The Beginning is Near




This is my last design: The Beginning is Near. If the end is near, as the prophecies, Anonymous, and the beard guy in the corner said is near, well, a new beginning is near too... and personally I rather focus on that. For me 2012 hopefully is going to be a year full of changes and beginnings (fingers crossed).

If you like this tote bag, that's a very good news, and if you desperately want to buy one, is a better one and you can do it in my Etsy Shop clicking here.

Sundays




One thing I really love about Sundays is that you get to have an endless breakfast. At least I know I can and I do, like have some fruits really early in the morning with a cup of tea, and gradually during the day keep on having different breakfast dishes: pancakes, toasts, arepas, eggs, you name it... I love all kinds of breakfast food. As I write these lines I'm actually finishing my second breakfast :)

As a soundtrack of this Sunday I've been listening to Ruby and the Rib Cage. Ruby is a friend of some friends but I never have had the chance to hear her music until now. This morning I've discovered her Soundcloud and really like what I heard. Check it out, you can find three nice tunes for today :)

London according to my BB (I)














My temporary homes sweet homes and some scenes from the streets,
like Billy Elliot being hit by a taxi. That's London.

As soundtrack of this post a song that's been in my mind this whole week :)

Abney Park Cemetery







In Halloween mood, but in a country where there's no Halloween, I decided to post the expired fisheye photos I took in Abney Park Cemetery, a really nice place in Stoke Newington. Is more a park than a spooky place. It used to be one of the ‘magnificent seven’ garden cemeteries of London, now is a space surprisingly lovely, regardless of the fact that it is mainly a cemetery, that offers their visitors a wide range of activities, from workshops, a training center, an abandoned church and lot of quiet spots to read, run, make a picnic, a concert, an expo, a photoshoot or a movie.


Have a nice weekend everyone :)

Holga in Paris








I have a friend that used to say that the holidays are not over until the last photos are developed. Maybe that's one of the reasons why I keep taking film pictures.

This are some of the photos that Holguita, my friend Danielle and I took in Paris this summer. Hope you like them.

Tobacco Factory













Back in July when I was in Bristol I have the opportunity to visit a lovely Sunday Market in the Tobacco Factory in Raleigh Road. There was a lot fresh and delicious food as well as plants, books, vinyls, vintage clothes and super nice people willing to give you a taste of their lovely dishes.

We bought 'falapples' a delicious recipe created for Jabob that mixes, as you probably imagine, falafel and apples, we also tried the falafels with tomato and the hummus, everything was amazingly good. We got carried away and end up buying lots of cheese and chutneys (the onion marmalade was my favorite one) for sharing with friends and to finish our time in the market we shared a nice pie from the popular Pie Minister.


The Sunday Market has its own Facebook Page and the Tobbaco Factory, that also serves as a café and a venue for cultural events, is having soon a 10 Year Anniversary Celebration, you can see the details of the event here. So if you happen to be in Bristol don't miss any of this, you're in for a treat :)

Fish & Chips

Soho, Central London. June, 2011.


I've just received a mail from Society6 saying that one of my photos, the one above of course, is been promoted to appear in their shop. Even though I'm not sure on how this site works, these are definitely good news, so yay!

If I have to guess I would say that the charm of this photo is the look and smile of the gentleman that staring right at the camera, don't you think?

And well, since we're on it, if you want to see my recently created profile on Society6 please click here :)

RIP: A Remix Manifesto



Recommended by my friend Carola I started to see the documentary RIP: A Remix Manifesto, a very interesting exploration on the extents of intellectual property on the digital era, and on the music and style of Girl Talk, a mashup artist that I really enjoy. The documentary was made by Brett Gaylor and consistently can be watch for free on You Tube.


Whether you believe in Copyright or Copyleft or whatever I think is a very interest piece that you can definitely enjoy.

The documentary You Tube Channel is here. And Girl Talk's last album here. Go get'em!

PS. I finally saw Ray last night, and I loved the movie. If you haven't seen it already is another good film plan.

Foggy Sunday

 (Photo taken with my extremely low-res Blackberry camera, but you get the idea, don't you?)




This Sunday it's been absolutely weird. The volcanic ashes from the Chilean volcano Pehueye are back in the Buenos Aires' sky turning it into a foggy white shinny screen that makes everything looks pale. I went out for a tea and I felt like in the early minutes of a low-budget terror movie.

So I came back to the house where I've been working a little bit, listening to James Blake, reading a couple of good books and later I'm going to see Ray, I don't know why I never saw that movie, everybody said is really good. Let's see.

Hope you've enjoyed your weekend. Mine it's been quiet but good :)

Stokey on the sole of my shoes


1. Stoke Newington High Street.
2. Church Street. Shillelag, an Irish Pub.
3. Antique Store in... I'll say... Defoe Road.


This week I've been using my wellies a lot because it's been cold, grey and rainy around here... impossible not to think of London and specially on my favorite neighborhood the N16.

Today also happens to be Paul Simon's birthday, so lots of happiness to him, and to everyone. Enjoy the song he shared in his FB page.
