The Coffee Clique Leek

A couple of shots (one today and one tomorrow) of the pictures on the wall of the Coffee Clique, taken on the opening day of the exhibition. A big thank you to Julie, the Red Shoes and especially to Carolyn for making the day so great. One of the best things was meeting people who read the blog, it was great to see you all, hope i can keep up the good work, all your comment were really encouraging.

Radio Radio.

There is a famous scene in the film The Commitments, the hero of the film is lying in the bath day dreaming about being interview regarding the success of his band. How many people out there have do something similar, I known I have, so last Thursday the dream became a reality when I was interviewed by our local radio station.

I had sent out a press realise about the Leek Daily photo exhibition and was expecting nothing more than a quick mention on their “what on” feature, so imagine my surprise (and horror) when they contacted me and asked if I would pop in for an interview on their morning show! I have to admit I was very nervous, I had never been in a radio station before, let alone on air, so sitting in the waiting room listening to the show was like a form of torture. Once in the studio I was immediately put at ease by Mervyn Gamage and Simon Edwards the 2 DJ’s and after a quick chat while a couple of records played, I was on air!!!

Leek daily photo 1st annual photo exhibition.

I've finally got my act together and organised my first solo photographic exhibition, it is due to start on the 20th February and will run for a month.

The venue is The Coffee Clique, Getliffe's Yard in Leek, the exhibition is free of charge, but I'm sure you can be tempted to buy a coffee and cake as you look at the photos. All the images are from this blog, there is likely to be around 30 framed photos in all (the short list at the moment stands at 70 so a bit of editing still needs to be done) and all will be for sale.

As this blog has a world wide following i will also put the images on a slide show to start on line on the same day, just so you don't feel left out.

The reason for the show is that on the 14th February this blog is a year old and i wanted to celebrate the occasion in a fitting way.

Photo for today is of a tree on the Roaches at dawn.
