took the opportunity to have our first real family holiday this year in Scotland. Arran first, Islay, Jura, Mainland, Glenco, Skye, then the Lakes. We covered about 1,700km. It made sense to combine it with a trip the the Jura Fell Race – http://www.gregorymay.ie/?p=3853 Suffice to… Read more →

July in Photos

A busy unpredictable month. A lot less photos taken than normal. Tiny human becoming more of a human. An extended trip to Ireland. Some local exploring down lanes I didn’t know. Training with CVSRT. Training the tiny human to be an outdoor human. A wedding. Another trip to Ireland to spend time on a mountain. Read more →
