Well here I am sitting under a tree in the park just about to start reading war and peace on my iPhone. I thought I make my first ebook a challenge. Stanza is a great app and very useable.

View Article  Acting is a hard profession
Part of me thinks, where were the Assistants who do the crowd control and did the director even tell the authorities that they were filming in the area??...Of course not, probably another production on the cheap thinking they can get away with it,

The director of an Angolan crime film says police have shot dead two of his actors after mistaking them for real armed robbers.

The duo were carrying unloaded firearms as they filmed a scene in a rough suburb of the capital Luanda, director Radical Ribeiro told AFP news agency.

He said police roared up to the set and began shooting at close range.

Angolan officials have not commented on the incident. Mr Ribeiro says he had permission to film in the area.

Mr Ribeiro told AFP that police arrived at the scene in a pick-up truck and "started shooting at everybody at close range".

He was "stunned" when he saw the two actors fall down, he added.

"They went on shooting until I shouted out: 'Please don't shoot, this is a movie.'"

The officers then stopped firing and left without attending to the wounded, who were taken to hospital, Mr Ribeiro said.

View Article  Some one really doesn't like Billie Piper
Well it seem they decided to put up a poster of a scantily clad Billie Piper in one of the most conservative neighborhoods in London. Someone seems to have taken offense to the poster and covered it in White Gloss. Some one really doesn't like billie piper

View Article  Strike Bah Humbug and Box junctions
Due to the tube strike yesterday I had to stay at a friends as it wasn't worth getting home and all the hassle that it was bound to be getting back to East London. So I got the No. 8 buses in this morning to work in Soho. Well that was until I got to Holborn and the traffic started to crawl and I mean crawl. I got off the bus and started walking and strolled a lot faster than any bus up to the top of New Oxford Street and this was the view that greeted me, it buses backed up all down the road. 

Buses tailed back in Holborn

It wasn't till I got to the top of the queue of buses there was about another 5 or six all lined up that I could see the cause of the monumental tailback all down New Oxford Street into Holborn which had held traffic up for about twenty minutes and what had made this massive queue of traffic. The picture below is what greeted me. Oh joy a inconsiderate flat bed truck driver from Stanmore Quality Surfacing. The driver had just pulled out over the box juncation and tried to bully his way in, turn on his flashing amber lights to try and get traffic to move, I think they better get their drivers to read up on they Highway Code and not inflict more misery of the general public while the system is already understrain from the tube strike. Thank for making me incredibly late for work I hope you had a great start to the day too.

150: Box junctions. These have criss-cross yellow lines painted on the road (see Other road markings section). You MUST NOT enter the box until your exit road or lane is clear. However, you may enter the box and wait when you want to turn right, and are only stopped from doing so by oncoming traffic, or by other vehicles waiting to turn right. At signalled roundabouts you MUST NOT enter the box unless you can cross over it completely without stopping.
Law TSRGD regs 10(1) & 29(2)

Why they was a tailback!!! On New Oxford Street

View Article  Memories
There is nothing like a photograph and nothing brings back memories than standing there seeing the place again,  While I was in Central Park, New York I popped down to the lake and tried to recreate one of my favorite photos. It was taken in 2002 when I was in New York with friends
Shadows for friends.

Its now 2007 and I've gone digital, over film and colour over black and white...i made it a mission to take the shot again.
