Maidstone Take 2

Since this is a blog and more then just a photobucket page I thought I'd start writing a bit more to accompany the art/pictures/stupid yet awesome stuff i find. Yep just as the world goes twitter crazy with its one line status', I'm a good few years behind and will be boring the fuck out of you with a good ol fashioned blog. Luckily I've just woken up and cant think of too much to say, so today scrolling past my ramblings to the pictures wont take as long as it might in the future.

First up, since my last post I've been to Reading festival and back. I went in 2003 and 2004 but only for the day, and although at the time I thoroughly enjoyed my days out, turns out they were but a taster for the camping experience (having to leave midway through the Metallica set to catch my train didn't help.) Every band we saw were great, didn't leave any dissapointed, but the best times were to be had in and around our campsite. Im not sure the sheer genius of the rope trick will ever be recreated, needless to say I'm already thinking about next year and what I want to make sure happens again, what I'd do differently etc.
Not even losing my phone put a downer on the weekend (although later recieving the phone bill for £90 which included phone calls to Mexico and Columbia put a downer on the subsequent weekend.) Silver lining and all that though, because I've been having alot of fun with my new one. Firstly, not to sound like an out of touch grandad, but the quality of camera's being stuck in phones these days is insane, as my lovely assistant Poppy demonstrates.

And doesn't she look great folks?

It has a built in panoramic setting, which attempts to stitch a number of photos together. I say attempts because some of my favourite results are where it fucks up and looks great doing it.
So here's how I've been spending my first week back in Maidstone.

ps. stupid dog lololololol
