I was asked recently what sort of photography I do. I wouldn't say that I really 'do' photography as such, more that I take photos of everything and anything I find interesting. As such the image below was taken because I liked the trees. It's also where my mum used to walk on her way home from the beach and where my dad used to go hunting (thankfully not at the same time). Here are a few more from the weekend in Essex.
On behalf of the very worthy cause of The Prostate Cancer Charity I have turned the clocks back 5 years and shaven my sacred beard. Why you ask? Because for the month of Movember my team and I will be growing moustaches to raise money for the charity. Having not shaven properly in 2 years, I forgot how unpleasant it was. It's a lot of effort and the only reward is razor burn, having a considerably colder face and looking like your 18 year old self. As such I'm asking that you please acknowledge this immense personal sacrifice by signing up and joining in
As opposed to posting my own work as per usual I was moved to share this photo with you in direct reference to my previous post on Tubing in Vang Vieng, Laos. Through the haze of Beerlao, local whisky and mushrooms I can recall floating down the Nam Song river witnessing the spectacular view below. I don't think I was ever in any state to go out and take a photo like this, so a personal thanks I guess. Check out some of his other work http://www.flickr.com/photos/buttonmooon/
Ollie has come home from New Zealand for a month and with him he brought a soapy Caltex steak and cheese pie and a load of long lost videos from Tubing. Feast your eyes on the links below for a little reminder of why we loved it so much.
So after a tremendous two years of Vesta Road and her various residents it came to moving out time. Having only personally been involved with this domicile of dreams for a year I can still say it was a sad day when the door was closed for the final time. After much repainting and cleaning the house is now someone else's. Check out the empty shell here and Dead Red Sun's finale performance here.
