Splendour In The Grass – Thursday


All packed and all set for the weekend. At least I hope I am…

Worked out my plan for the weekend earlier in the week and it looks like this.

SITG - Saturday

SITG - Sunday

That’s the plan anyway, although not sure if it will happen; it largely depends on bands starting on time and ease of movement between stages. Most of what I want to photo is either on at the Supertop Stage or the GW McLennan Stage, the two most far apart stages, so there’s going to be a lot of running involved.

Hopefully everything will go the plan; my camera was a bit poorly a couple of weeks ago when I was up in Cooktown, and it’s still not 100%, with the exposure meter in both Shutter and Aperture Priority modes not working. Manual is still ok, and as long as it’s ok for another few days everything will be alright. Just in case of emergencies I bought some b+w film for my backup film SLR… Fingers crossed it won’t come to that (although I am tempted to shoot a few rolls for fun).

Wish me luck!

I am a bit disappointed with them, although I’m guessing they probably are more animated when one of their two singers doesn’t have a broken leg and and one of his arms strapped up. To be fair he still does give a really good go, although I manage to miss him jumping every time by not paying enough attention, but musically they just aren’t my thing. […]

  2. […] The alarm goes off at 6am, although feeling pretty tired and in a world of pain, much like I did when I climbed Mount Warning earlier in the year, I don’t manage to get out of bed until 6:30am. It’s straight into editing and I manage to get the ones I’m sending off for consideration for print finsihed off quickly and so start on the web photos. I upload some photos to flickr, write a quick blog, do a quick bit of music forum photo/blog whoring and it’s time to get back up to the site and photograph another day’s worth of bands. […]
