The luthier

Mike Watson came round this morning
with a violin he made,
which is not unreasonable,
as he's a violin maker.


now, making violins, there's a thing,
fiddly things violins.

not dancing


as you can see not a dancer in sight, nor glimpse of African mountains. However, it has to said that the dancers were all behind me - I took this on Formby beach during the shoot.

Kilimanjaro is the tallest mountain in Africa and is a stratovolcano, with three cones: Shira, 3962m. Mawenzi, 5149m. and Kibo, the highest, 5895m.


It was first climbed by a European, Hans Mayer of Germany, after two failed attempts in 1887 and 1888, on 5th October 1889, with professional climber Ludwig Purtscheller of Austria and guide Yoanas Kinyala Lauwo of Tanzania.

Photographs of random barbers No14

well not entirely random [and not No.14 either] this is the barber shop across the road from the mill where my studio used to be.


Apparently, according to Pete-the-Barber, there's been a barber's shop on this spot since the early 18th century. And in those days you could pop in for a short back and sides and get your leg amputated into the same bargain. Not sure they did short back and sides in the early 18th century - have to ask Rebecca...
