THE THOUGHT PROCESS
It was lovely to photograph Miss Poppy Bloom, vintage pin up model, to include in my black and white Summer Exhibition. The vintage pin up models I have worked with know their art so well. I don't need to tell them how to pose. I can just place them in a scene, let them do their thing, and capture the moment.
The old hall and Miss Poppy Bloom reminded me of Summer Evening dances in some old country hall. Cicadas humming, the smell of hay, the faint tinkling and hustling from the hall's kitchen as some of the ladies put on a cuppa tea and supper... and do I hear Bing Cosby?
