abandoned

By the way, I still haven't done any cycling. I did a 20 minutes run, when it wasn't raining, but then two days later I had this deep pain above my scupla and I decided it was probably not ideal to be doing the running so soon.
I also can't find my cd rom of images from the MRI and X-Ray, because I want to look at them. Anyways, I'll find them.

Whilst I have not been cycling I've been mooching about on the internet, playing Scrabble against my friend over that iPhone jobby.

I have a certain interest in things that get left and abandoned, great theatrical ideas that super futuristic at the time of creation but never quite work out, i spend a bit of time googling images of those things and more recently Owls and Spies (unrelated to the first topic).
Examples include:
The Dinosaurs at Crystal Palace park (they thought they could have tea in them, they are also completely incorrect versions of dinosaurs)
Cane Hill - mental asylum - where both David Bowie and Michael Cane's brother went. In 1991 everyone who lived or worked there just up sticks and it closed. Leaving it rammed full of things for urban adventurers to photograph from paperwork to strange Victorian wheel chairs, padded cells and an 'art room' of scary pictures.
Somewhere in the the Country Side - there is also the underground billardroom, with a glass ceiling under a lake in a souther county of England.


On my journeys around the internet whilst I watched TV rather than riding around the place I've found Dark Roasted Blend - The Art and Mystery of Decay

Focused Project


Sometime in early November, Florida photographer Chip Litherland will load five 35mm cameras with color film, carefully pack them into shipping cases, and mail them to five different photographers around the globe. Each photographer who receives a camera will be challenged to shoot just one picture before they have to ship the camera on to someone else. Assuming they aren’t lost in the mail or ruined by curious customs agents, the cameras will eventually pass through the hands of 200 photographers on a round-the-world journey.
