What a load of sh*t ..

A submission came in from my website contact form the other day that was so funny I just had to show it you in its entirety! Someone/thing called Sucks took the time out to patiently fill in all the required fields on my form, just to make sure he/she/it got a clear message across to me that they didn’t like my work! Well gee Sucks, I’m just glad you took the time to have a look at it!..

I shot a birthday party for a two-year-old child yesterday afternoon. By this morning I had a sore throat and the sniffles! Man, they must have had enough germs in that playgroup to start their own Biological Warfare Unit! Next time I’m going in with a jar of Vicks up my nose. Next time? Oh, Lord .. that’s next Sunday! Having said that, it was such great fun, and I think I’ll make a bigger effort to plug that aspect of my work. There are so many lovely pictures to be had! If only my work wasn’t so sh*t! Damn …

Still together after all these years ..

I look back at a lot of the people in my photographs and wonder “Where are they now?” and, at the weekend, I got the chance to meet up with a couple of my old ‘subjects’! I took a shot of a bust of Cromwell alongside this ventilator flue on my Olympus XA way back in the 80s. I loved the fact that they looked like a couple, an actual pair of sculptures designed to be together. Well, I was back at Buile Hill park in Salford on Sunday and I’m delighted to report that they’re still there. Actually, they’re behind bars together! The beautiful old Mining Museum, where they’re situated, has long been closed and is now a sorry sight, boarded up and surrounded by railings, locks and bars. The shot on the right is as close as I could get to my old friends! It made me feel quite sad but, as I always say at Manchester Wedding Photography, I’m so glad they’re still together after all these years ..
