On Saturday, I headed over the bridge to the Docks Cottages, open for Bristol's Open Doors Day, to have a nose around.
The cottages had lots of fairly random stuff in them, including this little model convey, which an elderly lady seemed very keen to demonstrate to me. She was a bit odd.
Then I headed to Underfall Yard, one of the local shipbuilding yards. The buildings with the Floating Harbour control machinery were pretty impressive, but I was most impressed with this bloke, who was renting space to build a catamaran in his spare time. He's been there five years so far.
Then a quick jaunt down the harbourside, past this sailing school, to Brunel's Buttery, to have an exceptionally unhealthy lunch.
I got tons of dull stuff done, too, like the laundry and tidying the flat, but I don't think there's much need for pictures there.
On Sunday I spent a little time underground, taking photos in the Clifton Rocks Railway, an old water-weight-driven funicular, and ignoring the doubtless-fascinating talk from the guide, which I'd mostly heard before.
On Saturday I found out I'd won £50 on the Premium Bonds, so I used the money to buy a copy of Photomatix, for HDR (high dynamic range) photography. So, on the way back from the railway, I took a few photos of this postbox on Royal York Crescent, so I could experiment with it. I think it came out pretty well.
On Sunday evening, I watched the aforementioned Julia Roberts film, during which I got bored enough to take this photo of my guitar entirely by the light of the TV.
And a pretty awesome weekend was rounded off by floating past the film crew on Monday morning's journey to work, where I got this picture, which I like a lot.
And that's about it. I didn't get around to the haircut, or recording any drums, or roughing out a site design. But I think I can live with that. I feel pretty damn' recharged and go-getting right now...
