Today I dyed my hair ginger and finally did my eyebrows. I also bought myself a sports bra that’s actually going to be more of a swim top but yolo, my clothes, my rules. I go to Spain in a week and I’m shitting myself lmao
#sotd is #relax by #frankiegoestohollywood bc it’s been in my head nearly all day
Today is an 80s fuelled day, getting through a lot of outstanding work, and listening to the classic that is Frankie Goes To Hollywood's 'Welcome to the Pleasuredome'. Every time I spin that record, I can't help but think of the first ever show I photographed in the photo pit, kick-starting a very expensive and incredibly enjoyable addiction for me, through which I've met so many lovely people and experienced stuff I never expected to see. I photographed @mrhollyjohnson and #rolandgift at Feile 2016 in Falls Park, ascertaining the pass under the counter as BLKSTF at the time facilitated a number of local shows with the promoter. I used a Nikon D3300 with a Sigma 70-300mm lens which my mother bought for me. The D3300 was found on a bus my father was driving 12 months prior and no one came back for it. It became mine as a result. I'm forever indebted to @beemacay (no.6 - go follow this lovely soul for super duper snaps of all things wonderful) who took me out of Auto mode and showed me the wonders of Manual, telling me what ISO I should be on and how to work in a pit, as opposed to what I do now - less nervous, more mental/unpredictable? There were 10 other photographers that night, scary stuff for a newbie who's safe space was in the crowd. Can't believe this was over two years ago, frightening how time flies. Before that, the man on the moon had more interest in photography than me. The first image definitely laid the way forward for my typical stylings these days - wide as possible! #feile#hollyjohnson#frankiegoestohollywood#biginjapan#musicphotography#gigphotography#belfast#photopitforever#photography

Got stupid and bought stuff off the internet again.
This time it’s the 50th anniversary Yes Live at the Apollo DVD featuring #jonanderson#rickwakeman and that wanker #trevorrabin .
Gotta say, even Trevor Rabin sounds good. Still hate that guy for his unwelcome infusion of Americanized arena rock into what has always been the beloved, nuanced sophistication of #Yes .
But what the hell. Rock on, Yes! Happy anniversary! #prog#progrock
