Mike's Waterfront Warehouse

Mike's Waterfront Warehouse

I was walking round this industrial estate off Power Road when I discovered this very out-of-place sign. It looked great in contrast to the setting sun and the deep blue sky – so I whipped out my Polaroid and snapped away.

Next to me was a man on his mobile phone, who happened to spot me and upon doing so cut his conversation short. “So what are you taking pictures of the shop for?” he demanded to know. “What for” is a lovely English expression for “why” – it always makes me laugh. I told him I was an artist and it was about the colours – an explanation which seemed to satisfy him so he went into the shop.

I keep wondering if that was Mike himself.

Dav was showing me his new offices – I really liked the blue walls and the way the light came in through the blinds.

Dav told me that what I thought was “blue” was in fact “mauve”, and that I needed to take this shot again because his spiky hair was cut off. I have to admit this second take was much better – including Dav’s facial expression 😉

It's my good friend Dave Lee on Polaroid

This guy shot to instant fame when he appeared in my series Today in my Life. We were planning a spin-off called “Dave Lee on…” followed by a keyword he’d have an opinion on (which would take one word to voice).

My favourite video is Dave Lee on Remorse – you must check it out.

Al admitted to me that he’s suffering from this condition where he has about 2 seconds until he feels compelled to pull a stupid face when a camera is pointed in his direction. As you can clearly see in this example. Scientists at Caltech have expressed an interest in this rare brain disease.

It's that uber boring road that I used to cycle down

It's that uber boring road that I used to cycle down

This is Eade Road… or Vale Road, I can’t remember. They’re equally boring. Yet when I was walking down here, I thought this shot had something. What I can’t explain – I’ll leave that up to you to decide.
