here was the view from my little hotel in london town on wednesday night. it looked behind a set of terrace houses near paddington station
i thought it was really interesting to see what happens over the back of these buildings which are enclosed all along the street (two rows of terrace houses back to back with buildings along each end as well)
and here it is at night (from my window)
those who track my twitter feed will know that i ended up presenting an award at an industry awards show on Wednesday night. carol thatcher was the compÃ¨re (her mum is mrs thatch) and we briefly discussed the volume of the music that was playing when winners were announced. luckily that stopped my inadvertent boogie !
Monday was a sad day at work as some of the old team gathered to say good bye to a piece of equipment which had served us well for almost exactly 10 years.
harry kicked off the proceedings by disconnecting his leechy computer thing from the big computery thing (stop me if i’m getting too technical)
people generally don’t say goodbye to equipment in these modern days, preferring just to buy the latest newer or more exciting thing, so it was refreshing to be able to say goodbye like this.
this wasn’t part of the proper switchoff procedure, but it was great to see a switch with a little plastic protective covering, so was worth a press anyway
i guess part of the reason for saying goodbye to this piece of equipment was just how big it was. you can’t just walk away from something the size of a ground floor of a building. your iphones/pods etc can’t compete with that for size
there were some excellent retro computer type things about to look at whilst the procedure to suck the life out of it continued
those who have been reading the blog since it started will remember peter, john, walter and harry from when the blog was more spontaneous and even updated in real time. feels like an age ago. because it was.
