Memory Overkill

memory

1 terabyte (for main backup as my existing 320 gigabyte is nearly full), 320 gigabyte (about the size of a A5 moleskine and will be used for when I’m traveling) and 8 gigabyte (to beef up my new HD cam).

Liberation

Liberation explores a great quote by Jorgen Leth on limitations and imagination.

Shot on my new Samsung VP-HMX20C HD using the macro mode it’s my first ever creative endeavour (and first upload to vimeo—be nice).

Music also by me via Garageband—feel free to comment as I need to learn…

No matter how tired / rough / sad / lonesome / grumpy etc I feel, this never fails to create a smile…

(I used to be a ‘greaser’ when I was in my teens!)

5p

5p

I was 5p short at the shop today. The lady simply said I could pop it in tomorrow (I go there often as it’s the only shop in the village). Sometimes a simple act of trust is so much more than the price.
