The Electron, the first computer I ever owned.
Back before social media was a thing, someone said it was vain to have a page with my pictures on. But now we have Twitter and Facebook and Instagram so who's laughing now? Now I guess the question is more: why do you still have a personal website? Well at least it gives me a place to back up my photos that I actually have some control over.
I'm more comfortable behind the lens than in front, but a while back I started trying to keep a current picture on my site. Before social media it was a lot harder to know what people looked like, which was a problem if you ever wanted to meet in real life. Or just were really, really nosey.
New home in Nottingham
(Commentary is from when this page was put up in a private section to show my friends my new house. Pre-Facebook, obvs.)
You know you're in for trouble when you get a 'phone call from your lawyer starting "You know how you were supposed to complete on your house today...?"
A selection of fox pics and videos from my back garden
For some time now my parents have spotted foxes in their suburban garden, and so while I'm staying with them I've been putting food out to try to see them for myself. Sure enough, we have what appears to be a breeding pair venturing in at around the same time every night, just as it's getting dark. There definitely seems to be a male and female, often coming into the garden separately but also occasionally at the same time. However, we haven't seen any young yet, which may be due to the trickiness of getting through our fence (the hole is quite high up).
These foxes have been seen jumping from a standing start up on to an ivy-covered chickenwire fence, and balancing on the top before jumping down. One of them also appears to sleep on the roof of our shed when the weather's sunny, which would require some ivy-climbing prowess.
