‘A Survey Of London’ – Queenstown Road-Vauxhall (SWT)

A man giving his wife a brief overview of the Nine Elms development from the perspective of a slow moving train. A somewhat cynical eye cast over the concrete, steel and glass axis of this latest regeneration behemoth. Pointing to a cluster of rising apartments – ‘They’ll date quickly’. A maxim for so much of contemporary urban life perhaps.

‘Splendid Isolation’ – Colindale Avenue, NW9 (1100)

A woman cycling on a tricycle festooned with Irish colours. Flags, banners and bears draped over the bike in lieu of St. Patrick’s Day. An antidote to the pub chain balloons, stove pipe hats and beer coasters that accompany the official stamp on any ‘celebration’.
