Kensington Park Road, Ladbroke Grove

I'm sitting outside of this "now" trendy cafe "kitchen & Pantry" and thinking about the time when my daughter was born, I was lucky enough to live just up the road back then.
This cafe was a shabby toy shop for a long time and I've bought my daughter's first toy from there...
And watching the shop across the road and thinking it was a shabby laundrette !
I used to go to this gallery called the photographer's place or long ago I can't remember the name any more just a few shop away from here.
I remember I was carrying my very young baby on my babycarrier and went to the photogragh exhibition of BOB MARLEY playing football and smoking big joints.
It was a part of "portobello art festival".
I really miss those times.
I came to london in late 80s and since then I've lived Ladbroke Grove area a lot...around Portobello market was like Amsterdam in London.
I always loved Portobello market, and back then it was somehow more free and open minded hippy like attitude and bohemian air around you can find nice shops's not the same, more commercial and not so much of the spirit.
But still I love this area like second birth place in London,
all my life in London started from there.


Breathless or a bout de souffle

A bout de souffle directed by Jean Luc Godard

    Jean Luc Godard was and is the person that influenced me the most about cinema.
 I love Anna Karina, Jean Seberg, Jean Paul Belmond, and Brigitte Bardot.  
 I love the time of "la nouvelle vague" films.

To me style is just the outside of content,and content the inside of style, like the outside and the inside of the human body. Both go together, they can't be separated. 
Jean Luc Godard

I used to wish and dream to live like that.

Patti Smith - Dream of life

Oh,Patti Smith!
Television, Lou Reed, Iggy Pop, 
The Doors, David Bowie,...etc.
All my teenager icons.
One time I've just lived with their songs. 
Life without music, unthinkable.

This is me. 

Last 19 years I almost avoided to take pictures of me.
Now I decided to start to take some photos of me before it's too late.
About the time ?
So I started with low key.
