After visiting the Natural History Museum, a few of us headed over to the neighbouring Science Museum to checkout the recently-updated LaunchPad exhibit. One of the displays demonstrated the phenomenon of sublimation (see the Wikipedia article on sublimation for a more detailed background). The simple set-up allowed small pellets of solid carbon dioxide (dry ice) to come into contact with water, whereby the carbon dioxied will sublime directly from solid to gaseous form, without becoming a liquid. The jets of gas spewing from the pellets caused them to skid around the surface of the water, creating mesmerising patterns.
I visited the Natural History Museum in London today, for a friend’s birthday outing, and took a few interesting photos of the exhibits and the building itself.

My headshot session last week at Arts Ed drama school in London proved popular, so I had another 5 students lined up for photoshoot sessions, thanks again to Hayley. Here are three of the best headshots from the afternoon.
One of my larger clients, Adder technology, employed my photographic services, in addition to my web design services, to take corporate headshots of the management team. Each CxO posed for a formal portrait, and a relaxed photo sitting at a table.
Hayley, one of the Cambridge students I’d photographed a few times, is doing a Masters at Arts Ed drama school in London. She recommended my headshot photography to her class, and arranged for me to take 5 students’ headshots on Saturday afternoon.
The back of the New Court building in St. John’s is covered in vines. From spring to summer, they’re a verdant green, and towards autumn, they turn red before falling. I managed to get photographs of the leaves when green, and then again when red (a week before they fell), and noticed that I had photos of the same windows before and after the colours changed.
Hayley graduated last year, and is now in Drama School in London. She came back up to Cambridge for the weekend, and asked me to take some updated headshot photos to help her sign with an agent.
This time I was reminded of Claudia Schiffer…
