Introducing leggings. You’ll never run out of inspiration.

The inspiration behind this piece is simple.
It was cold, we were beginning to lose the feelings in our fingers yet nothing was going to stop her getting the shot she wanted.
Huge hugs to the gorgeous animo for letting me take this shot!

The beautiful city of Melbourne in the backdrop.

    you’re all nuts!!! I went to take some shots yesterday down by the beach, got out of my car with all good intentions, the wind was howling and I was COLD. Got back in the car and drove home! Guess I’m not as dedicated as I should be….LOL. Great work Paul, fantastic dramatic and contrasty image and I tip my hat to you both for putting up with the cold : )
