Morning everyone, and what a cold, crisp morning it is. I was up at 6 today to get my eldest son who has moved into his own place to work.
I opened the door to find a fairly good scattering of snow on the ground, the dogs were not impressed as I shoved them through the door, I swear they want me to get small wellies for them to wear, the way they appear to tiptoe around whenever the ground isn't dry is ridiculous.
Anyway, I let them out and once they had finished their business I set about slurping down some revival juice, also known as tea. The dogs at this point decided they wanted a cuddle, or just to get me back for forcing them out into the cold. All three of them together jumped on my lap and began trying to give me kisses, very nice indeed as I noted I was becoming covered in wet paw prints whilst gaining a good coating of slather on any part of me they couldn't stand. Once i had had the full treatment they went and lay down to let me enjoy my tea in peace. Thanks a bunch, they say a dogs a mans best friend, yeah right as long as you don't mind being sopping wet and covered in drool.
I do love them to bits though.
Today's upload is of my youngest son, Samuel. This was taken a long time ago when I was doing my degree and portraiture.
I had done alot of work in the studio and wanted to get some shots on location, this being one of them.
I was trying to portray a youth stood, looking up to know good, a very stereotypical sinister feeling that certain people bring with them, in the way they are dressed and their mannerisms.
This to me is the type of scene that would possibly force a passerby to cross the street or even find an alternative route, rather than risk passing.
I hope you like it, thanks for looking and for any comments.
