  1. Any Good New Years Resolutions?

    About 10 days ago, I decided a good start to 2018 (despite it being mid-February at the time) would be to promise myself an hour a day in heels. The notion was it would 'keep my ankles supple", and give me some much needed exercise. Days achieved so far ..... 1.
  2. Something special

    Ummm. no longer I fear .... Rumour was, she'd had a bunion repaired/straightened, but that's been denied. Full article >> here << Apparently, it's a "stress fracture". Being the Daily Mail, the article could be completely made up though.
  3. Photo's ..... The Big Question.

    Todays portrait gig went okay - ish. I got the pictures I was after anyway, though I would have preferred more in focus. Too much laughing had people moving around, and light levels meant slow shutter speeds and largish apertures. My Nikon lens and MFT sensor was good enough to count eyelashes and open pores on noses if did my bit. More light would have had even more detail visible, as I could have used slightly smaller apertures and had greater depth of field. Ho-hum. Despite (everyone) being told to wear plain dark tops, two men had large logo's on their T-shorts, one women had a multi-coloured top and the remaining woman and girl had check shirts on. The latter hadn't washed her hair either, and taking a photo of her would not have worked. (It would have looked so bad I would not have been given a second attempt.) Although it was all good-hearted and everyone helped holding onto the background and hair rim light source (a torch), everyone complained about holding these in the air. I have everything needed to remedy this (full studio background system) but it wasn't worth taking it all for what was supposed to be a short session. My priority is acquiring at least one electronic light source compatible with my digital camera. Money money money.

    Not Celine, but these looked so high I thought they warranted being shown here:
  5. "Last minute" meeting around the UK?

    Well, you are entitled to your view. Having done the things he has done, he is no lover of women. It's like saying a rapist likes women - of course he does, in the same way a great white likes seals. He treats women as chattels with less respect than most would show an old pair of trousers. He's an egotistic bigot, with delusion of grandeur with narcissism in every fibre of his body. Yes he 'fancies' women, I didn't suggest there was anything wrong with his ability to get sexually aroused. The difference between him and most other men, is that he believes his (assumed wealth) should have women walking naked toward him at every chance they have.

    Goodo. You do know you live in Britain don't you, where people are much too polite to comment on anything that might cause offence? This is especially true of people who might meet you again (but isn't exclusive to them.) Wear them in front of children (4-6 years) because they aren't aware of social etiquette and comments just fall from their lips.

    And I think he qualifies. No-one could be as disrespectful as he has been, and not been a misogynist, which is why I used the term.

    Rumours about me being a lizard (care of David Icke) are completely unfounded ..... 'croak'.
  9. "Last minute" meeting around the UK?

    From most women, I would have thought it most likely produced the same result? At least now he's been 'outed' as something of a misogynistic sex-pest. Safe journey, and take care.

    I hope you are right. In these situations, I'm usually given a square metre of space in some dark corner. There is a conservatory, but it's more of a greenhouse really, and unheated. I have visions of teeth chattering, and skin tones gradually turning bluer - including mine. Worst case scenario, I have to do them again when it's warmer.

    I did think of another, well two. But as you rightly say, 'tramp' does seem to be quite a harsh term of derision and as such, unlikely to be used as the name of a perfume range. That said, I suspect the term has been hijacked since the 1930's and the musical the song was taken from. From comments I've read, the lyrics are about irony, in that the singer is defending the "Lady's" honour. although her (wealthy but worthless peers) refer to her as a 'tramp' (street urchin). She gets too hungry for dinner at eight She like the theatre and never comes late She never bothers with people she hates That's why the lady is a tramp Doesn't like crap games with barons or earls Won't go to Harlem in ermine and pearls Won't dish the dirt with the rest of the girls That's why the lady is a tramp She like the free fresh wind in her hair, life without care She's broke and it's oke Hates California, it's cold and it's damp That's why the lady is a tramp She gets too hungry to wait for dinner at eight She loves the theatre, but never comes late She'd never bother with people she'd hate That's why the lady is a tramp She'll have no crap games with sharpies and frogs And she won't go to Harlem in Lincolns or Fords And she won't dish the dirt with the rest of the broads That's why the lady is a tramp She loves the free fresh wind in her hair Life without care. She's broke but it's oke Hates California, it's so cold and so damp That's why the lady. that's why the lady That's why the lady is a tramp´╗┐ In that scenario, the lady is no street-living pauper, but an honourable woman. Social history anyone?

    Tomorrow, Saturday, I'm doing some family portraits tomorrow, and not just my family. Unusually, I shall have to use natural light, and a single reflector. I've told all those involved (me plus 5 others) I'm testing out a lens (Nikon 50mm on MFT giving me a 100mm eqiv length). That's not a lie, but it only represents about 33% of what I hope to achieve. I've two images in mind, and I'd much rather be using strobes to achieve them. Trouble is, my digital camera is completely incompatible with the mono bloc I own. I've priced a replacement kit, but it's not been bought. (Can't decide what to buy at the moment.) Natural light will have to do.
  13. "Last minute" meeting around the UK?

    Just back in from a wander, and it's getting VERY cold outside despite the absence of any air movement of note. I've a visit to the West End pencilled in for Sunday, but I may have to give it a miss. I no longer own clothing that would allow me to tolerate sub-zero temperatures for anything longer than a few minutes. Just like my cat, if it's wet and windy outside, I'm staying inside... Mrs Freddy is off for a couple of days soon, so I might get some walking (wearing heels) in then. I could go to Milton Keynes, but parking is either expensive (parking close to the shops) or a long walk (especially in adverse weather) and they shut at 5pm. I've got an early start tomorrow, so won't want an early start Sunday too. Rather looks like London has the only 'civilised' Sunday opening hours, 12-6pm. Everywhere else is 11am to 5pm. Ho hum.

    Well, not in America anyway....
  15. "Last minute" meeting around the UK?

    In that range, my preferred smell, is 'floozy'.
