is one of my favourite photographers. At the age of 65, when most people are thinking of retirement, Garcin gave up his lamp manufacturing business in Marseille and became a photographer.
Garcin's images are self portraits featuring himself, usually in a grey overcoat to represent the everyman and sometimes his wife. They're beautifully graphic, surreal and a little crazy - I love them!

I stumbled across Free Vintage Posters
today and what a great resource it is. Packed full of, well you guessed it - vintage posters!
They're not 'free' to use, only to download as they don't own the copyrights to the posters or the images but none-the-less I think it's worth a bookmark. Enjoy...Via Notcot.
Today is World Book Day
so I thought I'd share with you my all time favourite book, Gerald Durrell's My Family and Other Animals
First published in 1956, it follows the life of a young Durrell when he & his family moved to Corfu (1934 - 39) - something he describes as, "like living in one of the more flamboyant and slapstick comic operas"
Packed with anecdotes of his eccentric family, his pets, the wildlife on the island and the characters he encounters along the way, it starts with a wonderful quote:"There is a pleasure sureIn being mad, which none but madmen know."DRYDEN, The Spanish Friar, II, i
Eyebombing, Humanizing the world, one googly eye at a time - what could be more fun?!
Googly eyes on inanimate objects always amuses me, it reminds me of wet camping holidays as a child. My sisters and I used to glue googly eyes onto shells to make little creatures - the hours used to fly by!
The idea of Eyebombing
was created by 2 danes. It's "the act of setting googly eyes on inanimate things in the public space. Ultimately the goal is to humanize the streets, and bring sunshine to people passing by".
1. Only images of inanimate objects with wiggle eyes - NOT stickers.
2. Only images taken in the public space.

Auto Type XXVIX - we had a wonderful morning at yesterday's Goodwood Breakfast Club. It was the first of the year and the Pre-73 theme meant a vast turn out of quality motors from hotrods to historic racers - here are some of our favourite auto types.
