Going on tour with run, WALK! & Bats

canon eos 40d, tokina 12-24mm lens, olympus OM 50mm lens, sigma flash

so yeah no posts for like nearly two weeks...
well, recently i accompanied my friends band run, WALK! on a weeks tour around the uk alongside a band called Bats ( lovely chaps ) from Ireland.
i was taking photos for an article for this online music/culture magazine called sabotage, i'll put a link in when the articles up and running.
above are just some of the 989 photos i took that week.
we met and stayed with some very lovely people and drove very many miles but it was awesome and totally worth the tiredness, hunger and neck ache.
im out of practice in terms of blog writing, i'll get better again i promise.

Happy birthday me!

canon eos 40d, tokina 12-24mm lens

today was mine and joe's birthday, we have been alive for 19 years.
we got some cool presents, one of mine being a 500gb portable hard drive, so it's now time to finally back up my 43gb's worth of photos...
i also got a nice birthday email from an old family friend that apparently visits this here blog regularly so thanks for that Nigel, I hope your doing well!
this photo shows charlie spelling out happy birthday with the aid of my step dad, notice the small 'y' on 'happy'.

Recording run, WALK!

canon eos 40d, tokina 12-24mm lens

yesterday our friends matt and tom from andover/winchester came down for mine and joes birthday tomorrow, they also came down so that joe could record their new songs and this is what we spent most of last night /this morning doing in a local cricket club.
it was good fun and they recorded everything super quick because they are such bloody professionals.
i am taking photos of them and generally keeping them sane whilst preventing them from killing each other on their UK tour next week, so i'm sure you'l hear all about that when i get back.
there might be a proper full article using the photos somewherethatisn'there online afterwards as well.

sorry loads of information.
there are a couple more photos from the recording here

Box elephant

canon eos 40d, tokina 12-24mm lens, on camera flash

the night before last me and nearly all of my friends went round to the house that one of our other friends is looking after and had some drinks and listened to music.
it was great fun and started a little later and sequentially finished a lot later than was intended.
i dont know if it was the drink or the delirious-tired-every-things-funny syndrome that created the bottom left hand photo, but it was hilarious.
pure juvenile immaturity
now time to go and strip paint from a bike frame and watch the netherlands win the world cup.

Ellie and the olympus

canon eos 40d, tokina 12-24mm lens

today me joe and ellie took a bus to yeovil to do some shopping, i bought fairly mundane clothes that i needed for work.
new shoes for £3.00 which is frankly criminal
and some new black trousers as my others were sporting a rather large hole in a rather unsavoury area.
then we went to burger king and ate food.
sorry that the post title is rather misleading, you we're probably expecting to hear some lovely amazing story of how ellie found an old olympus camera in a tree or something.
i wish that was the case, but it wasn't.

today me and phil went to weymouth and i took and passed my driving theory test.
after that we went for a mcdonalds to celebrate like the healthy young men we are.

this resulted in lots of sweating and complaints to each other about how full we were both feeling afterwards.
