Day 100 – Beach, originally uploaded by Andy Lane ~ Notts.

Bit of a while since I last posted but I’ve just gone past day 100 so I thought a post was most necessary. I’m so happy I was back in Brighton for the big day and I love this photo. It’s a bit of a cliche but I’m very pleased with how it came out.


Hi all,

I’ve been away for a while on a very lovely holiday in the Maldives and rather than flood my blog with weeks worth of images I’ll direct you to my flickr site ( to catch up with my 365. Daily posts will resume here tomorrow but for today here is my favourite image of the holiday.

Day 48 – One Way, originally uploaded by AndyLane78.

A short week after bank holiday weekend means that most people have taken the rest of the week off. It’s good news for the rest of us, lest traffic means an easier life 😉 and it also means it’s easier to lie down in the middle of the road to take photographs. Do not try this at home!

So we spent a very nice day and a half in Birmingham, England’s second city. Upon arrival we were greeted by the pounding drums of a seikh music event taking place just opposite our hotel. We stopped to check it out before heading down to the canals for some lunch. In the afternoon we just cruised the town centre visitng old hang outs from when we were at Uni.

On the way back to the hotel to drop off some shopping I took this photo of a statue on Broad Street, comissioned as a tribute to Matthew Boulton, James Watt and William Murdoch and their contribution to the Industry of Birmingham and the world. To read more go to wikipedia

So it’s Friday, here in England it’s a 3-day weekend (gotta love Bank Holiday Mondays) and I’ve had a pretty damn good week at work. I’m on the radio tonight ( – 10pm to midnight – Exile with AndyL) so expect an even more cheerful show than usual!

This is the view out of the window to the left of my desk, heavily edited in photoshop, it’s actually a merge of 3 exposures, tweaked, then converted to b&w then tweaked some more 🙂 I do love photoshop!

Janet and I are off to Birmingham tomorrow so I’m not sure I’ll be able to upload tomorrow’s image tomorrow so it’ll be a double post on Sunday I guess.

Anyway, gotta put my set list together and get ready to greet the weekend!

Day 13 – Smoker, originally uploaded by AndyLane78.

Kinda bummed out today because I left my bag on the bus. Not a major deal just some papers and tupperware … then I realised that my compact camera was in the bag! AARRGGGHHH!

There’s a chance it’ll be handed in at lost property or something but as I’m in Birmingham tomorrow I’ll have to wait until Friday to find out.


Anyway, this is a pic of the Imperial Tabacco factory in Nottingham taken just before sunset. Composed of two images to get the sky and building to expose correctly.

Day 3 – Moo Cow, originally uploaded by AndyLane78.

I’m a week into my 365 day project (6 photos so far – today is day 7). I’m going to start blogging the project here from tomorrow but for today I’ve posted my favourite photo so far. Personally I like the way the clouds and the vignette pull you in towards the subject.
