I see all the blokes have their backs turned. I wonder why ???

Simple practical explanation, I would pick out people to photograph, and sometimes move them away from the crowd at the bar. Remember :bars', 'crowds'?

I can't help imagining them now, 15 years on...

When. I was compiling the shots I kept thinking the same. Are they mother's/wives, how would they think of their young fashion sense.

I photographed a lot of people at the time, who were totally plastered, what would they think?
The razor thin eyebrows... brrrrrr, never was a fan Grin
the unposed ones are much stronger imo, but perhaps this/these was/were part of the job

Yep, this was primarily part of the job. Oddly, all the stuff in the art/snaps debate was discarded most weeks as visually illiterate staff just stuck 'not blurred' stuff up there.

Her cup runneth over...

Thanks for the blog today, Phil. Doing well, and all your work. So many pictures that I couldn't find room for.

Any chance you could pop the single man in blue mask up walking past the red sign in lieu of one of the illuminated sign pics?

They might be embarrassed sometime in the future....and I remember when my daughter was 15 (though she does not look like this)..

They were Inna pub, so not 15. Since it's a 15 year old shot, the future is now.

I look at all those orange faced women with caterpillar eyebrows and fake lashes and wonder what they will think in years to come.

There was a fad in Rochdale for tanning injections. I thought colour balance was off one night, so PhotoShopped a batch, then noticed all the blokes bad gone blue.

Laughing at the white balance. I shall attack the blog forthwith.
