The Ninth Doctor: 'Run! ... And so was I.'Collapse )

I have previously written up my feelings about the season as a whole here and here, though I also strongly recommend Graham Sleight's essay here. The run of stories from Dalek to the end is pretty good by the standards of any era of Who, before or since. And I was able to fit The Parting of the Ways into my commute this morning - it usually takes me an hour and a quarter door to door, with enough of the intervening minutes on the train that I can look at a screen in a stable environment. This will get tricky with the longer specials, but I will cross that bridge when I come to it.

New Year #522013

birdsflying proposed earlier in the week to lead a project of posting a picture a week to Flickr, based around a common theme for each week of 2013. This seemed to me a good reason to reactivate my Flickr account and try to hone my own photography skills. A picture a day, as some dedicated people do, is quite a commitment, but one a week is surely manageable.

Sensibly enough she has proposed "New Year" as this week's theme. I suspected that I might get something appropriate from the newly started Irish presidency of the European Union, and when I peeked into the Justus Lipsius building, where all the EU summits are held, on my way back from lunch, I realised I had timed it just right: they were literally in the act of raising the Irish presidency banner in the atrium.

So the European semester begins, and so too does this project. It is a little askew, and suffers from being taken through bullet-proof glass, but one has to start somewhere.

Eszter Hargittai has eloquently explained why one might want to undertake such a project in the first place, and I have signed up for her Flickr group too. After all, two photos a week is surely manageable. I think.
