Happy New Year

The Road Ahead

It's that time again. The fireworks are popping off and so is 2006. I don't pretend to know what 2007 will bring to everyone but I sincerely hope its a smooth road ahead.

Maybe it will be a suprising year in which rich celebrities grow a conscience and begin not lending their name to companies using sweatshops and child labour? The end to unfulfilling conspicous consumption. As we all realise it can't fill the whole in us.

Maybe it will be the year people really do pay more than lip service to ethical and environmentaly sound behaviour? Getting our fat arses out of our Chelsea tractors and walking.

Maybe it will be the year we don't obsess about overpaid footballers vapid popstars? The year we recognise acheivement rather than empty fame for it's own sake?

Maybe it'll just stay the same and we can all go to hell in a handcart?

Please allow me to introduce myself
(a man of no wealth and dubious taste...)

I thought it was time I put myself out in the 'virtual' world such as it is. I have to confess I use blogs, from time to time, but just like Bill Clinton I've never inhaled. I thought it was time to just breath in and make a blog of my own.

So here I am, deeply cynical and as mad as Morrissey at a fox hunt. As this was a bit of an impulse and the ideas still half baked, only time will tell what I do with the blog. I can only assume it will contain the my musings on photography and the arts along with my rage against the general daily ineptitudes we all have to suffer. Sometimes I may even try to be intellectual and meaningful so that should give you a chuckle.

As a last warning take note of the sign. No swimming in the blog. This is for your own protection in case the the subtext pulls you down to my level.
