A non-Londoners' lament.

There's nothing to get huf about.
These people asked me to take a photo of them with their camera. And seconds later I realized they wanted a photo in front of this sleeping homeless guy because it was funny to them. They actually called him names. My faith in humanity keeps taking serious hits. I'm at the tipping point of pessimism.

Stupid Girls.Good you draw a line there.Pictures like these, the girls wanted, allways remind me of Bob Geldoffs verbalization "Pornography of poverty".
We got the Big Ben, the Tower Bridge, me puking and posing on some native bum..How is your stand with photography like typical WorldPressPhotos for example.Did you vever felt like, that photo will be such a cliche, that I´m in an innerfight to take it?

Additional: When you shoot a cute girl in the streets, it doesn´t feel like your taking her beauty, but everytime I see a homeless guy or porr people struggeling on the streets and I want to take a picture and the guys look at me and I at him and it almost feels like I´m taking his dignity.

See, I like pictures of homeless people, not because of what I said pornography but because these people seem more interessting, their faces tell the stories of their life and their not connencted to fashion, like a cute girl in a cute dress looking good on a photo, these people are more dressed up in a survival gear according to their situation and that is what it makes more interessting to me.
The Authenticity.
But again, I sometimes just feel like a dick.
How do you deal with that?

Speaking of faith in humanity, while on the bus yesterday I was looking at a car in traffic. What caught my eye was a little Chihuahua looking dog sitting on the back of the car. The car sped up and I continued to look at the car, and there was this kid with a buzzed cut head, a dirty face with some cuts, and very blue eyes. He gave me a hard stare then the car kept speeding up. Second later the Bus Driver said "Hey, this kid flipped me off!" then he continued and then said "Well,if that doesn't give you faith in the future of Humanity." and "If that was my kid, he'd be on the side of the road with me spanking his butt."

Is South Bank like an english Brooklyn Banks?

duz grnt lyk 2 txt?
tll him 2 hit me up lets sk8

What I admire about some homeless people, being homeless is in a sense a big "Fuck You" to the rest of us. Then again,worrying day to day how you're going to survive and on top of that being lonely(maybe,unless you have some sort of group) would suck.

War is Over? not as long as people exist.
Anyway, I saw this guy with a patch on his denim jacket yesterday. it read "FUCK WAR". To powerful words put together, supposed to shock us or something, pretty Punk Rock,dude. Now if you switch the words, it makes "WAR FUCK" which I guess would be like an extreme version of Sex.

Love that war and truth quote.

I have a big nose, so I've thought what would happen if I tried to use it to penetrate a woman. I'll tell you guys the results as soon as I get comfortable enough with someone to do that. What's fun to do is get a straw, put it in her vagina, then blow. It makes like an infinite Queef.
