Inspector V Beefheart

canon eos 40d, tokina 12-24mm lens

today me and a few friends helped our other friend make a short film for his coursework.
i took a few photographs of the goings on and generally documented the occasion.
this is what one of the scenes looks like, it is one of the funniest things i have seen this year, fact.
i cant say too much because it will give it away but i will post a link once its been finished and edited and looks nice.

it was a grizzly day and a lot of hard work, but it was easily the most fun ive had in ages.

on wednesday i woke up and was sick, a lot.
this is the third time this has happened this year so i decided to go to A&E to get it properly checked out.
after some poking and umming and arring the doctors concluded that i had appendicitis.
i dont remember much of the next 2o or so hours because for most of it i was dosed up on various painkillers and asleep whilst men and women in masks took apart my anatomy bit by bit.
however, i did manage to sneakily take this photo after the operation, this was basically all i saw for two days.
i also learnt some stuff about hospitals.

they are boring.
the food is poor.
the old men sleep a lot.
the curtains always get stuck.
the old men shout a lot.
'are you allergic to anything' is everyone's favourite question.
they are boring.

despite all this, the fact that we have access to free healthcare is awesome.

Charlie in a box

canon eos 40d, tokina 12-24mm lens, old luxon flash that gives me electric shocks with wireless receiver

today the boxes arrived that we are going to use to store the entire contents of our house, whilst we move to a new one.
small children love boxes and we have about 50 of them, so it was only a matter of time until charlie was inside of one.
i like the details in this photograph; the label with all the writing and the fingers poking out underneath.
we have an abundance of striped carpets in our house.

Christa bike

canon eos 40d, tokina 12-24mm lens

the majority of today was spent helping chris put together his new fixed gear bike.
watching a bike being built is immensely satisfying, even if your not doing very much building.
his is the one on the left - the white one with the purple grips and wheels.
this photo also shows phil and joe in mid hi-five.
not staged.

Mothers day

hoovering on mothers day, me and joe are doing the presents and cards later when he gets back from work.
i've got him a bottle of coke as well for when he gets home, i'm sure that will go down a treat.
in uni news, i have unconditional offers from everywhere.

this is the hotel room that i stayed in last night, this morning.
i went down to falmouth yesterday and had my interview there today, the uni is dead nice and everyone was friendly.
asides from that i have basically just been wrestling with the public transport system, i won though, because im home now.
i played the fake yawning game again as well, i think ive honed the technique somewhat as i managed to get two people in half an hour and one girl twice.

Bus horse

a horse eating under a bridge.
i had climb over a gate, walk through loads of mud and nearly get attacked by another horse to get the angle straight on, i think it was worth it though.

Trains and waiting

canon eos 40d, tokina 12-24mm lens, makeshift jumper bean bag

waiting for a train home from my uni interview today.
it was cold, my train was delayed by 30 minutes and there we're coke machines that ate my money.
i invented a new game to play in public spaces where everyone is waiting around.
basically you try and make people yawn by fake yawning yourself, its amazingly satisfying and makes you feel like derren brown, i got two people in an hour and a half.
