But after a while, I felt that I wanted more. I wanted to create films with a *real* story, which are also for others funny to watch. I had some ideas, which I now want to share with you.

Not even the sight of a bit of cracked brass let into a stone affords me what I call real happiness.” He did however, admit that for most Brits, a poke around a cemetery was a great way to pass the time. Jerome then would not like Putney Vale Cemetery but I do.

    Kensal Green Cemetary

    Kensal Rise cemetery is the final resting place of Isambard Kingdom Brunel. It is one of Londons oldest graveyards and has some incredibly ornate mausoleums that belong to the rich and famous from the past. I don't know why but whenever i take pictures of this type of thing i get goosebumps and start to question whether or not i should be snapping away in a place that holds such sadness.
