The Best Photos of 2014. Maybe.


This is the time of year that I frantically try and complete a calendar for 2015.  Here is the short list of my photos. It has been a strange photographic year really. Some memorable shots but maybe not as many as in past years so it has been relatively easy to get down to a final set of 22. all help appreciated in helping me choose the final 12.

Spike. A band to watch in Kingston


Spike are a band led by Tom Hodges, muisican at night and blacksmith by day. The only problem is that they live in different corners of UK so they play together twice a year. Last saturday at The Willoughby Arms in kingston we had that pleasure. Photography was a bit of a black art as there was almost no light, in fact the few atoms of light that did descend came from the screen behind the band that showed excerpts of films of photos. So the trick was to shoot when a white part of a film was showing, when a red part they looked like extras from Doctor Who. Excellent band, excellent evening and excellent beer. A real pubby pub. Go and see them next time. The female support band at the end? There is no explanation!
