'We are Orient' : My boyfriend supports Leyton Orient and contrary to popular belief - I discovered from my first visit to Brisbane Road - that he actually wasn't the only Os fan on the planet.

Things here are very different.  There's no streets of tat sellers or people behind trestle tables mouthing off about the board or the Olympic Stadium, there's no crazy preachers shouting "West Ham for Jesus" or an hour long queue to even get on the tube.  At 5pm when you come out of the game with four thousand other Orient fans and wave the coach load of twelve visiting fans goodbye as it pulls out of Brisbane, there's no Met on horses cajoling you to walk half a mile in the wrong direction; and suddenly all of those four thousand fans simply merge into the gathering dusk and disappear like they were never even there.

Welcome to a lifetime of pain : As a West Ham United fan.  

I did a photo search for 'West Ham fans' on Flickr and a guy had written "If you're a West Ham fan, then welcome to a lifetime of pain" - it seemed a very appropriate comment to me.  My in-laws are from East London and are all die hard Hammers, so most of them know something of how that feels.

I have always loved football since I was a teenager.  My first job was even reporting on football for the local rag.  For some reason I got bored of it for a number of years - probably because I had no money, and going to a Southend United game was a rare treat; also because I spent years not being well enough to even consider going to somewhere as huge as Upton Park.  It wasn't until a few years ago when I borrowed my mate Kane's WH season ticket for two months that the sense of passion and excitement I'd had for the great British game as a teenager came flooding back and I was like - 'I let this go?'

I have met some great people at the Hammers and made some great friends.  It's not just about the scoreline for me (although that helps) - but the whole routine of the thing: the pre-match build up, the camaraderie, the coach trips to this country's nether regions that previously existed only in myth (like Wigan). Even meeting my mates at the best chippy in the world before a game is just what I did when I was a teenager.  

Plus as a photographer - I find the emotions on the faces of the people who attend these games truly fascinating.  Hammers are a rollercoaster of emotions and results and one thing I have found over the last few years is that their fighting spirit is irrepressible.

Welcome to a lifetime of pain?  Indeed.

Urbanscape : <b>Emphasizing urban environments.</b>
The city is composed of its architecture, buildings, urban scapes, places full of lines and various geometric figures. It also has an atmosphere that is composed of physical described above and its inhabitants, an atmosphere that makes it unique to each city. In this section I try to capture in an image the set of all these things, highlighting one or more aspects, combined or isolated from the urban world around us.
