35mm Relics from across London

Got back 3 rolls of film from around 3/4 years ago. I never usually leave them more than a month or two but it was pretty cool getting to see what sorts of things where interesting to me back then and what I was doing on a day to day basis. Seems from looking at them like I was definitely into the Crustier aspects of London which aren’t hard to find.

These are all colour so wont be able to use any when I eventually get around to making a Zine but i’m pretty happy with some of them. This camera is long gone unfortunately but really into the graininess of some of the shots.

Crust

Crusty aesthetic of London underground repetition.

Tube Commute

All smiles on the Underground

UKIP Scum

‘Don’t vote UKIP’ – Glad these idiots have disappeared and we don’t have to look at graffiti like this anymore.

Big Ben

Big Ben, a Union Jack, a tourist gift stall and a suited businessman on the phone on a wet and grey winters evening.

Cranes

Constant evolution.

Elephant

Elephant and Castle Crust.

Street Lights

Another wet and grey evening in Elephant and Castle, I really like the light leaks and silhouetts of passers by.

Isolation

DO NOT SIT NEXT TO ME I DON’T KNOW YOU!

Santa

Bossman on a rickshaw around Christmas dressed festively to get some extra punters and look ‘stylish’?

Car Bonnets

A road in Streatham where all the black car bonnets had been lifted for what seems like no reason. I like the bend of the houses and the classic style of architecture.

 

Max

Yup 2 boy?

Dan

Corr….

Cronos

Cronos always getting stuck in.

City Lights

Hazy lights shot through a bus window I believe.

Bar lights

The lights in the bar I used to work in before the dickhead manager cut my shifts and I eventually got fired. The best thing that’s ever happened to me was leaving that place and getting motivated to fix my life, the free tequila was fun while it lasted though and if you read this Chris your a nob head!

London – B&W – 35mm

I’m thinking of making a zine/ coffee table book of street photos from around London. Riding around you see some amazing characters and weird behaviour which can make for some pretty great viewing.

Had a bit of a halt recently due to a broken camera which has half a roll of film stuck in it. Hopefully the camera shop will be able to save this on payday.

I have a load saved back but here’s a few photos i’ve gotten on it before it broke, all shot B&W 35mm.

Hazy days

A man takes a rest on Stockwell Road hidden away in piles of junk outside an off-licence. 

Charlies Angels

A group of people going to a festival walking through a sketchy estate in Tottenham all dolled up not giving a shit.

The Cone

Never to old to play a cone like a trombone – Notting Hill Carnival.

 

 

Another Promo

Second full length video is going to Premiering at Brixton Cycles on March 3rd (will be online shortly after) so thought i’d make (another) little promo video to refresh people memory. Pretty happy with how it turned out, lots of crashes and having a go with some old school tape effects. The song is called BMX crash by Modest Mouse so felt natural to fill it with crashes.

Hope to see some people March 3rd to get right smashed and watch some BMX.

Poulet Sousi

Some film and digital photos from a trip to Lille last month. It was a really fun trip and my first with my BMX. Managed to film a load of good, eat shit loads of Donner Kebabs and drink many warm French beers. We met some rad locals out there. They were patient with our attempts at learning French and showed us some savage spots. commen ta pel Souli Sousi.

She heard the Dream Boys were in town.

 

Some digital photos below of people actually riding as well. Most the good stuff happened on street and that all got filmed for the upcoming video because street’s much more cool than skateparks so limited photos.

Is big cliff still big cliff?

Big cliff has been revamped and is still very big but kind of sloped and maybe more of a massive hill, naturally it is super hard and fun to ride as everything at The Spot is. Many a BMX stunt has been seen at the top near the bottom and on the floor just after. This one is a skate stunt though and a mighty fine one.

5-0

Got a new lense which is almost unbelievably better than my old standard lense. This is the first proper photo I have taken with it and also the first skating photo I have taken. Skating does look pretty.
