Friday Night at the Cobalt

Friday nite at the Cobalt

My cat Grinder woke me up just after 5 AM on Friday, worked all day and then went to pick Carola up about 9 PM. She was too sick to leave her house, she said. I tried to get her to change her mind 'cause Gabe had put us both on the list. Well the first band at the Cobalt was from Surrey, with the cool name of "Picking on Toddlers". That's them in the photo above.
I didn't know very many people at the show, and I left before "Raised by Apes" came on. Sorry next time I will stay. The stage lighting at the Cobalt was a bit brighter I thought but still way too red, so this photo of "The Remedials" went into photoshop.

taking photos of dolls

Jane and I had tables of stuff for sale at a swap meet in the Westend on Sunday. I took some dishes and some photos of mine in books for people to look at. There were quite a lot of people there, but before boredom set in I took to taking photos of some of the dolls Jane was selling.

I think a little girl bought the scooter but not the bunny.

Knees together is important even for dolls.

Looking for the 'soul' of the doll, is what I was looking for, I thought. I was sad when she was sold to the little girl who bought the scooter, well maybe happy too.

the moon

Sometimes pushing the walk button and running out in the middle of the road to take a photo makes more sense than anything else in the entire day.

Jeremy Fisher

I shot a few shows last week. The Railway twice and Jeremy Fisher on January 29. The Jeremy Fisher show has stuck with me.
