Ben, A Logo, Wooden Crates And A Green Glow. St. Philip's Marsh, Bristol.

I haven't posted one for a while so here is another shot from my one and only paid job. Shot at the request of my mate Danny. The job was shot in two locations in Bristol for a company based in Kuwait. I have no idea how we came to be shooting it for them and as far as I can tell, neither does Danny. This is Ben, a super nice guy who was our model for the day, he has the wonderful job of not only looking pretty but having to carry this sheet of glass around all day bearing the logo of the company concerned. At the outset it didn't seem that heavy but we could really see it taking it's toll as the day progressed. As I said it was the first time I had done a job for hard cash and was very pleased with how it went. More importantly the client loved the shots as well, what more could you ask! For those with a love of maps then here is an aerial view of the Feeder Canal area of Bristol.

around the curve of a parrot bar
a broken-down old movie star
hustling an Easterner
bringing out the beast in him
a high dive on a swimming pool
filled with needles and with fools
the memories are short but the tales are long
down there in the reeperbahn
they called her Rosie when she was a girl

for her bright red cheeks and strawberry curls
when she would sing the river would run
she said she'd be a comedian
oh what a pity, oh what a shame
when she said "come calling" nobody came
now her bright red cheeks are painted on
and she's laughing her head off in the reeperbahn
now little Hans was always strange
wearing women's underthings

his father beat him but he wouldn't change
he ran off with a man one day
now his lingerie is all the rage
in the black on every page
his father proudly calls his name
down there in the reeperbahn
now if you've lost your inheritance
and all you're left is common sense
and you're not too picky about the crowd you keep

or the mattress where you sleep
behind every window, behind every door
the apple's gone but there's always the core
the seeds will sprout up right through the floor
down there in the reeperbahn
down there in the reeperbahn
