Photo of the day

Yes I do P. - I am half of the Spindrift Photo Agency - suppliers of pictures of murderers, pedophiles and general
miscreants since 1996. The pictures I file to the forum are not work pictures. I.
Are you holding a pint glass with your hand on the shoulder of the man in the black tshirt, you have on a large wristwatch? Or perhaps you are the gentelman to the very right of the shot with the cap? I give in :D I need to sleep .
Thank you, it was fun......where's Iain?

Last night - a leaving do for one of the Daily Record staff photographers. Somebody I have worked with for twenty years. On occasion I have pulled his balls out of a sling and he me.Most of the people in this picture are the cream of news photographers in west central Scotland. Some picture editors and writers to boot. It's a dying trade. Children with -IPhones - will replace us. People don't care anymore. If you're interested I'm in this picture. A dinosaur. Yours- I.

A few familiar faces in that photo Iain,good to see the old Press bar is still going strong.
 
Pat - from left to right - hat-wise - staff photographer at the Record, next - ex staff snapper at the Herald and Times, now freelance - finally - I have no idea. Looks like a writer to me - too smartly dressed to be a monkey. We are not famed - as a group for our sartorial elegance. Yours - I.
Should have gone to speck savers right enough. In my defence I’m looking at the photo from my iPhone so it’s a very very very small screen I’m looking at.
Let’s hope I never have to pick someone out of an identity parade,some poor innocent getting shipped to the big hoose.
They still look familiar though viewing from my minute screen :D

Cheers

Tonight - wandering back home to my barrio. After the horrible, harsh light of the day - it softened just lovely at the end.
Psycho-geography lite. I'm still getting used to using a camera phone - granted a very good one - f**k me, how much for a mobile? - these pictures shot with the dedicated black and white lens in it. The quality astonishes me. I can't seem to hold the bloody thing straight though. It wants to bend at the edges with the least excuse. Still - I think I will come to love it - when I don't want to carry big conspicuous - come steal me - cameras. A photographer without a camera - of whatever sort - is not a photographer - just a man. Yours - I.

I nearly missed the moggy in the top picture, it's eyes giving it away and although the art in the second picture is not my thing, it briings ,like the cat a bit of life to a a pictire of urban decay. Good shots I
I'm not so sure holding an expensive phone out in front of you dosent shout mug me, but it's your patch and you know best :) P.
