Weekly Photo Challenge – Today Was A Good Day

This weeks photo challenge is titled Today Was A Good Day.  We are invited to show a series of photographs of something we love.

I just got home a couple of hours ago from my favourite festival of the year – Beautiful Days in Devon is the jewel in the crown of UK music festivals in my opinion.  The weather this weekend was foul but I had a great time with my wife, my son and his friends, my sister and her partner and my nephew.  Thats before I mention my extended festival family.

These shots hopefully show a glimpse of the madness that is UK summer festivals.  It’s nice when the weather is fine, but check out the kids making the most of the mud and rain.  There are some more shots here.

About The Sound of Summer

Hi, I am Alan. I live in Broadstone, Dorset with my wife, Shirley, my son, Ryan and two dogs called Bailey and Jasper. I have recently retired after working in the Armed Forces and in Public Service since 1977 so I now have a bit more time to do the things I love. Music is a huge part of my life and always has been. I have a broad taste in music and can find something to enjoy in most styles of music. I have always been attracted to music which has something to say, is outside the mainstream and is perhaps a bit rebellious. I guess my early influences were late 1970's Punk and new wave bands, especially those who came out of Northern Ireland where I grew up. I loved Stiff Little Fingers, The Undertones, Rudi, Starjets etc but also bands like The Ramones, The Clash, The Jam and so on. I like singer songwriters including Van Morrison, Springsteen, Neil Young & Bob Dylan and in recent years I have become more interested in folk and acoustic music but I also love the sort of high drive energetic Folk/Punk music delivered by bands like The Levellers, Leatherat, Ferocious Dog and many others who frequent the UK Festival scene. I have long since lost the desire to spend my holidays laying around in the sun and these days am much more likely to be found in a muddy field somewhere in the UK during the festival season.
