I live overlooking the canal near Camden, and if you follow the path east a few hundred metres to St Pancras Station, you pass this completely bizarre apartment block. Which always reminds me of shit holidays.

    They remind me of caravans, so I get where you’re coming from re shit holidays….having six brothers and two sisters meant we never went caravanning though….I guess there’s a lesson in that….

    can’t imagine wanting to live in an expensive caravan park…..

  • Yes, that’s sort of what I thought, although I have to say, I’ve never actually set foot in a caravan, I just have a feeling it’s not what I would enjoy.

    They’re like tents with less air movement, not ideal for the sub-tropics!

  • Is anything ideal for the sub-tropics?
    The Hilton?

    removed from its dull context, this actually looks rather fascinating! very well taken shot – you’ve really elevated the subject 8)

    I think I actually woke up in those apartments once after a white wine and tequila bender. Felt like I was in a bakelite toaster. Go the Holga.

    I can almost see Barbara Windsor hanging out of one of the windows…cackling..

  • She was there, now she is floating face down in the direction of Bristol with a dent roughly the shape of a toy camera in the side of her head.

    I find this image tremendously hopeful, and I`m not sure why.

    The canal looking a bit haggard, raw concrete barriers, and this beautifully futuristic set of apartments boldly lining up, unashamed.

  • They drained a bit between the two locks the other day, my word, the filth, the mopeds, trolleys, dead birds.
    And people swim in this you know. I mean kids do.

    How bizarre indeed. I wonder if they have awnings out the front.

  • Corr, if they didn’t I’d build one, that’d be great, and a deckchair.
