truman brewery, Brick Lane

Took this on my way to record some stuff at Rich's last weekend. Although the weather was predicted to be pretty bad, it was lovely, crisp and sunny as I walked up Brick Lane. Posted by Picasa

commuter rush

Ended up taking a rather convoluted jouney in this morning. My Bike frame has snapped so I no longer have my own wheels to speed me along. Instead I'm taking the tube, which is awful, except that I get to read the Climbing Essays book by Jim Perrin that Becky bought me for my birthday.

This morning when I got to paddington the district line was ruined, so I decided to take the Hammersmith and City. This means crossing the whole of paddington, which would be annoying except that the sunlight was streaming in and made an interesting picture of the rushing commuters. Posted by Picasa

friday....I'm ready to go home

Man, sometimes days can drag on. Makes you wonder what you're doing. My job is cool - product design, but I find it hard to sit here and draw shape after shape after shape. Searching for some new design feature to seel to the client. Product product product. I'm ready to go home and chill. Well, out for dinner tonight at Sianny and G's house. I'm looking forward to that. Leah didn't get her Argentinian Visa yet, which is hampering our plans to dissapear, and quelling the excitement, replaced by anxiety.

A reservoir in Wales

Before heading home we went for a walk by this reservoir in Wales. It was lovely, but the Water levels are still very low! Posted by Picasa

These rather small fireworks were made more exciting by the fact that they kept falling over and threateneing to shower us all in sparks... Posted by Picasa
