It’s so cold

It’s freezing in South Africa’s Sleepy Hollow today, and although this fire helped to defrost icy fingers and toes, it didn’t help restore our internet connection (which has been down for the last two days courtesy of the folk who decided to steal some rather vital cabling!). So I apologise for being a bit late with my blog updates. Hopefully things will be back to normal soon, but in the meantime I’ll post new photos if and when I can (although I suspect that if I keep turning up on friends’ doorsteps with a sad look in my eye complaining that I am suffering from internetlessness, I may just get shunned!)

The Old Man and the Fire

Today I thought I’d try something totally different… a modelling shoot. Unfortunately I don’t keep models on hand so I did the next best thing and borrowed my brother’s Gandalf figurine. I used a red scarf as a backdrop, a lamp for side-lighting, placed my mini-model and voila! It kind of reminds me of a drawing from a Graphic Novel with its vibrant ‘epicness’.
