A first foray into freelensing. I don't know where the term came from but it basically mimics the tilt effect of a tilt & shift lens. They're usually used to correct perspective distortion but perhaps would be more famous for creating 'false' miniature photos.

Could be fun, but I just don't want to give the elements easy access to the delicate innards of my camera. Also, not the best example of a distorted focusing plane. More to come?

One a side note, 100th picture blogged. It's out of focus and blurry. True to form for photography. Wahey!

Kiwis and Cardiff

What a weekend! Packed trains, sub-zero temperatures, snow, ice, kiwis, Cardiff and rugby. Glad I brought my camera.

Below: Wales vs. New Zealand at the Millennium Stadium. The cold certainly didn't keep the crowds away.

Norweigan hunter's casserole

With venison and mushrooms. Thanks goes to Arnstein, the chef of the day!

Organic pumpkin soup

Beautifully comforting, and entirely makes up for the fact that it's Monday.
