London is a fast changing city these days thanks to the Olympics 2012, our cityscape is in transformation. Before this lonely place gets earmarked for demolition, we had to go sneak around.

I am drawn to abandoned things. I has the same feel as an unfinished story to me. Canon EOS 450d
The laundrette is slap bang in the De Beauvoir council estate. This place certainly won’t feature in the tourist guides yet it is for me a part of the REAL London.
Me wandering what those kids across the road are up to.
My hairstyle was my own twist on the super duper VV Brown’s do!
I live amongst smashed syringes,
Squatters’ doors hangin’ off the hinges,
Hookers lookin’ money for Bobby, shottin’ their minges.
Leavin’ used condoms out on the staircases,
Next to the broken pipes that’s left by the Base Heads.
Local estate heads, have grown up to hate Feds,skinnyman
How to make your bus shelter hair immovable:
It was a blustery day and the wind was relentless. I am glad that I used the following super hair stuff to keep my do in place.
Shiseido Ma Cherie Souffle Wax – a moussey wax that adds shine and is perfect for fiddly hair styles.
L’oreal Elnett – smells like grannies but holds everything in place no joke without making your hair rock hard!
After the wonderful smell of Jerk Chicken wafted straight up my hooter, I couldn’t resist! I wanted some too. Popped into IN TING on Dalston Lane and grabbed us a bite. This place does the best Jerk this side of Murder Mile.
It is good to be back in London. I always miss the diversity when I am away. Oh but I shall be steering the next post back to Hong Kong.
Be Back Soon.
