3 Parisian Things

Monday, March 28th, 2011

Sacré Coeur The church (Basilique, in fact) of the Sacré Coeur in Montmartre. It’s quite a climb through streets aptly named things like Rue du Calvaire, roughly translated as “time of hardship street” in common parlance. You can get a cog-wheeled railway which mounts a steep incline instead, called the funiculaire. Recommended if you want […]

Same Routine, New Year

Wednesday, January 5th, 2011

A Christmas break is great, but it’s soon over and after wishing you all a Happy New Year, it’s back to the grind of the routine. The roads were OK for the first Monday of the year, but the queues came back quickly and the routine soon pulled me in, not unlike gravity when you […]

Frozen Snowy Swing and Slide

Sunday, December 19th, 2010

There’s been a lot of cold weather and frost so far this December, and a fair bit of snow. I’ve never seen quite so much fall in one morning as I did today though. I reckon we’ve had 10-15cm (4-6″) of snow in a few hours. Last night there was already a bit. It took […]

It’s Mostly Happening at Flickr

Saturday, February 16th, 2008

I’ve mostly been updating news over at Flickr lately. Or rather, posting photos to Flickr and possibly including information worth reading underneath them. Time constraints and other things mean that I’m not particularly productive on blog posting of late. If you’re subscribed via RSS, you can get both blog updates and Flickr updates in one […]

Happy Belated New 2008

Tuesday, January 8th, 2008

I’ve added recent photos from my FlickR account to the RSS feed, so if you read me via email updates or RSS you should now get photos when I update them as well. We spent Christmas in Marrakech, and most of the recent photos were taken there. Unfortunately, Yasmina’s grandmother Ginette – who lives in […]

Playing on the Slide

Tuesday, November 6th, 2007

Nathan loves the park close to home, where he can play on the slide, a rocking horse on a spring, and a sort of spinning top. Even now with the colder weather, it’s great to get out and watch him run around and climb up to the top of the slide. I thought the cold […]

More on Flickr: Save or Cancel

Saturday, September 29th, 2007

Just what is it that makes Flickr stand out from other sites, so that it can boast an impressive 2,000+ photos uploaded per minute? That’s 2,880,000 a day, and over a billion – or a thousand million for those who think a billion is a million million – per year! Their tour covers some of […]

Discovering Flickr

Monday, September 24th, 2007

Flickr is a photo sharing site that was bought up by Yahoo! back in 2005. I had a few photos on Yahoo! photos from about 2001, and they’ve now been migrated to Flickr. This encouraged me to explore a little, and without further ado here are a few pictures to get you started exploring what […]
