Portrait of a Lady (or two)...

Where did the weekend go?  I spent mine out and about with David doing two photo shoots.  On Saturday we were in an aircraft hangar at Bicester where there were various planes (don't ask what because I don't know) along with a model, the ultra glamorous Nicole Klein (who is a photographer, hairstylist and make-up artist who makes other women look glam too).  It was blowing a gale and things became hilarious when we went outside in between rain squalls - I thought my faithful reflector was going to take off and disappear over Bicester Shopping Village at any moment.  

On Sunday we were down at Sywell in Northants taking shots of a Red Baron plane along with Fiona Harrison whom you may remember I took some portraits of back in April.  As usual Fiona had the most gorgeous outfits with her - my favourite this time was a black Edwardian dress that had originally come from a costume department.  She looked immaculate as always.  As I spent most of the weekend in purple hoody and pink anorak being blown by wind and soaked by rain whilst trying to take photos, I did not.  

I also somehow managed to knit a sock this weekend whilst travelling - the things you do eh?

I love Nicole's beautiful green eyes, and Fiona's dress is a stunner! They're both very photogenic and make great "vintage" models (especially for a great photographer who's willing to brave the elements and an untold number of old airplanes to take their pictures!) :-)

Merci! To be honest it's David who arranges things with the planes etc, he takes a lot of pics with the model and the plane whereas I tend to ignore the plane :O)

Nicole is gorgeous and Fiona's wardrobe has me green with envy... not sure where I'd where an Edwardian beaded dress but am sure I could find some reason to own one!
