I was going through some old photo albums today when I found these Holga pictures from a trip I went on a couple of years ago to Eastbourne and Brighton. I used a severely expired role of film (something I never do) and it was about a year after the trip that I got around to developing them but I was pleasantly surprised with the soft blue and pink hues.
This arrived for my sister the other day and I couldn't help but nab it to show it off. It is Young Colossus,
a frankly gorgeous book and CD, both written by Orlando Weeks (him off of the Maccabees) with illustrations by Robert Hunter. I wish I had one for myself.
The other day I saw the Duchess of Malfi at the Old Vic. It has got everything you'd expect from a classic Jacobean play - romance, gore, incest, humour and all of it is played with a striking humanity. The set is beautiful too.

I know I'm about five years behind with this but lately I've been geeking out on Google Earth. I can't get enough of the patchwork patterns we've left over the earth. There's barely a untouched part, even islands in the farthest reaches have squares etched on the land. Here are a couple of photos of the more arid parts of Turkey, I'm obsessed with the sandy colours.
