I was that weird kid with long hair at school that didn't participate in or enjoy sports, listened to heavy music and generally didn't like people. later in life I would go on to become an IT manager amongst many things whilst the popular kids became parents at a young age and ruined the rest of their lives.
This is my site, amongst many other things my passions include reptiles, loud music, web development, open source software, bearding and motorbikes. I write about my interests at no regular interval and in no particular order. You may not like this, you may love it, I'm not bothered either way.

I could not resist and so off we headed for sunny Scarborough. Continue reading →
Just a short one, saw these a couple of weeks back (March 9th 2015). My god they were good, nice to see Pepper Keenan back where he should be. Down are alright but these have always held a special place in my heart. Continue reading →
An interesting one this, spotted it on the 28DL facebook page and figured I’d go for a wander round. I’m quite a fan of what their community produces even if at times I do find them a little snobbish towards people like myself who aren’t in it for the photography, merely the adventure.
