  I was photographing "The First Christmas", a play in Derby cathedral. During a particularly quiet section I dropped a lens cap.
  On a stone floor....in a cathedral....I might as well have dropped a dustbin lid for the noise it made!  :-[

I was at a protest meeting in Trafalgar Sq. and prior to the event starting I spotted a lady strumming on a guitar at the rear of the the set up. Joan Baez I thought as the face seemed familiar. So I shot round to where she was sitting and asked very politely, "May I take your photograph Miss Baez?" She smiled back at me and without a word posed with her head held back.
I thanked her profusely and went on my way, still no word from her.

That evening I said to my wife, "I took Joan Baez's picture today", "Let's have a look" she replied. When she saw it she said "You idiot, that's Julie Felix!"  :-[ :-[

1 body, 1 lens, 1 flash gun, 1 tripod, 1 cable release & 1 filter. Keeping it simple!
