My Little Waif and Stray

24 Aug 2018 4:11PM   Views : 834 Unique : 387

Last night ADAPS booked the Lancashire Mining Museum for a private shoot. At 6pm the heavens opened and the rain was torrential. At 6.30pm it all cleared up and we had a gorgeous end of day, with all the sun that we get when travelling home from a rainy day out and the evening opens up and is glorious. But this time we were not stuck in traffic watching it, instead we spent two hours shooting our four delightful models Charlotte, Phoebe, Chloe and, for the first time, Kate. Charlotte was in peaky Blinders mode and ready for some mining. Phoebe was the little waif and stray. Chloe was the boob tube and Little Black Dress and Kate was finding her feet with a micro skirt and top.

So far so good. I was using the Pentax K-1 and the SMC Pentax-FA 43mm f/1.9 Limited lens. I really enjoyed the shoot. The models were great, everyone was in harmony and thanks to NeilWigan and his wife Joan Charlotte and Phoebe were dressed for the part, to perfection. So why the "waif and stray" comment. Well, that was for the current PU monthly competition, which again seems to be struggling to get off the ground. The line I chose was the how can you tell me you're lonely one and Phoebe was kitted just perfectly to show the idea of being lonely. We'll see what our judge thinks in due course.

In the meantime, some pictures!

The Golden Days of Motoring, Part Two

Continuing the look at yesterday's classic car show, I could have spent many more hours looking at these fine machines and chatting to their owners, plus of course collecting a huge set of images. Only one car that I would like to see again seemed to...
