For once a behind the scenes that actually features me! Kambriel, my daughter and I took a lovely day trip to the Maryhill Museum and swung by the inexplicable Stonehenge reproduction nearby. As silly as that may seem, once inside it gives the nice effect of a labyrinth.
“Inexplicable Stonehenge” is my favourite phrase of the day.
What a wonderful day we had… If only all shoots included a fabulous picnic lunch and exhibits ranging from chess sets, Théâtre de la Mode, and Rodin’s rather oddly chosen personification of “Despair”. It was so lovely that Sophia was able to come along, ~and~ was such a ninja at getting these behind the scenes shots!
What is interesting to me is that the week it was featured, I was on an all day photo shoot excursion with this very model (the otherworldly Kambriel) who I had not seen in over 2 years! I think on the 26th of March she may have been boarding a plane to fly out to here. Wacky!
It’s always a thrill to be featured in such promotions because Corbis is contracted with an army of AMAZING commercial photographers, and I am sort of on the fringe of things, over here in my weird world of wonders with my bare minimum camera equipment.
