What a burden it must be to look as beautiful and elegant as you always look:)

Do you know what makes that pic so great? Aside from the fact that it's you? The fact that it's black and white. There's something so elegant and soft about black and white photography. I hope it doesn't die.

You and my late mum could have been twins!!

Pat said...

Judy: I don't - if I ever was:)

Kim: no fooling you:)

Parsnip: I doubt I was really feeling serene being shot by Angus:)

Grany Annie: did you know baloney can also be spelt with an o? When I found it I was going to replace the much younger avatar but I can't work out how to do it.

Exile: most of the models I knew just saw the flaws in their own photos. We preferred black and white because they could be retouched to remove the flaws. In those days they couldn't do it with colour until an American
photographer started it in the fifties. Leo Ayrons I think his name was.
Kim Ayres does some great work in B/W.

John: I wish I'd met her.

You look stunning, my dear....!

Pat said...

Naomi: as I was taken by my son all the lines were left in:)

LL Cool Joe said...

Very elegant with a real retro feel. I thought you were holding a shell to start with, and did wonder why.

Ms Scarlet said...

Always, graceful and lovely.

Nea said...

Classic, with the black and white, but also the soft lighting, is it from a window?

Pat said...

Joey: my dictionary defines retro as backward. Thanks a lot Joey:)
I think I was holding a flower. Not sure why.

Scarlet: you're too kind:)

Nea: I have it I my mind we were in Dunham Park in the house so it would have to be window light. He also took one with a hat but where di the hat come from?

I wish modelling wasn't only for the very young. Look at what the mags are missing when they don't use you, you gorgeous gal, you.

GG: I used to get migraines. I haven't had them since.
