After a lengthy absence from the live music scene I have photographed two gigs this week. The first was Noah & The Whale at the Brudenell Social Club for my old agency www.retna.co.uk The beard count, although much higher than anything from ‘my day’ was lower than I had anticipated. I have my daughter Alice to thank for making me aware of NATW, who like so many of their contemporaries successfully convey a sense that they hail from Washington State or somesuch when in fact they emerged somewhat closer to home, in this case Twickenham. The venue was a delight, the crowd appreciative and not being kicked out after the first three songs meant that I could snap away a little longer and enjoy the tunes. Bonus.

It was the first outing for my New Favourite Lens the Nikkor 85mm f1.8 ~  a  joy to use.

The second gig was by far the most nervous I’ve been before the musician took to the stage. Fears were groundless he blew them away.
