Cool set! I nearly went to this, but I had sudden inspiration for a (non-photography related) project so got stuck in to that instead. Hope to go to one of these sometime :-)

This time last year I decided to move my broadband from talktalk and eventually went with Tesco and added the phone too.

Just found out that Tesco are selling their homephone and broadband to

Seaside Walks  - 
 
After Saturday's walk and exhibitions; I been thinking up something else.

I did mention that a trip to Brighton could be on the cards but I've had another thought.

Dungeness

I haven't pinned down exact details yet but it would be closer to May/June as the weather has a chance of being better.

You can get a groupsave for the train for numbers above 3, up to 8 which will knock 1/3 of the price (not sure if you have to book in advance).

Train is from St. Pancras to Ashford, then bus to Dungeness which is about a hour. Which depending on which train we caught would give about 5 hours there.  Last bus back for Ashford is about 17:20.

So that's where I'm at, at the moment.

Just seen LSCC is on this weekend at Excel

London Super Comic Con

Although you have to pay and have tickets to get into the event there are always characters wandering around outside.

Good for Superhero portraits :-)

Story
Tagline
My work explores the relationship between the tyranny of ageing and UFO sightings. With influences as diverse as Kierkegaard and John Cage, new synergies are distilled from both explicit and implicit narratives. Ever since I was a student I have been fascinated by the unrelenting divergence of relationships. What starts out as contemplation soon becomes corrupted into a dialectic of power, leaving only a sense of unreality and the inevitability of a new beginning. As shifting phenomena become distorted through studious and academic practice, the viewer is left with an epitaph for the edges of our world.
