butterflies and hurricanes

Me Myself and Eye

In order to make this title make sense, I am currently sipping a Hurricane whilst I upload these pics from the zoo the other day. This is obviously a fib, given that it is 9am on a Thursday, but go with me on this one. Anyway, this particular title is from one of my favourite Muse songs which concerns itself with chaos theory, with specific emphasis on the Butterfly Effect. As far as I am concerned, far too many musicians have overlooked this area of physics when looking for inspiration for a quick ditty.

For those of you who have no idea what I am talking about, here is a link to the song being played live at Wembley in 2007: Butterflies and Hurricanes Live.

I realise it may be a bit too much of a racket for some, but at least hang around for the piano solo at 3:45. It’s so subtly done you have to love it.

Enough blather, here are the pics – see if you can spot the hurricane:

One of the themes of the last few weeks since Natalia made her appearance has been that we have been spending a lot of time indoors. It's good timing really from her standpoint as she can't go out, so she might as well be locked up for the coldest time of the year. I'm pleased she is showing herself to be considerate from such an early age. Anyway. rather than posting a load of pics of us sitting around in our jim-jams watching Dora the Explorer for the Nth time, here are some pictures of our first couple of trips out of the house this past weekend. The temperature got up to the 70s Fahrenheit (that's 20s Celsius for our overseas friends) ...

catching up…
It's been a pretty intense month or so here with a lot of stuff going on between one thing and another. We've moved to North Carolina and been going through that whole process of getting settled in a new home and getting set up with doctors and hospitals and the like with the impending arrival of our baby daughter. As a result, I have a lot of catching up to do on here as I've shot a couple of weddings and senior sessions since the last update back in September. I hope to get caught up over the next few days. One source of consistency for us in this sea of change is Charlotte. She has really done a brilliant job of adapting to the new sur ...

spring at the ima
I went for a walk around the grounds of IMA this morning to scout out for a shoot this weekend. There was no one else around except the groundsmen (and a few robins). The sun shone for about 20 minutes before the clouds drew in. It was great to see the spring flowers out in full force. Finally, looks like the winter is on its way out after what seems like years.
