a colorful week

Upon reflection

garden reflections

it was an incredibly colorful week

red leaves

which you'd expect when you hang with gardeners

mass and flowers

fuchsia and drops

but i was thinking more of this

bag of roots

and this

the garbage monster

but even there you'll see some fantastic things

a marriage of green bottles

heron amongst garbage

merely getting around was colorful

til i bus

and often painterly

battersea and monet

there were some blues Miles Davis could have worked with

blue drops and pot

blue swirl

and some blues that were yellow (don't wanna know why)

yellow blue pool

some yellow quite mellow


But often the most colorful moments were those with the bugs

rosemary beetle

like this extremely green thing

green bug on brown shirt

or this huge one -who had an orange mouth, which i slightly envy

stag beetle

but as is often the case, red-hot red was hottest

but it can actually be surprisingly colorful

All the Queen's Ravens

Finally got to see this band live

all the queen's ravens 5

They're called All the Queen's Ravens, fronted by the fantastic Charlie and Laura

charlie and laura of all the queen's ravens bw

with the awesome Luke on guitar

and a really strong drum'n'bass section

Normally they have a bigger line-up and play amplified, so it's a real testament to their rock-your-socks-off abilities that the songs were strong as ever unplugged and bare. Here's an example of the band in full swing

a bit rainy

They say London can get a bit rainy

a bit rainy

but that's not necessarily a bad thing

may movements

It was a nice day for a drive, be it in something fancy-ish

mercedes slk overtaking

or a bit less so

lada on the move
(check out the gorgeous white-cheeked rear tyre)

be it leisurely

or professionally


but no matter how nice of a drive it was, nothing beats flying

q-day in t-town

Yesterday was Queen's day in Holland, which officially is the birthday of our Queen's late mother, but actually an excuse to go out and drink

q-day in t-town

Since our queen comes from the House of Oranje-Nassau, it is traditional to wear orange while getting drunk

3 ingrids

tongue and lips

though other colors get served too


and some just wear white

drum band marching

and a badass drumkit

X marks the drummer

in spirit it's all orange

q-day dj
