You're Beautiful, Woman event. I didn't get to shop. :-(

To be chosen for a job is a blessing. To get asked back by a previous client, is a blessing on a blessing. So when I was asked back to cover the You're Beautiful, Woman (YBW) event, I was very happy.

The event is aims at a nice relaxed environment to celebrate the beauty of black women in all it's forms while offering health, beauty and business advice. The organisers once again put on a great show and ran a tight ship.

They was a market place with many people showing their fantastic products. If I wasn't working, I would have gone shopping!

Then there were the seminars. They were very educational while keeping it light hearted. For some of the discussions, I would have loved to throw in a couple of comments! :-) But again, I was stopped by the fact that I was working. On the other hand, if I wasn't working, I wouldn't have had the privilege to event hear the discussions. Oh the balance of the universe!

For a photographer that doesn't normally do events, I had great fun. Many of the speakers were great. I managed to chat to a few of them after their talks, and they really did seem like great people rather than your average sales person just selling. I would definitely like to keep in contact.

So to everyone I met on that day, it was an absolute pleasure!

Oh no they didn't! Damn. They did.

Hello all,

A quick apology. Some of you may have found that parts of my website were unavailable recently. For this I apologise. As it turns out, some deviant miscreants decided to attack the group that hold some of my pages. A denial of service (DoS) attack if you're seeking detail. What this means is that while the website was actually still functioning, an overload of traffic meant it could not be reached - kinda like very bad rush hour bringing roads to a standstill.

Now the website is up and running. I have employed the Shadow Minister to investigate the technological criminality.

For you, dear reader, normal service resumes!

Listening to the amazing 30 Seconds To Mars reinterpretation of Kanye West's Stronger (BBC Live Lounge), apart from being totally bowled over, I was reminded of how the same words can take on a completely different meaning by virtue of presentation.

Along the same lines, I am going through a phase of changing around my blog and website. Starting with the colour scheme. I would say check it out after the refurbishment, but to be honest, I plan to refurbish at least once a year. Probably twice. So just check it out to see what's changed!

The first thing that's changed is the email subscription over on the right. Now, if you subscribe by email, you will get notified of blog entries. It makes it easier for me to keep you informed and for you to save time. Though I'm sure you were checking out the latest and greatest imagery on my site anyway. :-)

Oh, and all comments welcome! Shoot me a line. I can't promise to please everyone, but I can promise to listen.

I reserve the right to come up with a new idea!

Sometimes looking again gives you a different idea about presentation.
