Not so long ago I was asked to make the portrait of a rather interesting lady. She turned up with some rather alarming clothes she thought would be interesting, although I thought some of them must be extremely uncomfortable to wear.

I complied with her wishes, wincing at the tautness (sausages came to mind at the time, but don't ever tell her that) and luckily managed to capture her without them. Rose graces posts here [redbubble.com] and in other sites [redbubble.com] - thankfully without these constrictions.

In rummaging through my digital sofa I came across this one. I'm not a fan of tattoos, I must confess, and I don't see the need to permanently scar one's body. (Scars - like many people of my age, I have several - should be unintended, IMO, but it's only my opinion.) However, the composition with one of those bizarre items of clothing she brought to her first shoot made me want to work on it and show the result here.

This [youtube.com] is the first song I thought of in doing so. What an extraordinary group The Verve was.

It set my mind at rest, when I read your comment on her clothes, because I thought ... no, I better keep these thoughts to myself ...
You made ​​the very best of this picture ... taking into consideration the clothing of your model.

Ceiling Rose has to be my favourite photo ever of yours re- your models.
I don't like this tawdry dress.... maybe better naked or with plain Lycra shorts.

Nice angle.
I actually have six tattoos. All hidden because of where I work.
