A year into baking sourdough bread on a regular schedule, they’re still getting baked. We’re into a routine now, and the kids miss it if the bake takes a break for a week. So every week we’re baking 3 x loaves. One gets eaten on the day, the other two get sliced and put into the freezer and then eaten during the week. That way, we’ve always got fresh bread on the go, plus when you get into this routine, it’s so easy to keep making as it isn’t difficult. You just need to be organised and have some time.
Filmed on an afternoon’s cycle home after a day in the office. The aim of the video is to show how easy it is to cycle now around Cardiff. In the last 12 months the Council have put in pop up cycle lanes and now recently, these have been converted into permanent segregated lanes in a number of streets around the city. The council are pushing through five main cycleways, more on this in another post, and though some are not yet fully connected, it’s only going to be a matter of time before they are and offer a safe space to cycle in.Continue Reading
Propped up on its stand, an old timer bicycle waits for its owner in a cobbled side street in Mantova, Italy. Just a short drive from Verona, the home of the lovers, Romeo and Juliet. There’s history on the corner of every street in Italy. If the motorbike wasn’t in the picture, then it would be much harder to date the picture, but I took it just a couple of years ago on a Fuji X-Pro1, which was a pretty good camera for taking street photographs. This camera hardly made a sound when you take a picture, just the slightest noise.
Taken on a visit to a supplier in a nearby town, and this was from a walk about in the afternoon to chill out before flying home the next day.

It’s a Hill. Get Over It. Inspirational advertising from Nike, to help us get out and into our running shoes. The last month has been poor, I’ve hardly run at all…a combination of ice, snow and generally cold, wet weather has meant that when I was free to run, the weather was against me. Hoping for better times in February, and whether or not there is a hill in the way, won’t matter…it will just be great to be running again and feeling fit.
It’s just something you have to get over, whether it’s a wall, a hill, or a tough part of the run, it’s time to buckle down and get to the end of your run, no matter what.
Photographed on the lobby of the apartments that form part of the El Corte Ingles complex on Av. António Augusto de Aguiar in Lisbon. A modernist design with huge plate glass windows looking out to a decorative small lake. When I took this picture, I always intended it to be in black and white, making the most of the clean symmetrical lines.
