A lesson: New Year in Lewes

Hey everyone and Happy New Year! It’s taken me a while, but here it comes, New Year in Lewes.

Right here cometh the lesson, what you will need:

1-     Your old local pub (The Volunteer, Lewes)

2-     A great band (Hendrix tribute band, Dolly Dagger)

3-     Fancy Dress / Costumes (Robin Hood, Gypsy Pirate, Pixie and Popeye among others)

4-     Your Canon EOS 400D and brand new Diana F+ cameras

5-     Alcohol

6-     Lastly, and most importantly, some of the most interesting characters Lewes has to offer, including your beautiful girlfriend!

Well, to be honest I think I’m just going to let the pictures tell the story from here on in! Enjoy!
