The Offbeat Photo Gallery

All photos were taken by us unless stated otherwise. More photos can be found at our Offbeat Facebook Group.

Important Note: fotopic.net, the site where I previously stored the Offbeat and Synthetic photo sets, has gone into liquidation. I am currently rebuilding the photo gallery in Flickr - aim is to complete this by January 2014, but at the moment many of the links to fotopic-held galleries here will not work.
