It was a cold, windy, drizzly, overcast day , so an outdoor photoshoot was out. Â Ninon can NOT get wet, and I’m not too sure about the water-fastness of the chintz the pet is made from. Â Where to go in Wellington that is indoors, attractive, has good lighting, and where they will let you take pictures?
The old Dominion Museum building, now the arts building at Massey University.
We got soooooooooooooo many beautiful pictures.
I managed to edit an hour and a half of photos down to 250 keepers. Â Then I had to edit those down to 90 that I really wanted to show you. Â More grueling editing, and I’m at 75 that I really, really want to show you. Â By the time I’m down to a reasonable amount I’m going to be at really, really, really, really, really, really.
Theresa and I make a great team because we are equally excited about being behind and in front of the camera. Â Our shoots are punctuated by excited cries of “Oooh…my turn, my turn!”, and they are equally likely to be a desire to take pictures as to be taken.
Of course, as lovely as it is to take pictures of each other, it’s even better to get some together. Â On this occasion we were helped out by a fashion student who had just finished his exams and was waiting for his friends to finish. Â Fashion students are used to photographing people in improbably clothes!
Here are the best of the images of Theresa and I together. Â Total era mixing, but I rather like that.
I’ll be showing you the other 70 or so soon 😉
