Thanks for the cc's on my waspy cream tea - thanks and yes I did eat the scones. cream and strawberry jam!
Todays upload is unusual for me as I do not do a great deal of portrait photography. Last weekend I and a friend of mine went to have tea with Helen. Helen is over a hundred years old and proudly showed us the card from the queen.
We had a lovely chat and it turns out she was one of the women who underwent the great march in the far east during the war and was subsequently taken to Australia (A town like Alice ). Her husband also survived the camps and they were reunited two years later.
She graciously agreed to my request to take her picture and, as any woman should, she was just the tiniest bit vain, pushing her hair into place and adjusting her jumper before allowing me to take some shots.
A grand lady.
Hope you enjoy them. A
