To be fair, I did choose this theme knowing I was going to shoot some models in a studio today....

One of many shots at a lovely Studio the other side (From me!) of kidderminster  - Far Forest Studio's - when wasn't shooting models, was shooting or watching the wildlife - loads of different birds, dragon flies, kingfisher I think I saw flash past - Deer and heard owls.

This is my Dad.
Subject to a bit of Dragan treatment. Hopefully not too much, but i think it brings out of the age and the blemishes with a bit of a gritty feel.

Too late with mine I`m afraid - lost track. Might be missing this week too as a lot on and then away in Cornwall for a week.

Going up by by Port Isaac. We usually go further south but thought we`d try up that way and see Tintagel and the kingdom of Rick Stein.
