February 2009

Saturday in Battersday (28 February 2009)

A trip to Battersea Park Road. Up seven flights of stairs each landing stinking of pee.... Into a little flat to look at some material for Sunday's International Womens day gig. It's not the colour I ordered but I'm sure...

Waterloo sunset. (27 February 2009)

Snow bound ( 3 February 2009)
