Tiny Sydney, long disassociated

Thursday, 17 April, 2014

Tiny Sydney, by Filippo Rivetti, not a bad old town really, is it?

If you’re reading this right now, disassociated has just ticked through a rather pivotal milestone – well I think so anyway – and given the… significance of the moment I’m taking the next four days off.
