Design is easy.....?

Always on the look out for design/film/animation/photo taking inspiration - Oh, and travel ideas, (although anything in Japan will always win hands down for me). Currently based in the North East of Scotland.

my nemesis

(viewed 958 times)
I completely loathe this household appliance. It haunts my sleep. My partner can wheel it around expertly and it probably feeds his gadget needs when assisting with housework. He assembles it as if it were some sort of star wars gun. I on the other hand find it cumbersome. It won't wheel where i want it, it falls over instantly if i *ahem* 'gently' pull it along. And it's bloody heavy. It hates me and i hate it but today i have to do battle as it's my turn to vacuum. :-(

running on empty

(viewed 1600 times)
One of the mildest but dullest mornings to go for a run but i did it. Hard going after a bit of hibernation on my part over winter. My friend who lives near sheffield is also a keen runner but getting motivated is tricky at this time of the year so last night we decided we would run 'together' at the same time but hundreds of miles apart. We did it too! Feel better and both intend on doing same again tomorrow. Hope the weather is better and i get some decent pics though.....

I love my holga camera! Getting used to taking photos with it now. Looking forward to developing the film to see what I get. Already the batteries have come loose from their casing and the back almost flew open. All part of its cheap charm....
