I was in Brixton today and met Australian artist James Cochran, aka Jimmy C, working on his David Bowie portrait in 3D. From a distance it looked pretty amazing but up close signature aerosol pointillist style is even more impressive. The portrait is on the side wall of Morleys in Tunstall Road, just a few roads away from where he was born in Stansfield Road.

These images were taken on my iPhone, at this point he has spent two days so it is still a work in progress. Hopefully I’ll get a chance to take my big camera and see the finished piece.

I’ve always been a big graffiti art fan so it’s got me wondering how I might convince clients to pop over to South London for an urban photo shoot icon smile David Bowie Graffiti Art | James Cochran | Brixton

Yesterday I unexpectedly was fortunate enough to visit the Olympic Park.

Despite the two heavy downpours I had a fantastic time visiting the Olympic Park on Day 9 of the 2012 London Olympics (lucky the rather attractive plastic poncho kept me and my camera bag mostly dry).

I did not have tickets to any of the events but spent time at Park Live (the Olympics version of Wimbledon’s Henman Hill) watching live events on the huge screen in the River Lea and walking the park. When I say walking it was more like hiking miles around the 500 acre park with a fairly heavy camera bag !

You hear people say that an atmosphere was electric quite often but I can honestly say I have never experienced anything like it, lots of jovial, happy smiley people wearing their nations colours even in the rain. I was in the megastore doing a little Team GB retail therapy when they announced that Andy Murray had won the gold – the massive shop exploded with cheers & then Queen’s we are the champions was played and almost everyone was singing & clapping, amazing and weirdly emotional at the same time.

I am so glad I got to spend a few hours soaking up the experience and actually asked a Games Maker to take a picture of me.

I, like most have been caught up in the frenzy that is London 2012, glued to the TV (sadly no event tickets) watching the amazing athletes step up to the challenge.
