Twycross Zoo 2

Twycross Zoo, We’ve been before, and i think we’ve been spoiled by Chester Zoo, and a couple of other places as every animal they have we can see better somewhere else.. Thats not to say it’s a bad place… just we’ll travel to find better photo ops… anyway photos below..

Pin Hole Camera Test

Well the other week i decided to treat myself and bought a pinhole camera lens for my camera, basically it’s just a lens cap with a pin hole in it… looks quite cool though… so here is the test photo – there is only one pic for it… so no link…

i THINK this was about a 3 minute exposure…

Art Brut & Keith Top Of The Pops & His Minor UK Indie Celebrity All-Star Backing Band

I really hope i got Keith’s band name correct, or i’m going to look silly…
but not sure how to sum up the near chaos of Keith TOTP & Band, there are 8 guitars, 1 bass, 2 brass and a drummer with several people singing backing, but it’s never a mess… it all just seems to fall into place..

click on either photo to be taken to the gallery

Now on to the main band, Art Brut, I’ve known them for about 8 years now at least. I asked permission to do photos and was told no problem, usual 3 songs no flash, but also, don’t photo Freddy (the bassist) she doesn’t like photos, she has strayed into one or two but i behaved, apart from going well past the 3 songs… but only occasionally…

And click on the photo of “New Boy” Jasper (he’s only been in the band 7 years) to see the rest of the set

Carter USM, The Frank & Walters, Sultans Of Ping & Clinton USM – Brixton Academy

Ok so this took me a lot longer to get up than i was hoping, but at long last here they are…
Manchester was a better venue than Brixton, the stage was smaller so everyone was closer, but Brixton was good fun, I was on my own as Raych decided not to do London, And the aftershow was good fun, even if i did stay up all night, get kicked out the venue at 5am, stuck on late trains and finally got home 26 hours after i left… 🙂

but anyway, there are 4 photos below, if you click on each photo will take you to the gallery of each lot
