Welcome to my blog, which I started way back in December 2002 - long before social media was a thing! With the advent of Facebook, Twitter etc. I don't write that often here now, but you never know when I might feel the urge to do so.

Purbeck Raindrops

Friday, October 28, 2011


A slightly different view of Corfe Castle, taken while out volunteering on the Swanage Railway today:

Technically this shot isn't particularly good (it was taken on a whim with a point and shoot camera, after all), but I think the raindrops make it interesting.

Needless to say, this wasn't taken through my usual windscreen - the shot was taken from the cab of one of the line's heritage diesels, where I was riding as a second to Norden to assist in shunting some wagons.

My ride for the afternoon was 1960 built 1550hp class 33 diesel-electric D6515.<br><a href='https://www.flickr.com/photos/jalapenokitten/6294838745/' target='_blank'>https://www.flickr.com/photos/jalapenokitten/6294838745/</a

Mixing it all up

Monday, October 3, 2011


One of my friends in the church has sent me this photo of me setting up the mixing desk for the open air church service at this year's Bourne Free Pride Festival back in July:

Looking at a photo like this, it seems amazing that anything works on the day...but regardless of whether it does, Pride Worship is amazing!
