The Boneyard Project

The Boneyard Project: Return Trip

I discovered this in the latest issue of ShortList magazine. Inspired by the nose art of WW2 planes, a group of graffiti artists have transformed a plane graveyard in the middle of the South-West US desert into an exhibition space. The Boneyard Project: Return Trip breathe some new life into these decommissioned planes, and the make over is quite impressive. I’m always intrigued by street graffiti art, not the kinda of stuff you see misspelt in standard black lettering on motorway flyovers, and this one of […]

Climbing A Shard of Glass

Climbing a Shard of Glass

The Shard is the building that everyone has had their eyes on since it started to pierce the skyline of London in 2009, and we’ve all been wondering what views it’s going to offer. It’ll certainly be a different way to look at the capital. But thanks to a few individuals over at Place Hacking, they’ve infiltrated the soon-to-be tallest building in the European Union and provided us with a preview! It’s not due to open to the public until […]

Website Maintenance

Hi all, The website is currently undergoing a few makeover changes, and proving to take a little more time than usual. The portfolio feature on the new purchased theme isn’t as great as it was shown, and I’m currently looking into ironing out the bugs. Should be back up and running at full capacity soon. Thanks for your patience! – MW.

Mad Men

Mad Men

“Advertising is based on one thing: happiness. And do you know what happiness is? Happiness is the smell of a new car. It’s freedom from fear. It’s a billboard on the side of a road that screams with reassurance that whatever you’re doing is OK. You are OK.” This is one of Don Draper’s opening lines of Mad Men‘s pilot episode which resonates throughout the themes of future seasons. It’s 11am and a client meeting is in full swing. All […]

Disney's John Carter

John Carter Of The Box Office Bombs

First off, I’ll openly admit I haven’t seen Disney’s John Carter so don’t take this post as a film review in any way. I already feel bad for posting about something I haven’t actually experienced. It’s more concerned with box office duds. There, cards on the table, may I indulge further?

Californication

Hank Moody returns for a 5th season of Californication, and behold, it was….different! Hank has been in a “stable” relationship for around 12 months in the time between seasons, living back in New York whilst Karen and Becca are still in LA and he seems to have curbed the drinking habit. SHO, what have you done with the real Hank and where is he? Female beauty and charm still remain his Achilles heel, but Hank really does seem to come across as […]

Heron Tower, London_2

The Heron Tower

**PORTFOLIO UPDATED** Back in September 2011, I photographed London’s Heron Tower basking in the morning sunshine. Every weekday morning I walk across London Wall which is, in my opinion, the best place to catch a glimpse of the iconic city building. The way the morning sunshine bursts through the morning smog on a clear day is quite spectacular.

Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds

Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds

The Chelmsford chapter of V Festival, 2009. The sun was shining, good friends were in tow, the beer was flowing and it was my birthday weekend. To top it off, Oasis were headlining the Sunday line-up. Around 1pm whilst basking in the sun with a few beers listening to Ocean Colour Scene, rumour starts to spread that Oasis have cancelled and Snow Patrol are taking over their slot. “F*** off!” I tell numerous of the rumour-spreaders, defending against the Gallagher […]

Battlefield vs. Call of Duty

As a loyal Call of Duty player for the best part of a decade, I “defected” and joined the roster for Battlefield 3 on the PS3 over the weekend.

Paris_1

Paris

[quote text_size=”small”] We’ll always have Paris.” [/quote] I’ve just returned from a Eurostar break to the City of Light. Having not been since I was about 13 on a school trip, I felt like I had to totally rediscover the city again for the first time. The journey started by catching the Eurostar, another first, from London St. Pancras station after a quick visit to the champagne bar (living the high life). 2 hours, an overpriced toastie and a milky coffee later, […]
