Clean Slate 13/1

In london, the East End to be precise. Down a notorious street, near a market is a house. A double fronted place. Behind a well painted door lies a corridor, with rooms of business hiving off. The biggest acts as the jewellers. A large glass display counter dominates the room, and is tastefully laid out […]

Take 2 12/1

Two photos: this the first. Outside tonight with HDR on, this is the view of the world outside our front door. I like the way the rushes look as though they’ve been zapped by Daleks. To the right is the tree at the end of our garden plot. I’m going to play with this picture […]

Helpless 7/1

Helpless. Not being in control. That feeling every writer gets when they send their work off to be read by someone else. We’ve all had the feeling. Remember that essay? that project you were so proud of when you were at school. That report for your boss, now you are at work. A DIY project, […]
