Signing Off

When I first took this, I was annoyed that I'd made the sign out of focus. Now I prefer it that way - as if you are already ignoring the warning and concentrating solely on the delicious jump off at the end.

Office Restructuring

"Human beings clearly are not meant to live isolated and alone... Being connected is so fundamental to a fulfilling existence that our very contentment often depends on restructuring the places of business where we spend much of each day. Creating a context for being an appropriate part of an interdependent whole and embracing the need for interconnectedness are the challenges of today's workplace."
from Feng Shui Goes To The Office by Nancilee Wydra, 2000

Soho Breakdown

A picture story of sorts - a neon headache in more than one sense...

On The Corner

All of the photos that I've blogged so far have been taken over the last year, since I moved to London. Once I get in to the swing of things, the ambition is to post shots up as I take them.

This picture was taken at this time last year, which almost counts. I'd stopped on Leathermarket Street to photograph the Morocco Stores; these beautiful Victorian warehouse buildings that were at the centre of the area's booming leather trade.
As the bike swung around the corner, the pigeon got startled and I dipped my lens, hoping for the best. I was pleased with the shot - so much so that I forgot to photograph the Stores after all.

Sleep Comes Down

"Harvey and I sit in the bars... have a drink or two... play the jukebox. 
And soon the faces of all the other people, they turn toward mine and they smile. 
And they're saying, 'We don't know your name, mister, but you're a very nice fella...' 
Harvey and I warm ourselves in all these golden moments."
- Elwood P. Dowd, 1950
