Photographing an acoustic show

December 10, 2023
First published October 2016 Here’s the background to last night’s sudden change of plan - thought I’d do an ‘evening in the life’ thing. Some of these notes I made on the train last night, the rest I put together on my way to work this morning. Around six weeks ago I photographed an artist at the venue I work at.
