This blog post has a double interest for me:

  1. It’s about abandoned Berlin – which is fascinating, that so much is just left.
  2. Graffiti!  I love it and where better than an empty abandoned building?

So while the narrative is very interesting and the visuals are somewhat haunting – the images within that are wonderful!  It would never have dawned on me that you could have graffiti wallpaper (as such)

On the whole well worth a watch – and for more follow that blog!!

PUNK

I’ve just been reading this post on the blog That’s Not My Age and it reminded of the fact that we visited the exhibition mentioned, in the British Library, when we were in London the other week.  There was something about the notion of taking a polaroid at the exhibition that tickled my fancy!  So here’s my ageing Punk on Polaroid (he’s not really that old – honest):

A Postcard From London

Last week we were in London.  When we were there we visited the National Gallery – so many pictures from my art history lessons – I love it!  Anyway!!  As we were coming down the stairs in the Sainsbury Wing I spotted London through the window.

CLICK!

Now thanks to the power of Apps* is seems to have taken on a postcard feel – I like it.

 

In the picture is The Gift Horse on the Fourth Plinth, Nelson’s Column, & the London Eye

Lomophoto No.32 Childhood

This is and isn’t my photo and it both is and isn’t an analogue/digital photograph.

La Charge – (rue Dussoubs)

Paris 29/08/1915

The Charge

The original photograph was taken by Léon Gimpel – Children acting out the war that was going on around them as the Grenata Street Army.  Childhood is learning and understanding through imitation.

I took this photo with my iPhone when we were in the Panthéon, Paris.  It was on display along with another exhibition of Memorials of the Great War in France

Holly

This really made my day yesterday.  What normally happens is that we plant something in the garden and it immediately starts to die off.  However, in the second year it comes back to life, it happened with the honeysuckle and it now seems to be happening with the holly.

When we put it in the ground, the leaves started to die off, berries went and never came back.  But! whatever way I was looking at it yesterday I saw that there was a load of new leaf growth – a light green growing above the deep green of last years leaves.  Upon closer inspection – we have BERRIES!  ok they’re green right now but it will be a lovely crop when (if) they turn red.
