You are the victim of your own rules

Summer is coming to an end in London, and so we took a train to Camden Town for the afternoon before the cold and miserable days are the best we can expect from this city. I brought my camera for the trip and am happy to report that some new street art works have been put up around the neighbourhood. Here are all the pieces that we were…

Do I feel lucky?

I cannot recall ever visiting a place as covered in graffiti as I encountered while travelling through Athens last week. Barely a single surface in the city has been spared the spray can and while the overwhelming majority of jottings extend to little more than tags, anarchist slogans and profanity, there is without doubt a whole stack talented artists producing street…

Street art gallery – Berlin edition

Herself and I are just back from a four day trip to Berlin and while I will save the details of the excursion (and my thoughts about the city) to another post, I am eager to show you some of the street art that we spotted in this most unusual of European capitals.  It took most of our Saturday…

Back in Camden Town – Street Art Gallery

Camden Town Street Art or: Staying Busy While the Woman is Away. Herself has been in Greece visiting family this week. As a result, I’ve been at somewhat of a loose end back home in London. While it’s only been a few days, in even that short time the flat looks like a hurricane blew through and, in…

To hold the world in the palm of your hand

WordPress tells me that I have now used up the entire 3Gb of storage offered on my plan. This means that if I wish to continue maintaining this site then I’m going to have to make a decision on what to do next. I can either fork out for a premium plan or transfer everything onto a…

Be genuine with questionable haircuts

As my stretch of employment in Camden Town comes to a close, I can’t help but get a little reflective about my time spent here. When I first started working in this famously rowdy district three years ago, it would not be a stretch to say that I was far from keen on the area. However, as I’ve…

Be careful! Got it!

Things move fast in this town and I was made sure of that when I went for a walk before lunch and stumbled across a whole heap of street art pieces that seem to have materialized out of thin air over the weekend. I had to move a few bins and jump a few walls…

The Strays of Corfu

The Strays of Corfu On a recent trip to Corfu, I couldn’t help but note the overwhelming number of stray dogs and cats that know only the streets and alleys of this island as home. Though mostly unthreatening and passive in nature, many of these poor creatures are often diseased, starving, and injured. Strays are…

My Idea of Fun

I was lucky enough to negotiate a day off work last Thursday and since the weather was looking tasty, I grabbed my camera and headed to East London to see what new street art had appeared since my last visit. I took hundreds of photos and have picked the best to present for your convenience…

Alexander the Great and Optic Neuritis

It’s been a very interesting couple weeks and right now I am hauled up in my West London flat, having been excused from work on account of a wicked case of Optic Neuritis that has totally messed up the sight in my right eye. I’m popping enough pills to have made Hunter Thompson take note…

London Street Art Ultra Gallery Pt. 1

As all my blasted luck would have it; while we were holidaying in Greece, I noticed a dull pain developing behind my right eye as well as a slight blur in vision. To cut a long story short, and after a visit to Moorfields Eye Hospital as soon as we got back to Blighty, I am currently…

Time For Action

I was only going to post once today, but I went for a walk on my lunch break and saw some new street art that I haven’t photographed yet. Here’s what I found. You can now follow my adventures on Instagram here.

Just checking in on you

It’s been a fine week for street-art in Camden. I saw these new pieces while out for lunch.  I wish I could write more, but I’m a little up against it this afternoon, so I’ll just leave them here to your own tender mercies. For more street-art and other strange things, you can follow me…

Saint Patrick’s Day Parade London 2016

On Sunday morning, thousands of revelers gathered in Central London to celebrate the annual Saint Patrick’s Day festival and parade. Patrick may be the patron saint of Ireland, but it’s not so well known that the man mythology claims to have driven the snakes from Irish shores was actually born in Britain. In light of…
