Not strictly speaking a celebrity red carpet event but for those who took part in the 2012 Notting Hill Carnival in London over the Bank Holiday Weekend, these people were stars for a day and that in my book warrants an appearance on this website. They certainly put on a show like nothing else.
Colurful, vibrant, energetic, vibing, spectacular and not forgetting LOUD are just some of the words that spring to mind! This is not red carpet this is Street Carpet and the carpet is urban tarmac.
Last time I was there was 1998 and was totally out of it (as in plastered) but do remember dancing like a mad thing actually in the parade at some stage. For some reason could only hear whistles and nothing else for a week afterwards. Had no camera with me at the time (seem to remember shooting with Nikon Film Cameras back then) and don’t really remember much else about Notting Hill Carnival 1998?. It was that good…….. but do remember vowing “NEVER AGAIN” and here I am back 14 years later and SOBER.

Some photos from the London 2012 Olympic Torch Relay that took place on Thursday 26 July 2012 throughout Central London. The Olympic Flame passed through the White City, Shepherds Bush and Holland Park Area. Photos taken by yours truly who just happened to be in the BBC ish area at the time. I’m around but not as we know it?
Congratulations to Lizzie Armitstead for claiming the first medal for Team GB in the Women’s Olympic Cycle Road Race who got Silver in a blinding performance and Rebecca Adlington who got Bronze in the 400m Women’s Freestyle Event on Sunday.
