This week I are mostly been…

  • Being too lazy to write this at the weekend, like I normally do.
  • Shooting the Saab/Salomon Turbo X Race in Hampshire, and getting very wet, cold and muddy in the process. I lost the lens hood for my 70-200, and discovered a marvellous soft focus effect from shooting with a misted up camera lens in heavy rain.
  • Going back to my Alma Mater, Blackpool College to give a lecture, and being very impressed that despite managements best efforts to gut the place, the students were some of the most confident and outgoing I’ve met yet.
  • Photographing Mark Roe, whilst he was coaching Nick Dougherty down at Wentworth, and getting him to do a handstand on the putting green. Very chuffed with myself, although I must say he took little persuading!
  • Going round London Zoo for the first time since I was about 10. Particularly liked the Rainforest exhibit, mostly because it was bloody freezing outside!
  • Going to a recording of Will Smith’s Mid-Life Crisis Management at the BBC Radio Theatre. Most amusing, and frighteningly like myself in his outlook!
