Today was absolutely packed. I started by loosing 40 minutes looking for a spare camera battery before remembering it was already packed with the rest of my camera gear, went on to wrap Christmas presents for friends I was seeing in the evening and finished the morning with a telephone interview with the gorgeous Robin Windsor. I was lucky to get hold of him as it sounds as if he was doing an awful lot of travelling in this, the last weekend before he starts working on the Strictly Come Dancing Live Tour he’s doing with Lisa Riley.

After the interview I went straight to Sadler’s Wells to fulfill a photographic commission to document the City Academy Open Day before going on to my friends in the evening.

As well as taking the regular type of documentary photography shots I played around a bit. These images are taken with a really old DX lens. I left the vignetting because I quite like it, but am really going to have to replace this one with some better glass.
