  • Thanks Carol. Never thought I’d trot this old slide out on RB but looking at it the other night I thought it has something :^)

    Oh yes! Great portrait. Could look good in B+W, too. Well done V

  • Thanks Rhoufi :^) even though I was just a kid myself, coping with the mechanics of my dad’s new Agfa camera, I remember jumping onto someone’s garden wall, in Prahran, to get some height for this shot. Years later, at art school, I made a sketch of it – my instructor said it looked like one of the kids from James’s Turn of the Screw! Maybe I overdid the eyes? lol

  • I thought B+W might be too ‘cold’ but giving it a vintage look with just a hint of colour seems to work quite well :^) Thanks for helping me re-think this one!
