I went and saw the Tony Ray Jones/Martin Parr exhibition at the Science Museum today. Wonderful pictures. I have many favourites, and this one is one of them. If you have a chance, go and see it. Not often that photographs can make you laugh out loud, although I admit this one is a little sad. Tragedy and laughter are often close friends right?
Chinese officials were forced to cut a motorway in half to go around a block of flats after they accidentally erected the building in its proposed path then realized it would cost too much to relocate the tenants.
Construction workers had to squeeze the eight-lane highway into four and subsequently left furious residents stuck in the middle of a busy road. They had just been moved from their previous homes to make way for a park so refused to move again unless they were heavily compensated.
So the council decided to save a small fortune by leaving the flats in place.
Meet Jack English, a 93-year-old legend who lives in a cabin isolated deep in the Ventana Wilderness, California.
While on a hunting trip he learned that an old homestead was put up for auction by the estate of a childless heiress. He put a bid on the property and won. On the land he built a small cabin using materials from the land and milling trees by hand. When his wife passed away, Jack effectively left “society” and moved to the cabin full time.

This is rare.
