The clouds looked like they might "co-operate" tonight, so I rounded up the kids - chucked a bunch of gear in the car - and headed off to a memorial statue to Sir Ernest Lord Rutherford (who was born just a few hundred metres away from where I live).
I'd planned on just shooting the kids, but found an "old" friend of the family, Emma waiting for someone there. It had been a while since I'd said anything more than a quick "Hi" to her in passing - so it was great to discover a little of the great young lady that she's growing in to - and she seemed totally happy and relaxed posing for the camera.

Second image taken with Canon 1Ds3 & EF85/F1.2L @ F2.4. Same lighting - 1/100th @ ISO 50 - Manual Exposure, plus a portable generator & electric fan for the "hair in the breeze" look.
