A window view of the BT Tower, in Fitzrovia, central London. I took this picture on the 28th of August, 2012, on the first day at my new office in Tottenham Court Road, after my company relocated there from our old site in Bressenden Place, Victoria which was scheduled for demolition. The BT Tower, formerly known as the ‘Post Office Tower’, was first built in 1961, with construction completed in 1964. Standing in at 191 metres (627 ft), it was initially devised by the then General Post Office as a means of ferrying telecommunications traffic from London to the rest … Continue reading PHOTO MOMENT: The BT Tower


  “Sometimes, that’s all you need.” A hug is a good way to release feel-good endorphins into the bloodstream. It is also a quick, simple and ‘warm and fuzzy’ way of reinforcing human relationships (and human-other animal ones too). Even for me, though I’m not the most touchy-feely person, a warm and firm hug from a loved one just makes me feel so much better. So go ahead, give someone you care about a hug today. It is free after all. SOURCES: Vijay Shah { विजय }, Twitter, Twitter Inc. #BAE, Twitter, Twitter Inc. IMAGE CREDITS: cute couple things, Tumblr Continue reading PHOTO MOMENT: Long hugs

PHOTO MOMENT: In memory of Princess Diana

  A photo shared by an aunt of mine here in the UK, honouring the late Princess Diana of Wales. Yesterday would have been her 55th birthday. A genuine and warm person, much involved in charity work and so adored by the people of Britain, that she was called the People’s Princess, Diana married Prince Charles of Wales in 1981, and had two sons, Princes William and Harry. Born in 1961 (a year before my mother), Diana was the darling of the Royal Family, widely respected for her humble attitude, heartwarming smile and ability to get on with people from … Continue reading PHOTO MOMENT: In memory of Princess Diana

CHRISTMAS 2015: HEM festive graphic

  This year’s wallpaper is influenced by the humble Christmas tree, with its merry decoration and celebration of creativity and light. The basis for this year’s graphic is a picture from a photo wallpaper site, the Wallpaper Abyss, depicting a row of trees decked out in blue fairy lights. The text used aligns with the photo’s colour scheme very well and keeps the theme running. I prepped the image using an old favourite of ours, piZap. It took only around fifteen minutes yesterday morning and is now officially launched today. It will be used here and on the Half-Eaten Mind Facebook … Continue reading CHRISTMAS 2015: HEM festive graphic
