I guess you might be getting a bit fed up with sort of shot and I know staging it indoors against a black b/g is not everyone's cup of tea, but I like the challenge of doing them and recording the delicate pastel shades as accurately as I can.

Details: see EXIF

My thanks to all who had a look at "The Grey Man".......your interest is greatly appreciated.

Ronnie.
