Passed a very satisfying couple of hours checking out the architecturally interesting Cressingham Gardens as part of Open House London. Those of you interested in such things could do a lot worse than watch Homes Under the Sledgehammer, a short (20 minutes), and very interesting film that explains it all way better than I can in words… And if f you fancy helping with the fight to defend decent social […]
Never imagined that this would be my thing, but decided to expand my horizons and was very pleasantly surprised by this acrobatic Aussie outfit. A very talented bunch of guys. Did things with their bodies that just shouldn’t be possible, and very amusing to boot… Briefs: The Second Coming Promo with Vox Pops from Briefs on Vimeo. Catch em if you can…

I didn’t actually go to the exhibition on this occasion as there’s a great view from the bridge approach and surrounds. I’m not sure if Joe Public can actually walk amongst the poppies, but imagine it would be a really cool thing to do. Whilst I […]
