Saw Margot and her dog, Alba, on Fulham Road, with her son. Asked to shoot her. She was lovely about it. I love her look & love how Alba is matching. But just in case you think I got this in one take, I'm supplying you with the out takes.
This is one of those times I'm glad I switched to a digital camera, at least for street shooting. I'd normally only take one, two shots at most when I shot in film. At least, I hope I've got Margot's name right. I was laughing so hard I didn't get a chance to write it down.
Now, off with me (in the snow - well it's laughable as snow to the rest of the snow-bearing world) to give moral support to my lovely and quite pregnant friend Bronwyn, her husband and delightful dog, Jackson, who are moving today. Hence the dog theme.
UPDATE: once again, I got the names wrong. I was actually reciting the names & by the time I got home, they changed. Just heard from Mardy, not Margo (was confusing her with today's post) & this is what she sent:
"I love your site and particularly loved the photos of Alfie and me, naturally. Would you mind changing the names, however, to the correct ones...I should have given you my card. I am Mardy (not Margot) and Alfie (not Alba). I sometimes call him ‘Alpha’ when he’s being naughty or obstinate (like when I was trying to get him to sit for the photo!)."
I guess when he's extra naughty, he becomes Alba. Actually, he was very nice. As is Mardy!
In fact, Alfie: this one's for you:
(I can't embed Lily Allen's Alfie video but you can click here to see it again, as it's unlikely you haven't seen it yet).
