Heres my first portrait upload...i dont take a lot of portrait shots tbh, but in this case i felt it was worth uploading.

Its a picture of my girlfriend, Debbie, taken in Madrid last week... In fact it was thanks to her that I went to Madrid...
Id like to dedicate this photo to her, shes been through a lot with me and altho i could never tell you how much she means to me, Let me try explain to you just how good she is...

Last year i turned 21, and for my birthday she got me flying lessons (i should prob point out that when i was young i always wanted to be pilot, but because of health problems that was never going to happen!) it seemed like the perfect gift!....However about this time last year i ended up back in hospital and while i was in i developed a blood clot which has stopped me being able to go on the flying lesson since!...

The rest of the year hasnt been much better, between being sick and in college half the week. I really aint been the easiest person to be in a relationship with!...But shes stuck with me all the time and helped me through.

On top of always being there for me, she decided for my birthday this year to bring me to Madrid to see Firehouse (a forgotten but Brilliant band! of my favorite bands too!)....

She really is someone very dear to me... and i love her to bits!...

So this shot is dedicated entirely to her!...

Hope you like the photo anyways!

This is a beautiful portrait of Debbie..By your write up she seems to be a beautiful person inside and you better hold on to her..
Sorry to hear that you have been ill.. hope your well soon..
It is fantastic that you have someone in your life that so supportive.. I know that all to well.. My husband is the same for me.. When God blesses you with people in your life such as Debbie is in yours cherish them/her... which it sounds like you already do..
Best wishes to you both...

Great portrait,love the eye detail, Alan,

Hold on to Debbie,, people are known to rob "Gems".
Greatt shot of a lovely looking woman.
It's a well taken photo but I just don't like it! But that's cos I don't like being in front of the camera! I'm usually the one behind it. And Aidan you're making me blush!..well not really, but thanks for the comment! I have to say though that I'd be lost without Alan, I've been friends with him six years and we've been together over two and a half years and I've never been happier. And to Alan: I hate that you're sick so often and I'm completely fed up with Beaumont feckin hospital! but it's worth it to be with you and to love you and to know how much you love me too. Oh and I think I'll point out that this was taken in the pub...we spent our last day in Madrid in an Irish pub! So typical! Smile
