Okay so I got a little behind in my photographic duties. First of all I need to give a HUGE thanks to David of LONDON COUNTRY TOURS. He was awesome. Of course I kind of made him look like an axe murderer here but he is very nice and he was responsible for my first cream tea.
The photo below is now applied directly to my stomach, thighs and upper arms...
So besides Stonehenge David took us to Avebury...
And then he had me stand beside the stone to give you a sense of the scale...
So then? It was Monday morning and what can I say...The photographer started out fine under my direction...
He dutifully shot photos from bookstore to bookstore down Charing Cross Road...
So I thought I could allow him some freedom. You know. Let him work independently.
I was in the green room with the other authors. We did a sound check, were interviewed by the BBC, we took our places...was I able to get a photograph of me reading? Of me sitting with all the other shortlisted authors? Of me next to Rose Tremaine?
Weelll it's like this. Give an architect a camera unsupervised and this is what you get:
"Where are the photos of me reading?" I asked.
"Where are the photos of me talking to Charlotte Mendelson and Linda Huston?" I inquired.
ANSWER: "uh I didn't want the flash to bother you."
To the MOON Alice!
