Ah, the problem with doing a blog is the same as the problem with everything for me – I don’t have enough time in my week, day, hours. I feel really awful that I haven’t written anything or shared anything since October and its now December – but I also feel quite happy that I have good reasons, rather than bad ones, for never seeming to have the time. I had some time off today to run around Birmingham with my family. We don’t get to be together all at the same time that often anymore but today we did. I was given an opportunity to get up really high in a building to shoot Birmingham from a perspective I haven’t before and Im particularly pleased with the results. I am also proud because one of these perspectives will soon be gone completely when a new building covers this view. So whilst this isn’t graffiti, it is a pretty close love of mine to that – Birmingham.
Here you are 🙂
My favourite one I think…..
I might not plan to be forever living in Birmingham, but I will always love this City with everything I have got.… Read the rest

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

I haven’t stopped however, Im just taking a breathe from a few things just for a little while including this site for a couple of weeks. Ill be back soon as, but in the meantime take a moment to re- appreciate one of my favourites tunes – Im off to see ELO at Wembley tomorrow and to say Im excited is an understatement. Brummies are best, truly madly deeply x

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 🙂
LilWingLost, SlamDunk (by accident) Hatfield, Herts – May 2017
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….
