Arsenal (not the team) Pt 3

I can see, amongst the barely noticed pages of my irregular blog, that there's been a fair bit of interest in my articles on the Arsenal AI camera add-on. Ok, so it's probably time to admit how little I'm using it, but how useful it is being when I do. To recap, the Arsenal was... Continue Reading →

Arsenal (not the team) part two

Inevitably, I was going to shave the plug end. If you have no idea what I'm waffling on about (join the club) then click here. So, a little judicious filing away of the black plastic and wala... whalla... oua'la... how on earth does one spell voilà!? 😉 I've kept nuclear power stations on the bars with short...

Arsenal (not the team) part one

So after Kickstarting this little box of tricks what feels like a long time ago, I recently got notification of despatch. This is a first thoughts review of Arsenal: The Intelligent Camera Assistant.

It's an attempt to encourage my photography, which has kind of slipped into iPhone snappage recently and I want to get back to the Canon dSLR. Mind, if you look, half my uploads are currently iPhone pictures... Critics welcome,... Continue Reading →


Ok, so it's all about celebrating failure (or of course, success in foiling the damnable plot), and it's a frightful waste of money and a source of pollution, and oh so lovely... irresistible to the camera, and one day I'll get it right. In the meantime, here are some firework pretties from this evening at... Continue Reading →

Seeking Balance

There's something meditative in stacking rocks. On the Autumnal Equinox at Freshwater West, near Pembroke, I spent a happy couple of hours after work seeking the balance of the rocks at the balance of the year... The beach at Freshwater West is sandy and in the summer full of surfer dudes. The northern end is layer after layer... Continue Reading →
