festival time

Went to the Cheltenham Festival yesterday – Ladies’ Day – first time at Cheltenham for me and the first time I’ve been racing for a long, long time. Four of of us went along; me, Fiona, Bill and Doug and I took the old Polaroid 680 with me and a couple of packs of film plus the G9. One of the packs came with this Freitag limited edition Polaroid camera I bought a while ago which came with two packs of limited edition film and you’ll see a little truck logo on the Polaroids from this pack.

Another festive occasion, Fiona’s birthday, so we broke out the Polaroid 600 One camera she got me for Christmas. Everybody just loves it , the process, the instant results and the iconic packaging, it’s an unbeatable combination at a party – the Impossible project has to be on to a winner – but the resulting images this time around are, shall we say, “interesting”.

Wombat Browning rehearsal

[topcolumn]Over the years I seem to have photographed quite a few friends’ bands – playing live, in studios or generally mucking about in the hope of getting an album cover out of it.[/topcolumn]
