Ever feel like a robot? If I was one I'd love to be as cute as this one - it belongs to my son, but I'm constantly commandeering it to photograph because I love it so much. My only hang up is that it's eyes aren't very expressive, so I cut I some new ones from sticky paper for this shot. It's yet another photo that I plan to make part of a set - I seem to start lots of these sets and finish very few of them, perhaps I'll make it with this idea.
On the work front, I have been asked to run two 1 day pinhole workshops for A level photography students. I did one of them last year and it was great fun. We turned a room into a camera obscura and then made pinhole cameras and developed the results in a tiny art stock cupboard. Hope fully this year will be as productive and enlightening for students whose main experience of photography has been digital. I certainly learned lots from it.


  1. I must admit to sometimes feeling like Marvin the Paranoid Android ... but nothing as nifty as this fine-looking chap. Good luck with setting the youth of today straight!

  2. Oh, yeah---I felt like this guy a bit this week. Congrats on the class. Have fun!!!
