Originally from the UK, I am currently living with Spiderbaby in the sub-arctic city of Umeå in the north of Sweden.

Currently I am working part-time on a research project at Norrlands universitetssjukhus while studying Swedish. In addition I am trying to make my photography hobby pay by making some of my images available to buy from twenty20 or from me directly.

There are now over ten years of photographs on my blog! It all started with a photograph I took on the 1st of May 2004... It's been a wonderful journey, thank you all who have shared it with me, and made this blogging community one I keep coming back to!

Interesting things I read recently:

"Only one in five people born [in the UK] since 1975 believes in God".

"For every dollar invested in the Human Genome project, $141 was returned to the US economy". Francis Collins, NIH

I am Pavlovs_dog on PSN and would be happy to link up with PS3-owning mobloggers : )

Too Much Information: The first album I ever bought was the Fraggle Rock soundtrack. Pretty cool, eh? I was only 16 : )

The piece was slowly rotating so it actually took a minute or so before I could work out exactly what the shape hammered into the mesh was. It's easier to see from the shadow cast on the wall.

FilbertFox and BaggieBoy come to Umeå!

So naturally we visit an old iron foundry! The lovely iron rose was made by the blacksmith in the other picture.

One of these things is totally different....

This guy is driving me crazy parking his over-sized motorbike in the bicycle stand. There is lots of space in the parking lot, but oh no, he has to put it there. The bike stand is usually packed and this makes it even harder to find a rack.

It was even worse yesterday - he parked sideways taking up 6 bike spaces!

I hadn't actually heard of the Swedish solar system until Mat put me onto it.

Here is Eris, my local planetoid. Personally I think this just goes to show exactly how far away from civilization I live. At least Eris should feel at home here in the cold!
