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

A Ten Point Manifesto for London’s Trendiest New High-End Eatery Our manifesto embodies our commitment to lead the dining revolution by exposing the public to alternative avenues of perception and to question the very foundations of the dining experience. This establishment has absolutely no intention of serving food that fulfils arbitrary criteria such as visual…

Press to reset the world

It’s been quite a few weeks since I published anything, so please accept my apologies. We were in East London at the weekend and had time to photograph the new street art on display for your pleasure. Just a short post today as I’ve been having trouble typing recently. Hopefully the pictures will speak for themselves….

When Eddie Van Halen met Allan Holdsworth

Allan Holdsworth: 1946-2017 Since I have been somewhat under the radar over the last few days, I am a little behind on the news. Sadly, I discovered this morning that one of my all time favourite guitar players, Allan Holdsworth, passed away over the weekend. You will not find an obituary for Allan in any of the popular newspapers, and I…

The Greatest One Man Band in the World

It’s been a miserable few weeks of rain and wind in London this last month, but herself and I have no plans to let any of that get in the way of us enjoying the city. On Sunday we went to Brick Lane in the East End and in addition to taking a stack of photos…

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…

How are ya getting’ on?

A lot has been going on since my lachrymose little article from last week. At the time, I was rather on the despondent side, fearing I would no longer have time or opportunity to hunt-down and photograph London’s ever-changing street art offerings. As it happens,  my sorrows were somewhat unfounded as I started a new job in East London’s Shoreditch area…

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…

It’s not politicians who will end oppression

Herself actually found this piece a few months ago, after I took a photo I knew I’d post it up here, but – for whatever reason – I hesitated until now. I’m not really sure why, I’m a huge Bowie fan (which I inherited from my parents) and am always willing to at least consider radical…

Destroy

I will be leaving my job in Camden in a few weeks, and, as a result,  I see significantly less street art featuring on this site in future – a great shame. Until then, I’m trying to photograph as much new work as possible. We’re experiencing somewhat of a “heatwave” in London at the moment…

Everything is awesome

Strange though it may seem, the only thing I enjoy more than going on some wild and drunken travel adventure is the returning home. No matter how brief the journey, I get a real kick out of seeing what’s changed in my absence and I’m certain that this partiality can be traced back to my…

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…

Things not seen everyday

It looks like I have now arrived at the point at which it is impossible to go for a even short stroll through Camden Town without finding at least a few new street art piece worthy of capture. I see new works everywhere, and this afternoon was no different. A particular highlight to the afternoon…

Tributes to George Martin at Abbey Road

This week the world mourned the loss of Sir George Martin, the legendary record producer and composer affectionately dubbed “the “Fifth Beatle”. I visited Abbey Road Studios on Saturday to see if there would be much of a turnout of fans following the news of Martin’s passing. Along with flowers and cards, hundreds of  well-wishers…
