In the 'real' world I've been taking some portraits of the ESRC Genomics Forum staff; the helpful pixies of coincidence were on my side because Ken is a Writer in Residence there and so I had to get one of him. After missing him in the office by mere minutes I caught up with him at the Book Festival, where I spend most of my time during August and he was often to be seen as well.
As the site was unattractively muddy I used the Spiegeltent.
It seemed terribly appropriate to have him looking amiable in what is effectively a pub. He had even suggested such a thing in the first place.
So it's not the picture it would have been but I rather like it and am glad to finally have him in my collection...
