James McGonagal & the Aquadome: A Day in the Life


Ignore the confusing title.  Just over a year and a half in the life of a band is a long time.  Its a long time for a guy with a camera too.  This post looks at exactly that – January 2010 thru to August 2011. Charting the rise to ‘fame’ of James Mackenzie and the ever changing thing that is the Aquascene using the photos Ive taken over that time taking in various lineup changes, events and festivals.  It also charts the history of James’ beard/facial hair shennanigans – not always pretty but always entertaining.  Not much else to say on this one, hopefully the pictures speak for themselves.  Enjoy  🙂
