I have a soft spot for Holland Park from when I was about 12. My Dad, bought a second-hand car ( Ford Granada MK2 ) from an Army Major type-chap. I went with my dad to pick the car up, as that’s the sort of thing you do when you're a kid. Yes, picking up an old car up on the weekend was an exciting adventure and I think it Probably still is in my book.
But imagine, the sort of house that an Army Major type-chap would live in. Fucking awesome.
There you go, The Holland Park story.

If you ever get the pleasure to study photography at college ( or maybe you already have ) then no doubt, you will be drawn to this type of subject matter. You will probably stick these images up on the wall for all the bare. Then probably waffle on about how they represent isolation and so on. Meanwhile, your tutor will have drifted off with boredom and would be possibly thinking what to do for lunch, the college canteen or the student union bar perhaps?
Why not treat these photos as a metaphor to how your post college career will pan out. Maybe a couple of years in a bubbly film lab, whilst the likes of greedy landlords and and the tax man, bludgeon your creative soul to death. You never know, this kind of talk could get you an A+?

A couple of snaps from James’ wedding that took place on the Saturday. Location, Southend on Sea.
Actually, I presumed that I had taken a lot more photos. However, I now recall that I spent most of the time chatting away to people at the bar. A lot of catching up to do I guess. Good to see a lot of friendly faces and thedailytitlow was in attendance too.

I had the honour of being invited to the West Ham v Burnley game, Saturday just gone. My Granddad; on my mums side, was a fan of the Hammers, so I guess that’s why I am. Mind you, I think my interest wavered shortly after their F.A. Cup win back in 1980 and most probably the telly rights moving to Sky television wouldn’t have helped either.
I noticed in the Football program that the Cockney Rejects are playing a 30th anniversary gig soon too.
I’ll dig out some photos of yours truly from the 1980s era, donned in West Ham paraphernalia once I find some.
