Cities Project

These are some of my favourite photos out of my body of work. This is my ‘Cities’ project which I did for myself, as I wanted some photography in my room. So I decided I would use pictures that represented my favourite places that I have been fortunate enough to travel to.

The choice to have them all on black and white stemmed from the photo of the Eiffel Tower. The photo was taken from the top of the Sacre-Coeur and after uploading them onto the computer I instantly felt this vintage feel to the picture and the need to play with the shadows. I tried sepia and warmer tones but black and white gives the picture a strength which I like, so I decided that the whole project would be in black and white. The only one I am going to re work on is the Sydney picture, Its too over done around the edges with the glow making it a bit over bearing. What do you think?

I am so lucky to have been able to spend time in these places. I have never been one to simply go on a ‘sun’ holiday, having always preferred to go somewhere where I can immerse myself in a different lifestyle, and experience things not available in the UK (though I suppose the sun technically falls under that bracket!).

David Beckham Style Profile

Many words have been used to describe the man above: style icon, sporting hero, metro-sexual, man’s man, ladies man as well as some less favourable ones after a certain sporting incident which we shall not go into.  This man is of course, David Beckham.

David’s style has been a hot topic of conversation for magazines and fashion sights for many years now. David is always on trend and clearly knows what he’s is doing, what looks good and is also not afraid to try out something new and take risks (we all remember the sarong don’t we).

When David isn’t busy parading around in skimpy underwear for such globally recognisable ads, like his Armani Underwear campaign, David is always at the forefront of what is hot when fully clothed.  He is the master of accessories as well as layering, hitting the right notes every time.  Now, of course David will have stylists, endless budgets and Victoria to help him dress, but I’m going to look at a few style of his and break them down so anyone can try them.

I have always been a huge fan of David’s style; he has always been a huge source of inspiration to my own way of dressing. So many times when I have been scouring the net for inspiration on new things to buy or simply how to re-invent what I already had, has David popped up on screen as having already been there and done it.

First rule for David is … Read the rest.

Your Secret by Jean-Sebastien Monzani

I JUST LOVE THIS VIDEO.

It’s by Jean-Sebastien Monzani. It really conjures up a plethora of feelings. It reminds me of a lot of the contemporary theatre work I did for Uni. I must now dig that out and show you. Take the time to watch, listen and do what is asked. Its important to take the time to just close your eyes and for just a second, imagine who your are, who you want to be, where you want to be and to feel a sense of belonging.
