Restless feet and the urge to muck around with Tatershop are responsible for this entry.

I like that last one. Did you desaturate some of the colour, or did it just turn out that way?

I desaturated most of the colors, yes. I also tweaked the hue on the remaining ones.

It's a good effect.

I find the urban decay thing repellant but oddly attractive.

I would watch that comm more regularly, but there are way too many posts per day for me. It's a bit like slashdot. Much too unfiltered.

I created a friends filter for photographic communities recently, so that I can view them when I have the time and bandwidth.

That's a good idea. I see you have 5 or 6 on your list. Which are your favorites?

Probably texture at the moment. I like futurecity too, for the focus on urban architecture in general and not just the decayed and derelict.

I'm still experimenting with the filter, adding photo coms for awhile and seeing whether or not I like them over time. My image filter is public, so anyone can view it (although it defaults to my journal style).

I find it amazing that it happens so quickly. It seems like you can't leave a building alone for five minutes in this town without somebody peeing/puking/drawing on it, or stealing whatever bits aren't nailed down.

I will do that as soon as possible, which may be when we don't have house guests, which won't be until after the first week in August.

I love the second one with the train. Reminds me of an uber-cool coffee table book I used to own (and love) about urban landscapes.

That's my favorite too. (Also, I admit to manipulating the "No Entry" sign so it would show up in color.)

Re: we are here

Hey guys, I realize this may be a futile effort, but I can't dial out right now to reach your hotel. Marco works really close to your hotel, so he's going to try and walk over later. I'll see if I can get down there, but I imagine the buses that are still running are massively overloaded right now. I may try to walk to the West End later today, if things calm down.

When I first saw these, I meant to comment. I came back today to make sure that I didn't neglect to say something with my current funky schedule and lo and behold... I had not commented.

I like all of them but I especially like the rubbish bin.

What reminded me, you ask? I got your letter yesterday, mentioning the bin. Odd that I got it yesterday. Somehow reassuring and difficult at the same time, if that makes any sense.

I'm glad you and yours are safe.

It feels like a million years since I wrote that letter. Hard to believe it was really only a week ago.

Thanks. We're doing our best to go about our business as normally, including making our weekly trip to the markets south of the river, for which we use the Underground.
