feather in your cap

Feather in your cap

Make a move with what you can Dead waters rise higher than your mind Disappointment is a feather in your cap You want the truth so you can crush it in your hand There’s no map that can tell you where you are You’re in between things that only go …

Tiff McGinnis Grand Dame Electric Crazyland

Electric Crazyland

Tiff McGinnis opens her Grande Dame show, Electric Crazyland at the St Leonards’s bar tonight. Check the links for her artwork, I’m not going to describe it, go see for yourself, it’s really great. She speaks in a low Georgia drawl, with a purr like an idling V8, and tells …


Magnum Photography Awards 2107

A bit last minute, but I entered the Magnum Photography Awards 2017. I’ve literally just pulled some images out of the blog and entered them. There’s two categories, one being a series of up to ten images linked thematically or aesthetically, and the other is for single images. Although I …

Stop Amber

Stop Amber

Subtle political play at the Hastings seafront on the traffic lights. Amber Rudd is the local MP, current Home Secretary, and former Energy Secretary. Strange times in British politics, with the local elections yesterday and a snap General Election just a few weeks away, and only two years after the last …

Phil guitar, Peckham Rye

The Ballad of Peckham Rye

It’s a cold rainy night in Peckham Rye Lane. The Bussey Building bouncers are wearily attempting reasoned communication with munted people stood in the road. One boy is trying to put his phone in his eye. Two massive queues of ticket holders one side and walk ups the other. The walk …

Last Chance by Nathan Jones Photography

I gave my last chance to you

The king of the night lays upon his king-size bed, Upon which, by day, the busker plays his predictable tune, A dreary ditty from the 70s, To which only the young sing enthusiastic. The man sleeps, as the night creeps The clatter of heels, tripping, laughter and falling, and in …

Elizabeth Walker and Alan Camberwell Arms London Summer 2016

Canary in Camberwell

Elizabeth and Alan. I love this shot! One of the most satisfying things in photography is when somethings just sings to you. This is one of those moments. London hit 33C today (it’s only 31C in the Amazon right now!). Everything is in slow motion. Everything is a bit crazy. …

Staff at Frank's rooftop bar, Peckham

Bar staff @ Frank’s CafĂ©

Frank’s CafĂ© and Bar in Peckham. Escaping the heat of the street and up on the roof of a multi-storey car park. Bold Tendencies put on installation art in the dystopian car park spaces. This is ‘proper’ London. Lovely staff. Great food. Amazing views. Frank’s CafĂ© website

Grafton Place

High rise – done right. Something to be said for Glasgow and that is that there is generally a sensitivity and respect for the Georgian, Edwardian and Victorian grandiose civic buildings and churches that dominate the city. Much of the more modern architecture is extremely complimentary to the older buildings …
