Hung Up

Whilst we as people can let most things pass we inevitably get hung up on certain stuff from time to time. Whether that stuff is big or small, personal or impersonal, whether it fell within the realms of our control or not people invariably have plenty of old burns, bad decisions, past regrets and missed… Continue reading Hung Up

Pompidou

Málaga, the southernmost large city in Europe, has undergone a spectacular urban regeneration across my three visits, managing to reinvent itself as an important stop on the European (perhaps even World) cultural map, packed with galleries and museums in addition to existing Roman and Moorish historic attractions.

Here, as the young man tries to assimilate… Continue reading Cubic Curiosity
