A quick note to let you know I’ll be speaking on Wednesday as part of St Bride’s mini-conference, Stories From the Fold, with my publishing design hat on. You can find more info here: St Bride. Not that I’m nervous, but the other speakers just happen to be brilliant; Jon Gray, Zoe Bather, Clare Skeats , Phoenix Yard Books… I could go on!

Hope to see you there, and meanwhile I will get back to pacing the room and shaking uncontrollably.


One of my aims this year is to master the art of Lomography. Last year, I was lucky to be given both a Diana F+ and La Sardina. I took my Diana to New York, and I’m waiting to see how my shots of the skyline will turn out. But my first film to be developed was from La Sardina – taken on our trip to Marrakech. As you can see, I’m not going to win any prizes! The next film is almost ready to send off for processing, so fingers crossed! Any more Lomographers out there? Please share your shots & let me know it will all turn out OK! I’m used to using a temperamental, but wonderful old Zenit, held together with an elastic band (I’ll give it back to you some day, Dad!), so I will not be fazed!
