Photo Shoot...

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.
Sarah Orne Jewett

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...

I love the Noir shots (love Film Noir, too - took an entire college class in that genre!) The first and third are my favorites - lovely and mysterious, a femme fatale indeed!

We've been having New England/Olde England weather the past two days too, and it sure feels better than that hot, dry, blistering stuff we've been laboring under most of the summer! Fall is in the air already.

Many thanks, it was a truly gorgeous day and I had to just sit on the ground and drink in that beautiful light.

Donna - Lol! Thank you, I'm not worthy!

Laurie - don't envy you that heat and am glad it's cooled down for you. What I do envy is Caroline's perfect eyebrows! I know, I know, of all the things to focus on...!
