I got fed up of posts on my facebook wall, so I thought I'd close my facebook account and get back to my blogging roots so I set this site up to receive REAL post. From REAL people. Any post sent to me will be put up here and photographed every day until new mail comes in. Don't forget to click on each photo to go through to it's flickr page where you will find full annotations.

New post in from my mate Amber, containing loads of bits and pieces from her recent trip to India all "bought from a kid outside the tomb of Tipu Sultan", which sounds pretty cool to me. The package arrived today sent from Brighton yesterday and contains bookmarks, a keyring and some blank postcards.
In my opinion my REAL wall is not a place but a state of mind, and the whole philosophy of it is to interact with REAL people in REAL space again so, as a load of friends were round the package from Amber became a huge talking point and culminated in a social photoshoot for tonight.
Samurai slash gash grows larger and bleeds some mail art all over my underwear, and in response to the mail from botheyesclosed, clouds start gathering for the first of 40 days...
This shot has a profile pic in it of me illuminated in the bath and the lettering is done in light. I like the eerie effect of this particular take, although I done 3 shots tonight, so take a look at flickr to see the other results for yourself and decide which is best.
The shot was done in a completely darkened bathroom by selectively illuminating parts of the scene featuring REAL post using an LED pocket torch and a standard AA maglite, shone through a carboard tube to minimise halo.
The writing was done in the air using the LED torch
This was the second of the 3 takes done tonight and the whole shoot took about 2 hours, finished at 4:30am.
A really quick and easy status update today, in my room in Romania. I am staying with my Romanian family here and just wanted to keep it simple. Catalina is in my friends list as a REAL friend and one of the ideas of the REAL wall is to use it to show that REAL social networking is supposed to bring you closer to your friends.
So here we are, together in Romania and updating my status. The Cat in the mirror represents Catalina and my profile pic is me in the mirror.
No letters today as I'm in another country.
Minimal styling with colour strips, profile pic and the aeroplanes I was sent by Neil as focal point. Letters to the side from Neil and Jen, with peg from High Heel Girl, showing archives at the bottom and a desperate need to put the laundry on again...
These are part of a huge collection of photos I've been given to scan that belong to one longstanding of Yaa Asantewaa Carnival arts group. These photos date back to at least the 1990s and in this gallery they show when Yaa was used as a gallery for up and coming and established artists.
I've never met Kelo Roger or Glen Ford John.

At work I was asked to present a poster showing "My Learning Journey" that resulted in me ending up in the job I was in. We could present this in any way we wanted, so I drew a poster.
As my job is in e-learning, much of my work overlaps with my spare-time wasting hobbies. I mean at work I have to use blogs and forums, and at home I use blogs and forums. At work I do various projects with flickr, and at home I take lots of photos and put them on flickr.
So, it was really only a matter of time before my REAL wall had to come into work, and here it is.
The professional edition has document filing capabilities but none of those silly applications you mess about with in the home edition.
This image, complete with annotations etc, is also linked as part of my professional portfolio.
The Fishing application is taking over my wall and completely swamping the wall posts. It seems that by accepting that fish from Neil has had ultimately detrimental effects.
Single status update, notification of new gallery and change of profile pic among other things.
