This is my attempt to take a picture every day of 2007 which should represent my day in some way. I'm a Politics student at Hull University (UK) and im in my final year so 2007 will include some big events for me - graduation, moving to a new city and flat, starting a new job etc. So hopefully this will project will be a good account of an intersting year!!

Anyway enough talking here's the first picture.

I really need to visit ALL diaries EVERY day. Two weeks to catch up on, starting with a happy family pic on 22nd, Simon under the weather (you must be better now) some superb shots, really different perspectives. Lovely Simon, I have commented on your stream. And I don't know what to think about there still being punks in London. Surely that fad passed on long ago?
Simon-K 11 years ago
Cheers Rob, definitley past the worst of it now!!! I saw the comments you made - glad you like the pictures! That phase has definitely not passed, you can see them quite often really. But then I think London is the type of city where every fad lives on to some extent for years and years :)

####No Picture#######

After work I got together with a small group of friends and we decided to go to Canary Wharf. Now the thing you need to know about Canary Wharf is thats its full of bankers, stockbrokers and really corporate type workers, and so most of the bars are set to cater for them. Anyway so we headed towards one particular area of the Whaf and straight away I knew I looked out of place. Because i've been dressing casually to work this week (rather than my normal suit and tie) I was wearing trainers and this became a problem!!! We were turned away from about three bars because of my trainers!!! But finally we found somwhere that would let me in, and even they were a bit strange. They insisted on checking our bags before going in, the a couple of my friends had bottled water which they were forced to throw away, and then we were all asked to show ID!!! I've never been ID'd before, even when I was underage, so that was a bit strange.

Then when I was at the bar it took me ages to get served. This was probably because on either side of me were really good looking girls and the barman kept serving them first. Although I can't blame him really, in his situation i'd have probably paid more attention to them, than to me :)

I had a great time though and it was good to relax a bit have a few drinks and catch up with my friends. By the time I got home, I was so tired that I didn't even think to take a photo and just went to bed.

St Etheldreda's Church, London

After going out last night I was in no mood for an early morning so I slept in until about 12 :) After that I headed into London and had a wander around an area I'd not really been to much and while there stumbled onto a Church that was almost hidden, you couldn't see it from the street and it was down a private road. I was so suprised because its such a nice building, and is also really old. Someone told me it was the oldest catholic church in the uk!! And its actually mentioned in a couple of Shakespeare's plays. After that I headed to Covent Garden for a mooch around, but got fed up and just headed home and watched the Qualifying for the Hungarian F1 Grand Prix

My family, framed

Well today started off with me thinking it was going to be a bit boring really, a bit mundane, but it ended up a bit different. The weather here has turned really hot so I wasn't in the mood to do much, but I needed to do some food shopping and I wanted to buy some photoframes so after lunch I decided to pop into Canary Wharf. The first that was different was the whole place was full of clowns, jugglers and other circus acts which was really surreal. I think they were there as part of a kids weekend but im not entirely sure.

But I then got a further, albeit much nicer, suprise. About five minutes later I bumped into a girl I'd met really briefly a few weeks ago at a works reception, but because I was working I didn't really get chance to talk to her. Turns out she lives not far from Canary Wharf and she was doing the same sort of thing that I was doing. Anyway we ended up going for coffee and having a really good time. Definitely made the day more interesting than i'd thought it would be :)

Anyway the picture is the other thing I did today, finally got round to getting some photos framed and hanging them so the house now has some evidence I actually live there. At the front is my niece Jennifer, then behind her is her Mum (my sister, Nicola) and my Grandma, then behind them are me and my mum, and right at the back (from left to right) is my older brother Neil, my Grandpa, my Dad, my Brother-in-LAw Ron (my sisters husband) and my identical twin brother Edward (although we don't look too similar in this photo).

Me and my camera

Another pretty boring day at work, not much happens here during the summer. Although it was a hard day for my colleague (there's only the two of us in the office), while at work she was told her boyfriends grandfather (who she was quite close to) had died. Even though they knew it was coming, she was still really upset. I tried to comfort her, but I don't know if I helped at all, i'm not very good with people when they're upset.

Doors are Dangerous!!!

Another pretty boring day really, nothing particularly out of the ordinary happened. But I had lunch with a good mate of mine who is temporarily working in the same place as me so it was good to hear what he's been up to. Then in the afternoon I got some good news from my boss - he's probably going to be sending me to Brussels for a conference in September!!!

Had a really good day todya. Work was usual but then after I went to the theatre with my housemate to see Avenue Q. This is perhaps the funniest thing I have seen on stage by far.

If you haven't seen it and you get the opportunity you've got to see it its hilarious!!!

simon, i have a question for you, sweet pickle. okay. i notice in your most recent self portrait that you wear a band on your left hand. i believe you're unmarried. you're sweet enough to mention your lovely wife, if you had one-- so i've ruled out marriage. my question is this: is your band a Promise ring? yanno. a pledge of abstinence

No not a wedding ring (im way too young!), and certainly not an abstinence ring (!) it was a present from my parents for my 21st birthday. They had them specially made for me and my brother.

Although I have to say I like Rick's suggestion of a pledge of indulgence :) Now that would be a pretty good ring

CIMG0276

Sort of intersting day, spent most of the morning with our visitors from across the pond, who seemed pretty friendly. Then spent most of the afternoon avoiding work!!! I'd heard of a new Warhol/Banksy exhibition opening in London today so I ended up finding out the gallery details and adding it to my plans for tomorrow.

I had to take todays picture a bit sneakily! Tecchnically photography is not allowed where I work, and in the older sections of the building you generally need permision to take photos. But I happened to have my small compact in my pocket so just whipped it out and took a quick snap
drab chicken [deleted] 11 years ago
it's incredibly clear and impressive for a quick snap. bravo!
Dragonhide 11 years ago
Trivia- in Spain they wear their wedding bands on their RIGHT hand. At least my all my married in-laws do anyway. Maybe they're just weird. It wouldn't be a big surprise either way.

maybe eelend can confirm if my in-laws are weird or they're ALL weird in Spain (running away giggling from eelend's sword) :) Sorry I'm bad. all in good fun, promise. :)


Simon- that movie poster makes me giggle... Looks like bunches of fun!
Simon-K 11 years ago
@glory - cheers. Forgot to say, what you can't see in the self portrait is that the ring has some special engravings that mark 1985 (the year I was born)

@jallen - I've never heard of anyone wearing a wedding ring on their right hand, definitely need eelends confirmation.

And the show is really fun even if you don't like musicals (like me), just look at the song names and you know its not a usual musical - "everyones a little bit racist", "the internet is for porn", "i'm not wearing underwear today" and "my girlfriend who lives in Canada" are just some of the funny songs.

Wonderful capture of the ferris wheel! Sorry I missed it the first comment around... I had your tab open in my browser long before you posted it. It's crisp. I had fun riding a ferris wheel last night with my kid.. :)
RobW_ PRO Posted 11 years ago. Edited by RobW_ (member) 11 years ago
Ahem, Jallen, that's not a "ferris wheel", that is the London Eye! Much photographed on Flickr. Taken from across the Thames at the Palace of Westminster, aka the Houses of Parliament, which makes it a pretty unique image. And it is good picture in its own right.

Talking about wedding rings: in Greece, rings are exchanged when you become engaged, and the custom is to wear it on the left hand while engaged, and then switch it to the right during the wedding ceremony. I believe it is worn on the right hand in many European countries.
Simon-K 11 years ago
@Jallen - the Eye moves round really slowly (think it takes half an hour to rotate) so you get to see some great views of the city

@Rob - You're right, its no ferris wheel! I actually worked at the London Eye for a few weeks the first time I lived in London. SOunds like a nice custome with the rings

Blind Light

Today was one of those days that reminds me just why I love living in London. I got up pretty early for a Saturday and headed for the Hayward Gallery to see an exhibit by one of my favourite artists Anthony Gormley. The picture is of the main part of the Blind Light exhibit which ends next week.

Although I nearly got myself thrown out the gallery for taking pictures :) Three different people told me to stop taking pictures and the last one got really angry (I probably shouldn't have been rude!). Anyway after the Hayward I walked up the South Bank, headed up towards Parliament and took some pictures of the guys cleaning Big Ben for Rob. Then I met up with the girl from last week and we had lunch in one of the many Royal parks of London.

After that it was on to another art gallery, this time to see a brand new exhibition (opened yesterday) of work by Andy Warhol and Banksy (a secretive British graffiti artist whose real identity is unknown) who are also two of my favourite artists. Again I had to be sneaky with my photos but I got a few shots and i'll upload them later.

A perfect day really!

Thanks Simon, for capturing the workers on the Great Tower clock (Big Ben is actually the name of the bell, I believe).

You are a daredevil, taking photos in forbidden places! And the girl from last week makes a shy reappearance..

No-one should miss a trip on the Eye, Jallen, on a clear day the views are phenomenal. Here's a picture of Simon's place of work taken from the Eye, and another one of Somerset House, where our daughter Natasha works.
Simon-K 11 years ago
@jallen - You should definitely visit the UK, there's so much to see, and not just in London. But the Eye is fantastic, as Rob said on a good day the views are phenomenal. There's no where else in thecity you get that sort of view.

@InterArts - Cheers, NYC would be a great city to live

@Rob - You're right about Big Ben, most people assume thats the name of the tower but thats actually just called the Clock Tower. Somerset must be a pretty good place to work (an 18th century palace after all) what does your daughter do there??
RobW_ PRO Posted 11 years ago. Edited by RobW_ (member) 11 years ago
Coordinator of group tours. Pop in and ask for her some time (a lot of the security people are South Africans, and they all know her). The terrace overlooking the Thames is a wonderful place for lunch on a sunny day, easy walking distance for you.

The current exhibition in the Hermitage Rooms is interesting, the art and furniture collection of the Empress Josephine, which was purchased by the Tsar when she and Napoleon fell on hard times. Of course the Courtauld Collection of Impressionists and Old Masters should not be missed either.

Banksy CCTV

Not a bad day at work today, mainly because my boss decided not to come into the office today :) Managed to get some art in today as well. During my lunch break I had to go to the bank so I went via Marble Arch where I'd been told there was a piece by Banksy (see the 11th entry). Problem was I could'nt find it, mainly because the tube station has 13 exits and I had no idea which one it was at! But I found it just before I had to head back to work.

Stating the bloody obvious!!!

My day was going pretty well until it was time to leave work. My boss had told us we could leave a bit early (only 15 minutes, but who cares!). I decided to go home via a particular store because I needed to buy some storage stuff. Anyway I picked up what I wanted to buy and went to the counter to pay. When it was my turn to pay I handed over my debit card and after a couple of minutes the woman looked at me as if i'd committed a crime or something and told me the bank had declined my card. I asked her to try it again because there was definitely money on the card, but she said (quite loudly) that the bank had instructed them not to accept my card!!! What made it worse was there was a long cue behind me. So I then call the bank spend ages going through their automated phone system only to be told they've closed!! I gave up and headed home, but instead of taking half and horas usual it took nearly two hours - stupid london underground.

Parliament Square Eviction

Bit lucky with my picture today. As I left work today the police were in the middle of evicting a bunch of anti-war protestors from Parliament Square. Some of them have been camping there for years, so it was quite a big thing. However the guy in the Bliar/Iraq t-shirt is exempt, so he'll be there by himself. The government has tried to move him loads of times but he keeps going to court and winning, so today the local council removed everyone but him!

Old P&O Tower

Well summer is officially over in the UK!! Its been raining most of today so most of my day has been spent indoors. But first thing this morning I went into London to visit the Press Photographer of the Year exhibition. Some really great moving shots there, well worth the visit. I then headed to the financial part of the city to take some photos of the Lloyds Building and the Gherkin building. While there I found this odd building which is being demolished, but unlike normal buildings is being demolished from the ground up!

Then the rain started so I headed home and did loads of jobs that i've been putting off for a while, so even though it was a pretty boring day I got a lot done.

Darwin Awards are awards posthumously given after someone does something really really dumb to bring on their demise. Darwin is -Charles Darwin- the survival of the fittest guy.

The humor is probably not up everybody's alley... But it is up mine, since I live amongst so many dumb hillbilly rednecks who seem to make it their life goal to earn the said award. :-)

My housemate had a bit of an urge to do some baking, so in the afternoon we made some cookies. They turned out pretty well and tasted really nice. To be honest going on my track record of making cookies I'm just glad I didn't burn them!
