This time it's Autumn 2012 - Including some Halloween style fun with Fleur, mucking about on a Natuzzi sofa in the middle of a vintage shop, Marla's first ride on a steam train and the birth of my son Bertie!

In photography parlance we call this the Vernacular: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vernacular_photography.
So I thought I'd share with you, over a series of posts, my last year (and a bit) of life taken through the lenses of others.

So, following everyone else in the vintage community it seems, i've switched over to Bloglovin'
Annoyingly in order to 'claim' my blog as my own I have to put up this post with the following link embedded in it:

Looking around at the time It was clear to me that a large part of the scene was based around social dancing and dance weekenders, and I honestly think if you want to truly embrace a culture from the past then you need to embrace as many aspects of it as possible - back in the 40s everyone knew how to dance and it was a large part of socialising and the social scene.
Growing up in the 80s and 90s, partner dancing just didn't exist any more. Yes there were the odd occasions at a school dance when you had to embarrass yourself by nervously grabbing an available girl and slow dancing at the end of the night, but that was it, and let's face it, it was never a 'proper' dance, just slow stepping around whilst trying not to press yourself too close to the girl in question!
