William S. Burroughs







The Photographers Gallery are exhibiting photographs by Andy Warhol, David Lynch and William S. Burroughs (pictured). It ends this Sunday so hurry on down there if you're a fan of their work. I personally thought it was interesting seeing what they chose as there subject matter. In a modern world I'd guess Warhol would have been on Tumblr and Burrough's may have been more of a Wordpress kind of guy?

Oven Fresh




This is the top end of Lea Bridge road and probably not too far off of what the Bowery might have been like.

Experiencing Nirvana aka Callaghan as you are.



 Experiencing Nirvana photography exhibition is on at the Proud Camden Gallery, ends 11th May. I was at this gig (Reading Festival 1992, photo by Charles Peterson), pretty much at the front. Kurt Cobain, threw his guitar into the crowd,  I wonder where it is now? Probably more to do with me being older now but they really do look young in these photos. Also a lot of these photos I had to dupe from my early days at Retna. Back then Michael Putland said that Kurt Cobain's death was similar to when John Lennon died. Being younger at the time I guess I didn't quite understand just what he meant.

Late night on Shernhall street.














Paid a visit to the new location of Gods Own Junkyard  which happens to be pretty much    facing the Wild Card Brewery , what's not to like?
I'm putting together an exhibition for this years Art Trail and i'm still working out what images to use. It would be good to include something from here although like before I find that photographs don't really do the place much justice. I guess you have to go and visit the place for yourself . Oh and err, best take your cheque book with you.
P.S. These were all shot on my new lens too.

More photo adventures with my new lens.








  A few more shots taken with my new lens. The bottom pic is of Grayson Perry's old studio. I won't mention its location as it looks like somebody has moved in.

hops

    Planted a selection of seeds at home (sorry Jamie for giving you a Hitler moustache, I     hope this doesn't curse my crops) )  and did some more digging aka weeding down at the plot. I've also joined the Walthamstow Beer Collective, growing scheme. They give you some hops to grow with instructions and if it pans out then you get to contribute your hops to a local micro-brewery. I've planted some hops at the allotment and some at home, I'll keep you posted.
