Guilfest

Guilfest is just around the corner and I shall be there again this year, armed with my Nikon and a bag full of lenses. Headliners this year are The Levellers, Blondie and The Australian Pink Floyd plus others acts such as Seth Lakeman, Zucherro and Kula Shaker.

This will be the first time that I will be working independently and not through an agency. All photos will be placed on my other site www.nicklewisphotography.co.uk where they will be purchasable. I am planning on syndicating these out to newspapers and magazines for whom I have contacts for.

Looking forward to it!

Long Crichel – Quality pastry!

We discovered a fantastic new bakery company in Dorset this weekend, called Long Crichel Bakery in the village of the same name. My Dad (pictured above) had heard of their fine almond croissants. So we ordered some and whilst they weren’t cheap, they were damn well worth it, as they were delicious! Feast your eyes on the photo above and head for Dorset, you may get totally lost trying to find it, so you will be peckish by the time you do!

Email blogging not working

It looks like some of my posts have gone into a black hole today, as only their titles show. Sorry about this!

The man thing today is that I have found out that the Red Arrows have been banned from the 2012 Olympics which is both absurd and sad. Apparently they are deemed as being “too British”.

You can sign a petition on the 10 Downing street website to show your solidarity over this one. I have signed it.

In other news – New Bakery Discovered – If you can find Long Crichel in Dorset, good luck and reward yourself with one of their almond croissants! You will not regret it and your doctor will forgive you if you buy him/her one too!

I will post details and photos later.
