I’ve been nominated for an award Through some strange fluke, I have been nominated for and made it into the second round of the UK Blog Awards. Know that I don’t run this site for the awards, which is just as well as I’ve never won any. Thinking about it now, I don’t think I’ve…

Street art on Brick Lane in Shoreditch, London

What is the purpose of street art? I found myself meditating on this question while sat on the train to Shoreditch (the capital of London’s street art scene) with Herself this Saturday. Over the last several years, I have photographed thousands of works of street art around the UK and abroad. I’ve stumbled across and…

When I first stepped off the tube for a job interview in Camden Town over a half a decade ago,  it’d be fair to say that I was less than immediately enamoured to the place . “A vastly unattractive part of London,” I called it. A grubby corner of North London, overcrowded with “punk/goth poseurs…

We were tired

We were tired and fattened and half drunk from dinner, but the early evening was warm and calm. Before the train back to London, we walked down along the shore to catch the last light that Whitstable Bay could spare. It was beautiful. We could have spent the night sleeping right there on the sand, but she’d already paid for the return tickets.

I can’t escape the feeling that I spend a disproportionate amount of my time on this posting platform in apology for not  posting enough. I fear that this might be another such occasion. However, I am not without my reasons/excuses. In the last 3 months I have changed jobs (yet again), moved to a new…

An itemized list of my impressions of Los Angeles There’s very little I can tell you about Los Angeles  that hasn’t been already been said countless times before. There is no new revelation to be found in repeated tales of shattered dreams and careless degeneracy in the Hollywood Hills. You know all about that stuff already, everybody knows it….

Take Courage

It’s been almost intolerably warm in the capital these last few weeks. To be honest, I’ve been struggling. It’s rare that I don’t get a funny look when I confess to my distaste for hot weather, but it’s the truth. A sun worshipper,  I am most definitely not. In fact, I was never happier than…

It’s been a busy couple of months and I really haven’t had the time to so much as consider a post for quite some time. I have a free 10 minute window before I have to go off and do something else, so I thought I would share some of the street art I saw…

A Ten Point Manifesto for Manhattan’s Trendiest New High-End Eatery

A Ten Point Manifesto for Manhattan’s Trendiest New High-End Eatery The philosophy guiding our establishment is the realization of a commitment to lead a dining revolution by exposing the public to alternative avenues of perception and challenging the very foundations of what constitutes a ‘meal’. This establishment has absolutely no intention of serving food that…

Hangin’ with the fishes.

I’m told that the collective noun for Koi is a Koromo, but I’m not exactly sure if that’s the truth – or even if these fish were definitely Koi.

A more complimentary picture of Cannes

I feel like I owe Cannes an apology for not enjoying the place as much as I could have on account of the terrible week of weather she threw at me. Truth be told, despite the torrents of wind and rain, it really was a most intoxicating and luxurious place to visit. I even managed…

Words to hear your first time in Cannes

“I’ve been coming to Cannes for 16 years and this is the worst weather I’ve ever seen here.” I’m not sure why it had to rain so appallingly for my first visit to Cannes. If I was the suspicious kind, a paranoid Alex Jones or David Ike type, I would almost put it down to some elaborate…
