Edinburgh Panorama

Wednesday, November 28th, 2012

Its over a year since I went to Edinbugh but I’ve just figured out how to stitch the shots I took together to make a panorama. It was a rainy day (you can see some of it in the distance and a drop on the lens) and the shots that make this up were taken […]

Skyfall

Wednesday, October 31st, 2012

Well it’s hard to write about this bond film without spoilers so I’ll try to keep this short. Bond returns to the form of Casino Royale for me with the latest film.  Stripped back to the bare essentials of Bond against the villain (and his many minions).

Blistering Round the Biennial

Sunday, October 28th, 2012
