It’s my first Etch-A-Sketch Masterpiece in Decades!

We were passing through a service station in Beaconsfield very late yesterday and spent a spontaneous night at the Etap Hotel. It’s connected via a walkway to a 24hr neon world of McDonald’s, Starbuck’s and an Arcade featurung Outrun 2. It felt just like Vegas! We discovered a Pocket Etch-A-Sketch at WH Smith, and I …

Suspicious Sandwich from K-Mart in Key Largo

Imagine this: you buy a deep filled sandwich for an incredible $2.89 (that’s about £1.50 if that). Even though it’s a bit stodgy, can you believe that the sell by date is THREE WEEKS from now? What on earth is IN this thing? And when was it made? I guess some things are best left …

The #Miamibeach Report – Day 8

Art Deco is as funky as it comes down here, up and down the beach. We had to change hotels today and moved from the magnificent Richmond Hotel on 17th street further up north to the Circa 39 on 39th street. It’s a long story, and I won’t bore you with the details… With all …

Miami Beach Huts Project, Day 7

Miami Beach Hut Project, Day 4

We were just reminiscing over breakfast at Paul’s on Drexel: it’s going really well here down south. Even with the occasional thick cloud cover and scary thunderstorm, we managed to cover a long stretch between 15th and 46th street over the last couple of days. This means of course getting up at 6 or earlier, …

Miami Beach Hut Project, Day 1

We’ve used our first day to recce and acclimatise (it is a 5 hour time shift you know), and even though temperatures are over 30 degrees, we had a long day and made the most of it. Plenty of pictures in the can, including digitals, Holga shots and Dianaramas. There’s only one slight problem with …

#Holga Hospital

I’ve just finished modding my last three Holgas, that’s five in total. All my funky little darlings now boast a flocked interior and a switchable aperture. I’ve been busy shooting several new projects, including Urban Decay and Fashion Victims. Watch this space for a serious Holga Overindulgence, coming very soon!

Chiswick Eyot

On my lunch break, I went out to recce the Chiswick surroundings by the river. I expected to find all kinds of rickety old mansions and funky houses. Instead, the very low tide on the Thames caught my attraction, with a path leading to what’s known as Chiswick Eyot: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chiswick_Eyot I remember discovering this years …
