Two Wheel Terror

Yes that’s right, watch out the mean streets of Dalston, I have joined the ever swelling ranks of two wheelers on the roads of London. I just bought myself a beautiful retro Raleigh bike from the lovely people @lock7cyclecafe on the canal bridge by broadway market. He or she can’t quite decide on the gender of my new two wheeled friend, is a dark Indian Red according to Colford.com, with new cream tyres. I will be trying very hard not to be a fair weather cyclist, but the newly fitted basket can’t carry all of my interior photographer kit,as anyone of my clients will tell you I tend to have quite a bit of stuff with me on shoot days, so please don’t expect to see me turning up for my next interior or fashion lifestyle shoot on him/her. Once the gender has been decided an official christening will be held, if you’d like to get acquainted, with the bike that is, let’s meet for coffee to chat about making pictures. Suggestions on the gender gratefully received …………

Spring Blossom

well there isn’t any doubt that trees laden with pretty blossom makes one feel better, it’s one of many signs that the cold months will soon be behind us once more, the same is certainly true for me walking to and from the studio where I am currently shooting a massive interior photography project for a big UK retailer, we are at the beginning of week three of a five week schedule. yesterday on my way home I saw a couple walking along in front of me, he was pretty tall and she was fairly small, nothing strange so far I hear you say, but as they stopped to admire the flowers above he reached up and bent down a low bough to pick some of the pretty blooms for her, romance is alive and well in the streets of london, hope your enjoying the signs of spring on your travels too ………….

Following on from my musings in an earlier post Street Art, while out and about the other day, on my way to a meeting about a huge retail project I am currently working on, (hush hush, more on that later) I saw this absolute whooper, no not the BK type, this really beautiful piece of art just off Curtain Road in E1, the sheer size of it was of course what grabs your attention, but then it’s the amazing use of colour, now I didn’t see the day coming when redish pinky hues would be getting me excited, but there you go. The technique involved is really amazing, the swirly lines used to make up the graphic are so regularly irregular, could be a common style, but not one I’ve seen before but then I’m by no means an expert when it comes to an aerosol full of coloured liquid, don’t you just love the surprises London can offer on a wintery day………..

new gloves added to my project page In Memory of, we saw these desperate  lost souls on a walk inepping forest, they are pair but, not a pair if you know where I am going with this thought process, maybe they where belonging to a couple out walking holding hands without their respective gloves on, one appears to be a mans glove and the other could be a womans, hopefully as the walked home they managed to keep each others hands warm until a replacement could be found. Or not it could all be a chance meeting under the trees, for the gloves that is ………… it’s just that I am romantic at heart so a happy ending is always the preferred option for me, more soon,
