Oh come on, it’s almost as if they were named for the sole purpose of creating mirth and uncontrollable bouts of the giggles. Why oh why are they called TITS? The derivation would suggest it comes from some old meaning of ‘tit’ that means small, or perhaps similar to ‘tip for tap’ (tit for tat). Anyway, here in Sussex, we have lots of tits. Every year we seem to have more, probably because they tell tales of our house during…

I’m meant to be NOT typing today, so as to give my RSI-ridden fingers a chance to recuperate, so… just enjoy the photos. There are a few notes, if you hover over them. In the case of the one with the tiny moon, you’re going to have to buy a print to actually see the moon — I think it’s the smallest new moon I’ve ever seen. Also, one of these photos is dedicated to a friend of mine whose…

I’m stretched really thin at the moment, so the best I can do is a damn history lesson. Let me tell you a little about Lindfield. It’s one of many ancient towns that dots the south of England. It has existed in some form or another way back into prehistoric antiquity, but apparently it entered ‘modern’ history back in 765AD. There’s a photo (below) of the oldest ‘original’ building in the town below — it’s called the Church House now…

This is my house, just before we moved into it. The photo was probably taken in 1995. I’ve almost forgotten what grass looks like. What the sun looks like. What frickin’ daylight looks like. Europe is currently the land of eternal twilight. Admittedly, I wake up around 2pm so I’m not doing myself any favours, but the cloud coverage is so thick, so ever-present, so OPPRESSIVE that it just stays DARK. The only patch of sunlight was a few days…

Ta’da & Snow Drama Seb: Believe it or not, it’s 4:15am in this photo. That’s not dawn either — that’s light from a city about 10 miles away. The colour itself is light pollution I think (though remember, this is long-exposure, so it wasn’t THAT orange, but definitely a bit orange). Look how still I held my arms for 30 seconds! (I’ve had a lot of practice over the years…) I’ve been waiting all week for the perfect conditions for…
