Welcome to my image gallery. I am quite a keen photographer and I am particularly fond of digital cameras. I also rather like putting very old lenses on very new cameras. These galleries have been assembled over the last twenty years or so, on a variety of different cameras. There are also assorted screengrabs and wallpapers that are/will provide graphical content for various articles and journal entries. But if you just like looking at pictures, then this is the place for you…

The shattaf. I fitted these things in both our toilets - there wasn't enough room to proper bidets... They have the rather apt name "shattaf". They are not expensive (about twenty-five quid each, all-in, including a decent-quality high-pressure hose, metal isolation valve and wall bracket) and they are relatively easy to fit. These particular handsets are solid stainless steel and seem pretty robust I first saw them when I was in Hong Kong, some years ago. I'm told they are particularly popular with Muslim women. But they work just as well for atheist/agnostic men too! ;-) At the risk of being crude, "washing it off" is much healthier than just "wiping it off". That said, we're not completely out of the proverbial woods insofar as toilet paper is concerned. Despite having quite a small bottom, my wife still somehow manages to use an inordinate amount of bogroll. ;-)

Editor’s note: this gallery system is based on NextGen gallery. It is envisaged that ultimately it will supersede our old Coppermine-based media library, certainly for management of images. There will inevitably be some duplication. Coppermine was installed back in 2006, when 640 x 480 pixels was considered a “large image” for the internet. The old Coppermine gallery is still available, though we are not accepting any third party users any more.
