the superhero in me is tired

    Newer Older

    This is the image my workshopees created in today's Levitation Workshop in Manchester City Centre!

    Sophie (modelling) was an absolute star, and not only walked from my place to the location (Wood St, Deansgate) in full superhero outfit, but she stayed in multiple uncomfortable positions while we all got pictures we needed! She got 7 beeps and even the police stopped by to say hello.

    What with all the horrible rioting going round the UK, and Manchester itself (a Sainsburys next to this spot was smashed in), I think a lot of people recently have been wanting a superhero to show. I was scared silly watching thugs walk past my apartment on Tuesday when it all kicked off, and even though you know the police are taking care of it as much as they can, I'm sure that everyone who was sat at home watching the news, seeing their city set on fire and destroyed, everyone's inner super hero was stirred. It was amazing to see the hundreds of people show to help clean up the next day, and in London also the images of the broom brigades were so awesome! So here's to all our inner superheros, who show up even when the real thing doesn't.

      That's a great image. BTW, what are these jerks rioting about? I assume it's the usual.Sorry to hear you're having to deal with vermin like that.

      wauw, this explains some days in my life so good. I always have the courage and energy to make a lot of things happen. But some days, when people expect the energy from me, im just tired.. The superhero is me is tired those days.

      Great shot and sentiment. Been a few years since the riots but they still resonate.
