Oh my goodness I made the front page...

I am sooooo excited- I made the front page. Now let me tell you why that makes me feel so great… Well today I had a classic ‘Michelle’ day. That is where everything goes a little bit wrong. Today I was doing valentines stock with one of my models. Last time we did this shoot the ballons blew off, well that would be a phenomenon, what I mean is it blew across the beach. Sand blew in the model’s eye and she began to cry… Then it turned into a full gale. My umbrella blew across the beach propelling my camera bag and lenses with it. I then proceeded to chase the brolly and my trousers fell down… The model laughed and cried. So last time wasn’t a complete success. What the model did say is: I have heard your stories and now I know they are real because I am part of it. If I hadn’t witnessed it…

So today I thought I would try again. Hmmmph. Well it started off okay, I got the balloons, got the model, missed the car ferry. Fine – I could deal with that. I made alternative arrangements and found a different location. So we set up in the different location and the wind whisks away the balloon leaving me with only one balloon. So then we work with what we’ve got. Fine, oh the blooming thing deflated…

After inhaling some rather long bits of foliage, coating myself in sand and going into a posh restaurant wearing a fleece and tracksuit bottoms we managed to create some beautiful imagery. By the end of the shoot we were completely elated. Then I returned to the car and had a parking ticket. Bum. I have been in a bit of a mood this afternoon, so seeing my image on the front page brightened my day… Thank you all.
