Whitby!!!!!
I tried something different this Whitby. The first time I went I hung around with boglin and jfs and had bad photos taken of me. This social leper engaging in conversation by association was my survival approach until the coming of the camera. Then I discovered that I could avoid making conversation by hanging around at the front and competing for stage space with _mrx_. Then davefish ruined that by being all friendly :-P

This time I tried something different - rather than obsessively take photos, or practice the ancient Chinese art of conversation I tried to do both. And... it worked!

I managed to take some photos, and I managed to have conversation! Flushed with success I even engaged strangers in conversation on TWO occasions!

Of course, I've got a huge rant about social circles, friendship, more than friendship, not knowing how to know the level of friendship; then a less introspective rant about cake and how wonderful the sea is especially when it gets a bit rough; and finally at the bottom of the seriousness scale are PVC and sproingy hair.

But I can't be bothered with all that. I can't even be bothered to moan about queue jumping at the 80s night (not as bad as usual in my opinion).

So, Whitby April 2005 - I had a good time despite a couple of wrinkles. I'll probably even go to the next one - but I have to survive Infest first!

Now, where's the diet and guide to "alternative hairstyles for the discerning alternative gentleman".

Oh, and finally - go look at http://www.venomandbootle.com/; and look behind the cut at some of the band photos I took this weekend. Many more, plus some "holiday snaps" of "Six go mad on a boat", soon.

You have wrinkles now?

Too much red again? ;o)

You noticed then...

With Voltaire I actually gave up trying to take photos while the lights were red, then charged into the middle wielding a 70-200 when they went green.

It was good seeing you and chatting. Sorry if I ruined your brooding silent goth plan.

I really like the shot of Katie Jane.

Ruined plans = more angst potential

Where are yours then? ;-)
davefish From: davefish Date: April 26th, 2005 02:17 pm (UTC) (Link)
The angst will help with the whole gothic image.

I'm much less efficient than you, so mine probably won't arrive for a little bit. There is a faint hope that like wine they will get better with a little bit of aging.

I did some preliminary work on them at Whitby, but it will take me a while to go through and find a "set" for each act after this initial "teaser".

Awesome photos!
kneeshooter From: kneeshooter Date: April 26th, 2005 05:16 am (UTC) (Link)
Thanks :-) I'll do more soon then you can pick any you'd like copies of as we discussed.

So did you like psychophile?

Re: photos

I must admit I wasn;t paying a lot of attention. There was nothing "wrong" with what I heard - I was just more interested in taking some photos then socialising.

Re: photos

You didn't listen! OH MY GOD that is so wrong. I LOVE them! *gasps*

Smogo

Oh here's Smogo's Live journal. You should show him some of your photos. (He's in Psychophile)

Re: Smogo

Yeah - we have a number of mutual friends. I'll hitch to the self-publicity bandwagon when I've finished going through them.

Thanks for the pointer!

Re: Smogo

Sure hope it helps with your schmoozing.

Re: Smogo

I hope so!

Those pics are all pretty good:) Can you take live pics of us someday?:)
kneeshooter From: kneeshooter Date: April 26th, 2005 07:40 am (UTC) (Link)
Oh, ok then - if I'm passing :-)

I do have to make a trip to see the Parental Units soon so perhaps I'll see if I can arrange it to coincide with a gig.
trauma_pet From: trauma_pet Date: April 26th, 2005 07:43 am (UTC) (Link)
that would be cool:)
karohemd From: karohemd Date: April 26th, 2005 04:06 pm (UTC) (Link)
Hopefully at a bigger equipped venue than the one I had to cope with...
trauma_pet From: trauma_pet Date: April 26th, 2005 06:33 pm (UTC) (Link)
Well you did a pretty good job, some of them are going to make it onto the website:)
karohemd From: karohemd Date: April 27th, 2005 12:23 am (UTC) (Link)

Woohoo!

So that's the difference being a camera geek makes ... All very nice.
kneeshooter From: kneeshooter Date: April 26th, 2005 06:50 pm (UTC) (Link)
:-) There's always just the worry that I can't make conversation about anything else...

Wow - and barely an incline of more than 15 degrees :)

Those pics are all interesting in their differents ways. The one of Voltaire is a great candid shot, and I really like the ITN one, too - the depth of field is very nicely judged.

Mum! Mum! She's picking on me again mum!

Thanks :-) Although I'd be hard pressed to justify in court the narrow depth of field in a creative sense - opening the lens really wide is the only way to shoot without flash at decent speed. Hence it could be argued that it's more a "consequence" than "design".

But then I again, I am aware of the likely result when I take the photo and don't try and compensate with flash or whatever, so on balance I'll take the compliment and run with it before anyone notices!

There was queue jumping in the 80s night queue?

I am surprised at that as I was the one dishing out tickets to make sure that it did not happen!

kneeshooter From: kneeshooter Date: April 28th, 2005 03:18 pm (UTC) (Link)
"A little" - not as bad as previous years. We got there at 7:15ish and were at the back of the queue for longer than we needed to be shall I say...

Nowhere near as bad as previous times though.
