Photo of the day – 14yr old trainers.

By | Photos, Via Phone | No Comments

So these are the soles of my oldest pair of trainers. They are fourteen years old. They are kickers (you can see the red and green lines). They are awesome. They’ve become my cycling shoes now as they have holes in and look beyond shabby however! They don’t smell. They never have. They’ve been incredible really. They never smelt bad, were cheap(on offer for £25), have always been super comfy and have not fallen apart for 14 years. Possible the best pair of trainers ever.

A Foggy Twickenham Morning

By | Video | No Comments

It was an incredibly beautiful morning this morning. As I was driving down past Twickenham i glanced over at the river and i saw how beautiful it was. The sun was just barley breaking through the clouds and there was a think mist over the river.

I parked up and jumped out with my GF1 and my Gorillapod and shot this.

Loving my camera.

Photo of the Day & Info overload

By | Favs, God, Photos, Profound | No Comments

So this weekend has been a great and wonderful one. When i got home on Friday eve i was feeling really stressed out after a bit of a difficult week. I really needed to have some time to relax and recharge. That has been achieved to a degree. We are still in real need of a full break. We have not had a proper break this year for just the two of us. Hopefully we’ll get something soon.

All this has had me feeling a lil wound-up generally but it was a friend who said something today. We were talking about the documentary series that has featured on BBC2  Recently called “The Big Silence“. This series has been looking in to the effects of our busy lives and it encouraged the participants to bring some silence in to their lives. This equated to some dramatic positive effects. The conversation we had earlier was also suggestive of the same sentiment. We fill our lives up with so much noise that it becomes difficult to relax, to be quiet, to hear from God.

So, this is where i ma. I need to cut some stuff out. My life is so full of stuff that i dont need. Now, I love my news feeds. They are a constant source of really great information and inspiration but the problem is that it is constant.

It needs to stop.

We all need to stop…..

Stop and listen.
