Firebrand

Inspired by the EMINEM song, Watch me Burn

Just gonna stand there
And watch me burn
But that’s alright
Because I like
The way it hurts
Just gonna stand there
And hear me cry
But that’s alright
Because I love
The way you lie
I love the way you lie
I love the way you lie…

Clair de Lune

Clair de Lune

Votre âme est un paysage choisi
Que vont charmant masques et bergamasques
Jouant du luth et dansant et quasi
Tristes sous leurs déguisements fantasques.

Tout en chantant sur le mode mineur
L’amour vainqueur et la vie opportune,
Ils n’ont pas l’air de croire à leur bonheur
Et leur chanson se mêle au clair de lune,

Au calme clair de lune triste et beau,
Qui fait rêver les oiseaux dans les arbres
Et sangloter d’extase les jets d’eau,
Les grands jets d’eau sveltes parmi les marbres. Continue reading “Clair de Lune”

Noirish Apologies

Noir Magazine - Conceptual mazine and masthead design.

I must apologise for the lack of content here recently.  As a design student now in my second year of my course (part time) I am pretty busy with homework a lot of the time. I hope to have a range of different tutorials up over the coming weeks though.

Not to mention photos and assignment pictures.

*** The above assignment features photography by yours truly. The image is one I took of up and coming singer, Katie Weston.

London

I absolutely adored London.  It was big and dirty and scary.  It has the Tower of London, Tower Bridge, the Churchill Museum (which I adored), the Brittish Museum (which was unfortunately filled to the brim with school kids). I loved the muffins and juice we got from the little cafe right nextdoor to the hostel we stayed in. I loved the fact that we were right across the road from Shepherds Bush station.  I even adored how people got really narky when you didn’t stand to the right on the escalators but didn’t actually say anything to you until they managed to get past and then they’d only grumble and insult you under their breath. I loved being in the shadow of Big Ben. I loved walking through Regents Park even though Allison and I were trying to find London Zoo.  I love how English people don’t know how to queue.  London is fun.

London Eye-View

Last night the manbeast stopped and, while looking over at a few of my photographs, quietly said it was nice to be reminded that one doesn’t need top-notch photographic gear to get a great image.  Yeah, that’s a compliment I’ll take.  I happen to agree.  Some of my favourite shots have been taken on a Pentax ist* DS or the manbeast’s Nikon D70s.  Neither are fantastic cameras but they do the job.  The above image was taken, if I remember correctly, on Steve’s Nikon D70s.  I love this photograph.  I love the smog, I love the dirty yellow sunset reflected off the glass, I love the flecks of light on the far-away buildings and the vibrant colours on the bridge.  All caught and dealt with beautifully in appalling conditions from within a very dirty pod on the London Eye.
