On cholesterol, zibaldone and staying active...

A cholesterol reading of 6.1 which is a bit high so I am going to have to eat a bit more of this sort of thing: 

This weekend, a bank holiday weekend, here:


Hopefully not too much time spent wearing these: 

I've spent a little bit of time with these things already, but more would be good: 

With the above, I make the Zibaldone I have mentioned previously. Below is the last one I "finished" (though they are never really finished as such) - as you can see, it is in the form of a sketchbook that uses a folded concertina effect which, when I opened it out for the first time properly yesterday, I loved: 

So anyway, onward. Here's a few other recent efforts - more later no doubt:

On Photography

"Ultimately, photography is subversive not when it frightens, repels or even stigmatises, but when it is pensive, when it thinks."
Roland Barthes

I think this is true of a certain type of photography, mainly in the news / editorial arena. There are other types out there.

Waltercio Caldas - mashup

Why?
1. Hands / Sculpture - an obvious mix.
2. B&W because: simplicity.
3. Movement but without the didacticism of video.
4. A pleasing arrangement.
5. Space on the left to allow for more movement.
6. The cube is beautiful.
7. Light.

Whilst making this, I listened to this on repeat:
