Filipino DIY

I grew up on a farm, and even though I did my best to move away from said dwelling as soon as I could I still lived there for almost twenty years. So I’ve certainly done my fair share of farm-related work, or at least been an unhappy bystander to all things that can (and […]

10 Bar Service!

10 Bar Service!

About six months ago I invested in a Patima housing for my Canon G10 together with an Inon Z-240 strobe, a major step up after my Canon Ixus with on-board flash. I’ve taken a few thousand shots with it now and have actually managed to get one or two decent pictures! The camera itself is […]

iPod Touch vs. new iPhone

iPod Touch vs. new iPhone

Right this moment I’m curled up in some kind of rattan hammock which is hanging in a little hut by the edge of the sea. I am struggling a little bit getting my legs comfortable but it’s a struggle I’m slowly winning so that’s ok. I’m typing this entry, together with all other online activities […]

Order up!

Order up!

After starting to mentally compose the letter of complaint to EMS, the company who was supposed to deliver my parcel containing all of the exciting parts of the new underwater camera setup, and specially send a virtual boot to whoever is in charge of updating the non-functioning web-status, I was getting really impatient. I’ve never […]

Ch-ch-changes…

Ch-ch-changes…

Sadly I don’t really have any changes to talk about… I still haven’t received my underwater housing! I’ve been given a very helpful link with a tracking number that shows the progress of the package, which I’m checking shamefully often. Well, too bad it’s not updating! The last thing that was recorded was the package […]

Underwater camera!?

Underwater camera!?

I recently whinged about my camera not working properly due to me being an idiot and dropping it on the floor. It basically will not focus on anything closer than one meter from the lens. Underwater photography without a proper external flash is pretty much all about macro, up close and personal, and if my […]

Irony and cameras

Right, so it was a few days ago I commented on the fact that I was looking forward to taking more underwater photos, and me trying to become a better photographer. Well, that same evening I dropped my compact camera and now it doesn’t want to focus closer than about a meter away from the […]

Underwater photography

I’d love to be able to call myself a photographer, sadly I don’t think I can claim that prestigious title yet, specially after hanging out with my current housemate Jussi when he’s been taking photos of Kasai and hurrying around talking about ‘soft light’ and similar topics. For Christmas I bought myself an underwater house […]

Cold

Cold

I’ve still got one. It’s very annoying. After my little accident in December I got a pretty bad fever which my friend Louise helped me conquer, not sure I would have survived it without her! I’ve also got a little cough that all people around me keep reminding me is quite annoying. Either way, I’ve […]

I’ve sold my Hornet

I’ve sold my Hornet

I made a promise to myself to take my motorbike license before I turned 30, and I only missed by a few days. I passed my test literally a week after my birthday so I kind of think that was close enough. I never really planned to get a bike, I’ve just always wanted to […]
