I want to shove this in peoples faces why is it so hard to understand

It isn’t hard to understand, it’s just that the point made is too easy to ignore….
Governments will turn a blind eye to almost any situation where the oppressor is oppressing a country in which they have no financial or cultural affinities.  However, as soon as there’s a potential oil supply issue (Kuwait, Iraq, Ukraine, etc….) then there’s international outrage and military action “on humanitarian grounds”.

London - East End Graffiti

A few views of what is regarded, according to viewer sensibilities, as art, graffiti, a mess, criminal damage….  Personally, I think there’s a bit of each of those descriptions in the various photographs. 

Shots taken in the streets immediately around Brick Lane. 

Cambridge
I visited Cambridge last weekend and was lucky enough to see this old street completely deserted.

London 08 August 2014

I took a day off yesterday and meandered my way from Waterloo back to the East End of London/.  These are a few of the sights I saw and decided to photograph.

Pin Mill, Suffolk, UK

A gloriously sunny and colourful day but I thought this little series would look better as a gold and blue split-tone.

If you get chance to visit Pin Mill, it’s recommended. Take a picnic and enjoy the wide-open views.
