I’ve been a naughty blogger. I’ve carried out that one sin which every blogger is guilty of at least once in their digital life…..i haven’t updated my blog.


One reason is that while succesfully purging myself from Facebook I have been basking in liberation from its clutches and enjoying fresh, digital freedom from it.

Now that i’ve temporarily relocated to the city of Hull, in East Yorkshire I’m ready to make a come back.

This time, however, the renaissance will be in a more focused and controlled way, primarily through photography, blogging and the odd Tweet.

The Facebook days of soaking up gossip via the newsfeed page to unconscious time wasting on friend’s photo albums is OVER. I have reclaimed future time that may have been lost to nothingness, whilst at the same, abating a hunger and desire for gossip that is always tempting.

Hessle‘ (where I live) is a quiet suburb, just outside the city of Hull (where I work). A far cry from the megalopolis of London.

You may be wondering why i’ve ended up here. Me, Ronnie, the city boy, the Londoner, someone who has lived in London for over 25 years continuously!

Well, I can tell you one thing, the culture shock wasn’t as great as I thought it would be. People are definitely friendlier and the weather is definitely colder.

On the bright side, it’s sunnier! (pun intended). I think it has something to do with geography and location of the place.

The reason i’m here is that i’m working here as a dentist, fresh out of dental school. More on that later.

Right now, however, I just want to announce the return of the ultimate Baha’i collaborative photoblog…yes, NYLON PARLA is BACK, with a new ‘cast’ of photographers.

Slight changes are abound. A new ‘theme’ is announced every Baha’i month (19 days) and a caption is due which ties it into the name of the Baha’i month.

This month, the theme was ‘Texture’ and the caption was related to this Baha’i month’s name, which is; Knowledge.

A picture says a thousand words, so without further ado, here is the site:
