Our big move from Brighton to London started this past weekend. The first load of stuff was taken up in my infinitely small car and unloaded at Jordan’s parents house where we will be staying for a while until we get on to our feet.
Apologies for the lack of updates recently. I’m moving house in two weeks and going on holiday in three so I have been completely rushed off my feet. I am therefore a few days late with my opinions on the new Cure single.
… the police do apparently. Only joking! Although I often made my views on the shooting of Jean Charles De Menezes very clear to anyone that would hear them, it seems that the recent police shooting of Mark Saunders was fairly justified. However, the Guardian have run a piece about how he was shot ‘a number of times’ as the police disabled him. The family are also quoted as saying ‘he didn’t endanger anyone at all to my knowledge’.
I have had a Flickr account for a while now but I have never just sat and really looked through other people’s pictures.
I’ve really been missing out.
There are some really amazing photographers out there. I found a few pictures of the Hong Kong skyline and some of the amazing looking people in Harajuku, Tokyo. However, it was this HDR image of Battersea Power Station that really excited me. It is my favourite building in London because it looks like something pulled straight out of Nineteen Eighty Four (in fact, if I remember correctly, it was the Ministry of Love in the 1984 film). I also have a bit of a thing for HDR – it makes things look so surreal and dream like. It also has a tendency to make skies look very ominous. I liked it so much that it is currently my desktop wallpaper.
Oh dear. Today I found out that the city I will be living in from August will be run by a cartoon character.
