Swindon Big Screen and my photos

Hi Guys,

This post is a bit of indulgence rather than photojournalism. Lots and lots of my images are now being screened on The Big Screen at Wharf Green here in Swindon. These images don’t do it justice. I am/was well impressed when seeing my images displayed on such a huge screen. Interestingly they are not even hi res copies, just the normal low res stuff used on the web and yet it looks really good. More and more of my work will be shown up on the screen so please look out for them. In fact more and more of my work is going to be displayed around Swindon in the next few months. So please feel free to give me feedback. Good or bad.

Many thanks for looking.

Swindon, how it marks the Funeral of Margaret Thatcher a piece of history.

So, this is how Swindon marks a historic event. I for one am very disappointed in the fact that there was nowhere in the Town Centre to watch the funeral of Margaret Thatcher. Now this is absolutely nothing to do with any political leanings I may or may not hold, it is about an event in history and as you can see by these two photos taken shortly after ten o’ clock this morning. Which is when the funeral was taking place in London.
The Big Screen was not showing the news as it usually does and only had an advert on it for an art event that was not due to start till 11.30 so in my mind they could have shown the funeral on the big screen. Now those of you who follow my twitter will have noticed that I did question inSwindon about it and there only response (both on Twitter and by phone) was oh it wasnt planned to show it!!!!!
I also took the time to talk to several people in Wharf Green and they like me would like to have watched the funeral on the Big Screen and were as equally disappointed as I am.

As someone who likes and supports Swindon I just feel a little let down by the town on this occasion.

What do other people think?????
