I’m still really struggling with the updates. Plenty of excuses. I’ve not been well, the weather, the football, no sleep, no models. I’m sure I could dream up a few more too. I’ve fallen back on 4 girls who provided me with more than enough usable content when visiting the Chateau de Vaughan and I’m sure it won’t be the last time they come to my rescue.
I’ve never really functioned properly outdoors. Getting the right weather and a model together on the same day always seems to elude me and then there is the eternal problem of finding a local location which guarantees a bit of privacy. In the digital era I think this is my most successful outdoor session and I make no apology for posting from the set again.
I’ve had a few complementary emails recently thanking me for my continuing efforts in keeping the website going in these difficult times. Visitors to the site of my age all seem to acknowledge that there is a drought of natural attractive models on the scene nowadays and my archives bring back memories of “the good old days”.
After “sorting out” my digital files it’s now time to have another go at the trannies and negatives. Every year I have a mini throwout session but something more serious needs doing. For the purpose of this website many of the glamour photos are unusable for one reason or another so destroying them is the only option. Since the death of my film scanner there’s not much I can do with the rest but I do have a yonks old cheapo contraption for copying trannies which maybe I should give a try on the D810 and see if I can get any decent results.
In an attempt to recover my lost home movies I’ve been dismantling the failed hard drives and swopping bits around but although some of the drives have burst into life I’ve still been unable to read any of the data from them. It’s now last resort time, restoring from the original tapes, this is going to be a lot of fun methinks. The tapes have lay dormant in a shoe box and the now unsupported camcorder hasn’t been switched on in over 5 years. Anyone willing to take bets on my chances of success.
