The Lewisham Raindeer, originally uploaded by Adam Tinworth.

Now, the real strength of mobile phone cameras is this: the unexpected photo opportunity that you come across while going about your daily business. Lewisham town centre had some form of Christmas show going on today, so I grabbed a few shots with my phone while I was doing my shopping. Without the phone, I’d have missed the shot.



Newport at Sunset, originally uploaded by Adam Tinworth.

A picture to compare and contrast with the last one. It’s a similar, but trickier, lighting situation. The difference here is that this photo was shot with my EOS 300D digital SLR. Quite a difference.

The stand along digital camera has a long life ahead of it yet.



Theobold’s Road, originally uploaded by Adam Tinworth.

I grabbed this shot with my phone yesterday afternoon, trying to capture the beautiful light playing on the buildings.

And, well, the camera wasn’t up to it. Still work to be done there, I think.

Winter is finally here which, frankly, is not great news for me right now. You see, the flat rennovation is still in full swing, and two rooms are yet to be plastered. When those rooms are done, we”ll put the central heating back in. Yes, that’s right, we have no central heating.

So, for now, our sole warm room is the bedroom. I brought an old electric heater back from my mum’s and it’s already doing good service

Could be worse…



Ducks outside the pub, originally uploaded by Adam Tinworth.

Today is a pub lunch sort of day. I enjoyed bangers and mash in front of a roaring fire in a 15th century pub.

The pub actually keeps ducks and chickens, in a very free range manner. We had to chase a particularly stubborn chicken off the road outside the pub before we could sit down to eat.

Still, some exercise in the cold helps build up an appetite.



Winter’s Morning, Suffolk, originally uploaded by Adam Tinworth.

In the last week, winter seems to have arrived. I’m up in Suffolk at the moment, visiting my mother, and woke to frost, ice and fog.

Ah, the joys of scraping ice off the car’s windshield…

We in the Hellhole (our affectionate name for the flat we’re refurbishing) are firm believers in digital music – we just don’t buy CDs any more. In my case, it’s the combination of convenience and price, for my wife, it’s all about having fewer things cluttering up her living space.

So, I am hugely annoyed that the new Kate Bush album has yet to appear on iTunes. Each (New Music) Tuesday, I check in the hope that the album has appeared, but it doesn’t. Now, Charles Arthur has found a plausible reason why. It’s enough to drive me over to the Podsafe Music Network.
