Photoing the man playing a flaming tuba

So today I was up to my neck doing other things. Well no not really, I just forgot about doing this, until it was bed time. So, here are some photos of people photoing a man playing a tuba with flames coming out of it: Photoed by me, under Blackfriars Bridge (the one with a … Continue reading Photoing the man playing a flaming tuba

Twelve 2015 photos

I spent a lot of today doing an elaborate Samizdata posting with twelve photos in it, and now I am doing the same here. Most of these ones are just of the I Just Like It sort. Whether I have the time and energy left after posting the photos to say something about them remains … Continue reading Twelve 2015 photos

Food memories from the outer suburbs

Photographs are, as all the world has recently been learning, except those whose business – paid or unpaid – it is to complain about what all the world has recently been learning, a wonderful aid to memory. And many of the happiest memories of our extraordinarily comfortable and frequently very happy times involve food. So … Continue reading Food memories from the outer suburbs

The text of my talk for Christian Michel last night on the impact of digital photography

As I said in the previous post, my talk about digital photography at Christian Michel’s last night went well, in the sense of me feeling it went well, and it seeming to be well received. I occasionally put my sheets of paper down and extemporised upon some point I was making, but mostly, this was … Continue reading The text of my talk for Christian Michel last night on the impact of digital photography

Lunch in Paris

I’m back home now, but yes, earlier today I had lunch in Paris. I don’t normally do food photoing, but I reckon this one came out pretty well: This photo was an afterthought, but that helped because I photoed the food while it was being eaten rather than before we started, which worked out better, … Continue reading Lunch in Paris

New robot ship

My thanks to Facebook and Actual Friend Tim Evans for alerting me to this: It’s Britain’s First Robot Ship. The coolness of that fake-photo is a big reason for this posting, but not the only reason. I am actually interested in robotised transport. For some bizarre reason I found I was able to read the … Continue reading New robot ship

On the boringness of my immediate neighbourhood

I am aware that, of late, I have been failing to post recently photoed photos here. There’s been stuff from five years ago. from ten years ago, and even from seventeen years ago. I hope it’s been interesting and diverting. But, and especially given how “historic” right now surely is, there’s been a lack of … Continue reading On the boringness of my immediate neighbourhood

The Broadgate Tower … etcetera

The Broadgate Tower, because I like it. This particular City of London Big Thing is in a slightly different style to the more celebrated Big Things just to its south, in that it is one of those towers that is pretending to be a little clutch of separate towers. No one of these towers is … Continue reading The Broadgate Tower … etcetera

That a manufacturer of something complicated is using 3D printing to make it is not news

I get emails from Google concerning 3D printing. These emails happen daily and each contains links to many reports of 3D printing being done by this or that enterprise. When I first learned about 3D printing, I thought it was a revolutionary technology, one that would “disrupt” all manner of processes and technologies. This was … Continue reading That a manufacturer of something complicated is using 3D printing to make it is not news
