Some sound advice


I took this picture recently in an old recording studio in London, now converted into an indoor cycling/fitness facility. Current owners of the space have rescued one of those ancient audio editing machines – and I love them for it. I used Studers like this when, almost 20 years ago, [...]

The Italian Scooter


This was my favourite activity while in Italy. Watching the locals on their scooters. No, seriously. They do everything while driving: they smoke, chat on their mobiles and look after their dogs.
