The Grimaldi Memorial Service 2011

Every year on the the first weekend in February, clowns from far and wide, attend a memorial service for the celebrated clown Joseph Grimaldi at Trinity Church, Dalston, London. I’ve been fascinated by Grimaldi since my first flat in Exmouth Market, London, was opposite to a property that Grimaldi had once lived in, some 200 years ago. I decided to go this year and get some images and took the family along. The whole service was delightful and we all enjoyed it, especially my son who loved seeing all the clowns. The service was even attended by the Speaker of the House of Commons, John Bercow MP and his wife Sally, who was pictured in an infamous photo this week.
Here are some of my images of the day and they were all taken on a Nikon D3S in low light.


A wedding photographer takes the plunge !

Here’s an utterly classic photography clip from you tube. I know that a wedding photographers job is difficult but this is simply hilarious. Enjoy and have a little bit of sympathy.

Funny Bus Stop

On a stroll in my lunch break today, I came across an amusing sight. The bus stop nearest my work had been made ” out of use ” by London buses, however only three yards away was the replacement bus stop ! I love photographing amusing sights and it tickled me all day. The bus passengers were all lined up at the replacement stop but there appeared little wrong with the normal one. Makes you wonder !
