The last week in black and white

Lots of walking, hanging out with the kid, and a dog who's getting weirder as time goes on.


Charlotte got a new tattoo

Charlotte went to Jenna Rose at Gilded Cage in Brighton to get some more birds tattooed on herself; this time on her leg. The result is brilliant, and Jenna was super nice and friendly.

Whilst Charlotte was getting stabbed, Tabitha and I spent all day hanging out. We went to an estimated one billion parks and I got stared at by a load of children because, well, that's what always happens.

We stayed up late watching the third Harry Potter film. I quite like these films. I've never seen B-movie fantasy before but it works surprisingly well. The crappy special effects and hammy acting make the whole thing quite charming rather than insufferable.


On an unrelated note, my friend Seth has been blogging again - you should go and read it if you've got enough time to be reading this. Seth is a great guy and has lots of interesting and relevant things to say. Especially where weariness of social media, creativity and motivation are concerned.


Provoke

The incredibly talented Joyce Su posted about this app a little while ago, and it's just my sort of thing. I love black and white, and I love ludicrous contrast and black blacks. Been looking for an opportunity to try it for a little while but dull light and dark blacks just make black images, which are a bit of a drag.


Snow Light Trails

I got off the train and it was absolutely smashing down with snow. I think there's something weird with my eyes today because everything looks really clear and beautiful. On the way to the station, I could see individual drops of rain exploding as they hit the floor. It's been a long day.

Anyway I thought the way the light was hitting the falling snow would make cool light trails and I was sorta right. Also sorta wrong - looks a bit like someone scribbled all over the picture.

These are all handheld at 1/4s so don't be giving me any shit about camera shake it was bloody freezing


The Road Less Travelled

If I'd brought my bike, I'd have been doing exactly the same thing.
