All the titles for photographs here are taken from songs on Everything But The Girl’s debut album, Eden (1984). It was a favourite of mine for most of the Eighties – it’s a potent cocktail of jazz sounds and post-punk attitude. You can listen to Each And Every One here. If you have ever had even a passing interest in EBTG, Tracey Thorn’s autobiography, Bedsit Disco Queen (Virago, 2013), is brilliant and should be on your reading list.

Right, I’m taking a short break to recharge my batteries and get some reading done. See you all soon.

Street Portrait (for and of Sara), 2012

Sara was walking along Wellington Street when I spotted her. So preoccupied was I that I walked past thinking “She would make a great street portrait.” It took me a little while (imagine turning a dreadnought around in a very small harbour), to leg it back after her and ask for a photograph. She was great about it and let me take a couple of shots. What an incredible outfit and a wonderful smile! Thanks, Sara! Hope you like your picture.
