Well, after the success of last week's Zombie Wedding, I had a busy week of just going along to things and shooting photographs for the fun of it.
The big event on Tuesday night was Nightwalk SS2013. Glasgow's biggest and best catwalk show did not disappoint, showing some old and new names and their latest collections. I like Nightwalk, it provides a window into the more established designers, whilst also giving a chance for some of the newer ones to show what they can do. This means that it can veer between classic couture and offbeat student whackiness from one collection to the next. Wannabe princesses seem to be coming into vogue this summer with the collections from NLM Design and Obscure Couture, but there were plenty of other options there (though not for the male of the species).
Wednesday night was a much more modest affair. A local charity show for the town twinning assosciation in Largs. I attended because my wife had been invited to walk in the show. So I was there as regular audience and just took a snap or two with a point and click camera, just like any other audience member. It felt quite strange not being stuck behind the wheel of an SLR camera.
Thursday was a night at home, working on the photos from Nightwalk and generally vegetating.
Friday I dived up to Hampden and the Clydebank college makeup show. Another catalogue of the beauty, the bizarre and the downright macabre. Some very talented makeup artists showing their stage/movie makeup skills to the wider world.
So that's May started then. A wee ceremony only wedding this morning, leaving me an afternoon free to catch up on Iron Man at the cinema
