I’m an amateur photographer. I bought myself a decent camera some years ago and have been clicking away happily ever since. My photos can be found on flickr, tumblr and my own website.
I've mostly been read history lately, though I’ve amassed a great deal of SF over the years too, among other bits and pieces. Political biographies occasionally catch my attention too; politicians are a lot less dull when writing for posterity rather than speaking for the headlines. (I can’t help but feel that on the whole they were much more interesting in the 1980s.)
I’ve managed to grow a few edible or attractive things in the garden. Most recently: sugar snap peas and strawberries.
