A sneak peek at Glastonbury Festival 2017 a week before the fun starts!

The Glastonbury Festival sign

This is mainly a photography post as there isn’t a great deal to say about it really! I had the opportunity to have a walk around the Glastonbury Festival site last night, so of course I took my camera with me! I also vlogged it, so when I’ve had chance to edit the footage, I’ll add that too. I’m pleased to report that the ground underfoot is very firm and the grass very green. It amazes me how much there is still to do in the next six days, but so much has happened in the last week, I’m sure they’ll manage it!….

If you’re going to Glastonbury Festival this year, then if you haven’t already, I’d advise you do a bit of practice walking! I walk the dog uphill twice a day, but my calves are killing me today after climbing up to the Glastonbury sign!

Well there we are! We only had about an hour and a half, so I think we managed to cover a good amount of the festival site in that time, but obviously there’s so much more to see. Keep a look out on my You Tube channel in the next couple of days for the video I took. This has really heightened my excitement and I cannot wait!

Addendum: Here’s the video! It’s part of my weekly vlog, so if you’re only interested in the Glastonbury bit, skip to 5:12.

What to do when your photos don’t match your Instagram! (A black and white photography project)
September 1, 2018
The use of Instagram means something different to different people, and I’ll write more about my feelings on that in another post, but briefly, I’ll tell you that my Instagram, @HelenHobden is fairly curated with some of my best photography included. However, whilst away in Connecticut, slouched on the hotel-room armchair, having a break from typing; I realised that the simple scene with my feet up on the arm would look great as a square-cropped photo in grainy high-contrast black and white….

Thank you Tori 🙂 Yes, it’s difficult to get your bearings when everything’s only half there!
