When searching for localish models on portfolio hosting sites I always specify no tattoos yet most of the results thrown up do indeed have them, and not just the odd small one either. It seems the majority of tattooed models can’t be arsed to confirm the fact and leave poor suckers like me wasting time wading through their portfolios to find out the ugly truth.
WordPress, the software underpinning this website, has a major update available. I will be crossing my fingers and installing this new version sometime during the week so if the site goes tits up you know why.
It’s that time of year again where I struggle to get enthusiastic about anything. I don’t bother getting out of bed much before midday and then idle my time away watching daytime TV or YouTube videos. There’s a long list of things I should be doing, some important, some frivolous, but no matter what I just can’t get motivated. It’s nothing new, when British Summer Time ends my mind and body shut down.
I’m not designed to operate in extremes of temperature so I’ve been spending a lot of this heatwave hiding in the coldest part of my house, the living room. Handy for summer but a bloody nightmare during winter. I’ve been trying to remember back to 1976, the last big heatwave/drought, but the only thing that readily comes to mind is Night Nurse winning the Champion Hurdle at Cheltenham. My priorities were different back then.
With the longest day almost upon us I thought it was about time I picked up the camera again. Okay I have done a couple of test shoots with a muse but nothing really serious. My casting calls threw up nothing eye-catching so I booked a model I had already worked with from a couple of years back. The session got off to a slow start because I had difficulty remembering what camera settings to use and it came to an early end when I found I had lost interest in the subject matter. Yes, I’ve reached the age where naked young ladies don’t excite me anymore! I’m now sat here wondering whether I should sell my camera gear or wait to see if the numbness passes over.
