I like to take photos of things. Mostly peoples. Mostly pretty peoples, if I'm honest. But sometimes toys, or dogs, or maybe a tree. Y'know, interesting stuff.
I shoot a few burlesque shows, but that's just to kill time between photoshoots with models, where I can control the light and the pose and the magic.
My photos will have the tag "my photo". Otherwise, it's stolen from the vast wilderness that is the internet. I usually source pics from Model Mayhem, Flickr or We <3 it.
You wanna look me up elsewhere?
Maybe “indignant” isn’t the right word….
uppity, precious, pretentious, opinionated…
You get what I’m trying to say. It’s been a long day and my brain is turning itself off.
there isn’t a single argument that can be raised that couldn’t also be leveled at someone who calls their dog or cat their best friend.
And a toddler can do a damn sight more than a dog or cat.

You may or may not know, but in the coming weeks, many Internet Service Providers are rolling out the Governments plan for censoring “unwanted” websites. AKA the Porn Filter.
This filter is somewhat similar to the Great Firewall of China, in that the Government has decided what the people can and cannot view while online.
Because it’s not just porn that they are blocking. The headings of what they intend to block are VERY vague:
I mean, who exactly decides what stance is radical? Does that mean any opinion or view that the current government doesn’t agree with? These topics are very open to interpretation to the point that it’s fairly all encompassing.
What can be done about it?
In some cases, you simply need to phone your ISP and tell them you are an adult and you want free access to your pornography. Different ISPs will have different levels of hoops that you may need to jump through.
Failing that, I would like to introduce you fine fellows to Immunicity.
Basically, they are the simplest method of bypassing the blocks.
Check out https://immunicity.org/getstarted for a guide to setting up your browser to do the thing. It’s easy to do.
They will also allow you to access the currently blocked torrent sites, like Piratebay.
Option 3 is to jump to an ISP who are not involved in the censorship scheme.
Andrews & Arnolds seem to be the current darling for this:
Active choice is not a choice
The government wants us to offer filtering as an option, so we offer an active choice when you sign up, you choose one of two options:-
- Unfiltered Internet access - no filtering of any content within the A&A network - you are responsible for any filtering in your own network, or
- Censored Internet access - restricted access to unpublished government mandated filter list (plus Daily Mail web site) - but still cannot guarantee kids don’t access porn.
If you choose censored you are advised: Sorry, for a censored internet you will have to pick a different ISP or move to North Korea. Our services are all unfiltered.
Is that a good enough active choice for you Mr Cameron?
This porn filter isn’t fully active yet. Chances are, you’re not seeing any difference in your browsing right now, but I’m wanting to put this information out there just now because based on their vague blockable topics, Tumblr seems like an ideal candidate to block.
Hopefully, you don’t need this information. But take a note of the Immunicity name, so that if in a few weeks you suddenly can’t access the sites you love, you aren’t totally blocked from finding out how to circumvent it.
( Despite being the beautiful, talented, excellent man that I am, I’m not actually Tumblr Famous…so…this post night not actually be seen by that many people. But if you see this, and you’ve read this far a) well done, and b) I do’t mind if you pass off Immunicity as your own idea, should the porn filter come up in conversation with your real world friends. Just….spread the world. Better to have it and not need it, than need it and not have it, eh? )
For those poor unfortunate souls who don’t have me on Facebook ( and thus can’t see all the wedding photos ) here’s another wee handful for you!

I’ve just noticed that you’re on you tip toes in the bottom one aha! These turned out so amazing!
Ahahahaha. Yeah. I’m a shorty. Even on my tippiest of tippy toes, I’m still a good foot shorter than you!
In my work, I subconsciously stand on my tip toes behind the shop counter. I only ever notice I’m doing it when someone moves behind/parallel to the counter ( we have stuff that people can buy up past the counter ) and when people walk over, I suddenly feel very silly, because I feel like I’ve been caught pretending to be tall!
I don’t know if anyone has ever noticed, because I get all embarrassed and look away or run away hahahaha

AAHH oh my god you and Sophie have matching shoes? That’s adorable

Oh my god the matching Converse!!!
We all had matching shoes. Soph and I had matching Converse and Katie had Westwood’s that were the same colour:
My Converse were custom made…
I got to choose the stitching colour, body colour, fucking everything….and I even got them embroidered with the wedding date:
And they are manky because they are my everyday shoes right now. Rather than spend all that money on them and only wear them once, I’m getting actual use out of them.
I’ll get a replacement pair in a few weeks, so that I don’t totally destroy them…I’m pretty hard on shoes and they are often worn down to their nubs by the time I buy a new pair ahhaa.
The Converse were of course a minor nod to David Tennant’s Doctor Who. I mean, we didn’t want to go all theme-y with the wedding, but we did want little glimpses into us letting our geek flag fly.
Thanks you very much!
It’s been a good few weeks/months since the wedding and we’ve only just gotten to see them for the first time….it’s weird, I’m normally the one taking photos and get to see them immediately….
But I digress. Thank you.
Our photographer was a friend so she did the photos as a wedding gift to us! Which is just ace! Because wedding photographers are fucking expensive

Okay i mean this in the least creepy way possible but I think I saw yous. I recall a wee lassie with those snazzy earmuffs :P If you saw a moron in a bowler hat that was me.
Ahaha, I assume you live in Ayr, btw. Like, if you live in Azerbaijan or where-ever, then chances are we weren’t in the same town tonight lol
But really, there were a lot of people…I’ll be honest and say I didn’t notice anyone with a bowler. But if you ever see me walking the streets ( which I do often! ) feel free to come over and be all “I KNOW YOU FROM THE INTERNET! YOUR FREQUENT SELF NUDE POSTS ARE UNNECESSARY AND DISTURBING!”

For those who don’t know my face, I’m the one with the glasses and the beard, usually standing next to the chick in the wedding dress.
