Today I got a new Marco lens -- 100mm f/2.8. It's super sharp and yummy, although I think this was a little too close for it.

I like my Holga. I like that I have no clue what I'm doing with it. I like that the results are so unpredicable. I like that it generally looks okay. I hate hate hate that it takes so long to process....

[Also a final test from Flickr Blogging, this time a square one.]

One of the many corridors in the Lanes area of Brighton.

Delirium, originally uploaded by REALJimBob.

Went to see Delirium at the O2 at the weekend. Sadly I found it quite disappointing. Having seen Circque du Soleil's "O" in Las Vegas which I found amazing, this was significantly less on a number of fronts.

The change in format from O's water based acrobatics to Delirium's more musical performance didn't really work for me -- after all, I'm there to see acrobatics, dammit. The venue, the O2, wasn't ideal either. The two side screens for the projections covered up a lot of the performance, and the continual practice of pulling that curtain across the stage every five minutes just confused the already overly surreal 'plot'. I say plot, even after the explanations on Nik's blog I'm still totally stumpted.
