Glastonbury Festival 2014

Glastonbury Festival 2014

Glastonbury Festival needs no introduction. Everyone has heard of Glastonbury and everyone wants a ticket. Nobody wants to miss out on the chance to spend five hedonistic days partying, come rain or mud, on the famous Worthy Farm.

Glastonbury Festival 2014 sold out in record time (one hour and twenty-seven minutes if you must know) back in October 2013.

With more than a million people registered for the festival and only 120,000 tickets available, I’d say I was lucky to get my hands on a ticket.

I decided to take my compact camera rather than my DSLR so I could balance shooting some photography with the freedom to let loose and enjoy the festival.

This Is Brighton

This Is Brighton

I guess that I don’t really need to point out the irony of visiting a seaside city such as Brighton while on a week-long holiday that’s main purpose was to “get away from it all”. There are, after all, many similarities between Brighton and my usual surroundings of Blackpool and the Fylde Coast.

In fact, most of this recent holiday was based in central London but I needed at least one day spent in familiar surroundings. It’s becoming increasingly apparent that I’m incapable of resisting the allure of the seaside. I’ve only visited once before, ten years ago at the age of 19, and that was for an interview to study on the photography degree at the University of Brighton.

BLESMA Residents

BLESMA is a national charity for limbless serving and ex service men and women and their dependants and widows. I often pass-by on my way to work and I’ve always thought it’d be great to shoot a photography project there to show my support. It’s important to be reminded of these people in our society and to celebrate who they are and what they represent.

Street Photography In Belgium

Street Photography In Belgium By Yannick Dixon

Did you know that I went to Belgium for a weekend break with my family in December last year?

Probably not, as I’ve only just got round to sharing my photographs from the trip. If you’re a regular reader of my blog you may recall that I went on holiday to Marrakech in December 2010 for my Mum’s fiftieth birthday.

Well for my Mum’s fifty-first birthday we went to Ghent in Belgium to see where my Mum had lived during her younger days.
