This is a list of films I am currently queuing to watch.
I love films but I find myself more drawn to entertainment with a humanistic story to tell. I enjoy character development, plot, good acting and photography in a film. I find myself hardly interested in films about comic book heroes or the latest sci-fi Armageddon films, although there are a few exceptions to that. Some of my favourite male actors are Paul Newman and Guy Pearce. Both from different era's but both excellent actor's who manage to play male roles with emotion and sensitivity, not just muscles and chiselled looks! I think if you ask a man who his favourite male actor is, it will reveal a little about the man and how he feels about himself.
Below is an image of mine. This is a photo of a painting which I painted although the painting is of only one face, not the two you see in this image. It is a self portrait which I painted in black and white acrylic paint onto hardboard. I then photographed it using ICM technique (intentional camera movement) during the exposure. It gave this nice ghostly double exposure look. I love doing things like this, playing around with materials or techniques to create something unique.
Musicwise I like things like Echo and the Bunnymen, Jesus and mary chain, Suede, Bowie and more recently Le Butcherettes.
I also brew my own beer but enjoy going to pubs to sample the many different kinds of beer available out there, especially after a nice walk in the countryside or visiting villages and cities around here.
Here is a photo of me in London, mooching around with my camera on the southbank. I am the guy in the long coat ;)
This is where I live now, not in the castle, but in Rochester. That is Rochester Castle and it is a short walk from my place so i photography it and the river beside it, often.
And voila, I think that is enough for now. If you want to find out more and be friends then just add me,
