Goodbye Ken

I was sad to hear of the Death of  Ken Russell, I first photographed Ken it the 70's when he was shooting "Savage Messiah" in the Abbey Church Yard just outside the family shop.
He had turned Shores Shoe Shop (later Binks Restaurant and soon to be the Roman Baths Cafe) into the Lartigue Gallery.
Here he is With  Dorothy Tutin 
who played Sophie Brzeska
Then in 2004 I photographed 
Ken at the Priory Hotel.

Walk quietly and carry a crowbar.

The terrible crash on the M5 reminded my that after 20 years working for newspapers I have photographed a number of crashes.
But since I parking my precious Lotus Europa upside down near Newton Abbot nearly 40 years ago.
I realised the importance of have to right stuff in the car to rescue trapped drivers.
Though the standard kit for photographers includes the florescent jacket (always useful if you have to change a Tyre at night) I also carry a full size crowbar.
One of the first thing fire crews do in a car crash is open the bonnet and disconnect the battery to prevent fire.
Though one day I may be stopped for going equipped for burglary I think its worth the risk.
