now we're out this blog will be updated more regularly once again, and the two recent posts are testament to that fact.
i did take lots of photos of people watching the world cup today but they all seem depressing now i look back at them, the happy faces and the hope in their eyes.
mine too.
instead i chose this picture i took earlier today of two of my best friends doing what they do best - waking me up.

This playground is for people of all ages

last night me and joe and chris and phil went for a bike ride, we ended up going to the new playground at west bay, 1am was the perfect time to try it out without worrying about knocking into small children.
it was awesome fun
we stayed there for about an hour and contrary to what local media says we encountered no 'drunken yobs' so all was well.
sorry for the lack of posts recently, ive been busy...
no seriously i have.
a bit
not really

World cup

taken trying to get a glimpse of the screen showing the england game yesterday whilst standing behind some tall people.
i dont know who it is, so if you don't want it up here then let me know.
im thinking about doing a whole series of world cup photos, im not even really that into it, i just like how into it everyone else seems to be.
there are a lot of flags about and stuff.
in other news, me and mark had a minor food fight tonight, it was messy
i got rained on heavily whilst walking home.
dry now though.

we went to my other grandparent's house the other day to have some tea.
i have always wanted to photograph some of the things in their house as not much has changed since my childhood, its just a very nostalgic place for me and i had a lot of awesome times there whilst growing up.
this is the plastic towel rail that has been nailed to the wall in their bathroom ever since i can remember, always ripe with fresh clean towels.

i want to be like them when i grow old.

Old title alt title

canon eos 300, zenitar fisheye lens, fuji film

if you started reading my blog from about march onwards this year then you wont be familiar with the photos above.
the first one used to be the big image at the top of my blog, with andinmyhandsacamera written on it.
i then changed it to the current one in a bid for something more up market and proper.
the newspaper fame got to my head.
anyway, i found the actual prints the other day and came across another shot taken whilst at that bus stop thats been somewhat overlooked, i think i like it better.

today i slept for ages, probably about 11 hours (from what i can remember) of unbroken sleep.
then i woke up and had a family BBQ for breakfast, cooked by my granddad.
mum, jp and charlie came up as well so that was nice.
also on the subject of lovely home cooked food - my friend laura has just started a cooking / foodie blog, so if your into that kind of thing check it out here...

It was chris' 19th birthday yesterday and to celebrate we all went paint balling.
this is the dress that we put chris in for the final game - it made spotting him a great deal easier and needless to say he got shot to bits.
it was such an awesome day, lovely weather and company.
happy birthday chris!

Architect school

canon eos 40d, tokina 12-24mm lens, photoshop hell

yesterday me, joe, joe, joe, johnny, phil and tim got some food and drove out to a hidden little architectural college in hooke woods.
it was amazing.
they have like a 350 acre forest full of wonderful creations ranging from the bizarre climbing frame bed / living capsule seen above to the more standard big tower look out post things, there were chickens there as well.
we were there for most of the afternoon generally playing on everything and exploring.
i don't know if we we're actually allowed to be there or play on the things, so sorry architect people if your reading this, it was ace though.
then we got some pizza and headed to mark and joes for the evening.
easily the best fun i've had in ages.
