Beards & Features 76

Journal Entry: Fri Feb 10, 2012, 4:08 AM

Well It's been a rather slow start to the year so far…

Apart from a quick visit from Pinkerbell and Mark Varley last month and the ensuing shoot I think the most creative thing I've done this year is grow a beard.
I have subsequently decided that permanent face hair is greatly over-rated.  All it's done is make me look 10 years older and remind me how grey I'm going. And instead of a new air of gravitas it's been attracting comments from friends such as "Oh, so you've finally given up then?" and "scruffy bastard"
I intend to persevere for the time being but something else that's rapidly become apparent is that a beard will not be a lot of fun come summer time. (Though that is admittedly a long way off – it's snowing at the moment)
I think I'll have to put up a new ID photo and give everyone a chuckle
Anyway, Congratulations are in order for Pinkerbell :iconpinkerbell2: on her well-deserved DD yesterday

I was lucky enough to be at the shoot when this was taken and saw the amount of planning and effort needed to put together this spectacular image in what was a very difficult location setting
So well done Heather and Mr Varley. (I heard you were involved somewhere along the line mate ;) =p)

Beards are great time savers, although they do add about ten years and have the odd gray patch. Mine's no fun in summer, though. It comes off long before then.

So, when do we get to see? ;)
