ego ego ego…

Forgive the rampant egoism of this post, but a lot of my students made portraits of me last year…not ever an assignment i can assure you, but i loved them and all the little details they picked out, here are some:

IMG_1293May have posted this one before, but it deserves a re-post, Anusha got my hair, the flower and the bag down to a T…


IMG_2486Me and my omnipresent camera…and factually correct earrings.


IMG_2768Thomas did this one, he got my hair, flower, bag and bindi, and the red lipstick! Genius!


IMG_5157Narasingh is not officially my student but drops by from time to time…it’s me working on my laptop! and he even caught how i always hook my bag on my chair. Bloody brilliant!!


P1250235Longtime student Angel drew this one.


P1260215Hemanth, giving me fabulous jewellery!!!


Not in India yet but am going through a mountain of material from this time last year…actually caught this from a moving and very bumpy school bus so was pretty happy with this shot of a wee boy (or girl?) just at the other end of a hissy fit.


neglecting my duties…

…someone wiser than me referred to blogging as being like tending a garden, you need to water it and tend to it regularly or ultimately it withers and dies…which is absolutely true and i must admit i have definitely neglected the watering part of late…so i shall try to make amends. There have been foraging trips and Spanish culinary adventures, all coming soon, in the mean time here is another photo from India. I would love to say it was a requested portrait but it was me who did the asking, they looked so marvellous in the early morning light:

requested portraits and mugging for the camera…

Requested portraits are a category of photographs i take whereby the subject asks for the picture to be taken and they pose themselves, i just shoot, here are a few recent ones:

P1240364just back from temple, she was beautiful…P1260365 early morning Bhavani Deekshas

P1270344village kids…talk about mugging for the camera!

Herminda (see previous post) thinks am nuts (and possibly a pain in the ass) ‘cos i keep taking her photo. Am outside gardening, trying to help out but keep my camera at hand ready to leap into action…
