i ♥ tape hiss - is back!


i ♥ tape hiss


A lot of images are listed as "No Longer Available".
This is due to updating at Flickr of some of the photos which originally appeared on this blog. Since today, 30 August 2015, I've been re-posting a few of them and hope to get through the entire blog sometime in the near future. As I promised last year I'll eventually get round to posting some new posts as well.


Will no longer be updated sometime
in the near future.
I've abandoned Tumblr and will be posting
here soon.

My thanks to all visitors and 
followers of this blog over the past
few years.
