Yesterday's New Quintet

Yesterday's New Quintet:

Joe McDuphrey
Ahmad Miller
Monk Hughes
Malik Flavors
Otis Jackson

The album 'Angles without edges' is one of my all time favourites. Produced by Madlib under Stones Throw records. Its a jazzy, cool, soulful feel. Hard to put into words. You just have to listen.

Love it. Now I have to get all their individual releases

I came across Xenya on etsy, this shop is that of Julie Shiel's. In particular I like her photography of abandoned, found spaces. I share this interest in old and weathered buildings and spaces. I enjoy the way they seem to tell a story of a past life and whisper memories.

Julie's work is particulalry rich in textures and colours and are right up my street! Here is a quote about her work.

My photos are often taken in abandoned or forgotten urban settings and I hope give you a glimpse of things few people see. I believe old buildings have a soul of sorts, and my hope is to record a piece of that soul before these places are demolished for strip malls or developments.

As an architect I do get to see a lot of buildings in various stages of disrepair and they are indeed very interesting. There is, as Julie says, forgotten beauty in these spaces and places.

Do visit Julie's store www.xenya.etsy.com
