Feeling generous?

If you are, these rather special, handmade in Italy Fracap mountain boots wouldn't go a miss. May have to go and lust after them in Oi Polloi seeing as I'm in Manchester for the weekend...

An old favourite

"The sun had not yet risen. The sea was indistinguishable from the sky, except that the sea was slightly creased as if a cloth had wrinkles in it. Gradually as the sky whitened a dark line lay on the horizon dividing the sea from the sky and the grey cloth became barred with thick strokes moving, one after another, beneath the surface, following each other, pursuing each other, perpetually." - Virginia Woolf, The Waves

Just a thought

I personally think that Dulcie would have made the perfect New Wave heroine...

Studio notes

It's been a busy few weeks, trying to further my work in the studio around trips home and late night shifts at Tesco. I've been shooting medium format on a regular basis, a format I had always been hesitant about but have found myself embracing, and I've found my work coming back to a relationship with cinema that I began to explore last year. As well as this I've been slowly working myself through Jean-Luc Godard's extensive back catalogue (I've got a long way to go), this weekend watching Une femme est une femme and Pierrot Le Fou. In the meantime I've also been reminding myself how good this album is:

Should also remind anyone that's interested about my website which is now over a month old, although still a work in progress...
