Whoa, it’s been ages since I last updated this site so I better try and get back to doing it more regular.
I am trying to learn to be a better photographer so took a trip up to Mountain Ash Hospital. It’s old, abandoned and the vandals have been in there doing their thing. It’s quiet and out of the way and I am always interested by old buildings and what you find inside them so its the perfect spot to spend a few hours to get some photos.
When I was in one of the rooms I heard a noise, but thought nothing of it. Old buildings tend to make alot of noises which you have to try and get your mind not to listen toobecause it will start thinking it’s a crazy person roaming around with a knife and the taste for blood. OK maybe I watch too many horror movies.
I heard the noise again, but closer and I froze, getting ready for the whole fight or flight situation. Then a figure emerged from a doorway. Oh shit! Phew it was just some other photographers and I think I scared them as much as myself. We had a bit of a chat and they told me about there being a morgue around the corner. My battery ran out and I didnt have a spare so didn’t have a chance to check that out.
Below are some photos I took, the full gallery is on flickr.
The crows foot socket is a good tool to have if you’ve grown attached to the skin on your knuckles because it’s kind of hard to get at the bolt holding the distributor tight and pulling the throttle open with a shoelace to keep revs at about 2000-2500 is my finest piece of caveman engineering.
Now that the timing is set properly it feels so much smoother and responsive.

A year or 2 back there was a trailer for a crazy 80’s influenced kung fu movie circulating social media. They were trying to get crowd funding to get the full movie released. They got some money and the full version was released on youtube the other day. It’s only 30 minutes long but it’s well worth a watch.
The simplest ideas are always the best …and cheapest. I needed to lock the flywheel in place to undo the bolts and this was the best option I could come up with. It worked really well.
I found this Tortoiseshell Butterfly struggling in a puddle so I helped it out, then it let me take some photos before flying off.
