The bluebells come out at a magic time of year- within a few days of flowering the woodland canopy has emerged from its winter hibernation and the light filters through the lime green glade on to the endless blue carpet. It really is bliss.

In the backstreets of Venice I heard this shouting and looked down on the gondola coming up the canal to see these lads waving. I pointed the camera quickly and they responded in kind. Somewhere in the world a photo of me taking this photo resides…
I took this photo of Victor some years ago. He is a Mexican artist and he lived in London at the time. Years later through completely different circumstances I met his partner – although I didn’t know he was related until conversation flowed. The more Victor was described, the more I felt he had to be the same guy I photographed. I sought confirmation and eyebrows have never risen so high on said partner’s forehead. He now lives in Mexico! Funny that.
For the first time in my life I think I am getting into make-up. Watching Melissa evolve into this stylish goth under the skilled hands of Kamni and Alia -the two make up artists was quite something. Get me some of those eyelashes- NOW!
