six dinner sid

When I was five my most treasured thing in the whole world was the illustrated story book 'Six Dinner Sid'. Apparently I would insist its presence remained in exclusively my bookbag (or hand) and, lo and behold the wrath one faced if they attempted to remove it... These days, I just like food so feel a certain kinship to the cat that tried - and succeeded for a while - to multiply his meals.

Photographer Michael Hughes has recently created an online portrait exhibition ’ Tweeter Street’  which ”aims to photograph Twitter users where they tweeted with what they tweeted”. I kind of hate Twitter - not being one who cares what somebody I will never meet consumed for breakfast that day -  yet this project makes you realise that all those inane comments actually spawn from a real life person somewhere (and that we’re all interesting and boring in equal measures).
