Who made it November when it’s May? A chilled Sunday after a four day week photographing groups and documenting a conference. A quick stop for a portrait in between showers after brunch.
Location – Port Dundas
A quick off the cuff shoot with the beautiful Rachael, whilst we were checking out this part- restored church for a forthcoming event in Glasgow. I love the fact we hadn’t planned it, yet she looks so together – complete with matching lipstick and nails. The day was overcast but still the light fell magically.
This week has started well. Yesterday I was taking portraits of a beautiful young woman I know in a beautiful part-restored church in Glasgow. Hopefully I will be able to share a couple of the images with you, permission permitting. Afterwards I popped to The Lighthouse viewing gallery to take a landscape view of Glasgow. It’s a city I love, but don’t know well enough. That I need to change.
Today I have pottered. I did yoga, I baked, made soup, walked Alfie, had a cuppa with a neighbour. I played more with my film camera – taking a quick portrait of David when he came home for lunch -taking shots on both film and digital of blossom whilst I am waiting for Tuesday Tacos night, making notes so I can compare. I found the timer function by accident and took a shot of fuck all.
Tomorrow is my birthday – my week is shaping up well.
A couple of my favourite images taken this past few days. Taken on Olympus OM-D EM1.
Tulips in my living room – finished but better than fresh. Decay always seems better with nature.
My new Mac lipstick. A little high maintenance for me. It means I actually have to check my appearance from time to time. Image taken in the loos of Flatplanet, Soho.
Nicholas Kirkwood shoes – not mine. Too big, too expensive for my budget. But lovely all the same.
Pinkston Watersports – Glasgow. Early one Sunday morning, out of focus but I prefer it.
A couple of my favourites from 2014……see you on the other side!

Rachael and I spent the afternoon taking images for her forthcoming exhibition to be shown in Glasgow in a few weeks time – which will be amazing! I will keep you posted! Afterwards we took a cheeky shot or two of the very clever and talented young lady herself. I love the blue of the window, perfectly matching her skinnies and Harry Potter tattoo.

Can you see the resemblance? Big nose, facial hair (okay semi kidding about the last one). When my Dad saw this image of himself, he thought he looked really old. When I look at this image I see my Dad relaxed, happy and contemplating. Love you Dad.
