Skeletons on Holiday meet Fox on Windowsill

Up and coming London-based band Skeletons on Holiday recently used one of my photos as the cover artwork for their new double A-side single 'Night of the Long Knives/Silence is Broken.

You can listen to it here.

For camera nerds, the photo was taken using a Diana F+ camera and double-exposed. For location nerds, it was taken at Columbia Road Flower Market. Amazingly, I actually got permission from the man dressed as a fox to use this photo for the single as he was looking at something else on my Flickr account, found himself on there, and got in touch with me.

The Most Expensive Picture

I recently paid to have my photo 'Fish Kiss' included on the home page of The Most Expensive Picture (and fortunately quite early on in the project). It remained there for about two precious hours before someone paid a buck more than me to shunt it off.

I'm a sucker for the kind of projects I wish I'd thought of myself (and actually been motivated enough to put together) - good luck to them!
