South Kensington & Chelsea Derive

Last part of my recent London trilogy. You know the routine: click to enlarge.
And how fitting: I just finished reading Alan Moore & Dave Gibbons’ Watchmen, and now the question has returned… What’s there to do post-apocalypse?

TU Dortmund Psychogeography

My friend Feloris and I were stranded on TU Dortmund’s campus over the weekend. Everything was deserted, except for the wild rabbits that have tunneled under, well, everything, we think. Originally we set out to find a place that would sell us some coffee, but soon the dystopian atmosphere called for some psychogeographical documentation. These pictures are the result of our walk – and the inspiration for a collaborative Weird short story in progress. Please excuse the cellphone cam (my good camera is broken), but I honestly think that the cheaper lens rendered the clouds even more foreboding, etc.
(Warning: LOTS and LOTS of pictures.)
