Urban pirates

I'm still thinking about cities today.


I've been plundering deep into the treasures of Pinterest (a website for exploring and managing images, in case you're not familiar.)


I've been looking through pictures from 1970s New York, wartime London and contemporary Detroit.


Like their human creators, cities evidently go through their ups and downs – but what has been fascinating me are the people who didn't choose to jump ship.


Tough, nonchalant and often brazenly creative, I've found some inspiration today in these glorious rebels – urban pirates who were able to find magic amid the ruins.

Something to think on!
