Mixed Blessings
Nothing like realising at 9am that you're not actually at your meeting in Oldbury, but are in fact still at home looking for a pair of clean socks...

It seems I have some competition for pics from the BBC - http://www.bbc.co.uk/birmingham/content/image_galleries/bloc_party_oct_13_gallery.shtml. I say competition, but IMNSHO they're not actually terribly good. Certainly I wouldn't swap them for my pics earlier in the year http://www.disturbing.org.uk/portfolio/portfolio-bp-nme05.php.

Of course, the other reason I don't care is that I had a storming night in Wolverhampton with Alabama 3, toxicpixie, holaholaamigos and Jools. After my previous experiences I didn't hold out much hope - but I could not have been more wrong. It was a superb gig, lots of fun, great music and left me with a smile on my face. And 3.5GB more of photos in the queue :-/

Those pics have nothing on yours. The quality of your live gig photography amazes me... do you use specific lenses for that sort of stuff? It's something I'm hoping to produce a portfolio of for my photography course next term.

I suspect those pics were done on a digital compact, which is far cheaper than the stuff I use - which is mid-range Canon SLRs and Canon/Sigma lenses.

I've put a list of kit I use online and have put a lot more info on the photos I publish on disturbingblog/http://blog.disturbing.org.uk/.

I'd be more than happy to sit down and talk camera-pr0n at some point if you like - but I've never studied it so you'll probably know more than I do!

Oh - I'm glad someone picked up the "reinforce my ego" subtext ;-)

Also, you don't cheat by having your 6th picture beign a zoom of your 5th.

I thought that was a bit cheeky :-)

Review three quarters written, needs twiddling with and finishing. Nearly done :)

And those Other Photos (tm) are pretty poor in comparision to yours!
