Free range eggs

I know (and have been told repeatedly) that I have a very strange sense of humor, one being finding dumb text or descriptions very funny. Even funnier is…

Halloween one-trick-pony

Being bald, there is only one sure-fire and simple ‘costume’ for me to use. Every. Year.

Here are some plans and photos from one of my earlier reef setups, where I knocked a hole between two rooms and put a 1000ltr. aquarium in. A…

Wild Norway

Almost every night a small herd of deer visits our garden, and I wanted to capture it. So I made a small enclosed video camera setup out of…

The Tarp
