771st post-IAN’S TRAVELBLOG ADVENTURES/TIGLETVERSE PHOTOGRAPHY Update

So I’ve not been blogging about much lately, think that should change- one thing I have been focusing on is a new CV/Resume, using LinkedIn as the template- So here’s what I put about ITA/TVP-

Travel and Event photography and videography. I have built up a diverse portfolio over seven years. Began with Hiking/outdoors and Nature photography and expanded to include a variety of events/exhibitions/Comic Cons/Wildlife and Urban cityscapes. Currently working on Christmas lights/Winterscapes 2 projects.

Autumn Events- SEPTEMBER 18 ROUNDUP

Firstly I went to the Guardians of the Galleries event in Wigan, snapping shots like a Hungry Hippo (the game, not the animal!) Paul Prescot and the team behind Bolton Comic Con did it again with a Con set in a market. The First mini-con of the autumn season saw me on the bus to Wigan, cos the trains were on strike.

Getting there wasn’t the problem, strolling round the Galleries was at times a bit of a squeeze, but enjoyable, doing a few mini shoots with the Wigan Ghostbusters, Buck Rogers and Twiki and so on.

Then, because of the Rail Strike, took a bus back to St. Helens and caught a bus to Liverpool, which actually didn’t take as long as I thought it would. I had been to the Bluecoat and begun the Biennial Art trail, as well as doing architectural shots of old buildings, so wandered round Pierhead, caught a few shots of the River Mersey, the Art Fair and then joined the gathering of Bring the Fire Project for their session.  After their performance on the steps of St. Georges Hall on Lightnight in May, I’ve been hoping to see Bring the Fire project in action again. I missed their last Fire session in Sefton Park, so knew I had to try and make an effort to see them again.

 

I got to do a bit of juggling, tried a couple of new tricks, and was a bit rusty (try very) but it was great just to have a go. I had just begun learning the basics about Twenty eight years ago, when a few people in Runcorn park did some fire juggling. I’ve never really progressed much. Then I got to see them rehearse as well as run a kid’s workshop, putting my efforts to shame.

Then finally it was Showtime.

 

Getting dark helped as the group lit their props up and performed their routines flawlessly. I also juggled two cameras filming and photographing, so that was interesting.

It was a good night. A few blurry pictures, but with fire the results are always intriquing.

 

Next was the Liverpool Pirate Festival at Albert Dock- Ahoy there Peri Parrott! This year I did spend more time there, following the Mermaid Parade and trying to get shots from different Angles (Special mention to the Doorman at Revolution Cuba bar for letting me stand on the wall!) Highlight of the day was the full-sized Parrot at The Maritime Museum as well as the insane amount of Pirate paraphernalia at With Love From Liverpool and Nauticalia shops!

 

Finally, I returned to Chester Comic Con for a second time, having missed 2017 (though I had gone to the promo shoot the week before, oddly enough!)

This was shockingly confusing as I walked round to the Racecourse Pavilion and it was empty! I didn’t know it had been moved into the centre of the Racecourse, so that was a bit of a discombobulating experience.

 

I did manage to get a few pictures, even one of me with the Ewoks! Peri Parrot made her first Convention appearance, along with Tig 2 and got to shoot with Order 66 and a few Heroes and villains!

Thanks to Stu, Damo and the gang for another delightfully fun day out!

I have also been shooting the Moon, half/full and early morning, so will have to start editing videos at some point. I’ve also been hiking round Woodhouse and Helsby Hill and along Cycleway Route 5 from Chester all the way to Connah’s Quay, so will have to get those edited as well- oh joy!

INFINITE WHONIVERSES 4TH ANNIVERSARY

IW 4TH ANNIVERSARY- YAY!!

Mr. Tiglet's Blog

IW55THIt occurred to me that I haven’t actually planned anything for the IW Fourth Anniversary this weekend; in fact this is a bit of a last-minute blogpost itself.

The story intended- THE ARTEFACT I’ve changed a few details of and may either be the 55th Special or Christmas story, Who knows?

So, the Series 5 finale is up next week- a couple of changes, but the end is the same as when I initially planned it for the end of 2016. So I am looking forward to presenting that next week- in the meantime, here’s the very first post from 2014-

HAPPY WHONIVERSARY!

Ian’s Travelblogs no more- Beyond 6th anniversary

tvp6aTigletverse Travel and Photography- update

I’ve been reading a bunch of old blogposts from 2011/2012. I did a lot of hiking back then, also writing up where I went to as well. That was before the video blogging, or Vlogging on Youtube.

I’ve never got the time these days, nor an organising principle to get myself, err, organised!

So, I merged both Tiglet’s Travels and ITA in 2016, creating Tigletverse Travel and Photography, with one Facebook page (please Like!) and not much up on Pinterest. BUT NOW ON FLICKR! With Wild Walks on the Welshside kicking off 2018- so far I have been to Wepre Park (twice), Flint Castle, Loggerheads, Llwyni ponds, Bailey Hill in Mold, Caergwrle Castle, Southport and a walk to Another Place for an Awesome sunset, Chester in the Snow and round St. George’s Hall for my Birthday and finally going round Spike Island in the fog one Monday morning, and that was all before Easter!

I have also been along the Bridgewater Canal- Preston Brook section, Etna Park with a bit of the Buckley Heritage Trail, Pex Hill and Blundell’s Hill after a job interview (which I didn’t get!) Liverpool Lightnight, including the performance by Bring the Fire Project. I also saw the Museum of the Moon, which is an artwork based on NASA photographs and seems to be on tour in several places at the same time. I have also taken a few pics of the real thing, along with Sun pictures, including New Brighton and West Kirby Marine Lake.

Event-wise, Wales Comic con was awesome, been to Liverpool museum and an amble round Chester on the Upton Scarecrow Trail.

I have been attempting to catch up on a mass of editing, of both photos but mainly videos, so hopefully will have caught up with those by the end of June, which will bring me to 500 videos, though the next episode of Dr. RRR’s Guide to the Whoniverses is going to be more complex than the Morbius one, so WHO knows when that’ll be completed!

So that’s it, that’s the big update for Spring and the Summer-so-far on the Hiking/Event front.

STAY GROOVY AND SMOOTHIE!

 

 

Events- CHESTER WRITERS @ CHESTER LITERATURE FESTIVAL 2017

cwa17bIf you go down to the Storyhouse in Chester tomorrow, then you’ll be in for A BIG SURPRISE, as the Teddy Bears picnic nursery rhyme goes.

It’s one more sleep til Xmas. Erh, nope, sorry, not quite! One more sleep til the Chester Writers Anthology debut at the Storyhouse is what I mean! Then I will take to the stage for the debut of ‘The Case of the Missing Mince Pies’. I had thought of reading it in the style of Tommy Cooper’s Hat Sketch, but that would be too confusing and I’ll never be able to pull it off anyway, so I will just have to read the story as it is written!

So it should be fun! Tickets are £5, including a copy of the Anthology and hopefully the weather won’t be too bad. The events on indoors anyway in the Garrett Theatre, so what the hey!

INFINITE TIGLETVERSES- COMING SOON!

itv2I’ve wanted to make some original stories/Films for a while now. It seems whenever I focus on Dr. Rrr/Infinite Whoniverses other things don’t get done- like the Photo/hiking updates

STORIES- They’re everywhere. But sometimes you have to go out and find them.

The good ones, the Best ones are the hardest to find. You have to go further and farther out to catch them.

This year, Infinite Tigletverses is boldly going places never been before, doing something completely different and being more ambitious than ever. Seeking Stories-

And no matter where it takes us,

We’re gonna find ‘em!!
