Sending love to Barcelona for the loss of Treze who has sadly lost his fight to his illness and who I had the pleasure of meeting briefly in Glasgow last year. Much love and condolences to his family and his lady Zurik. Rest in peace.
Thank you to those who still check in here – I am currently building the 2017 gallery which I will pop up when completed – 2018 is a quieter year for me because I have some big events during this year and I also need to spend some quality time writing.
I fully intend to get back to regular updates on here when I can.
For now, give your loved ones a hug, tell someone you love them and don’t keep putting stuff off that you want to do – do it today. Life really is a terribly short thing.

Its funny you know. A single question from a writer that I was asked a month ago hasn’t stopped bothering me. I keep going back to it. Its lead me to stop and think loads about all sorts of things and allow myself a little dwell on some of the amazing stuff I have done over the last couple of years. Now, I have always been a sort of ‘what will be will be’ kinda girl. I still am. I think. I still think that we are meant to be where we are doing what we are supposed to be doing even if its sometimes seems that we are not and that everything is a bit pointless. I still believe that. Some days I believe that a bit more than other days, but still……
Now there is no denying that I have had a few turbulent years. I have had things happen that have quite literally knocked me from pillar to post. I have had time when I have just stopped and stared at my navel for hours, having planned to do something, write something, be somewhere, then just not managed to leave the sofa/bed/house. These times have then been followed by a mass amount of guilt poured on myself by myself like petrol – with the fact I have ‘wasted time’ being the wick my thoughts then ignited. … Read the rest
Amazing night. Always lovely to see the wonderful Steve Cradock from Ocean Colour Scene, even if I was a bit surprised (damn he works hard he’s EVERYWHERE) – always ace to see The Specials but extra brilliantness to see Toots and The Maytals – these are hero’s of my youth as a mod and a rude girl and Ive never stopped loving any of them.
Small selection of shots (I wasn’t there as Press for a change and I was way to busy dancing 🙂

I don’t do selfies very often and less often still would I ever share them anywhere – but on the rare occasion I do (as above) its because I want to remember something amazing. And this really was amazing. Im soaking wet with sweat having just spent four hours bouncing around either dancing to a band or being bounced around in a mosh pit to a band. The band (s) in question were The Specials and Toots and The Maytals and the event was SlamDunk and I was there, on my own, completely by accident. Only I could manage such a feat. But what a night it was.
Here is a selection of some of the shots I managed from high in the air of a random strangers shoulders…. more on the awesome musicians another time…… for now here are a few of my fellow festival goers….and how I saw the night, shot because people still are the greatest subject to take pictures of and even better if they are having fun and to be honest are skinheads…….
And finally – as it got a bit over bouncy even for me – I shall forever be grateful to the amazing people who were around me who literally had my back at one point – I never caught their names but one of them looked the double of Max Branning from Eastenders (which I constantly told him!!)…tell me Im wrong!!!… Read the rest
I don’t do events. I do do events which involve me flying or being invited (generally) though – and I damned sure was going to do THIS event as it involved both. I’ve never been to Glasgow either so there were a lot of boxes that I got ticked by travelling up to the Yardworks Event arranged by a local writer Gaz Mac a few weeks ago. I’m not sure why, but I was convinced that Glasgow was going to be wet – mostly because in previous (not many to be fair) visits to Scotland it has always rained but I was still excited to be going up and when I got there to be greeted with glorious sunshine, a huge welcome from people I already knew and from people I didn’t it was a really lovely weekend. The following are a few shots I haven’t shared anywhere else, a few I have but also a few of the beautiful City itself. Big ups to Glasgow, twas lovely….
Little Wing Lost, Glasgow, May 2017
With massive love and thanks to Gaz Mac, The Easy Riders, Akme, Tizer, Sokem, Cheo, Bonzai, Rask, Mac1, Astek, Musa and all the other amazing people who I had never met before but made me so very welcome x… Read the rest

I got asked to take some shots for this event held in the Tower Ballroom, Birmingham. Everyone seemed to have a nice time. Heres just a few of my favourite shots of the night.

A very few of the thousands of shots I took when visiting Alicante and Benidorm. I had a few technical issues with my kit and so Im not really very happy with these shots from here but heres a few non the less.

My favourite colour is blue. But I never want to see my toes go blues ever again. Hyperthermia is not big or clever. Even though this night in forgein lands was both – as well as a memory Im not sure I will ever beat.
