They say (who ever they are), that the older you get the less sleep you need.
This seems to be the case with me, and for the last few years I’ve been suffering, or looking at it another way, blessed to be one of those people who can get by with very little sleep, and seem to be able to function quite normally with one or two hours sleep for a few days at a time.

This morning I had the pleasure to photograph the Remembrance Day Parade at Bridgend cenotaph for The Gem.
It’s an assignment I look forward to every year, as it’s a chance to meet up with many of my old friends from my days spent in the armed forces.
Today was a no exception, and it was brilliant to see Andy Painter, Kev Vause and Dean Reynolds, old mates from my days spent with the Harrier Force.
The fantastic weather brought out a huge crowd to remember and pay tribute to those who have fallen in conflict.

There’s one thing about my job that I really do love.
I never know what I’m going to be doing from one day to the next.
Such was the case this week when I was asked to photograph the inaugural youth meeting of Changing Union U.K.
Changing Union UK is a new initiative who’s aims are to support young people to develop their ideas, participate in debate and influence decisions on the future constitutional direction of Wales and the U.K, from varying powers in Wales to Scottish independence.

I suppose the it’s a bit of a special post today, as this is my 100th blog since creating my new WordPress site way back in January of this year.
I’ve been trying to write new material as often as I can, but this year has been really busy and keeping up with writing these post has had to take a bit of a back seat.

I had a brilliant evening photographing a charity event organised by Biomet Bridgend.
They held a charity auction at The Pelican In Her Piety (Public House), in Ogmore By Sea.
Three teams from around the region were challenged by the senior management of Biomet (Apprentice Style), to gather auction-able items and gifts, to be sold off to the highest bidder on the big night.
All proceeds are donated to Heronsbridge School in Bridgend, to help provide specialist equipment for the children who attend the school.
