Rohan Gunatillake For Offscreen Magazine

I had the pleasure of meeting Rohan and Emmie of Mindfulness Everywhere for the latest issue of Offscreen Magazine. I’ve wanted to meet Rohan for a while. He lives locally to me and is marrying mindfulness and technology. He’s written a book, built an app, and created a physical product.

I also love Offscreen Magazine. I’m a sucker for print magazines, and Offscreen is of particularly high quality. It’s also of a subject that interests me—creativity, business and tech. You should check it out for a dose of inspiration.

 
 

Hello

Gosh, this is the longest I’ve went without updating my photo blog. I won’t be making a habit of it, it just so happened I’ve been ‘busy’. (I hate that word. Despite being ‘busy’ I’ve still found time to watch Casey Neistat Vlogs, so it’s less about being ‘busy’ and more about not prioritising taking pictures.)

I have some exciting trips coming up, so that will change. In a couple of weeks I’ll be in New York for my sister’s hen do. When I get back from NYC, a bunch of us avid Instagram users are heading to Isle of Skye for a photo trip. FUN!

 
 

For Fika Sake

Another new addition to Glasgow’s coffee (and cake) scene, For Fika Sake. A Swedish inspired coffee shop, ‘Fika’ means to have cake with coffee. Which I did. When in Rome…

 
 

Special People

On Thursday I bought a lens. The first lens I’ve bought in 4 years! I now own Canon’s L series 24mm ƒ1.4. I don’t normally like wide lenses, but I find ’em handy for weddings and I’m way too comfortable with the 50mm.

I took a couple of test shots at my gran’s house, which turned out to be quite special as I caught her happily interacting with my nephew, Blake, after being upset about her ill health. I love my family.

 
 

150 Miles Of Scottish Scenery

Rab and I set our alarms for 5.30AM and met in Balloch at Loch Lomond. We waited at Luss for the sun to rise then proceeded to Glencoe, stopping off wherever the light or scenery felt right.

As a set these photos aren’t very cohesive, but it’s an accurate representation of the day. A peaceful sunrise with a hint of orange sky, followed by a washed out snowy, landscape, interspersed with strong gradients of the mountainous highlands. The light would change so suddenly, so dramatically.

As much as I love traveling (well, not the flying part), it’s fun, cheap and accessible to get outdoors in your own country and explore. Do it!

 
 

That Office Light

My favourite part of our office space is the light. No wait, the dog. No, I mean the giant bean bag. Actually, I like it all.

 
 

Pact Coffee Nespresso Pods

When I saw Pact’s Kickstarter for Nespresso-compatible coffee pods, I was all over it. I’m not a subscriber to Pact, but I’m familiar with their brand and like what they do. I had faith they’d deliver great coffee in a pod.

As it’s the first production run, there are a few niggles with size (I think they use a thicker foil for the pod). Taste-wise, I prefer these to the official Nespresso pods.

P.S. Discovered my cajón drum makes for a nice backdrop.

 
 

My Nephew, Blake

Words can’t express my love for this little boy.

 
 

Storm Gertrude

I’m meant to be in Copenhagen, Denmark, but I’m in Glasgow, Scotland. Storm Gertrude messed that one up, so it’s safe to say we are not friends. Instead I awoke and drove towards Glencoe. Bad idea.

Mini Coopers aren’t designed for snow (I was skidding all over the road). As I turned to head back, I drove past another Mini in a ditch. I hope they are OK. Plenty of other cars had stop and were tending to them.

Needless to say, this weekend hasn’t turned out quite as planned! At least I still got to use my camera a bit.

 
 

Seb & Mili

Finnieston has become a hive of activity, probably in part due to the opening of The Hydro. Every month there seems to be a new bar, restaurant or coffee shop. Last month, I passed a new addition on Argyle Street, Seb & Mili, an artisan bakery and cafe. I stopped by for an Americano.
