Camber Sands

Oldie photo. It was great when I used to take pictures on my light leaky Olympus XA2 because I never knew what would come out. I'm thinking about investing in a Leica M8 Digital but pics like one make me doubt the wisdom of that decision....

Tesco Dawg

On Native American Reservations there are wild, savage and feral dogs roaming free called Rez Dawgs. Over here the equivalent is the Supermarket Dawg which is left in the car as the owner does the weekly shop, guarding the MPV by barking, growling and drooling.

How To Stop An Exploding Man

The Ladsmag gods have summoned me back to Gotham. Elsewhere Heroes starts tonight on BBC2. I suggest you watch it as my old friend Ted Kessler stars as the L.A cop who can hear what people are thinking and my ex also makes an appearance as the blonde dual personality psychopath who hallucinates every time she looks in the mirror .

"You're gonna end up on the boat for this McNulty"

At the moment I feel that I'm on the picture editor/photographer/writers equivalent of the Harbour Patrol.

Far Right Car Boot Sale

Is it me or are car boots and charity shops nothing like as good as they used to be? Perhaps I should return to my old habit of shopping exclusivly at Selfridges

Shortys Gone Digital

My 22 month old niece has got so bored of driving to the lab, dropping film off, waiting for dev and contact and then dealing with the prima donna hand printers at Metro Art that she's gone and got herself a digital camera: She does all her own retouching now too.

Triple A

Spent the day sorting junk I've had stored at gramps' for ages. Don't remember going to that Fugazi gig. Also found tons of promotional CDs. Will I ever listen to Marion, 60 Foot Dolls or Raging Speedhorn ever again?

What are days for?
Days are where we live.
They come, they wake us
Time and time over.
They are to be happy in:
Where can we live but days?
Ah, solving that question
Brings the priest and the doctor
In their long coats
Running over the fields.

Philip Larkin
