The Walk To Work

I’ve spent most of August and September working in Clerkenwell. That has meant a walk from Liverpool Street to Great Sutton Street twice a day. I tried to vary my route as much as possible as there are plenty of ways to get from one to the other. This has given me some great opportunities for picture making in the Barbican, Whitecross Street Market, Bunhill Fields and Old Street.

Here’s a set of some of the best location shots I’ve taken over the past couple of months:

Over At Bletchley Park

Last weekend saw me back at Bletchley Park for the Over The Air 2013 conference. Two days of geekery and general fun. I even gave a short presentation about my FDT project as one of the Ignite Bletchley sessions on Friday evening in the big marquee.

We were also free to enjoy the surroundings of the old mansion on site:

I found another image for my [email protected] project, #37 while wandering around the grounds. Here is a selection of the other images I made during the weekend:

Over The Air 2013 Ignite Bletchley ParkI’ve been enjoying this year’s Over The Air conference held at Bletchley Park, the famous code-breaking site known as Station X during WWII. Foolishly, I submitted a proposal for Friday evening’s Ignite Bletchley talks, and rather more foolishly, the lovely folks at OTA decided to take me up on my offer!

Plenty of the talks in the past have been on technical subjects, but I’ve also seen some humourous ones, so decided my session would be about the silly Face Down Tuesday images which I’ve made over the past 18 months.

If you’re not familiar with the Ignite format, each person gets just 5 minutes to talk on a subject of their choice, accompanied by 20 slides which automagically advance every 15 seconds. So you have to have your wits about you and keep it moving! Alistair kindly videoed my presentation, which you can watch here:

It’s a bit hard to see all the pictures I was talking about, so here they are for you to see properly, with my live audio track over the top:
