I have been dashing about until today ………. so I finally had a bit of time to go through some of the bits and pieces I shot recently …… notably in Hawaii ………..( the images not related to the commissioned shoot) ……… Matt hadn’t even seen any of it either……… so I was editing it today as we chatted things through …….. and of course it puts me back in the mind set I was in while shooting ……… I was saying to Matt a main theme that constantly amazed me about Hawaii is the contrast between the drastic volcanic landscape and ordinary everyday life continuing on as you might find anywhere in America …….. schools and shops with a back drop of amazing seemingly vertical mountains just beyond …….. with the drastic looking skies and fast changing weather sometimes those mountains might appear black while I stood in beautiful pre storm sunlight …….. somehow the drastic beauty of the natural world just beyond and above seemed even more pronounced because of the often quite ordinary stuff of life below and all around me.

- Shame about the Brazil Germany result…even greatest shame that they had to massacre all those street kids just to make Sepp Blather feel a bit safer :-((

- It was terrible to watch …….. the shame of it seemed to become a physical weight pushing them down …….. the Germans just carried on with their efficient no prisoners game ……… all the passion and pride that is the Brazilian game was just meaningless in the face of the ultra efficiency and game plan of the Germans ……… there was so much opposition to FIFA’s world cup raping the ordinary people of Brazil it could almost have been carried away by the passion for football……. but now this……… not sure how it will go on from here…….. so sad to see …….. 🙁 still gotta hand it to Germany…….. maybe only Holland can stop them………..

- I never knew that great, talented humanitarian and generally clean living Sadie Frost went on your blog…wow you are so priveleiged to know Celebs!!

- “Sadie Liza Frost is an English actress, who currently runs fashion label Frost French and has designed the kitchens for a new development in the East End of London.”Cor blimey guvnor……. According to Google ……… You r right she is a mighty celeb…….
I get all sorts in the back of this blog mate. I once had Ghandi, he was big in the Pirates of the Caribean I believe. Ive had that General Galteri he was som kind of humanitarian I believe. Celebs they r always riding in the back of the blog. I had that Bazza J friend and photographer to the stars in the back only last week.
Jean Paul I am worried about this qwote I have seen from you:
If I became a philosopher, if I have so keenly sought this fame for which I’m still waiting, it’s all been to seduce women basically.

Michel Foucault! @ July 10, 2014, 12:01 pm
- The strategic adversary is fascism… the fascism in us all, in our heads and in our everyday behavior, the fascism that causes us to love power, to desire the very thing that dominates and exploits us.

- I was thinking only Holland can stop Germany ……. but it turns out Argentina get the chance to bring a little pride back to South America…….. but I have a feeling the Germans will be hardcore opposition to say the least …….. they have been in line for years…… I think they think…… with some justification……… this is their time :-/ 🙂 XXXXXXXXCheers bro Jez XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

- Yes he gave up living in ancient Greece to practice the beautiful game in Brazil he then combined international stardom as a footballer and continued to get a bit of recognition as a philosopher too:”All men’s souls are immortal, but the souls of the righteous are immortal and divine especially the soul of George Best.”
