In Cardigan with a population of around 3 or 4 thousand we have three supermarkets, Tesco Aldi and Somerfield. Sainsburys have now been added to the mix and the new one is being built on the fields that surround our offices. For decades the fields have been used a place for dog walkers, conker collectors, sledge users, kids playing with balls ad bikes and not to mention the wildlife. Down by the stream that runs through the fields there are always Herons. Not anymore now these buggers are here. Work started a while back but these past few weeks have been heartbreakers as we've seen some beautiful hillside hedges get ripped to pieces. Then they started on the trees. Yesterday a few of the bigger ones got lopped and today an even older one got the chop which is in the blurry video above. How can this be progress when the land is taken away to profit their shareholders who dont even live here at the expense of a community who do. Jokers the lot of them.
Jon Heslop will be doing a proper blog about it soon, in full gory detailed destruction of the green fields that surround us.
The Carnaby crew mailed me this, it looks great, back a while i took the train from Osaka to Tokyo and dropped off at various points looking for Ryokans and a Buddhists sect called the Vajrayanas (not found as apparently they are mostly in Tibet) and i rode part of the route on my BMX bike as i wanted to check out the beautiful countryside. I rode nowhere near the 500 plus Kilometres this bunch did. Cant wait for the full release.[vimeo]http://vimeo.com/6771122[/vimeo]
It's been tough times for the Blueprint fellas of late, but put the past behind them they have done and just like the ever proverbial pheonix they have morphed into something (dare i say this) better. i cant post the clip so you'll have to click to watch it. I'm just so happy to see Shier, Jensen, Kennedy and the team giving it all here. Get ready to feel better than good.
In defence of street photography
Following a series of high profile detentions under s44 of the terrorism act including 7 armed police detaining an award winning architectural photographer in the City of London, the arrest of a press photographer covering campaigning santas at City Airport and the stop and search of a BBC photographer at St Pauls Cathedral and many others. PHNAT feels now is the time for a mass turnout of Photographers, professional and amateur to defend our rights and stop the abuse of the terror laws.

It is a low-cost eye-tracking apparatus & custom software that allows graffiti writers and artists with paralysis resulting from Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis to draw using only their eyes.
