I Think I've Hit My Mid-life Crisis - a Vinyl Obsession
So, as I alluded to in my previous blog post, I seem to have hit my mid-life crisis. Whilst I haven't ruled out getting a ridiculously fast car, or running off with someone half my age, my crisis seems to have centred itself around an obsession for vinyl. H...

An Urban Wander near Gloucester Train Station
Having arrived too early for the hospital visiting hours, I decided to take a short wander to see what was around. I knew the area near the hospital was close to the one remaining Gloucester station, but was amazed at the size of the area that the old railw...
Having arrived too early for the hospital visiting hours, I decided to take a short wander to see what was around. I knew the area near the hospital was close to the one remaining Gloucester station, but was amazed at the size of the area that the old railway sheds and sidings used to occupy.

An Early Morning Urban Wander around Hammersmith and Fulham, London
This is my first post of 2015, so Happy New Year everyone. My first Urban Wander of 2015 took me back to some familiar territory, but as always I spotted new things and things that had changed since my last visit. The first picture is all about change. The ...

Ghost Signs from Asheville, North Carolina

As it becomes more and more difficult to get outside in the light during the week, I am resorting back to my summer holiday snaps for today's blog post. Although it seems like a distant memory now, we had three wonderful weeks on holiday in the US back in July/August this year.

An Urban Wander from Shoreditch to Islington, London
With the evenings firmly in the grip of winter darkness, it's very difficult to manage to do any urban wandering after work, but fortunately this week I had some time on my hands during daylight hours. For this particular Urban Wander, I have returned to on...

New post in my vintage postcards blog for this week's Sepia Saturday #vintage   #fishing   #postcards  
I'm with Alan on this one in that I have also never been a fisherman. I have a friend who is very much in to it to the extent that he has pictures of fish he has caught on his phone, but it's something that has never really caught my imagination. However, I'm staying on theme for this week's ...

A short Urban Wander around Queen's Park and Kensal Green, London
Unfortunately I had nowhere near enough time to do this area justice, and only managed the briefest of urban wanders during a short lunch break. I've posted about the Kensington Gasworks previously when I wandered along the Grand Union Canal, but had not se...
This was a curious old van. I've seen ones similar to this used as coffee shops, but this one just seemed to be full of cardboard boxes, with a foliage trim to the windscreen. Maybe it's work in progress and will transform into something wonderful. Old Citroen Van, Queen's Park, London ...

A short wander around Horniman Gardens, Forest Hill, London
Only a brief post today, but hopefully the few pictures make up for the lack in quantity. I had the opportunity to venture south of the river last week, and actually quite far south, to a part of London where I'm pretty sure I've never been to before, Fores...

Waterloo Sunrise
Last week I had the chance to take a trip out of Waterloo station into Surrey. The day was fresh, but the skies were cloudless and the sun was glorious. Also I was heading in the opposite direction to the rush hour commuters, so even though it was only 9am,...
Last week I had the chance to take a trip out of Waterloo station into Surrey. The day was fresh, but the skies were cloudless and the sun was glorious. Also I was heading in the opposite direction to the rush hour commuters, so even though it was only 9am, the station seemed unusually quiet.

Story
Introduction
Avid music listener and collector since the late 1970's. I like all sorts of genres ... punk, post-punk, new wave, industrial, ambient, krautrock, alternative, indie, goth ... naturally I have quite a few items I no longer need in physical format, so here's a link to my records and CDs for sale

I'm also interested in most things vintage, and have 100's of vintage postcards for sale and vintage magazines for sale

Having grown up in one of the London suburbs, I'm also interested in John Betjeman, J.G.Ballard, London suburbs, Avengerland (Borehamwood area where the classic 1960's and 1970's TV shows were filmed).
