I am busy this weekend so I put a picture in a bit early.

First in Simple - nice to see an early entry. ;)

I'm going into town after dark this evening (a rare event) to try to get something suitably moody. Fingers crossed.

I`m in early too with a busy weekend ahead. An old one I recalled that I had never got around to visiting as I`d planned to get a 50s / film noir spy type shot. I`m afraid my "models" were desperate to go out to dinner to eat and were less intent on hearing how I wanted them though Peter at the front did what I asked at least. Budapest in a great old apartment block from bygone days. Iron framed building with old lift and peeling paint. I loved it and have loads of shots in there when exploring - fair to say others in our party felt I`d gone too cheap  :2funny:

Sorry Paul, seemed to have picked the same title for my entry, but without the added feminine element.

Took it last evening in a back alley in town. Had to keep an eye out to make sure no ne'er do well ran off with the camera while I was waiting for the timer to go off.

Done in Affinity with a little bit of Topaz B&W2 on top in places.

Sorry, nothing from me this week. Despite lots of thinking, just didn't around to it. Shame as I liked the topic.

Ran out of time here as well. Perhaps I will still try and do a shot to archive for the future  :tup:

Great minds and fools spring to mind...  ;) Yours was more fitting so I`ve changed mine to the idea I ahd when shooting before our wives starting messing about with model poses. I asked for a sinister , serious look but got shouted at with cries of "Hungry" when i asked them to try again  :)
