This is a ~6 month solargraph using a Solarcan. This was mounted to a drainpipe on our house on Jan 1st 2022 and left for about 6 months to capture the path of the sun over that time. The solarcan is a pinhole camera with a sheet of photographic film inside designed to capture extremely long exposures.

Every year, the insurance company adds ~£100 to the car insurance, then we ring them and they immediately remove it.

“There was a time when academia was society’s refuge for the eccentric, brilliant, and impractical. No longer. It is now the domain of professional self-marketers. As for the eccentric, brilliant, and impractical: it would seem society now has no place for them at all.”
