    So, what did YOU do while we were down?

    We had a couple of kids pop in to play with my youngest ... so what a great opportunity to put some of my school-of-portraiture learned stuff to the test

    ...you mean AFTER stressing that I'd broken something?
    oh okay well then I cleaned up the detritus from our fashionista having 19 others just like her over last night to celebrate that they are now all 18 & are allowed to drink


    Lovely series to share with us - #2 and #4 are my favourites this time

    Models like that could almost make me go back into portraiture, after 52 years.

    Nice portraits (as usual )
    I think I like #4 best.

    But, you better be careful, Colin, or all parents in the neighbourhood will send their kids to play with yours (after checking you are in).

    Fixed the central heating and watched the Bourne Ultimatum on TV tuner and wondered why CiC wasn't here.

    But it's OK, I blamed my son because he said, and I quote; "Come and fix the central heating, the forums will still be there later" and they weren't!!!!

    LOL - waaaaay too late for that!

    When I did my "Death by Roses" shot I printed it on a canvas and gave it to the mum as a surprise. The surprise was on me though when she said she'd already seen it! I thought "how the heck can she have already seen it - I only did it a couple of hours ago" - up I'd already up-loaded it to the website, and Mum had been online waiting ... !

    Well yes, but I didn't want to correct Kay.

    If a man speaks - but no woman hears him - is he still wrong?

    I slipped in to a state of gloom and despondency. Kicked the cat, shouted at the kids then tried to pat my head and rub my tummy. After 2 minutes amusement with that I thought it best to do something useful.....how many Malteasers can you get in your mouth without crunching eh? After being reprimanded for stealing the kids sweets I went into the street and kicked a tin can about and had an irresistible urge to buy a bottle of cheap cider and kick the bus shelter in. Then it came to me..holy orders! No that would never work..nuns are wearing there skirts a tad long this year. But there is life after CiC so I fired up the old Mac went to POTN and had a damn good laugh at people agonising over why they can't be good togs without a 70-200mm f/2.8. Am I a bad person?

    Colin, I think your last shot of Skylah is a cracker

    So where are the pictures of the nuns then?
    ... or hasn't your 70-200mm f2.8 arrrived yet

    (The only bit I believe is the Malteasers)

    while we were down...

    Edited and printed photos, watched a terrible movie (You Don't Mess With the Zohan), prepared my equipment for another day.

    That could be a bad habit for you to get into (get it? get it?)

    But there is life after CiC so I fired up the old Mac went to POTN and had a damn good laugh at people agonising over why they can't be good togs without a 70-200mm f/2.8.
    I do that occasionally on my old stomping ground ... same people still complaining about the same things and still giving poor advice. Can't say I miss it one little bit.

    Colin, I think your last shot of Skylah is a cracker
    Thanks Steve,

    I was lucky to get 4 keepers out of it as they were quite shy. It was as much a test of my pocket wizards to be honest ... I've had some REALLY weird issues with them; some of which was my fault, and some I really don't understand (like the TT1 firing slaves at random whilst the shutter was open for a multi-minute exposure, even after the TT1 was switched off!).
