The Chestnut Queen, 2011

Meet Matilda, this years Bagnall village fete, Chestnut Queen. I have again had the honour of being the fetes official photographer and spent a few wonderful hours on Sunday taking pictures and being part of something that is so English. The English village fete is a dying breed, they take months to organise, are costly to run and at the end of it are hostage to our great weather.
This fete is one of the best in the country, listed in The Times Weekend supplement as 'One of the 20 great fetes', and it is all down to the hard work of the local volunteers.
My picture taken on the day can be seen HERE

Hidden views, photographic exhibition still on.

The exhibition Hidden Views at the Coffee Clique in Getliffe's Yard in Leek is being held over for another month by popular request

So what is it all about, Hidden Views is about the need to see places you are not normally allowed to see, the idea arrived in the second week in March and at first I nearly did not use it as the time was so short. Not only was there the matter of getting 30+ good images (hard enough on its own) but these had to be taken in places you would not normally get to or even see.

This picture is of the inside the Clock room of the Westwood Clock Tower. The pendulum is swinging quite slowly but due to the long exposure it is very blurred.
