Charlie Watts once said of his time in the Rolling Stones something like “…5 years working and 20 years hanging around …”. Sometimes it seems like I have similar days, frantically crazy moments preceded by hours of waiting around.
A while back I started to take a snap in these times and stuck them on facebook and then instagram. People seemed to quite like them and try to guess where I was or who I was waiting to shoot in situations ranging from totally bizarre to utterly banal.
So, now I have a blog to fill I’m going to stick some of them on here with the original comments I made at the time and then see where we go from here.
