Appealing Apartmet

A year ago Dave and I stayed in an amazing apartment in Belgium. I came across the photos and had forgotten just how lovely it was. One day I'll have a place like this...

Casting nets

I had written this on the back of an envelope and was about to throw it away when I saw it. I have no idea where its from -

'He came over and sat on the sofa, his weight sent a tremor, the warmth and sweetness of his body began casting nets'

Lovely, huh?

new crush

My favorite film so far of this year...

Greta Gerwig is amazing & some bits were so bitter sweetly true that it made my heart hurt...

1960s photography

For a job I have been immersed for a few days in researching photographers that shot in colour in the 1960s...


I'm slowly discovering Dirk Bogarde after reading his autobiography, and the more I see the more I think he is amazing.
I have just watched his film Victim twice because it was so good. It's gone into my 10 ten favorites ever - beautifully shot, awesome London locations and the story is just so good, I can't believe it was made in 1961...

...the spring-time was falling off the trees

"There was no one in the streets, which were silent except for the soft sticky sound of their footsteps and the irregular tap-tap of water dripping from the trees. Wet leaves leaned down above their heads. A drop of water fell on to Annette's shoulder and ran down between her breasts. They walked through a square. The dripping sound, which at another time would have made Annette sad, seemed to her now the very voice of the spring. The air was soft and warm and the spring-time was falling off the trees and rolling in cool drops upon her skin. Then suddenly there was a clear distant sound, and then another - and then again the silence"
The Fight from the Enchanter - Iris Murdoch

What awesome heros

La caduta degli dei

The film was received as a masterpiece, and at the finale, as the lights came up in the vas audiorium, Fellini leapt from his seat in the stalls and facing us he saluted visconti with the great cry of 'Il maestro! Il maestro"
