Panasonic Lumix G1 : Camera test.





I've been playing with the Panasonic Lumix G1. I like it, but it's not my cup of tea.

Foot Trip.




The other week, I walked from the SouthBank to Bethnal Green. Sunday just gone, I walked from Leytonstone to Bethnal Green. That’s a lot of walking my freind.

Park Life : Revisited



17 January 2010 : Mile End Pak

17 June 1995 : A veiw from the photographers pit at the Blur, Mile End gig. Fans Probabaly watching the Boo Radleys ( remember them, A?) .
A Closer look at the Mile End stadium, notice the same tower block.

Damon Albarn of Blur, live at Mile End Stadium 1995 : Taken by yours truely of course.


In the area of Mile End/Bow, East London. They do seem to get quite excited about awarding blue plaques for the most random of things. There’s even one for a dog biscuit factory? Pity, there isn’t any for where cockney criminals drank, or for where the Elephant man would have first been exhibited. These would have been far more interesting.

And I wonder if they will ever place a Blue Plaque on what was formerly known as the Mile End stadium ( now a park ) in years to come, for services rendered to the Indie-Wars.

I do like a good radio show.



If you’re unfamiliar to the world of 6 music, then may I suggest that you check out Jarvis Cocker’s new radio show. You can listen to it again and again on the BBC iPlayer; yes, the wonderments of modern technology.
A we highlight on the show for me was the mention of an author, Richard Brautigan. I’m not familiar with his work, so I’m off to Amazon to check him out.

Normal photographic nonsense will resume shortly.

Test






How's this?


iPhonee post.

iSnow



I took this on my iPhone. I can’t seem to upload pics direct to my to my Blog at the moment.
I’ve Googled it and searched the App store, but I haven’t found an easy way to blog via the iPhone as yet.

Whilst I’m on the subject, the iPhone camera is pretty poor. It’s similar to those early digital cameras, rubbish. However, there’s an App for that and of course there would be, wouldn’t there? May I recommend downloading Camerabag or try one the various kooky camera downloads to give your pics a little more shazam.

NYE - Blue Moon - Tarot reading





A view from North West London, where I had the pleasure of seeing in the new year. We watched the fireworks up on the roof at midnight; the fireworks you can see are coming from the direction of the Millennium wheel. What with all the noise and flashes from various local firework displays that you could see from all around, it did make you think just how eerie the blitz would have been.

NYE, was also a blue moon. This is when you get two full moons in one month and yes, this happens once in every blue moon .

This is my Tarot card reading for the year ahead. This particular reading is known as a Celtic cross. According to the reading I will be having some ups and downs followed by some big decisions to make. Exciting stuff?
