A quick trip out with Iain today, making use of one of the last free weekends that I have before leaving for Ireland. As usual, he came up with a bright idea for a location for us to shoot. Continue reading →
As it was January, a time of resolutions and unlikely ambitions, I got carried away and decided that, as I was already 2/12ths in, I’d have a go at creating a ‘publication’ each month for twelve months.
