In 2009, I launched a company that makes business software for photographers, and now that company is so successful that I've regretfully had to put my photography business on hold indefinitely. You can find out more about this change on my blog.

If you're looking for a photographer, I'm still in touch with many amazing photographers and would be delighted to recommend them to you if you contact me.

Finally, Magdalene Street was closed off for the Silents in the Streets event, with a series of silent films being screened on a set of screens running the length of the street.

The first screen to start showing films attracted a big crowd on Quayside:

After a few technical hitches were sorted out, the main screen at the top of Magdalene Street started its programme with a Harold Lloyd silent comedy accompanied by festival regular Neil Brand:
