potato glut sorted. The delicious-looking mini new potatoes have a bitter aftertaste. Well, some of them do. And you can't really have a plate of delicious-looking new potatoes where some of them are a bit rank.

in other news, I finally turned my D50 into a pinhole camera by drilling a hole in a body cap, taping some tinfoil over it and poking it with the acupuncture needle I kept from nalsa's pinhole camera workshop at Photocamp.

Worked astonishingly well - I took one shot at a 30s exposure and it came out reasonably clear. Then the battery died and I had other stuff to do, but I shall tinker with it over the weekend and post the results.
