Another Great Gig at HaverHub

OK, I’m biased here, I love HaverHub: the inclusive community space in the centre of Haverfordwest. And, yes, I’m a director. Last night there was a wonderful event with the fantastic Tankus the Henge, La Loba and Gabe is a Unit.

An ND Filter at the Beach

It’s been a sunny day in Pembrokeshire and we decided to go to the beach this afternoon. I took my camera with me and also shoved a 10-stop neutral density (ND) filter into my back pocket as I left. I just had the small, mirrorless camera with me but that was enough … I should have packed a tripod but decided to place the camera on rocks and just hope.
