The first Nazi concentration camps were hastily erected in Germany in February 1933 immediately after Hitler became Chancellor and his NSDAP was given control over the police through Reich Interior Minister Wilhelm Frick and Prussian Acting Interior Minister Hermann Göring.
Used to hold and torture political opponents and union organizers, the camps held around 45,000 prisoners by 1933 and were greatly expanded after the Reichstag fire of that year.
This is the very same concentration camp my uncle was held in, he was subjected to some awful tests, the effect of which remained with him until the very end.
It shouldn’t come as a surprise that I love a good landscape photo, and so imagine (if at all possible) my delight in seeing this years winning landscape photos…. Not one to keep things to my self I thought it only right that I share them…. so here they are!
I stumbled across this years ago and happened to find it again recently.
Its a short story about a couple who spend 30 days trekking through the Sierra in an attempted to remember what’s important in life.
While it’s a great story, it’s the filming I love, the way the film is edited and the soundtrack. Since watching the film again, I bought the We Are Augustines album called Rise Ye Sunken Ships which is just fantastic – I haven’t stopped listening to it!
I tried to explain to Sash that the McLaren F1 was a bargain when it originally went on sale for £600,000 but fell on deaf ears… well now one has just sold for an eyewatering £3.5million!!! Now that’s an investment!!
Lucky man… I hope he enjoys it as much as I would!
New York City is always bright. Street lights, business marquees, light from apartments and car headlights merge to light every corner of the city streets, even on the darkest nights. It is the night after NYC was decimated by Hurricane Sandy, downtown NYC is in the midst of a power outage that has plunged it into complete darkness. I felt the call to hit the eerily dark streets and show New York as it is rarely seen. Trekking around with my tripod I was able to get the long exposures necessary to see in the dark.

Last November I managed to do some damage to my knee. I went to the doctors and was swiftly told I was suffering from a condition known as Bursitis Knee.
I stumbled across a living social deal whereby I could purchase a consulation at Cotswold Physiotherapy Centre for the bargin price of £17… so I did!
I was greated by the lovley Alison who spent a good 40 minutes telling me to bend this way and then that way. Then she got me to lie on the bed and move this way and then that way!
The up shot of it all? I dont have Bursitis Knee, but I do have some torn cartilage. This makes me a little happy as it means I’m not getting old (my boss toke great delight in telling me his father suffered from Bursitis Knee in his later years!!).
I was given a resistence band and a load of excerises, all designed to get be fighting fit again!
