I’ve finally finished uploading my photos to my new SmugMug gallery. It has just about every photo I’ve taken over the past eight years, so have a browse!

Last Wednesday we had lunch at 30 St Mary Axe, otherwise known as the Gherkin. Designed by Foster and Partners, it is the second tallest building in the City and one of my favourite London buildings. For years I’ve been meaning to see inside on one of the London Open House days so I was

Old Computers

This site has some beautiful images of old computers including an amazing picture of a Cray CDC 6600 that seems to have huge glowing green eyes. This was the world’s fastest computer from 1964 to 1969 and looks like something from the set of Blake’s 7. They also have a picture of the Neiman Marcus
