Today has and is going to be hectic. Oxfam stuff at 11am in the Student Union... I've got one or two photos that I'm really happy with. I don't think I can include one as I don't technically own them, and I don't think it is fair on the people that have taken part on the understanding that they are one in a million.
The campaign is to get the government to stop dealing arms to country's run by oppressive governments, those with child warriors and this sort of stuff. In honesty, I'm there mostly for the chance to take some photos, although it is obviously a good cause, and that doesn help. On a similar note, here's a photo I took on Wednesday outside the Union -- the university holds £1.4m of shares in arms companies and some students want rid of them. This time, I don't really agree with this... they do us, the students, a lot of good and selling them brings nobody any benefit (please click the image for the non-nastily-browser-resized version!)
I've just spent the last hour sewing my trousers back together after the incident on the train before my Sun interview. I've done a crap job, but it's good enough for tonight. After that I did some ironing! Wow. I almost forgot how this worked. The idea is: the iron is hot and it makes stuff go flat. Sounds easy, but it's not!
The white shirt actually looks ace... I've done a really good job, but my trousers are a little below par, thanks to having a really thick towel to iron through. Obviously you can't directly iron black trousers, otherwise they go all nasty and shiny (how ace is knowledge like this!?)
I have about fifteen minutes in which to get all tarted up for my departmental ball (there are other departments too, so it won't all be blokes!). I'm there in an official capacity... but an ace one. There will be myself, Samia and Rog and we're the photographers! Sounds like a good film to me.
It's a bit different though, as we get to charge a whopping £5 per photo. This is genius, there is potential to make quite a bit of dosh here, especially if we can find somewhere really cheap (that still meets our quality requirements, obviously) to print the photos. I think we'll be splitting all of it three ways, although I'm not sure.
Right, best get myself organised!
