Scan-My-Media is scanning again....

As we have a new customer from Austria for Super 8 film, John and I set up the whole equipment to digitize Super 8 reels in our small flat. We kind of hesitatet to do since we moved to London. But it turned out very nicely with smart arranging of the stuff. So Scan-My-Media is in the Super 8 scanning again :-)
And we found a very nice store "The Widescreen Centre" in central London. They are family owned and has been since it started in 1971 (Wow, that is when I was born).
We needed necessary film cleaner for the old films as we were running low on it. We also have many Super8 films from my dad, which are overdue. Sorry, dad! But now we can do it again.
The son of the store owner recommended to me where I could find compresses air cans, which we also need to clean the films from dust. I can only recommend
"The Wiescreen centre ltd." if you happen to need film equipment.

A "Bank" at "Bank Station", which is amusing if you know German. In German "Bank" means "Bench". The sign signals that there is a bench below as it is easily to miss :-)
"Bank Station" is called this way because of the Bank of England, which is right at the tube station.

A look to New York....

Hardly anyone knows that a secret tunnel runs deep beneath the Atlantic Ocean. In May 2008, more than a century after it was begun, the tunnel has finally been completed. An extraordinary optical device called a Telectroscope has been installed at both ends which miraculously allows people to see right through the Earth from London to New York
and vice versa. Read more on the website.
And John and I were there yesterday and had a peek to the other side of the world
View to New York through the tunnel. We saw people waving at us and the Broolin Bridge in the background, whereas the Tower Bridge in London can be seen from New York and us waving. We saw people who had arranged to "meet-up" with their friends on the other side this way.
The picture below shows the view through the tunnel to New York we had...

Throught this below you were able to have a peek to New York. John is standing next to it...
The Tower Bridge in London can be seen from New York. John ist watching the Tower Bridge above...

Graffiti at the Tate Modern....

Hard to belĂ­eve, but this is Graffiti at the Tate Modern. I saw it already in the news: Tate Modern hired Graffiti artists to decorate the huge Tate Modern.
Some of them were in disguise so that they couldn't be recognized on TV. They fear that their style could be recognized from other perhaps not so legal locations.
John and I walked by there today and to check it out and saw they used some kind of foil. So in fact, the graffitis were done somewere else and then glued on the Tate Modern... maybe the only possiblity to create such a big piece of art in short time.
