Refresh Glasgow

It’s been a while since I took my camera with me when I haven’t needed to. This disappoints me as taking my camera everywhere was how I found my feet with photography, and I often got good, candid portraits as a result (I even took my camera to the dentist). Last night was Glasgow’s Refresh. I’m making more of an effort to socialise with people who work on the web as I enjoy picking their brains and often find I learn something new (last night, for example, I learned the opposite of agile – waterfall!), and it also happens to be a good laugh.

Having spoken to some of the folk at Refresh, it seems there’s some interest in learning photography. I’m thinking of putting together a photo walk in Glasgow, so if this is something you’d like, leave a comment so I can gauge interest.

 
 

Pretty Things: Maps

When @rougebert tweeted about a wee gem of a map he’d just bought, I had to check it out. After all, having not long moved to Glasgow and with an apparently growing interest in maps, it sounded like something I could benefit from. Turns out there were other maps too, and I ended up buying “How To Find Old New York” and “It’s Nice To Be Alone In Paris”. Funnily enough, Paris has been on my mind a lot lately. As mentioned in my last post, I’m eager to take a break somewhere in Europe, and with Paris being a city I’ve never visited as an adult as well as being so close to Britain, it’s likely to happen at some point soon.

 
 

Bright Falls

Did you know I like video games? Mark gave me an amazing housewarming gift; a bright falls poster print. For those who don’t know, Bright Falls is a Washington town found in survival horror game, Alan Wake. Also, my dog Indie always seems to find her way into any photos I take of myself. Ugh!
