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 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 )
I've had a few laziness-inspired mooches into the facial hair thing and I also was alarmed by the odd patches of grey, hmm, not for me either, though it does get more comfortable after three or four weeks, the itchy period before that usually drives me nuts!
Thanks for your patience on 'Isis day', it wasn't a great dark dank place to be mooching around waiting in on a summers day!
That was a great couple of days shooting at that particular site - totally enjoyed all of it And look at the great images that came out of it - Isis, Unshine, Inner Light ,We are all made of Stars - just to name a few - so all the stumbling around in the dark and bat crap was totally worth it mate
Thats one site i'd definately want to hit again this summer - its still got plenty of mileage in it.
Found it about a week or two ago. I think i just wanted some ZZtop in the background & found these flamin' gallahs. Unsurprisingly they also do ZZtop covers ("Eliminater" being an album ringing around my head a LOT lately).
Well as my one friend says 'studios are for rainy days' - you've got a lot more sunshine to take advantage of over there than here in the UK - I think i'd be out on location all the time if I was over there (btw i'm an aussie myself by birth)
