The benefits of not sleeping
The benefits of having a bad night and not sleeping very well is that you get to go out in what feels like the middle of the night but is really 5:30 on a lovely Sunday morning..it was quite chilly and crisp this morning so in anticipation of the supermoon eclipse due tonight I dragged…
cut out and pasted
Manchester is always a pleasure to visit and this ‘retro televisions & filing cabinets’ cut out and paste urban art certainly caught my eye in the northern quarter last weekend. Love the little ornaments too!
she’s in love…the writing on the wall

Death metal, thrash metal, hardcore punk, grindcore… all unknown and unheard of and I never imagined I would get to…
The man in black
Just another day in Blackpool..love his Johnny Cash style and the look he’s giving me…he really is the main character in this image but I wonder if he was on his own or on a different street would the image still be as good?
Just somewhere to sit…the simple lines and repetition of these beautiful chairs in the magnificent castle in Bratislava just had to be captured in an image.
