I’m dizzy! What a good trick. I’m going to make of those images exactly what I want…thanks for that! Elizer March 11, 2007 at 10:43 am Reply Feeling a wee bit inebriated? j/k I love this collection. St March 11, 2007 at 7:55 pm Reply Alistair The use of black and white make these pictures look so awesome!! There are three that I just keep looking at and two of them I have not been able to figure out yet. I always enjoy reviewing your pictures because they are so clear and bright but these are so different. I will be spending some time looking at these pictures. Valerie Ward March 12, 2007 at 12:49 am Reply Reminds me of that old movie,Haunting of Hill House with Julie Harris. Hope you weren’t having a similar experience. Good to hear from you. Craig C. McNichol March 14, 2007 at 10:34 pm Reply This is how I feel when I see or think of Alistair…….. Will you go on a date with me? … Pleeease?! Paul March 14, 2007 at 10:39 pm Reply Where have I been? I write a daily humor column for my local newspaper. The other day I wrote on T.V. hosts and presenters. I gently made fun of Wink and Pat. Then my life was changed: I discovered BBCAmerica and “Cash in the Attic.” So what’s so great about CIA? A. Appleton. I have found your site, and am bowled over by your gifts. I won’t run a retractiion, but I will bring you to my readers’ attention. Besides, I think I’m in love. Valerie W March 15, 2007 at 8:19 am Reply Reminds me of that old movie with Julie Harris, The Haunting. Hope your experience was more pleasant than hers was in the movie. robin March 17, 2007 at 5:14 am Reply The pics are great, as they usually are here, but why not give visitors the click-to-enlarge option? steven March 17, 2007 at 5:31 pm Reply The use of black and white make these pictures look so awesome. After a week I am still trying to figure out three of the pictures. I have spent probably a good 20 minutes on each picture letting my imagination on those three pictures go wild which has probably stimulated my brain for the first time in a long time. Your pictures that you post are always stimulating and allows us to think about things. Valerie W March 19, 2007 at 1:17 am Reply A haunting display. Budi March 19, 2007 at 11:31 am Reply This is the first time for me to open your blog, since I love your show in BBC Prime. Here in Geneva, Switzerland, I can see it in the weekend, on Sunday, right after I woke up, having my tea, and rushing straight away to prepare myself to attend mass in my beloved church. Well, I was so surprised to find out that you are gay. Well, for what ever sex orientation one has, it does not really matter. But, as a gay myself, to find someone who could present this “cash in the attic” brillianty, I feel proud of you. Just a short annecdote, that the gay friends found me very affirmative (je ne sais pas comment le dire en anglais… pardon moi), since I don’t have a gay look stereotype coming from the society. That perhaps is my feeling when I found you a gay. Well, done. I have not seen all the things in this blog, but il will check it once I have time. Sorry, I have to rush since I have a meeting now. Cheers. Valerie March 20, 2007 at 6:48 am Reply Haunting Mark March 23, 2007 at 3:07 pm Reply OK, so this sounds strange… I checked out these pictures a few days back, had a giggle – thinking ‘been there, done that’.. then last night I had a dream in which I was drunk (very peculiar sensation!) and you were there Alistair – so thanks for propping me up & holding my hair back when it all got too much & the booze came back to haunt me. Weirdly though, this morning I woke up (sober, of course) and felt like I’d been on an all-night binge: all of the punishment & none of the fun! Should you ever find yourself drunk and disorderly Alistair, I promise to do the same for you 😉 Keep up the great writing (I’m envious of your skills of reflection) and the awesome photos, Mark Kasia March 25, 2007 at 5:54 pm Reply Hi Alistair, I’m from Poland, so already now I’m so sorry for possible mistakes 🙂 I want to tell You, that You are fantastic presenter ! I watch You in “House Doctor” and I must admit, that You and Anne Maurice are fantastic duel 🙂 🙂 🙂 What are You doing now…? Oh, I would forget : I heard, that You taught on the university in Gdańsk, in Poland. So, I have a question 🙂 Could You say something about it…? How do You remember that time…? It was good or bad experience in Your life ? Do You speak Polish…? 😉 I’m very curious : what caused, that You had left exactly to Poland ? I’ll be very grateful, If You will answer me the questions 🙂 And, at the end : I’m very happy, that I could write to You 🙂 Keep holding on ! (and now, something Polish :)) Pozdrawiam bardzo ciepło ! Kasia Snazzi Quirkemon April 2, 2007 at 11:29 pm Reply Val sensed it – a paned approach screaming a paranormal pairing of Shirley Jackson’s classic novel The Haunting of Hill House with David Lynch’s tipsy twist. snazzy quirkyman April 3, 2007 at 12:14 am Reply A paned premonitional and paradoxical pairing of Shirley Jackson’s classic The Haunting of Hill House with a David Lynch approachable panoply. Duane April 4, 2007 at 10:50 pm Reply Shirley Jackson meets David Lynch. ‘Approach’ is a paradoxically paned phantasmagoria. A pell-mell, yet fascinating pastiche/panoply. A piercing peek into possibly the preeminate 21st Century British photojournalist-panjamdrum. A palatable and palpable philtre. Brilliant! Phenomenal! Right then – an inebriated shutterbug. Duane April 6, 2007 at 6:54 pm Reply Your Ghastliness! Pertaining to my comment (#15) above, please excuse my erroneous spelling [preeminate] of preeminent. I sometimes spell like I speak (Hoosier twang). Number all comments in this entry #13. Leave a Reply Cancel Notify me of follow-up comments by email. Notify me of new posts by email.
