Sand and Castles

Heading back from Peterhead I kept stopping to take photos and paddle...

Dunnottar Castle, as featured in Sunset Song

Lighthouse in Aberdeen

The beach at Aberdeen

The street leading down to the sea front in Peterhead. There were no seals or selkies though...

Matthew's Christening Party

Matthew was christened on Sunday and I was over harassing people with photography as usual (and reading books about mammoths). Here's everyone with Matthew and his godparents Becky, Diane and Luke.

Marcus with camera

Andrew with worm and (Russian Mammoth) sunflower.

Alison, Diane and Becky inspect the sunflower

Michael with Luke and Matthew

Fiona and upside-down Matthew

Matthew and David

Ferocious, hand-eating baby on the loose...:-)

Eilidh and Stephen's Wedding

I drove up to Peterhead last week to Eilidh and Stephen's wedding where I was singing with some Chapel Choir folk.

Cutting the cake

Angus, the official Wedding Dinosaur

Hilde, Griet and Anna

Sheena and Richard

Amy looking shocked

Helen and Katie
Andrew and Rosie strike a strange pose... does Heather, with Hilde and Sarah in the background.


Everyone limbers up to catch Eilidh's bouquet...

...and Hilde is victorious.

Sheena and me.

More photos over here.

A more open place

Still on a Potatojunkie/Morag kick, here are a few attempts at long-exposure layering of Facebook albums in the style of Philip Masel's "A More Open Place" (move your mouse over to the right hand side of the text to see the actual photos, which are really lovely). I'm not sure how much different this is from layering them in Photoshop, but it's definitely quicker and quite entertaining (although it would have helped if I'd remembered to set the camera back to RAW...)

Plus some Titan shots...

And "We See Lights" at Threads of Sound

Potatojunkie's Photos

...of Morag and Colin's wedding are now up over here, complete with excellent lighting, actual non-Photoshopped rainbow (which I failed to spot!) - and this completely mad shot of the Computing Science contingent (note Jon's dynamic pose and co-ordinating tie/jacket ;-)

Got caught in a terrible vortex earlier, but managed to avoid being turned into an aspidistra...
