I think it’s just about time for another post. Teres Major has been untouched for a little while.
I’ve moved to London.
I’ve not been inspired to post on here.
I’ve not been posting anything anatomical for two years.
I feel like it’s a bit of a dumping ground for random information.
I’m sick of that green eye/glasses and skull.
But, check me out here. Hopefully with a bit more direction, sense and interest.
See you there.
I had recently purchased a Nikon F80 to take with me on my travels. It was cheap, shares lenses with the DSLR, and it’s FILM!
On Friday, I had a bit of a lesson shooting on the streets with Darren and a handful of other friends. It’s such a disciplining experience not having the immediate preview from the DSLR screen as well as having a limited number of shots (and a cost associated to every shot taken). You don’t get to stand there and take 10 shots of the same bench hoping that you’ll be able to fix at least one of them up in Lightroom. It really requires you to step back, think about what you’re shooting, and whether it’s worth one of the 36 shots you’ve got for the day.
I loved it! Let’s hope I can apply some of these practices to use in Europe. Also, 2 weeks till the move to London – whoa.
Here are how some of the shots turned out.

More from Elixir.
Origin: Bufundu, Nyamagabe, Rwanda
Farm: Buf Cafe
Elevation: 1600-1900 meters above sea level
Varietal: Red Bourbon
Process: washed, sun-dried
Buf Cafe, owned by Epiphanie Mukashyaka, a widow from the 1994 genocide, and one of the few female entrepreneurs in the region. She helps over 7000 small farms in her community buy their beans and hires locals far above minimum wage to at her washing stations. The cafe helps to bring electricity and water to the local town and provides jobs, income, and a central focus to thousands of people.
Definitely worth the $15 you pay for a bag of beans.
Bye bye Highgate, bye bye Jade.

Bought this Supreme x Damien Hirst sticker ages ago. It finally has a home.
Starting to think about what I should/can/want to bring with me.
