My name is John Davies and, as the title of this blog suggests, I’m a recently retired engineer who’s finally got some time on his hands. My engineering career varied from embedded hardware and software development ( including some safety critical work ) to management of commercial software projects. After retirement my wife and I moved to live near Llanelli in South Wales and this blog is primarily a vehicle for me to document the slightly random things that interest me. If they interest other people as well then that’s even better 🙂

Things that interest me at the moment are:

  • Photography and related subjects like time lapse movies and photogrammetry
  • Cross country skiing and rollerskiing
  • General techy things, preferably based around Free & Open Source Software ( FOSS )
  • Woodturning
  • Some travel, hopefully about places that are not too far away and not very well known
