While in England I didn’t fondle the crown jewels at the Tower of London, watch Will and Kate parade their baby bump around Windsor Castle, hear Big Ben ring at noon, see the sunrise at Stonehenge (although I did have quite the adventure there 2 years ago), attend a church service at Westminster Abbey, see the changing of the guards at Buckingham Palace, or have tea the Queen …. So don’t even bother asking.
What I did see in the past 3 weeks was more miles of motorways, A roads, B roads, and teeny tiny country roads than the average Brit has seen in their entire life. Here’s what the UK looks like through the windshield of a big power-hogging right hand drive Vanny.

I was just reminded today that I had some un-posted photos kicking around from last month when our pal Jon Wilson joined Miss Quincy & Tyler Toews onstage for an electric Uppingham reunion (at Don Paddy’s). Cheers Jon and here’s to next year’s electric reunion!
The photos below are from the epic sword Battle of Stonehenge.

Sometimes when all you’ve been photographing for months are music related subjects you go for a stroll up Primrose Hill in London, England and find yourself uncontrollably & ravenously stalking cute old men, children, and puppies with your camera.
Since first hearing their record Samurai last year I’ve been scheming the many ways I could bring them to Canada so I could see them live … but on the eve of heading home from the UK last week I was finally able to see them perform (at what would probably be my favorite pub if I lived in Brighton - The Greys).
