1 May 2012: Hemsby: happy Vikings, lonely Romans and one scary ole sausage

So, Hemsby then. Small village on the Norfolk seaside, too far north for the bright lights of Great Yarmouth, too far south for the wilder, quieter, less commercial, interesting bits of coast. I’d begged a long weekend in my parents’ caravan, just me and my laptop and my plans for a novel (oh – and a box of college marking, but let’s not mention that).

18 Jun 2011: Rainbow over Hitchin

Yeah, yeah, it’s not the most intellectually challenging or politically charge thing I’ve ever posted here but what the heck – I like rainbows, OK? And when one appears over the back garden it’s impossible to resist running outside with a camera.

12 Jun 2011: Worst job ever?

I saw this gloomy fellow by the side of the road in Stevenage a week or so back as I was driving home from work.

11 Jun 2011: Hunny and Cromer: I do like to be beside the seaside

For reasons that make a long story (novel-length, with any luck) I wanted to visit a seaside resort out of season to remind myself of the atmosphere. So, back in March, we loaded up our metaphorical bucket and spade and headed off to the seaside.

14 May 2011: One January night in Walsworth

I’ve been having a rummage through my old photo directories, looking for sets I meant to post but never got around to. Here’s one from January 7th this year, of a sunset in Walsworth.

21 Mar 2011: Hacked By Sxtz

So I was in Baldock today, taking the car in for its MOT, and was left with more than an hour to kill pottering around town and seeing what there is to see.

8 Dec 2010: As cold as a very cold thing

Several days of sub-zero temperatures left Hitchin frosted over – no snow on the ground, but a white coating on plants, trees and derelict cobwebs that picked them out as if spray-canned.

11 Nov 2010: It’s only cold when you’re losing

Last night our local football team, Hitchin Town FC of the Zamaretto League division one central, knocked their entry prices down to a fiver and we decided to go along and watch the game.

21 Dec 2007: Give me 12 inches (and make me a wig)

The fear of going bald does strange things to a man – just ask Mark Oaten. Thing is, there’s no turning back from it.
