I bought Chris Verene's latest book 'Family' on a whim and boy, was it worth it, it's a surprisingly affecting book.

Unlike the plethora of sober and concerned works around the theme of "my XXX YYY",

(where XXX is an adjective such as drunken, dying, mentally disturbed, old, drug addicted or sexually promiscuous and YYY is a family member such as father, mother, uncle, neighbour or grandmother)

'Family', like some of the best examples of the genre (e.g. Larry Sultan, Mitch Epstein, Leonie Hampton) isn't overwhelmed by earnestness or seriousness. There are some wondrously intimate and funny photographs accompanied by some which are terribly sad. The work is also a terrific example of how text can greatly augment a series of photographs. Highly recommended!

Fried Banana with ice cream is popular at Chinese restaurants esp. down under, after a good corn soup & chop suey.

I usually have a Chinese person read aloud each place name, then I write it in pinyin (Romanized) underneath the city/point. Or compare it to google maps.Your eyes adapt to some extent to recognizing the characters of bigger, known places, I think you'll find this once you're here. At least it's not a cursive script like Arabic, that'd be worse.

Ok, the time has come. I seriously doubt anyone on my Google Plus or Facebook lists will be interested in this, but I am selling much of my 35mm rangefinder kit!

Anyone interested?
It's camera sale time! I've procrastinated. I've debated the subject. I've agonised. But finally, I'm decided. Writing my last post was what prompted me to finally do it: I've ...

Car wreck in the last place I'd expect: next to a deserted Scottish loch with only the sound of bird life as company

Paris, October 2010. I had a nap in a nearby field soon after I made this photograph, the only time in all my adventures I stopped for a snooze.

I may never see this many undeveloped rolls of film lying on my floor ever again.

Looking through satellite maps of Shanghai... two observations:

1. I can't believe how much has changed in just 4 years. Well, I can but to see it is just incredible.

2. More "what-the-hell-is-THAT?!" moments than in any other mapping experience that I can remember!

I'm gathering, cleaning and photographing some of my 35mm camera gear for sale over the next couple of months, and to be honest I'm slightly disgusted by how long some of this sexy kit has sat unused. I'm slightly more disgusted by how much it all cost (oh those years of folly!)

I just found receipts for some of the Leica lenses, and they seem to have gone UP in value over the last 3-4 years!

These guys were great: friendly, professional and efficient. As they moved a large number of boxes out of my flat, they gave me the best advice: "just sit back and let us do all the hard work". Take them up on it, I'll definitely use them again when I next move!

14:20 - cycling to St Pancras Station for train to Dover, then ferry to France for a bike touring holiday. 14:25 - hit by a red light jumping cyclist. Front wheel warped, rear rack bent out of shape. Holiday wrecked, all my carefully laid plans dashed! 14:30 - still in shock, I realise that London Bicycle Workshop are literally 20 metres away from my accident. I think to myself “oh well, the tour is finished, might as well get the wheel fixed and drown my sorrows” 14:35 - the guys tell me that they can rebuild the wheel quickly. How quickly? In less than an hour and THEY CONVINCE ME that I can still do this tour. While Pete rebuilds the wheel, Jerzy lends me the store computer so I can book a new ferry ticket. 14:40 to 15:20 - as the wheel build occurs, they give me a lot of good advice about various groupsets and bikes. We have a great chat. 15:25 - front wheel build completed, rear wheel re-tensioned, rack bent back into shape, stem adjusted and other bits checked for damage. The only thing that can’t be done is slightly bent handlebars, other than that and a slightly dented tube (thank god for steel frames), the bike is fully functional! To top it off, they only charge me for the wheel build and tell me that I made their afternoon, as they like a bit of a challenge. 17:10 - arrive in Dover, holiday saved. I cannot begin to tell you what a fantastic experience this has been. As far as I’m concerned, these guys now have a customer for life. Places like this need to continue to exist in London! Postscript - exactly a year later, my rear wheel makes unintended contact with a recalcitrant car. As I turn up, Pete mentions what ever happened to me. Well, the answer is now I've had both my front and rear wheels rebuilt by him after traffic accidents. Great job, as always!
