Yesterday was the most glorious day and I was meeting my friend and yoga teacher, Arup, for sushi, except we were meeting @ 2;45 and Kulukulu Sushi closed @ 2;45, so we went to the fabulous Casa Brindisi instead. As we said goodbye, I happened to walk him to his bicycle (he cycles about 150 miles a week!) and saw Joyce dashing thru the crowd in the brilliant sunlight, like a colt.
I'm so glad she got in touch because I really want to shoot her again: the light was just terrible (i.e. too bright) and I can't really show you the detail of her amazing suede boot like sandals (I'll source this, I promise). Turns out - of course - she's a model and was on her way to a casting, so it was a very quick shoot, click click click. Despite shooting her practically in silhouette, every shot I took was a different, excellent pose. I want to do another post sometime with the other shots: she's really good.
Didn't have a card on me, neither of us had pens, so she had to just remember the name, but she found me. And oh! Guess what: she's from NY, too. I didn't even register her accent wasn't British.
I am LOVING your comments about Jesus, btw. To answer your questions, Maya and Rebecca, it's funny actually because I assumed Mr. Dot doesn't read my posts (apart to comment when my shots are 'blurry') and I know for sure he never listens to a word I say (it's been scientifically proven: men don't hear women, it seems: the higher pitched the voice, the less they register. And more 'girly' women have higher voices, which is, coincidentally, the type men prefer to sleep with. So you basically have a scenario where men are sleeping with, living with, and, eventually, marrying women without ever hearing a single word they say. Which explains a lot).
But I digress... last night I was flitting around, doing something in another room, when I heard Mr. D, (or Dude, as I'm now calling him) call out: 'I don't like this'. 'Like what?' 'Be still my heart'. Concerned? Hard to say.
Any exciting plans for the weekend? We're going to the Hay Literary Festival but I've just heard about this ASOS/95.8Capital Summertime Ball @ Wembley which I'd love to go to, on the way back. Can't be everywhere at once. Only virtually ; )
