As yesterday was a working day, and I don’t want to be one of those guys that runs round a venue taking personal photos and then posting them online. I decided to have some thing stocked up in the bag ready to show you guys, Im talking about the warm up band for the other nights gig at the Seabright Arms. its the band HAZY JANE. this band are the kind of people that pop up at 3am in a music festival around that camp fire and all of a sudden your its 6am in the morning and your now best friends with a stranger talking about all the things you guys are going to get up to in the future. thats the type of band these guys are.
What makes it even better is that this band is based out of Hackney, so pretty local to where I live they play British Folk /indie music so all pretty chilled out accoustic sets. One thing I love is that they set up a crowd funding page to raise some money to record their first single “Us On A Wire” and even now have like a mini UK tour planned for April next year and will be playing all round the London, Norwich and Brighton. trust me if you see that they are playing at a gig near you, get down there and give them a listen. you cant go wrong.
Ive been back in London this week and its been a bit mental not too mental just a bit, definitely not 9 to 5, leave your work at work. Today is Friday and nothing could make me happier than knowing its the weekend tomorrow! anyway, I thought today would be a good day to show some of the photos Ive put on instagram and not just my blog. do something a bit different ya know! Since instagram started I can safely say that a lot of people put a lot of work into the pages, its just a natural thing, that in turn has developed their style of photos.
one of my weakness or strength’s what ever way you look at it, is I dont really have a style or I havent found it yet. Im just enjoying taking photos and trying to make my latest one look better than the one before that. I just see a photo opportunity and I take it, I dont think about how one photo might be different from the last and don’t want to concentrate on one area of photography more than the other, I just want to take a load of good stills, that I think are sick. im not sure if thats selfish or not, or even the right thing todo to get better, but well see what happens.
So for now, I’m pretty happy just snapping away and developing my none style style.
heres so photos I’ve taken at gigs and stuff, some are on my instgram, and some of the others never made the cut.
if ya wanna see more from my instagram go have a peep – @joshfspear
So before my train yesterday I wanted to pop to st annes Square to see the memorial for those people killed at the concert a few weeks back, everyone was telling me how amazing it was, when I got there they had taken to the memorial down, the only thing left was a few flowers on the statue and some candle wax on the floor. it was properly raining, the type of rain that somehow only manchester can have. But i still thought it was only right to leave some flowers and show some respect.
