My Four Greens

Green spaces in cities are sites of glorious exhales.
Of staring out at expanses of green.
Of relaxed eyes.
Of escaping anxious cycles of thought.

Ghost Playgrounds

“If you wander around Bretton, Peterborough for long enough you will eventually start to notice concrete grey patches, voids, dotted around the terrain, amidst the residential housing: these are Bretton’s ghost playgrounds.”

Wander With

Texture. Smell. The world above, the world below. Light and shadow. Detail. Scale. Benches. Street Art. Shop Frontages. Signage.

Jaywick

Stories around place are slippery.
You pick a start and end point, key coordinates, omitting others along the way, to create a story.
Those with power get to set those stories, more often that not.
Those with reach.
