My Week in Black and White

Friday, October 6th, 2006

Last Saturday night I took photos of The Drones at the Gaelic Club – they were great. Here’s a nice pic of the drummer Mike Noga. More photos of the gig can be found on triple j and flickr.

Sunday was Parklife. I only stayed a few hours because I wanted to watch the Rugby League Grand Final.

Monday night I took photos at a dinner for retired English football star Alan Shearer. Alan – as they say in the business – is a genuinely nice person. I don’t envy him though as it seems his entire days are now spent signing autographs and posing for photos.

As part of this job I coded a new flash gallery application as a way to easily distribute the photos taken on the night to the guests. It might be worth a look if you’re into that sort of thing (spot Les Murray!)

On a side note, each of the guests at the dinner received a copy of the new book “One Love” by photographer Levon Biss. It has many amazing football related photos taken across 6 continents. It’s also interspersed with some great football quotes from both literary luminaries and soccer legends including Albert Camus, Anthony Burgess, George Best and Pele. I think many Australians would agree with Pele’s statement that “A penalty is a cowardly way to score” after our controversial exit from this year’s World Cup!

And finally I also took photos of the Foo Fighters gig at the Sydney Opera house. Unfortunately because of those silly photo contracts I can’t post a pic here (go to triple j to see them) so instead here’s a pic I took on their last visit.

So what’s all this blogging stuff about then? After checking out numerous reviews I’ve decided to give wordpress a trial run as my blogging software of choice. The installation was a breeze. Now I just need to customise this thing!
