Simply Sublime – Science Museum

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.

The Natural History Museum

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.

Corporate Headshots

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.

Red vs Green

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.
