Describe your perfect day: Once, I had to find a location around town. The client needed views from really high up. So I spent the whole day hundreds of feet off the ground, staring hundreds of feet back down to the pavements . I visited sky scrapers in the city, restaurants on rooftops with gardens and vines, then monuments like Tower Bridge all battered and misused. Finally i watched the sun go down over Hyde Park from the top floor of the Hilton. You can see into Queen Liz’s house from there. It was a great day, I felt shambolic with adrenalin..
