This weeks edition is available now here:
Full of cold today with a banging head and a sore throat…so took off into a good strong breeze and walked down the Suffolk coast from Stutton to Lower Holbrook…kill or cure! I’m not a birder and never know what I’m looking at (and don’t really have the kit, skill or application to photograph it particularly well). These may be Grey Plovers, but are probably seagulls! I saw a heron in flight as well.
I’m not sure why, but I have only ever shared photography stuff on my blogs and that is really only a small part of my interests. One of my other main interests is music…and some fairly specific genres. I both listen and play (although I don’t play anywhere nearly as much as I used to). Most Friday evenings I’ll be mooching around You Tube looking for anything musical that catches me eye.
Last night was no exception and I came across this fantastic full concert recording from The Stranglers during their Feline period. It was recorded for the Rockpalast series – if you do a search for these on You Tube you’ll find a whole host of goodies. In the UK we’ve always had some decent music programming but I’ve always been a bit jealous of this German based series…I mean…they’re full concerts, what’s not to like?
So, today I finished off my 4,000 word assignment for my Marketing diploma and followed that up with completing my City and Guilds homework and then attended the City & Guilds class in the evening…so I didn’t get a whole lot of time for actual photography.
I had to choose the theme for this weeks one shot challenge – so I chose “music”, this one didn’t make the grade 😉
The title, by the way, is from a live version of London Lady by The Stranglers where JJ Burnel gives this instruction before Hugh Cornwell’s guitar solo, Max is Max Bisgrove, the sound engineer.
Its rainy and miserable outside so I was definitely staying in for today’s photograph, so I had a rummage through my desk draws and found my bag of button badges. I still wear badges, particularly on my Harrington jacket, but I always feeling that I am having a real throw back to my youth – not just because almost all the badges are the same as I used to wear when I was 14. Badges were always a great cheap way of showing allegiance to the groups at the time when I had almost no money, and what little I had went on (7 inch) records and lime green socks!
Shown here are, amongst others, The Stranglers, The Clash, Crass, The Dead Kennedys, Conflict, Alternative, The Chords and The Specials.
