Hotel lights

The hotel I'm staying in this weekend is the weirdest I've ever been in. Last night I put my water bottle down on the floor & it rolled toward the door. The girls I'm staying with call it The Wonky House. I can see why

Water feature

Sheffield is full of water features. Water pours everywhere. I loved it.

Hoar Frost Leaves

One good thing about cold, frosty autumn mornings? Lovely photo opportunities!

I made this! BBC Sherlock and John amigurumi dolls

In a break from scheduled programming, I interrupt this photo blog to bring you a series of photos of two dolls I crocheted for a friend and sent off to her this week.

She, like me, is a massive fan of Sherlock Holmes and BBC's recent Sherlock series in particular. As a result, what more could a girl possibly want than her own Sherlock and John? Exactly. Nothing on earth could be better :)

Allow me to introduce you to Sherlock and John:

Aren't they great? I love them to bits and I think they're awesome, even if I do say so myself. Would you like to see some more? Yeah, thought so...


For all you attention-to-detail fans out there, check these out:

They were all comfortably packaged-up in a nice padded box to head off to their intended destination. When my friend opened the package, this will be what she saw:

And for those who are fans of the show, you may recognise this particular scene from Study in Pink, the first adventure our two heroes had together. I took these pics just for funsies.

"Want to see some more?"
"Oh God, yes"

Petals and dewdrops

From the table at my cousin's wedding, silk rose petals and glass beads of water. All is not what it seems

Sunset skyscraper

Sometimes it's worth being stuck in a queue to get out of a multi-storey carpark at sundown after a clear day

Dougal tree

That probably won't make sense to anyone who didn't grow up in the 70s & 80s in the UK

I need to get out in the city again. My photo reel & my soul are short on urban delapidation

On a day like today I wish I could've just sat there all day

Hospital Property

In a lot of old hospitals all the things you see around the place are stamped with ‘Hospital Property’. I always said if I got to the point where I was wearing underwear with ‘Hospital Property’ stamped across the ass, it was time to take me to a field and shoot me.

Bridge; trees; sky

We're still getting some stunning weather here. Looking forward to the leaves turning just a little more

Guard hut

The guard hut at the entrance to the business park where I sometimes work, taken sometime this summer when the roses were still in bloom. It's only big enough to fit one chair and a shelf for a telephone and a radio. I've never seen anyone in it.

The sky, it continues to move me

After a beautiful day, rainclouds gathering in the afternoon were particularly dramatic

I like my cross-dressers with stubble AND eye-shadow

One of my rare people pictures - one the working girls at the entrance to the club in Block9 at the Glastonbury Festival.

Tickets go on sale tomorrow morning. I’ll be up early to get in there and get ours booked.

Autumn leaves begin to fall

It’s that time of year again. Falling leaves of russet and gold litter the pavements and blow in the autumn winds like swirling confetti.

I love this time of year better than any other. It’s death and decay at its most vibrant and beautiful. A natural part of the cycle, the inevitable culmination of life.
