B193 – 24/7 THIS PLACE DOESN’T STOP

The city of New York is like nothing I have ever experienced before, its never been somewhere thats top of my list and Ive always been pretty chilled out about coming here. but oh my god, this place is like a big fun fair for people who love cities. One of my major things about a city is for those societies that will happily bend the rules sightly to get what they need done, im not talking about shooting some one or robbing a bank, im talking about those little inconveniences that some cities are just scared to break. Like J walking, in places like Sydney if you J walk your a law breaker and should be dealt with appropriately, its really frowned apon, but in New York people love it, it makes crossing the road so much easier, cars dont even beep you, they just try not to run you over.

One of the first questions everyone asks themselve’s when they get to a new country or city is “Can I live here?” and most of the time its yes, you get caught up in the moment and just think you can, Ive done it but rarley have I thought about it deeply enough to think it could actually work. Like LA for instance, I love LA and would happily go there for long periods of time, but could I actually live there? probably not, its way too big and my body is in no shape to be flexing my guns on venice beach.

Where as New york is the extreme version of London and seem to have all the same idea’s, people like to create stuff and have a good time. I feel that new York is some where I could call home and would love to explore and get to now more about it. One thing is for sure though, I would need some ear plugs because this place is 24/7 and people seem to always be making noise.

I would love to go on about my pro’s and con’s for living in a different city or country but I have a 6:30am call time tomorrow and would love to get some sleep.

Heres my photos from today. Bon appetit.

B124 – It took foreverĀ 

Northumberland to London: 9 hours 30 minutes. this should not of taken this long, but because of one phone call our day got a lot longer. while stopping at a service station somewhere near Sheffeild, we were asked to go to Norfolk and shoot some more sequences last minute. So pedal to the metal and we are now driving over to Norfolk, only to get there and for it to be canned. but lucky we stopped near a McDonalds, which made the whole de-tour, I have to say it was probably the best Mcflurry Ive ever had.

Back in London now and on my way to work. I definitely think I should of been brought up on a farm somewhere with a quad bike and a dog called Boris. but London’s good for now and having phone signal is definitely a plus.
