Given my increasing interest in photography, and my desire to continue touring the world, promoting my own brand of “internationalisation”, I’ve decided to invest in a shiny new SLR camera! It’s a Nikon D40 SLR, brimming with shinyness, and with much potential for buying hideously expensive lenses in the future if I so decide. Here are a few test shots from todays pool match (more of which below)

The Football Shirt Test

The Turtle Test

The Beatles Test

The Philip Jones Test

The Pool Test

Anyway. The Pool. Today was much like the day Blues lost 7-0 to Liverpool in the FA Cup Quarter Finals- a day best forgot. And so my 9-2 defeat to Phil tonight will thus be recorded here (as will his luck all night, as well as my distraction by other matters), and we will move on.
