Trans-Siberia Express 1973
by Geoff MacCormack
Heading back to London from Japan the long way, I'd only just acquired a Nikkormat camera which Japanese photographer Masayoshi Sukita got me (trade price); the attraction being its ease of use for a novice. It was my first decent camera. Not knowing the camera, I at least pride myself on getting the composition right. The other thing I love about this shot is that, although David clearly strikes a pose, the image is still unguarded and natural. David reciprocated by taking one of me in exactly the same spot. Believe me, mine's better.

Just suppose your Brilliant Pal said: “Will you join my band [The Spiders from Mars] and come on a tour? And would you mind awfully if we travelled [first class] by sea to New York, and then sailed from Los Angeles to San Francisco, Canada, Hawaii and on to Japan? And then from Siberia through Russia [Trans Siberian Express] to Moscow [for May Day Parade], Poland, East and West Germany, just in time for tea at the George V Hotel in Paris? Followed by a relaxing holiday in Rome, just to chill out? And then, just suppose, when you thought all the fun had finished, your Brilliant Pal said: “Would you mind being a dog [Diamond], And coming back to New York on an even better ship, eating caviar every Day and joining another band, then another band, helping out on a few albums [six], and generally hanging our and having the time of your life for a couple more years? Supposing all that happened ……. Wouldn’t it be fantastic to have kept a photo or two?
