One of my books was nominated but didn't win (because the awesome "A Monster Calls" won EVERYTHING, deservedly) and I was there to have tiny cakes and be interviewed by children.
A good opportunity to practise my photography skills, I figured... Here you go:
|Hey Ben! I found the close-up lens! No don't look! Just be natural!|
|The Barbican serves EXTREMELY SMALL CAKES. I took several away in my handbag.|
|After the ceremony everyone relaxed in the greenhouse.|
|David is happy because Walker Books totally dominated the awards.|
Or maybe it's to do with his hat.
|Hello, official photographer!|
|Looking for signatures, and people to interview.|
|Happiness all around.|
There's a second roll which I haven't had developed yet.
Next thing I need: anti static dust wipes for my scanner. WHERE IS IT ALL COMING FROM???
I just got the second roll developed... the light wasn't as good any more, and I didn't have a tripod, so it's all a bit meh. But I like this one:
|Tea and cake at the Barbican|
