Sky Then

It's been a really bright day here, but the wind still cuts quite cold.

Kitchen Kontinued

(viewed 715 times)
This spectacular goo is currently in the George Foreman Grill-thing draining dish. It looks like some sort of solidified meatbits in their own sludge, which is probably exactly what it is.

Something I like to do to get a bit more light into the rather feeble CCD in my T610 is hold a finger over the lens, then quickly take a shot whilst it's overexposed. It's quite a guessing game, since what's on the screen at the time of the shutter isn't what you end up with - the phone either delays a bit or takes readings over a short timeframe and averages the results. Or something.

But it's possible to get different amounts of exposure with just a finger, as shown here.

Sink Update!

(viewed 1935 times)
Here's the latest from the sink o' doom.

The cleaning ladies came this morning (we're live in Uni accommodation). I was very apologetic about the state of things inside of and around the sink, and told them we'd get those responsible to deal with it. Now the around-sink area is cleaner, but the bowl still has some terrible, terrible things in it.

The pyrex bowl in the top pic has something like custard still liberally coating its insides, which occasionally breaks off and floats elsewhere, then gets stuck in the drain.

The other shot is of something odd that's in the sink: it looks a little bit like stuffing such as one might get with a roast. I'm really hoping it's not, but I can't think what else looks quite so odd and clumps together in such a horrible way.

Also note the edge of a sponge-with-Brillopad-thing in the sink. I'm of the opinion that the tools of washing-up should be kept near but not in the sink itself. Harrumph.

Camellia Handles

(viewed 529 times)
As befits a Georgian greenhouse-thing there's plenty of oddery-pokery knocking about, including these wonderfully MYST-esque handles for controlling the ventilation.

Grate Sculpture

Sean Pickard, Asian Fairy-Bluebird, 1999-2002, neon

Seeing OJ's post prompted me to revisit Camellia House and the neon sculpture under the floor.

The flower-pod from near the entrance has gone and the place looks a lot barer in winter.
