I've kind of been lacking direction with my photo taking lately, hence the lack of posts. But inspiration has finally arrived, thanks to The Ritas and Peter Blake exhibition at The Lowry.
I've been absorbing so much creativity lately, mainly by going to lots and lots of gigs, I felt like I needed to put some of it back out there... and so this project was staring me in the face. Nothing earth-shatteringly original about it, but it's giving me some direction and purpose for taking pictures, so hopefully something good will come out of it at some point...
It's simple concept: I choose a great lyric and I take a picture (or find one from the archives) to illustrate it. Then I'll share the results. And if you have a lyric that you want me to try and encapsulate in an image, I'm up for the challenge!
So here goes...
Picture: Me with Mr Nicholas Wire at National Treasures signing, HMV Manchester, October 2011 (thanks to @littlebabyfran for taking the pic)
Lyric: Enola/Alone - Manic Street Preachers
Picture: Blackpool, February 2011
Lyric: Everyday is Like Sunday - Morrissey
P.S. Photo Jenny is a Belle & Sebastian song, so it seemed like an apt title (and I'll use #PhotoJenny when I tweet new pics) x

I tried out the peppermint swirl mask filter for my MEG Diana+ lomo camera on a recent trip to Scarborough. I quite like the results...
A few more shots in my flickr album x

Angus and Julia Stone David Ford Frankie (& the Heartstrings) Brigitte Aphrodite This is the longest I have ever gone in my adult life without attending a music festival (I think). The last one was Latitude 2010 and it was one of the most magical... even the wellies that we insisted on wearing one day were needless, as it was pretty much wall to wall sunshine, glorious music, theatre, poetry, comedy, smiley people. Four days of absolute heaven. Next week I'll attend Latitude 2012 and if it's even half as good, I'll be a happy Jenny. As ever, more on the flickr if you want them x

Hard to believe it was less than 2 months ago that I saw The Chapman Family for the first time! Then the madness ensued...

A few night-timey/dusky shots taken between watching bands at The Great Escape Fest. Look at those skies! The parasols were on the ceiling in a cute Thai restaurant just round the corner from our apartment. Next installment - a few gratuitous band shots.

Last month I finally, finally visited Brighton for the first time. I love a good traditional seaside resort, so to discover a new one is always a treat. I've been neglecting my little blog of late, so this is the first of a mini series to make up for it. More Brighton highlights soon!

Walking to work the other day I noticed how many different signs of spring there were, even in this relatively built-up area... probably a lot of them only seen by those of us moving at a slower pace along the footpaths, peering through fences... So was inspired to take the camera out today too and capture the remnants of the blossom in between the April showers. Taken lazily with the 'flower' setting on my Fujifilm FinePix F100fd. A few more on flickr x
