Anniversary trip: London, part 2

The finale of our journey rests in this post. Then it was back to USA for Thanksgiving (er, Black Friday,) Catalina in winter, and fashion shooting.

Crispy mornings along the Thames the sleepy Londoners take a slow start from the drunken night before. The town is ours with a few scant tourists and the busy bustler's getting the worm.

St. Paul's Cathedral before we realized there was an "Occupy" movement going on there.

When we got to St. Paul's there was a massive tent city happening.

Regardless of how much I agree with the various occupy protests, a wide array of leeches follow it for many reasons none of them being political idealism.

This B&W photo was shot at the same spot where I shot the color photo of St. Paul's cathedral above. That's me and Deanna standing in the orb.

SKATE!

Sadly they mean ice skate. Lot's of ice skating going down around London.

Nile Marr, spawn of guitarist Johnny Marr, approached me on Regent Street and stripped his coat off to show me the Transistor Sect shirt he was sporting! Now this is full circle coolness. Says he wears it every show he plays. (He's a rising musician in his own right.) Respect young man.

Swirly whirly through the city of ages...

This new trend of girls wearing just tights out with no skirt or pants has been great for men I suppose. A new way of being virtually naked in public, leaving almost nothing to the imagination. In one day back home here in Orange County I counted over 7 girls wearing only tights, one was see through, one was ripped in the crotch showing a wide patch of inner thigh flesh, and two were on women whose age and weight gave no indication that wearing nothing but a pair of tights would be a good idea or flattering at all. Only one was appropriate, used as "work out wear" by a girl playing beach volleyball. But you could still see her full underwear underneath. It worked for her though, because her body was fit and slender, the very ideal of what the multitudes in the gym are trying for. Anyway, we took a moment to watch the ice skating rink at the Natural History museum. The setting sun sliced through the cloud cover, slipped between the buildings, and shone a spotlight on the ice. The tights that a group of young girls was wearing proved less opaque than they had hoped. They never are! And Deanna and I could make out the color and patterns on these ice-skating panties circling around.

White with little flower polka dots. Tights are not pants! But keep doing it, we all love it.

LOST! Giant diamond ring. Big Reward. I don't think this was "art."

Each time we come this building (called The Shard, because it looks like a shard of glass,) gets a bit higher...

Our 20 year wedding anniversary, Trafalgar Square.

Our 20 year wedding anniversary, Piccadilly Circus.

An anniversary treat?

Off we go...

Leaving the UK for the USA.

From cold and grey, to warm and yellow/orange.

Coming into California as the sun we chased finally beat us and was rounding the horizon. From our height we got a delayed sunset, and a strongly shining star to guide us in.

The tin cannisters that hold latent images - since chemically processed. A few resulting frames can be seen in this very post. The B&W images seen here today were once inside one of these parcels of rolled celluloid.

You say it Bank-see?
or Bane-Skee?
I've been saying that shit wrong.

Leeches follow?
Is that your way of telling the homeless to leave?

Wow. He really does wear that shirt on his gigs. Insane. You went from a fan, then Johnny made a kid that's a fan of you. wowzers.
in that one link...we're the same age too.
Your blog has been blowing my fucking mind lately, goddamn Johnny Rotten and shit.
Viva Ed.

If you still followed my Instagrammzz. I posted a pic of a girl with a hungry buttcrack too.
Girls need pants.
But it would be somewhat erotic to just rip them shits off and go at it, you know. primal and shit.

Picadilly Circus. hmmm. I won't quote.

Evian Bottle makes a peen with those two round things

God. after having to develop my own shit. all those rolls must take days to go through.

I thought that about the evian too! Ed's putting subtle serendipitous hilariousness within the messages

they want you to rip them shits off. its their way of flauntin the goods, I guess

I wish you could have been there jGonz. Is S Van over commenting? I don't blame him. There are finer things in life to be doing than looking at my shriveled ass blog.
Posted By: ed on December 7th, 2011 at 09:22AM PST
Awww.No, I´m always here.
Only my fingers got numb from heavy masturbating to
keep me warm in my treehouse.It´s cold over here.

But yes, I´m busy living and rearranging things in life,
mainly job matters, don´t wanna bore you guys.
Everyday´s just another breath...

Oh and remember?
We were talking bout Richardson on Insta some while ago and you mentioned his book "Kibosh". I bought it. 50 €! Reduced Price.
Now how did that happen? Some weeks ago they sold it for 290€.
Amazon still sells it for 170€....

That cheap, I think I´ll also buy my parents a copy for xmas...

The leeches killed the Occupy movement for me. If only we could kill the leeches. Now how to speak to my partner about those tights.

PS I guess Life Extension is coming out of Blitz.

Just to clarify, I did not mean that Homeless are leeches. But that does not mean that a homeless person would not take advantage of a public camping movement and free food while not caring at all about the politics. And they should. I can only imaging survival on the streets, I would personally take any advantage possible. But there are also plenty of people who just want to start shit, and this is a perfect platform. I guess what I'm saying is I'm 100% for occupy wall street, and 90% anti hippies and all the attendant props.

ed, i thought i'd take this opportunity to tell you that the you/deanna pictures make my young heart ache for a partner who will love me and take nude photos of me.

I'm all for the Satori movement anyway

Ed I didn't think for one second that you ment the homeless were leeches. I was at Occupy Sydney and the weirdest leech was a guy holding up a sign fighting for higher wages for police. Law enforcement appropriating the Occupy moment for their own causes.

Lots of comments in here.

@Its good to be skinny, again- I don't think I've ever seen you comment until this post. WELCOME!

I used to live the bum life but by choice. I was working at Taco bell and living in a truck. I skated all the time and we would sleep in the skate park parking lot. I did that for about 3 months. It's all on youtube. My reasons for bumming it were out of depression and being lost, not knowing were my life was going. Plus I didn't wanna pay rent or bills.
