I spent my 4th birthday in India. I was obsessed with Humpty Dumpty at the time, so: matching Humpty Dumpty cake and piñata.

Took me ages to smash it after my dad insisted on spinning me around loads of times. When I eventually nailed it, my blindfold was on so tight that by the time i got it off, all the toys had been taken by the other kids, and I cried. Mums explanation of the differences between the children living in the UK and those in India did little to console me at the time. Spoilt bugger!

Edit: Shortly after this was taken I flew away with those massive collars.

I bought me a 70's rangefinder. Forget five frames per second, with this you'll be lucky to take one frame every five seconds.

I'm using it to learn better technique, especially when it comes to capturing the decisive moment. Holding down the trigger on a DSLR, popping off ten shots and hoping that one comes out good just won't cut it now, will it?

I've bought some diafine and i'm going to develop my own black and white negs too.

From Spacehopper to Chopper (with 3-speed Sturmey Archer gear hub!)

edit: Also note plastic AK47 and my first dog, a black lab we named "Huggy Bear" after the character from Starsky & Hutch.

Completely unrelated to this picture, i've created another group that i hope folk will engage in and find quite fun. I see lots of mobloggers with quotes in their sidebars and profile pages, and the recent post i made on Boethius' wheel got me to thinking that maybe we could make a group out of the idea of "quotations".

Anyway, if you're interested, more information can be found at the group page: http://moblog.net/quotation. Join in and unleash your favourite quotes on the good people of moblog.
