The Gull Guard

September 16th, 2010

Gulls standing to attention.

I made these frames in Hyde Park, London earlier this year, each in a different location.

Gulls: Hyde Park’s last line of defence against the evil dastardly … fish? … the massing forces of which threaten the peace and harmony of the park’s waterways.

Who’d have thunk it?

More coming soon!

There’s something very particular about silhouettes. They can help convey so much mood, drama and mystery.

Here is a small selection of silhouettes taken in places as diverse as London, Brussels and Normandy, France.

Above is a the equestrian statue of Godfrey de Bouillon which stands in the Royal Square in Brussels. The statue was made by Eugène Simonis, and inaugurated on August 24, 1848.

Above is the British Machine Gun Corps Memorial (also knows as The Boy David), which can today be found in the central section of Hyde Park Corner in London.

I couldn’t help but wonder about the link between machine guns and the German Zweihander/Greatsword (Yes, I know. But hey, I’m into swords).

One of the 48 statues representing the Medieval guilds of 16th century Brussels and which can be found atop neo-gothic columns surrounding the Place du Petit Sablon. The Place du Petit Sablon was built in built in 1890, and is a beautiful tree-lined park in central Brussels.

A statue atop a fountain in Hyde Park.

A kite caught in a tree on a beautiful day in Normandy, France.

Pigeon on the rails. Seen in Hyde Park.

More coming soon!

Explosions in the Sky

November 1st, 2009

I have amazing news to share with you today!

Explosions in the Sky have graciously agreed to allow me to play some of their music on my website!

They’ve been one of my favourite bands ever since I was first introduced to them, back when I was living in London, by my good friend Joao (Who, by the by is an extraordinary actor, writer and movie director – check out his IMDB page here).

Back to Explosions in the Sky – They’re primarily an instrumental band and they play simply the most incredible music. One-of-a-kind! Check out their website here!

I can only describe their music with words like: epic; totally captivating; completely immersive; intense; active; soft; and loud.

That said, their music speaks for itself.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
