Chris Shatner

Ever wondered what the old cast of Star Trek would look like with their faces schmooshed together into those of the new cast? Well, wonder no more!

Happy Royal Wedding Day.

William and Kate 29th April 2011

An abundance of footage, photos, news coverage and media to follow…

As promised! What a momentous day of pomp and ceremony as William and Kate became the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. After watching the footage, I feel very proud to be British on a day that went off without a hitch and had some very nice touches of flair and elegance that showed that these two, despite the titles and privilege, are just the same as us commoners. The beaming smile on Catherine’s face and the uncanny (Princess Diana) modest, humbling look on William’s showed they are just like you and me.

The whole day was wonderful but the highlights for me have to be the initial reaction of the crowd as the couple left Westminster Abbey, the emergence onto the balcony at Buckingham Palace with a couple of kisses, the thunderous fly by of WW2 bombers and the drive-by in the Aston Martin as the couple left Buckingham Palace complete with tailing balloons and William’s helicopter buddies giving a fly over from above. Great to see the country united and celebrating a wonderful day for Britain.

It should've been me!!

My New Venture

Recently I have been tending a stall at my local craft fair in an attempt to try to start a small business in Photography (www.pmcdphotography.com). The area I live in is steeped in history, with William Morris and Admiral Nelson being linked to the area. I remember going to Merton Abbey Mills craft fair as a child and always used to find it a great day out. I vividly remembering learning to walk on stilts (albeit child versions) and looking at all the intricate things that the artists had on display for sale.

Now I’m all grown up, I have my very own stall with a modest starting display of photographic prints for sale. I will be adding gradually to the stock  on offer, hoping to make calendars, cards and larger prints, but also making myself available for commissions, varying from family portraits to special events. More details to follow on this 🙂 For enquiries, click the link to my website above and leave your questions via the ‘contact’ page.

Going back to Merton Abbey, I just want to try to promote the venue as a whole as in these economic times of struggle, the market has seen a decline in footfall. It is such an amazing space, situated on the River Wandle (a tributary to the Thames), it features a working watermill, children’s theatre, lively bandstand and a good variety of stalls to peruse and experience. Don’t be afraid to come and have a chat with the stall holders, we’d be far happier to talk to you than sit quietly while you browse. We won’t bite!

If you know of Merton Abbey Mills, please do tell your friends and family, remind them it’s there and click the link below to find out more about what’s been going on and what’s coming up at London’s best kept secret market (Camden… pfsst!)
