I usually go to the gym three times a week. I only started going in June 2016 because I was training for a charity cycle ride. I knew that hayfever season was approaching, that it would stop me cycling for several months, and I needed to keep up a schedule. Braving the gym, an unknown environment for me, was my only option. I’ve been going ever since.
For various reasons I couldn’t fit it in today and so for the first time in a long time I got out on my bike and took my iPhone with me.
I’m updating A1, Square Mile and might use some of these images.
I had been thinking about the idea of ambivalence for A1 and had taken several images where the image was split in half. I’ve chatted the idea over with several people and they all ‘get it’ and like it in terms of it communicating that idea.
I suppose what really attracts me here is the colours, but also the slightly damp, cool feeling of being underneath this bridge. The air feels fresher here and there is a sense of nature, very gradually, taking over.
I also really quite like the graffiti. I know some people think it’s ugly, and sometimes it is, but in the context I find it refreshing. I know there are young people here too; they have left their mark and I like that.
