Quote from: rascal houdi on February 28, 2014, 23:04:55 pmAs a few of you on here may know, I was a bit of a budding Rock photographer (strictly amateur) back in the day. A couple of months ago I started sorting through all my old negs & thought it was about time I got around to scanning them for posterity as they've been sitting there doing nothing for a quarter of a decade or more. So, I've started what is turning into a huge, time-consuming project but I think the results are worth it. The period covered is late '78 to '87 by which time it was getting harder to get the camera in without hassle. Mainly centred around the legendary Hammersmith Odeon with a few other London & provincial venues thrown in along with the odd festival. I've decided to do pretty much everything (in date order, earliest at bottom of page) so there will be some inevitable lapses in taste as we head into the mid-'80's. The aim is to upload on a weekly basis until I'm done. As I've only done around 15-20% so far this should be going for about a year. I've uploaded the first batch here:http://www.flickr.com/photos/118766505@N06/For those of you unfamiliar with Flickr, Photostream is the default page which gives you smaller versions of everything. Click on the desired image for full size + caption. I've also started organising them into sets (see 'Sets' tab) by artist which will come into it's own as I upload more by the same artists. Enjoy!
