My Defective Ear

A 366-day pursuit in personal portraiture, presented by nige.

The challenge: to photograph, and post to this moblog, a portrait shot of myself, every single day, over the next year. Apparently, it's much harder than it sounds...

Perhaps more challenging: that i don't enjoy seeing my phizog in a photo at the best of times, and knowing that i'm probably going to annoy the hell out of the moblog community in doing this. So, sincere apologies in advance for this undertaking, but i just can't help myself. I promise to try and be creative, so you won't have to look at my mug every day.

Anyone interested in joining me? I think i'm probably going to need the company...

ID week: Miss Moneypenny's membership card, circa 1997

Another membership card from a club i was hugely fond of. Miss Moneypenny's was held in Bonds, a small nightclub in the middle of an industrial estate in Birmingham, and as unsavoury as that sounds, it was the most amazing venue. Moneypenny's had the most outrageous dress and door policy than any other club i knew, so there were always lots of people who were turned away fuming, not least of all because they had made a special journey to get there, without anywhere else nearby to fall back on. Ouch.

Inside, the place was crazy every week. Think A Mad Tea Party meets The Oscars meets The Fifth Element, and you'll start to picture it. I've got some incredible memories of that place.

So, here endeth my ID week.

Do you have any photographic record of what sorts of things the dress-code entailed? :)
