Random Photo of the Day

Continuing with my new tradition of adding something visual each day, today is the turn of a photograph. It’s a photo I took at Wales Rally GB (rallying is one of my big loves, enables me to combine two of my favourite interests in one go) and this is a photo which stood out for me. It might not be technically brilliant, but I like it and I think that as long as a photograph is liked, that’s all that matters.

Random Video of the Day

I am going to attempt to post a video, a photo, a bit of design, something, every day. It will be something I like, something I love, something I find funny, whatever. You get the idea.

Today see’s one of my favourite ever videos found on the internet, the infamous Techno Viking (made famous from a video by Matthias Fritsch – visit his website

Here’s the video, enjoy. I’m sure you’ll find it as entertaining as I do

No wedding in Budapest sadly…

Well, me and Pepper are back from Budapest and what can I say? I loved it there. The gritty communist architecture and the solemn almost hardened look on the older Budapestians was just like nothing I have seen before. I have been to many different cities but Budapest was for me the best yet.

It was bloody cold but that didn’t ruin our Valentines weekend at all, it made the photos a little dull and stale, some blue skies would have been nice but overall it was amazing. I think both me and Pepper agreed that we would go back, maybe when it is a little warmer though…

And no, Pepper didn’t find me a gypsy wife. Damn!

Below are some photos from our trip, I took over 700 so this really is just a snap-shot. I also decided that I don’t think I want the 24-105 Canon lens, it just doesn’t cut it compared to the 24-70, enough of the geek talk. Here are the photos!

Decisions decision – Canon 24-70 or 24-105?

I am currently pondering over a Canon 24-70 lens and the Canon 24-105. The 24-70 is one of the best lenses I have ever used (some sample pics from it below) and I do dearly want one, but since our economy buggered up, prices have shot through the roof meaning its not quite so good baby brother is far more affordable now. So, I am currently hiring a 24-105 to try it out, going to take it to Budapest as well, so photos will appear when I get back.

Both seem like amazing lenses and both have their advantages, the 24-70 is a f2.8 lens whereas the 24-105 is an f4. The flip side is that the 24-105 has wider reach but then it is considerably smaller as well.

Who knows what I will decide. Will see how I get on in Budapest and go from there I guess.

Budapest here we come!

Well, me and Soph are going to Budapest on Friday for Valentines, romantic eh? It was all Pepper’s idea as well which was cool and she’s paying, how great is that.

We are not both anxiously waiting to see which one of us marries a gypsy first, it seems our fancy 4 star hotel is in the rather poorer district of Budapest which has a high gypsy population. Watch this space for news and wedding photos.
