It was Dunmow Carnival today, usually they have great weather for this, but not this year…at least it was only drizzle…mostly. I eventually had 30 minutes to pop out after my dinner and caught the second half of One Step Behind – Masters of Madness, the Madness tribute act. They were excellent and had a good crowd watching, dancing and generally having a good time.

You’ll gather the sax player, Mike Brown, spotted me ;-). More shots of the band after the break.

Beards are definitely popular again. To be fair, the guys in Jaya The Cat have always had beards (certainly for the last 4 or 5 years I’ve been following them) and they wear them well 😉


I’ve been away for a few days at the Rebellion Festival in Blackpool with my brother. We go most years and see a large number of bands over 4 days and drink far too much lager…it’s great!

We arrived Thursday evening and one of the highlights was a performance by the Street Dogs, this is Johnny Rioux, bass player, backing vocals and harmonica.

323/366 The Mad Caddies

I took a few shots yesterday with my super swanky Nikon D800 and super expensive lens before I went out in the evening…and what do you get, a shot taken by a cheap and cheerful point and shoot that fits in my jeans pockets. Yes, this picture won’t win any photography prizes, but, it is a reminder of a great night and the fact that the subject is the important part of the picture, not what it was shot with.
