More Music
I have just been asked by More Music in Morecambe to take some photos of their Hothouse activities, so last night went along for the "Stages" night, a drop-in band rehearsal night for 14-18 year olds.
It was a lot of fun, and there was some pretty good music being played.
So here's one of the first offerings. Expect more to follow.

On Saturday my (Star Wars mad) youngest son Archie will be 12. So just for him is a special picture of his whole family (pets and all) in a familiar guise.

From Left to Right it features Mojo and Tom, Me, Darth Toby, Stanley, Archie and Carol.

More Flax-ey goings on!
Next week Flax Books will be launching two new books (the actual book kind of books this time, not digital downloads) at Waterstones on King Street in Lancaster.
"West Coast, North Hill" Flax007 "Before The Rain" Flax006
I've done some of the photography for the two book covers (Lesley Anne Rose provided some also, and design was by Martin Chester) and as previewed in recent blogs have been making some promo videos of the writers reading extracts of their work. Here's Jan Petersen reading "Dottir" from Flax007: West Coast, North Hill.

You can get more information on the launch event from the litfest website.

Something a bit special
Recently in the Beanphoto household, there has been much excitement about the impending birthday of Mrs Beanphoto's Grandad.

Next weekend, the grand old timer will reach the remarkable age of 100!

Later in the year we shall be meeting up to celebrate this remarkable milestone, but my part in the preparations was to produce a special birthday card - so here it is!

I cannot let it go unmentioned that I had some excellent art direction from one of the great man's great grandchildren - me own little fella Archie!

And if anyone out there is interested I'm always happy to take on commissions for your own celebration cards!
