  • Nice photographs.

    I once went to see Saint Mary Woolnoth because it is mentioned in The Waste Land.

    To where Saint Mary Woolnoth kept the hours
    With a dead sound on the final stroke of nine.

    Some years later I passed it several times coming from Lloyds Register.

    • Saint Mary Woolnoth [...] is mentioned in The Waste Land

      THANK YOU! I was sure that it was mentioned in a poem I knew, but I couldn't remember which one. I was convinced it was Tennyson so I was looking for it there.

      I'd never have thought of looking in Eliot.

  • But next time you do that walk loaded with black and white film, take along a deep red filter to help darken the skys and bring out some cloud detail. Only catch is it'll knock about two stops of your exposure times, so take a tripod too. (And if you're going to be walking it'd probably be a good idea to borrow a carbon fibre 'pod).

    I particularly liked the 'reflection' one. If only I still had my Wista I'd be tempted to go and get a 5x4 version of that image...

    As my wife is reading Alan Moore and Eddie Campbell comic book From Hell, (I plan to read it too), I made a google search on "hawksmoor churches london ripper" and guess what ?? it points me to your journal. No matter what I try to find on the web, I always seem to go back to Perl those days.
