July in Pictures

TweetJuly consisted of two things – a trip to the Isle of Man, and quitting my job. I’d not been to the Isle of Man in over 20 years.

I’ve helped and been… Read more →

December in Photos

TweetTwo 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 →
