The weather may be pretty erratic at the moment today in London but it wasn’t so long ago that it was gorgeous sunshine. When I went to see the Jurassic Kingdom exhibition I saw the wonderful trees, gorgeous Middle Lake and wide-open space within Osterley Park, so just had to take some photographs to share with you.
And how does it feel like to wake up in the sun?
And how does it feel like to shine on everyone?
How does it feel like to let forever be?
The opening lines of The Chemical Brothers song Let Forever Be from the album Surrender (1999). The video for the song has long been considered one of the best ever, and is a true representation of the creative talents of Michel Gondry.
You don’t need to be a superhero to get the girl. The right girl will bring out the hero in you.

I took these both on the same day when at Victoria Park by Bethnal Green. I couldn’t decide which one to pick, so decided to include them both.
Who doesn’t love dinosaurs? They’re huge, aggressive, have all kinds of varieties and once ruled the Earth. And being extinct, it’s not like you can see them at the local zoo. You can definitely say I’m a fan. I quoted the original film here, a review of the 2015 film here and a display of dinosaurs that helped promoted the movie here. I also photographed a dinosaur while playing golf here, not forgetting the teaser shot I put of Jurassic Kingdom here.
When you look in the sky, just try looking inside
God knows what you might find
Taken from the song Here Comes The Night Time by Arcade Fire from their fourth studio album Reflektor (2013). The album was a huge success and among other achievements topped the chart both sides of the Atlantic. I’m a huge fan of the Canadian artists and saw the Reflektor tour in 2014, which you can see a review of here.
When I went to the first time [the Edinburgh Festival Fringe] my pre-sales were one. I had one ticket sold. Which is quite depressing. Even more depressing when it was a buy one get one free deal. The one person couldn’t even find even find another person for free.

They used to tank cod from Alaska all the way to China. They’d keep them in vats in the ship. By the time the codfish reached China, the flesh was mush and tasteless. So this guy came up with the idea that if you put these cods in these big vats, put some catfish in with them and the catfish will keep the cod agile. And there are those people who are catfish in life.
The quote by Vince Pearce that gave the title to the documentary film Catfish (2010). Telling of an online romance that revealed some major secrets on one side, the film has since spawned a successful MTV series. Co-hosted by Nev Shulman, who was the star of the film, it is currently on its sixth series.
