Photo365 – Day 99 – one afternoon in a hot air balloon

Sometimes you may not be prepared. I’d gone on Stanage Edge today and took the Olympus EP2 with 17mm lens (about 35mm in 35mm format) I intended to do a few landscapes. I spotted a hot air balloon and wished I’d taken a long lens. Here’s my shot. The balloon is a dot in the sky so I’ve added an arrow. It would have still been a small dot even with a long lens. I’d love to have been in that balloon.

The title of the photo365 photo is courtesy of the indie band Artery.

Weston Park Music Festival

nmx issue 8

Went to Weston Park to see Artery play live on outdoor stage. The gig was organised by Marcus Featherby Other bands included I’m So Hollow, Stunt Kites, Paul Bower’s 2.3, Xero and Artery. I took photos which have been used to illustrate articles on Artery, and my photo of Jane Wilson and Gary Marsden from I’m so Hollow was used on the cover of NMX (New Musical Excess) Issue 8 – a music fanzine that covered bands from Sheffield and surrounding areas.
