I packed up my trusty camera and soon-to-be famous sketchbook in early February 2008 and headed to Bangor’s beautiful Victorian pier, following an emailed instruction to “meet us on the pier”. That message was sent by the excellent Siobhan Holt, editor of Seren, the student union magazine for Bangor University.
She had rounded up a posse of 15 students, who turned up for their photographs – I also got the chap who sells souvenirs on the pier to take part. The SOTMs had a romantic theme, as it was almost Valentine’s Day. During the trip I took what turned out to be one of my favourite SOTM images, with a lovely message too. Many thanks to Siobhan and the Bangor crew, and I got several mentions (on pages 2, 10, 11, 13) in Seren including a double page spread.
