I've posted this guy before but I've wanted to go back to the V and A for a long time as the picture previously taken by me was pants. This does this amazing sculpture a better service. The face is about 4cms tall, to give you an idea of scale.
Word of advice - you need a permit to use a tripod in the V&A. I didn't know until a very nice security guard came over and told me after I'd already shot a few off, as it were (results mixed - they may or may not appear here at some stage). Anyway, she was very nice about it. Makes getting that D3 with low-noise-at-high-iso-rating all the more important.....
I quite like this picture and yet something about it doesn't quite work - I think it is the square structure to the left - makes it unbalanced. Anyway, taken a few weeks ago by the White Cross on a foggy day when the river flooded.
So a blond prig on something called the ACA Show in Australia tries to take Corey Worthington (the lad with the party, you know the one!) to task about his party that went wrong. Thank god he has more about him than she does - watch here.
"A small glass of red wine please." "We don't do small glasses." "Well, one of your regular glasses then." "Certainly sir. That will be £5.35." I could, of course, pay that for the whole bottle and not have to sit in a decaying canteen at the bottom of an office block. But that would be to miss out on the whole "Square Pig" (oh how we laughed at the witty play on words) experience.
Porn photos? No, not that. Stupid programmes that I wasn't interested in? No, not that either. Quizzes? Nope, annoying though they were. None of these made me deactivate. It was Experian. Everywhere. So, you have built up a credit profile of me against my wishes? And you want me to pay for this? And you want me to read about your company every time I visit facebook? Well, sorry, that's enough. I hated you before I ever went on the site because of your business model. And if I hated you then I loathe you now, more, even, than British Gas. Quite a feat for six month's worth of advertising. Anyway, goodbye FB, it wasn't so good after all.
