About me

Hello! I’m Andy.

I travel quite a lot and often work away from home. When I’m away I like to wander and take photos.

All of the photos on here were taken by me. My current camera/lens combo is an Olympus OM-D E-M5 (mark 1) with the Olympus 12-40mm f2.8 lens. Previously I used the excellent Olympus 12mm f2.0, 25mm f1.8 and 45mm f1.8 lenses but they have since moved on to better things. Some of my older photos were taken with a Canon Powershot SX230 hs, and in amongst it all are photos taken with my mobile (Galaxy S3, Nexus 5, iPhone 7).

This isn’t intended to be a travel blog with lots of funny stories, detailed information and recommendations. This blog is bringing my travels and trips from the past few years alongside photos I took on the way. I also share photos on flickr and Instagram.

The blog name – eight0270one – is from “The Time Machine” by H. G. Wells (802,701 is the year the Time Traveller travels forward to) and I’ve kept it since using it as my flickr a while back.

I don’t go in for country counting or “experiencing it like a local”. I’m a tourist, I do touristy things and take photos like a tourist. Drop me a note or leave a message if you follow me and I’ll happily follow back.
