Best of 2018

TweetI realise I’ve done my usual 12 that I liked the most from the year. But I wanted a mulligan. A do over. A bit late, but such is life. Nor is it just twelve. Overall, I took a lot of photos I like. A mixture of digital and film again. Lots from the Leica Q and the M6. Many… Read more →

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. When a round of the English fell championships was announced we made plans to go straight away – on another note, being a sovereign country, I have no idea how a… Read more →

Favourite Photos of 2017

TweetOne image for each month. Each image, I feel, defined that month. Jan – Sony a7: Spring in Manchester.

Distractions

Tweet I’ve been reading a lot more since I returned from the Divide. Books, comic books, long form opinion. Winter and an annoying injury took hold and I’ve had less time on my feet and wheels to let them recover, but more time to exercise my brain. I’ve never come to March with so little miles in my legs. It… Read more →

2016 Wrap.

TweetOdd year. A year of two distinct halves. Part 1: January through June we’re dominated by the one thing, the Tour Divide. Nothing else mattered. Work, nope. Friends, nope. Family, nope. Home…well yes, the only thing that mattered except training was homelife and future plans. Oddly, this near sole focus had little impact on the rest of my “normal” outside… Read more →

Tour Divide Print Words

TweetFirst set of words in print from the Tour Divide this year: http://grit.cx/magarchive/issue-009 – small paywall for digital at £1.50 a month, or £6 for the print issue. I’ve been working with the folks over at Grit.cx since its inception, what feels like many moons ago. I’ve always contributed from a cross perspective, and quite often just ranting about my own ideas… Read more →

Other words

Tweet It’s been a bit quiet but that’s because I’ve been writing words for print of late. Also, getting some photos into print. Not going to lie, that was a real focus for me this year and I’m pretty stoked/happy/surprised that it’s happened. Just like I was once told I’d never get a degree/ words printed I was told that… Read more →
