‘September When it Comes’: If you’ve not heard Rosanne Cash singing this duet with her father, Johnny Cash, give it a go. It is touching and beautiful. And, strangely predictive, for Johnny died in September. Their voices are a glorious pairing, but it’s Johnny’s central solo that will make the hairs stand on your neck. His voice is fragile and wistful, but absolutely charged with emotion. One of my all-time favourite tracks.

Swirl

I photographed a wedding earlier this year, in a building with an internal balcony, so was able to use it it to get a high vantage point. I asked the bride and groom to stay still, and shouted to the guests to form a ring and dance around them while the band played. Slow shutter, tripod, and some luck!

Oh deer, I’m in a rut

No, not Scotland (although the rut is getting under way here). I do get to other places, sometimes.
