home wasting bandwidth since 2003

December 2012 ... Hello, and welcome to the photo blog archive.

Things have been quiet here since 2008, so I've decided to retire this little collection, for now at least. In part, Facebook has taken over, and it does a better job than this. But then there was the getting a girlfriend, moving house, getting married, starting a family, moving house (again), and the commuting to and from London. I just don't have the spare time that I used to!

I'm still uploading mobile phone pictures every now and again. But otherwise, for the amusement of my future self, and friends who feature here, here's what we got up to in the olden days.

          A particularly laid-back bike build. But it's finished, and it was worth the wait

          The great outdoors, gravel roads, volcanoes, lava fields, beardy action, and way too much chocolate
