looks pretty good Paul - was gonna ask about that site and the http://allthefriendswecanget.com/ site but ya seemed busy... did you collect and mash those pics together? if so, maybe ya could throw one of nigel in? maybe not since he's an "occasional" obscura.. i like the font ya used and the camera clipart.. for some reason the forum here cuts off the side of the pic - but you can just click the photo to open the full one so..
nice job!

yeah i collected them all (hoping none of the websites i snatched from mind), a few are my own photos. but i looked long and far for a pic of nigel live! i could not find any that work - there are TWO on the official website, one is b&w, one is portrait. :/ you got any?

i actually designed that little "clip art" meself. thought i might focus more on the "camera" motif than the whole "obscura" thing. they are hardly obscure anymore.

as for allthefriendswecanget - i am still gonna do something with it. like you said, i've been busy. crazy busy. stuff is getting put off. mostly my projects as usual. my EP for instance, will NOT be finished on May 1. damn.

my plans for the site now are a bit different, with the recent closure of belleandsebastian.it, i think i'm going to turn allthefriends into a more general interest scottish[/UK?] indie music fan site - though camera obscura will still stay the headliner, the site won't be limited to blind following of just them.

that's the one on the official site. i tried to crop it into 4:3, didn't come out well enouf. might use the b&w and just stick in a spot where there's no color anyway.

Tryin' again...

This one drops the film grain as it fades to blurry color, and includes nigel (though he's obscured a bit...er...no pun intended)

You know my thoughts Paul Very Happy

Thats not a bad idea actually, A CO website in the main but also a haven for reccomendations/info about similar good bands.

Well, isn't that what this forum is anyway ?
