We had a talk from Martin Parr today, he's a funny man. He told us so much but what i remember most is how he isn't someone who just carries a camera around waiting for a photo opportunity, he goes out on very specific missions to collect hundreds of photos of themes and people he is genuinely fascinated by.

The other day we snuck into the ceremonious opening of a jar buried beneath a plinth since 1952. The time capsule was left by people at the university for people of the future. Within the capsule was a list of staff, two paper clips, a compass and a drawing pin. I think they had unwittingly thought we probably wouldn't be using these tools anymore, and I like the way such tiny objects have kept the University organised and running smoothly for sixty years and more to come.
