Spaceship London 🚀

Proud of and excited for this one — Emily Denton opens for @arcaneroots tonight and tomorrow night (in Manchester and London, respectively) and performs with them on the rest of what is now their final tour.

Emily has fought hard for every bit of progress in her musical career, and it’s been so good to be part of it over the last few years. Her next single is also nearing completion, and it’s an ear worm. Keep an eye on @emdmusic for news...

P.S. If anyone from @hoxtonhall can get me into the show tomorrow, that would be ace (it was sold out before Emily was asked to open, so no spare tickets for the artists!)

🍂

Testing a prototype lens from @shotonreflex — while I’m eagerly looking forward to getting my hands on their camera, this is a great chance to see the level of materials and build quality they’re aiming for. The lens is a manual 40mm f/1.8 (my copy is for E-Mount, so I’m using it on my Sony A7RII), the aperture ring can be de-clicked with a switch (great for video use), and so far I’m really enjoying the character of the images it produces. This shot was at f/2.8, 1/250, and 200ISO. More on my Story from yesterday, and more as I continue to play...

I’ve barely shared any film scans from my two months in Australia and New Zealand at the end of last year, nor from my trip around the American Southwest last summer, or many other trips in the last few years — the last 12-18 months have felt like they’ve gotten away from me in many ways, without enough time for reflection, contemplation, relaxation, or any of the other ‘tions’ which our minds and bodies need so very much, let alone time to sift through thousands of film scans with a clear head.

Time is still a thing I’m learning to work with, constantly fighting the urge — no, the need — to tackle as many things as possible, to spend time with people who matter, and to figure out what the hell I want to be doing with my life before it disappears in a blink.

As my time living in London comes to a close, I’m making time to at least look back on the people, places, and experiences that have filled the positive moments of these last few years. The highs have been some of my favourites; the lows, some of my worst. So many things already ahead of me that my calendar already feels full until March (it isn’t, but I’m excitedly mapping out plans that take me into the Spring), and I’m both excited and exhausted by all the potential activity and travel.

So, here’s a shot from one of the most amazing sunrises I’ve ever seen, on Australia’s South Coast last December while on a quick road trip with @chaiwalla. Here’s to more mornings like that, and even more adventures.
