"hot action lol"

My girlfriend recently posted a message on Freecycle advertising our old tent. There were several responses to the ad, one of which is below. It has been copied and pasted exactly as it was emailed to her and, I think you'll agree, displays an unrivalled mastery of the English language.

"hi are u single and looking for some fun if not sori just at lose end and looking for someone for some hot action lol"

Stuff to view with your eyeballs

I put together some black and white pics taken in August of last year, set em to some music and uploaded the lot to Le Tube. If you can spare 3m23s of your time click the pic to take a peek!

Photos of India

Hello. I've finally collated all the photos from our trip round India and Nepal. Can you believe it only costs just over £1 to have a 36exp film processed in India or Nepal! It beats paying £5.99 at Boots in the UK! With this in mind I shot loads of films and got the lot processed before we came back. Here are a few of my favourites.

Many of these are up on Photobucket which you can view by clicking any of these pictures.

Street kids in Ahmedebad

One of the final few photos taken during our 2 month trip round the north of India. This bunch of kids were playing on a bridge in the city of Ahmedebad in Gujarat.

My mum's first response when I showed her was "Oh it's like something from Slumdog Millionaire!" I'm not sure if that's a good or a bad thing!

Anyway I like it and there'll be more India pics and others to follow.

Setting up a blog

Mmmm...... What user name shall I choose? Something catchy? Something meaningful? Something humorous? Something memorable? Nah let's just go with Photospoon....damn someone's taken it already! Right we'll have to settle for Spoonography!

Okay, as I'm not 100% sure what a blog is or should be at this point I'll say that spoonography will initally be a forum to display for the various photos taken with my beloved Minolta x300. I have many photos on photobucket which I will post links to and I am also a member of the Minolta x300 Flickr group
. There are also a few related videos on youtube as well as many unrelated videos some dated from as far back as 1996! Happy days!

I will be posting lots of bits and bobs related to photography, artwork and music over the next weeks and months, or I might actually get a job and forget about blogging altogether in which case spoonography will end up on the scrap heap just like our faithful 1996 Seat Ibiza which got towed away today for the last time :(
But hopefully that won't happen and I'll manage to keep it going.......

In the mean time be sure and check out the Deadbeat Blog: http://deadbeat-inc.blogspot.com/
which has recently been started by a good friend of mine....in fact I'm copying him!
