Saving Ron’s Place

On a quiet street in Oxton, Wirral, there’s a house previously rented by Ron Gittins. Almost every surface has been painted or reworked into a piece of art. Hieroglyphs above the picture rails. Portraits of people painted right onto the walls. Murals on the ceilings. Papier-mâché torsos. A concrete lion the size of a fireplace

Hanging out in Venice

The first time I was in Venice I noticed how odd it was that everyone hung their washing out over the street. It was certainly pretty to look at but just odd. Here in the UK we put our washing in our back yard hidden away from everyone. Venetians often don’t have back yards so they

2 days at Tebay Service Station

I followed the news as rioting spread around London via Twitter, Sky News and the BBC News. Watching the large furniture store burn down in real time

Bascule Bridge

About a year ago I was out with friends taking photos around the bascule bridge near the tabaco warehouse in Liverpool. At this point in time it was closed for repairs.
