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 Gold room

Literally. The middle two pictures are supposed to represent the West and East, respectively. The woman in the middle represents Sweden bringing peace and negotiation to the world.

Or the Stadshuset. The top picture is of the hall that they hold the Nobel Prize ceremony in. The third picture shows the debating chamber ceiling!
