Learning Something New

Learning Something New

One of my many amazing neighbours dropped a unicycle off to us yesterday. I've never tried to ride a unicycle before, but it's one of those things I've always wanted to learn. So - no time like the present! I'd like to think I'll be able to ride this thing within a...

Wienerbr(ö|ø)d – Attempt #2

I really want to learn how to make a good Danish. Or even a great Danish. I've tried twice so far and while I've ended up with good looking and delicious tasting baked goods, they aren't really Danishes. They're bready and that delicious crackly crispyness. I plan on...

Baguettes

Baguettes

I think an important part about getting tasty baguettes is to shape them correctly, and letting them rest for a long time before gently putting them in the oven. There's a brief video on the initial folding below. For this recipe, I aim for 72% hydration. Use 720 ml...

A photograph – mine.

https://www.flickr.com/photos/karloskar/48392949746 While we were away on our mini-breakette we took many walks along the beach. It was windy, and gorgeous. This is from Normanville. Shot with Olympus OM-1 with a red filter (25A), on Ilford FP4+ 125, developed in...

New Category – Maths

Because...why not? Last weekend we had a little getaway to Sellicks Beach, and at sunset I decided to head up to the Nan Hai Pu Tuo Temple and see if I could catch a nice sunset photo. I didn't love the locations I could get to easily (there are too many trees in the...

Wonderful Waterfalls

Wonderful Waterfalls

South Australia's main body of fresh (yet murky, and sometimes gross) water is the Murray River. The Murray starts in the Australian Alps, and heads towards the South Australian border. Along the way it meets its main tributary, the Darling River. Then it gets to...

A movement!

A movement!

That might be a bit dramatic. It's definitely an exaggeration. But look! It looks like I'm about to get one back! I've created a map of all the destinations that I've sent #tardigram postcards to. Looks like I might have to create one for where I've got them from,...

Mindfulness. Maybe.

Mindfulness. Maybe.

I tweeted this nearly a year ago: It's 10:43. I'm in Adelaide, sitting in my office. I can hear muffled traffic noise, Dawn of Midi playing on Spotify, my keyboard, and my colleagues keyboard. It's cloudy, and there's moisture on the ground. But all in all, days are...

Project #tardigram

I had a feeling it would be fun. I had a feeling it would fit right in with my current attempts at slowing down. So far I have printed 14 postcards. I've sent three cards overseas: One has gone to Anchorage, Alaska in the USA, one to a village near Nagano in Japan,...

Old(ish) Photography Gear

Roooooxanne... In passing, I mentioned to my Father in Law that I was hunting on Gumtree for an enlarger and other darkroom paraphernalia. Turns out that he has (or had, now!) a box of such paraphernalia in the garage, and would be happy to get rid of it. Expiry: 1981...

Project “Opposite-of-Instagram”

Project Tardigram I don't often have projects. I always have plans for projects, but rarely do I actually get around to starting those projects. I was a bit worried that this "Opposite-of-Instagram" was going to be the same non-starter. But here we are. I just...

Repairing Stuff

I like new stuff. I think most people do. But I also adore old stuff. Stuff that maybe doesn't work as well as it should, but has the potential to be great again. Archaeological Find Our farm sold recently, which meant that the stuff I had stored there had to...
