Andy has been living rough on the streets of Manchester for the past eight months.

He became homeless after losing his job through illness and falling behind on his rent. The benefits agencies weren’t able to help in time to prevent the loss of his home.

He’s hoping the situation changes soon as he may soon have access to benefits and a place to stay.

This was shot just along from Picadilly Station, next to the Spar shop.

When people want the fiction to be reality

March 31, 2010

Interesting things happening over at the AF rangefinder blog

Jane the Phoole

Jane the Phoole

Photographer Jeff Ascough, has, an apparently as yet unannounced AF rangefinder camera to play with … or at least that’s the assumption that’s been made …

Of course reading closer and putting, just a little, thought to the matter, it seems to be a very different kettle of fish!
Probably a rather large, start of April, sort of fish.

There are plenty of clues littered through the posts, but only a few seem to have cottoned on.

At the Canon Rumors blog, there’s whole chapter and verse over what it might or might not be and which major player is behind it … as I said at the start, when people want a fiction to be a reality, they often overlook the truth of the detail.

And yes, I’ve done it too … See the amazing scratch and sniff computer experiment. We had fun with that!
