This was one of those perfect New England days in late summer where the spirit of autumn takes a first stealing flight, like a spy, through the ripening countryside, and, with feigned sympathy for those who droop with August heat, puts her cool cloak of bracing air about leaf and flower and human shoulders.

That just about sums up yesterday (apart from the fact that I was in Ye Olde Englande and not the new one). I spent the day with David at Sywell doing a photo shoot. The model was Caroline who has only been modelling since April, but who was so gorgeous and so professional that it was a real pleasure to photograph her.
I'm a big fan of the style of film noir, and also of Hollywood portraits of the 1940s with that strong dramatic lighting they used, so I took the opportunity to try out a few shots using our shiny new lights.
Can not only look like a femme fatale,
can also obviously do mechanics at the same time...
