"My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding" Weekend Away

Just got back from a great weekend (Thurs-Sun) down at my brothers in Basingstoke, we never stopped Thursday night me and Adam went to see My brothers band reherse in a scout hut this gave me a chance to try my D700 at high iso setting and I am more than pleased with the results (images below). These where taken at 2000iso !! using my Nikon 24-70 f2.8, Tamron 70-200 f2.8 and also my Sigma 12-24mm.
On the Friday we just had a chilled day the Ladies where watching an episode of  "My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding" (at least it looked like that anyway) all day on the telly, so we had a walk round Basingstoke town to get out of the way !!.
Saturday I was going to a meet up with some good friends from the world of stock photography and illustrations, Adam and my brother Keith tagged along, met up with PZ, Andrea, Ayesha, Vicky, Roberto, Alex, Michael and Arnd (all the way from Germany) We had a great time from start to finish and ended up at Billy Brags mass busk on the South Bank where my Brother had his pic took by me with Furgal Sharky (The undertones if you remember them !!). The day whent by far too fast !!.
Saturday night and me and Keith whent off to the Anvil in Basingstock to see Bellowhead in concert (google them please they are a really great folky group) ....... what a fantastic concert one hell of a great band to see live :-)
