Wish you where here: Elephant and Castle

 Part Two of the Elephant and Castle, photo adventures. I'm enjoying the Elephant and Castle's colour palette and we do like to see a venue fighting it's ground. You can find out more about the Coronet here. More photos to follow.

Elephant and Castle 2017

 I'm based over at Elephant and Castle for a couple of weeks. That's how life rolls as a freelancer. 
The last time I freelanced this way was for Ministry of Sound magazine, before that I caught a few bands playing here. Like a lot London hotspots, it's interesting to see the gentrification process. No idea how the Elephant will live in it's new castle but here's a photo report as follows... 
Please do let me know if you'd like a certain locations checked up on and I'll try my best.

Cross Bones Graveyard and Remembrance Garden

Working a few freelancing shifts in the old haunt of Southwark. Speaking of haunts, I made a lunch- time pilgrimage to Cross Bones Graveyard, over on Redcross Way. This is where the outcast dead rest of yesteryears and is now a shrine to the modern day equivalent.  You can find more info about the its history and events here
NEWS FLASH! Cross Bones Graveyard update, with pictures from inside the remembrance garden at then end of the post.

Birthday drinks in Walthamstow

 Caught up with the gang for George's Birthday. Headed down to Mother's Ruin just off Shernhall Street. God's Own Junkyard can be found there along with a few micro breweries, including Wild Card brewery.

Back in the Freelancer world. You don't know how lucky you are, boy

I'm now back out into the freelance world after having served at the Daily Express and Daily Star websites. Two years of internet news and especially with 2016 being a corker. The sad thing is we've yet to taste the venom of a post Brexit world...

I got to spend a day at The Week Junior  at Dennis publishing. They're based over in Fitzrovia, probably my favourite part of town. Photo adventure as follows...

The mighty Boon

Hooked up with the Boon for a Shoreditch pint at the Barley Mow. Team Umbrella were in attendance too. We also got chatting to a fanzine called Mother Nathan. Good times.
