I had bit of a backlog of photos I took of a variety of places mostly around Dartmoor, which are now uploaded.

Dartmoor Photos

23rd March, 2010

Moorland walks seem to inevitably result in camera shots where I take a few across a landscape and think “Yeh, I’ll merge these together when I get home” and quite often I eventually do. Here are a couple of the latest:

Quarry Pool (Dartmoor)

See all the older shots I’ve taken in the past in this group of Dartmoor shots.

Out of interest there are a lot of new websites appearing that make use of flickr’s APIs to display information but here is one that has been around for a while and seems to provide quite a few hits: http://fiveprime.org/hivemind/User/srjm. It also helps to remind me of old things.

Bee Photography

27th August, 2009

While out the other day I managed to take a few shots of a variety of summery, garden-y things including spending time trying to get closeups of bees. Here are a couple of the results:

Had an opportunity to put my camera to use again, this time taking some photos of a newly hatched dove up in the dovecote.

Banksia Nuts

28th April, 2009

Before I actually do anything with them, I have taken a few shots of them ‘as is’ after receiving them from axminster. One thing to be noted is that they are actually quite large, so to avoid wasting this intriguing raw material I will probably rethink the size and shape of my joystick handle design.

Banksia Nut Wood

25th April, 2009

So here is the wood I have nearly finally decided to make my actual physical interface from. Aside from the massively intriguing aesthetic nature of the wood, I feel that it draws attention to the physicality of the interface and fits in with a plan to emphasise the human-computer connection by allowing me to create a piece that emanates light from its core when interacted with. Essentially the holes could be illuminated from the inside and glow to indicate the level of connection between the user and the computer.

A Couple More Dartmoor Merges

24th April, 2009

For the past couple of Sundays I’ve decided I have enough time to go walking on the moor, which naturally has meant I’ve returned with some photos to merge into panoramic views.

Easter sunday around the scout hut SW of Burrator:

And the following Sunday, up around Merrivale and Woodtown:
