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 : )

Nobel museum

Also included an exhibition on Marie Curie.

Inside Storkyrkan (the big church)

The figure on the horse slaying a dragon is, of course, St. George. It is claimed that the sculpture contains relics of St. George. I'd be more impressed if it contained relics of the dragon.

Venice of the North

They call Stockholm the "Venice of the North". There's definitely a classical feel to many of the sculptures...

It honestly does light up, although not when we were there. : (
