This time last year I was gearing up to go to Glastonbury festival for a long weekend of fun. It was slap bang in the middle of wedding season and one of the only breaks I had over several crazy months of wedding after wedding after wedding, so I really ummed and ahhed over whether to take any camera at all as I really wanted to switch off completely. In the end I decided on a compromise and took an ancient entry-level DSLR with me (my old Canon 400D) and a cheapo 50mm prime lens. Not great kit, but small and crappy meant that I could shove it in my bag without it getting in the way or me worrying too much about it. To be honest I hardly got it out the whole time I was there – as suspected, it was lovely to just enjoy the experience without thinking about photographing it, but I couldn’t resist taking just a few. I didn’t post them at the time as I had too much else on, but I thought that since there is no Glastonbury this year, it would be nice to fill this year’s gap with a little tribute to last year’s festival – the weird and truly wonderful world that is Glastonbury. Can’t wait for the next one!
