Taking it back to basics...

Cold mornings waiting for the bus in South London

Here's some pics I took with my old Pentax ME Super-on Fuji film 200. Had them developed in a high street developer and put onto CD-naturally the quality from the scans is pretty dire. Whereas the slides aren't too bad-so really should scan them myself, only problem there is my lack of scanner...

You can now comment on my pictures-I've finally worked out what I was doing wrong which wasn't allowing people to comment! But now the settings are changed you can leave as much abuse or praise as you wish!
Had a very busy weekend, had talks with the British Council about a possible commission and had PR shoots in London, and a shoot in Brighton. Hopefully I'll be uploading some of the results from that over the next few days.
all the best

Free Speech...just not in this particular spot.

I headed down to Parliament Square the other day in order to see if their were any interesting protests taking place (as their usually are at the weekends). Unfortunately because of the weather most demonstrators had probably decided to stay at home with a cup of tea. Still I did find this interesting character; Mr Paul Pawlowski, a 77 year old Polish 'socialist' who had some rather interesting, lets say, theories on the way the world should be run. This particular placard was a conspiracy theory blaming Israel for 9/11, and it ended up with him getting into a heated argument with a Jewish couple in the underground (see top photo).
Due to new laws protesting within a certain radius of Parliament is now forbidden unless you have a permit from the metropolitan police. As we were chatting he was approached twice by two separate police patrols, and had to root around to find his scrumpled up letter with his details on whilst they did name checks. But he did not seem to mind, if anything his sense of humour probably made for quite enjoyable conversations for both parties. Still I found the concept of 'bureaucracized' protest quite comical.

G8 revisited

Was rooting through my G8 images the other day and found some interesting pictures showing the two different perspectives of the demonstrations. Make of them what you will...
