I wish I could take photographs whilst cycling without having to stop and start every few minutes. Not only would this keep my popularity with fellow cyclists in the black but I sometimes I see colour combinations that inspire the greatest palettes in my mind only to lose them at the next set of traffic lights. 

These are a random selection of 'orphan images'; photographs that don't yet belong to any particular project or personal research. The last image - a collage if you will, reminds me of a particular Saturday afternoon in early Spring, which I spent cycling around East London with Lola B. We were returning from a brave attempt at a picnic in Victoria Park, and we cycled down Quilter Street (a charming little street located just behind Columbia Rd). On it are tens of Victorian workmen houses; identical except for a kaleidoscope of coloured front doors, giving each house it's very own character - fascinating that a shade of colour can do that, don't you think?

What do you think, aren't they lovely? This is only a tiny collection, but really, I'd love to live in one of those little houses. Do you have a little 'obsession'? Is there a particular thing in life that always seems to catch your eye?
