The above is technically a cheat because I didn't take it. One of my models yesterday picked up a camera and got me. In my defence, I can say that Gérard, my very gay hair stylist, has a sense of humour. It was taken on 19 July in the Val d'Enfer in Les Baux de Provence, a place Carole, the originator of this project, knows well.

This is part of Carole's excellent group initiative to show PB members, as opposed to what they shoot.

The only post-processing here was to convert from RAW to web-compatible jpg. Otherwise, I would have reduced my waist, my wrinkles and my age. Oh, and I would have added some hair. Bloody Gérard…

If anyone's interested, I was wearing one of my favourite t-shirts, which goes like this:

To do is to be
- Socrates
To be is to do
- Plato
Do be do be do
- Sinatra!

The hair looks good on you, makes you look younger. This is definitely a candid, and captures your personality (at least from what I've seen:)
