Award Shortlist   

And now for someone completely different.

By lifesnapper  
Hi all and many thanks for your lovely response to my previous upload, very much appreciated. Smile

And now for someone completely different. I spotted her choosing a potted plant from a local shop in the high street. After taking these shots we spoke about digital and film photography and digital and analog music and, the characteristics of brass instrument sounds. Well, what else would you talk about to a woman like this? Smile A very charming young lady and a pleasure to speak to.

All the best to all and enjoy your day,

the lead image is impressive.....wonder how she got the studs through the nose ridge.....must be painful and a constant headache!

Fabulous! I must get back to Rochester one day soon

And good to see she's got one of those mountaineering clip things ... I remember the hills of Rochester can get pretty steep at times

Also have to admire the symmetry of her nose rings and piercings. She clearly has a very Zen view of life ... or is that Feng Shui?

Either way a terrific set John, and the conversation sounds fun too

Thank heavens for individuality John! Love the images and like you say, she was so interesting to talk to. Only been to Rochester a couple of times but it so reminded me of Hebden Bridge.

Bang goes the award I was saving - you owe that girl John! Brass instruments - my husband played Flugel and Trumpet are you a brass bloke?

I do love the sax, trombone and trumpet, Kath but there are more than one way to play those instruments and not all are kind to my ear.Smile

Lovely set John. You really can't judge a book by it's cover.

Very fine set here John, she’s living her dream, boars claw is that around her neck? You could do a photo book with your Rochester characters, they’re very good to see.

Great set of images John and when I see this I was sure there was a little more waiting to get out.

The mod are only very minor changes which with more done with the light to lead the eye around the image. Start at the face ,down to the necklace then up the flowers at the side. Another title could have been "Beauty In A Beret".
