Rockwell @ The O2

From Rockwell 2009
A fairly diverse group of artists came together for one evening of duets and hits to support the Nordoff-Robbins Music Therapy at the Rockwell concert

Maybe it was the cause or the size of the venue, the atmosphere worked better than other multi artist events I’ve been too in the past. The very doggy comparing by various non-musical contributor added to the entertainment as they attempted to fill the time for the inevitable pauses as each band’s set was arranged on stage.

Lighting up the Thames

From Thames Festival Fireworks 2009
Another chance to try to capture some of the magic of fireworks, this time over the centre of London rather than in rural France

The finally of the Thames Festival certainly didn’t disappoint – the fireworks really lit up the Thames. Fireworks with the London Eye, National Theatre or the OXO tower in the background…

Brazil comes to the Thames

From Thames Festival Carnival 2009
Carnival comes to the Thames – and for the third year in a row it was a pleasant late summer evening. Rather surprise given the lousy summer that was coming to an end…

It was a mix of the true Brazilian carnival with a few charities mixed in – it is amazing what you can do with recycled materials – correctly light plastic bags waving on the end of long poles take some time to recognise!
