will the bus ever come?

Waiting at the bus-stop by a particular Tesco Metro in Peckham I usually look for a photo opportunity (despite the bags of shopping hanging off me) such as this one. The hoarding with its ever-changing ‘wallpaper’ provides a zany background to my series of photographs of people also waiting for the bus. Occasionally someone spots what I am doing and they glower. A hazard of street photography.

Stella artist

The Peckham Peculiar is a fab free local newspaper and sometimes I write a feature for them or take a photo. In the last issue I did both. The article is about Stella Cardew – I consider her to be the doyenne of Peckham artists. She was rather embarrrassed by this description but that is because she is modest, too.                                   http://peckhampeculiar.tumblr.com/post/131609025729/a-stella-career

White poetic Christmas

White copy

The White Poems is a hand-made limited edition book of poems written by Helen Adie, Pia Goddard and me. We’ve been three corners of a writers’ circle for several years and this is our third book. Last night we launched it at a local gallery, Jeannie Avent in East Dulwich. Live music topped and tailed the poetry reading, glasses fizzed and people even bought the book.
