Photo365 – Day 278 – Grace For Drowning

A parcel arrived today from Burning Shed containing my order for Steven Wilson’s deluxe edition of Grace For Drowning. I already have the media book version but thought this would be a nice item for my collection and if it’s like most of Steven’s other stuff it will become highly sort after in years to come, so a bit of an investment too.
Not only that you get some extra stuff as well as a gorgeous 120 page deluxe hardback book with great photography from Lasse Hoile
I decide to photograph it for my photo365 project and used the Olympus EP2 with toy lens and set in pinhole art mode. I photographed against the window light which caused the pages to be dark and in shadow so I placed a silver reflector at the front to bounce some light and make the pages white.
I was trying to portray how cool it looks.

Photo365 – Day 271 – record collector

Today I met my music idol – Steven Wilson of Porcupine Tree.
He was at a signing of his new album at my favourite record shop – Record Collector in Sheffield. I’ve been shopping their for 35 years.

Porcupine Tree haven’t played Sheffield in ages (well certainly not in the last 10 years) so it was a surprise he’d chosen Sheffield for a signing. It turns out his record label had arranged the signing and the venue. Steven was eager to check out the vinyl collection next door, but for the time being he was greeting fans in a queue that went from front to back and outside into the yard. I’d just picked up a fisheye lens for the ipod and this is the first shot from it. I was five minutes from my meeting. He’s a pleasant chap, and did a good job of working through the eager crowd.

I have a shot taken by the guy behind the counter of me with Steven.
