Architectural Photography Contest | St Paul's
I used to work in Farringdon for AKQA, an advertising agency. They had a super posh office, based in a trendy area of London (for media types at least). It was intense sometimes, I worked a lot of hours and I put my everything into it even though I wasn’t a fan of this life - being in an office. Sure there were good points but it wasn't an environment I felt comfortable in, I’ve always worked in manual jobs, had more freedom and most importantly been outside!
I left school at 16, I remember the age-old father/son 'motivational talk', he pointed towards a guy spinning a stop/go sign and said “that’ll be you” as he remonstrated about my behaviour and life choices one day. Either he wanted to make a point (and succeeded) or he was mad, but as a kid you don’t interpret it the same. You either listen to that and resign to the fact you’re a fuck up or you strive to prove him wrong. I remember thinking that maybe I’d LIKE to do that job anyway. Anyway, some 10 years later I was a Project Manager for the Rolls Royce account. Not bad eh Dad!
Even though it wasn't my favourite job, I remember taking the time to remind myself I was fortunate. In hindsight it always feels like you could be more appreciative for what you have.
Humans are only as fortunate or as lucky as their situation allows...
