I remember as a kid always being interested in the scrawls on walls and what they said. As I got older, my horizons broadened and the graffiti of the suburbs gave way to the catchy iconography of the city street artists. It was a scene that felt like it was in the midst of growth …[Read More]

Man on the Street

Our placement on the great timeline of existence has us nestled in a rather peculiar spot. Columbus, Tasman, Magellan, De Gama – they’ve already done all the Earth exploring for us.

Swiss made luxury watches and smart watches seem like a world apart. One world draws on a history of handmade craftsmanship, legacy and a reverence of the past, the other is all about the latest bells and whistles.

As we all headed into lockdown earlier in the year, I’m sure a lot of us were kicking ourselves for not getting the tech stuff we needed to really get through the ordeal in style.

Bucket List Experiences
The recent passing of actor Ben Cross made me want to revisit the role which made his name; that of English sprinter Harold Abrahams in the seminal sports movie Chariots of Fire.
