I’ve just watched the film Argo. When I first heard of the story, I wanted to see the film, due to its slight connection to genre, and one of my favourite books, Zelazny’s Lord Of Light. I knew the book wasn’t even mentioned in the film, but it amused me anyway.

Then I heard about the various criticisms of the film, how the film greatly distorted the story, while saying it was “based on a true story”. But I still wanted to see the film, so I put off reading too deeply into it, until I had seen the movie.

I’ve been trying to do some stuff with photography and video. The former being mainly attempts at food photography, the latter some basic music videos for YouTube.

The photography thing is a long-term thing – I haven’t done much serious photography, and food photography is a particularly challenging area. I have a learning curve to navigate, but I am enjoying myself.
