    I once met a boy when I went looking for an angel, I thought I would find him if I went looking for high and low, down city streets at dawn, cobble-stoned alleyways at dusk under bridges, in skate parks, on the dance floor, in trams, buses and trains, in bus shelters and tram stops, in underground car parks, in shopping malls, in pantry’s of double storey terrace houses with cast iron lacing; those were the kinds of places I thought angels hung out in.. instead I found a boy wrapped in feathers..

    fantastic shot: blond as well! dont they say all angels are blond?

    beautiful work robbie… love all the subtleties in this…… you tell such great stories……… bravo……………b

  • Thanks Butch. The angel has been done so many times – thought I’d give it a go though, so I followed this one at the Mardi Gras Fair Day in Sydne on the weekend.

    Ah, I usually can not abide staged photos. This one is world’s beyond anything previously viewed. The genre at its very very best. Bravo!

  • Well…thanks Lucin. This angel was at a gay and lesbian Fair Day in Sydney roving around…although I did ask him to hold still for me while he chatted to an earth bound human :)

    Really nice off-the-cuff shot. Angels don’t stand still for long either. The boxer make it look even cuter :) Well done

    sorry i dont have much to say but i think this is just great.
    i like the few broken feather particularly. the poor angel must have had a rough mardi gras.

  • Thanks ffarff. Mardi Gras is a bit like that – and this was even before the whole thing really started – this was at the launch at Fair Day. Still 2 weekends 2 go and the so big lead up has begun :)
