America in Photos

Struggling to really figure out how to start this post on my holiday to America. It’s been a couple of weeks since returning from the States and feels like memories of the holiday are already starting to get a little bit blurry.

I had an amazing, if a little exhausting, time. Not one moment was spared. We, perhaps, had a couple of hours one afternoon where we truly were doing nothing. But other than that, every single day in the full two weeks were spent doing something or another. (If we were in Portland, that “doing something” was one of two things – eating or drinking.)

So rather than some long-winded tale, how about some sort of photo story? I’ve posted a few photos of the trip on my Instagram, but here there are a few more than I’ll be posting here. (Warning, there are a LOT of images behind this cut – so the page may take a little while to load.) Continue reading America in Photos

Nutshell Film Review: The Equalizer

The Equalizer

The Equalizer was a TV show I grew up watching. I grew up watching in the sense that I have vague memories of sneaking out of bed, sitting on the stairs while I listened for the theme of The Equalizer to kick in. Mum and dad would always know I’d be there, so they’d call after me and I’d be sitting on the sofa with them watching this show.

I don’t actually remember watching an episode, but I remember this. Only this. It’s a story my mum and dad will tell people too. Edward Woodward – The Equalizer! Continue reading Nutshell Film Review: The Equalizer

Updated Fave TV Opening Title Sequences

Top TV Opening Title Sequences

A little while ago, when this blog was just starting out, I listed out some of my favourite TV opening title sequences. A few years later and the opening title sequence is still an endangered species. While some TV shows are still creating fantastic openers, others are opting out, like The Knick and Fargo. I guess, maybe it’s something to do with time. Or something more complicated I don’t know about.

Who knows, I still enjoy a good opener and since I last listed my favourites, I have a few new ones. So thought it was about time for my to update the list. Continue reading Updated Fave TV Opening Title Sequences

And I’m back from the land of plenty

Back from ‘Murica and still extremely jet-lagged (Though I don’t think we fully ever adjusted to US time.). A full rundown of antics will be up soon. When I’m a bit more with it and able to write something coherent down.

Just to tease you a little bit I will say that in the 4 days we were in Portland we hit up 24 different places to eat/drink, experienced some proper snow in Flagstaff & the Grand Canyon and generally had an amazing time.

Have over 300 photos to sift through, not including random phone snaps. It might take a little while, but I’ll get there. Stay tuned!

Photo: Staring right through me

Snapping away at the farmers market the other Saturday I took this very accidental shot.

Going through the photos in Lightroom a couple of days later I came across this photo. This woman staring right back at me through the lens. I had no idea.

Street photography is one type of photography I’d like to do more of. But I’m not yet over that feeling of being that person randomly on the street with a camera, taking photos of random stuff.
