Twilight

Friday night we went down to V&A museum for one of their Friday Late events, this month’s theme being Twilight. Brilliant night, I’m sure that we’ll be going along next month also.

What was it? In a nutshell the museum stayed open late, opened a bar complete with DJ in the main entrance area and got a bunch of Apple people along to show off their latest iLife and Aperture products. A few sets were available in front of which those attending could pose - a Parisian one for digicam and a grim forest scene (complete with wolves, big coats, leaves and a little bit of smoke) for the mega SLR on a tripod - the photos from which were then uploaded into a bunch of iMacs/Mac minis for editing before being printed for the lucky punter to take home. We didn’t end up queuing for a photo of our own, watching those who did was more than enough fun. Aperture was reserved for the pros in a space out the back in the statue gallery which looked kind of cool - all those Mac Pros and 30in screens amongst the marble busts.

Highlight of the night was the V&A itself, we’d yet to visit during the day and from the little taster on Friday night we headed straight back Saturday morning to explore the rest.


A new look for this site, a bit of a spur of the moment decision to change things around a little, this one’s much cleaner than the old. Dig a little deeper and there’s still some work to be done before its completely rolled out. Previous design archived for posterity on Flickr.
