Weekend In Pictures

I didn't get absolutely everything I wanted to do this weekend done, but
Bridge

On Saturday, I headed over the bridge to the Docks Cottages, open for Bristol's Open Doors Day, to have a nose around.

Convoy

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.

Cat Redux

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.

Line

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.

Bulb I

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.

Royal York Crescent

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.

Tax Return

Thrillingly, I then did my tax return. Yawn. But at least it's done.

Pick

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.

Crew

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...

Can you get me some of whatever you've got?
