Hop back in time

Giant Space Hopper from TJ and Clare - isn't it excellent? :-) (Polaroid effect from Lightroom and Poladroid).

Angels of Anarchy

I am a surreal poet! Or a bit of one, at least (see line 2 above). Manchester Art Galleries have an online collaborative surreal poem-writing project going at the moment as part of their exhibition Angels of Anarchy: Women and Surrealism.

Have a look at my poem complete with mark-ups of who wrote which line here or join in and collaborate on one of your own here.

Climbing the walls

Freya just before she fell off the bed while killing my jumper.

Halfway up the wall - there was a dangerous snake creature on it (the shadow of her tail - she is very disturbed by her tail and spends a lot of time chasing it and biting it, but it persists in following her round the house, undeterred...)

Doppelganger Gang

Last week Morag and I wandered along to the GoMA to see the latest exhibitions, which featured a couple of photos by and of potatojunkie. (You should go along if you're in the area as both newly featured exhibitions were very good (A Spot of b)other: LGBTI Deaf and Disabled Cultures and Amaju X: Familiar Strangers) and are on until next February.

Anyway, while we were there Stuart managed to take the following photo which I think explains why other folk see my various doppelgangers more often than I do: clearly they have taken to following me round in a line just out of eyeshot...

Rough Magic

My hand's a wee bit fuzzy here, but I like it better than most of the other shots. Though some had a certain Cyclopean charm...
