Pretty, curvy, smiling Leigh (and Gideon!)

 

Earlier this year at the Leighton Buzzard Canal Festival I chanced upon a slightly alternative Morris dancing troupe.

 

I knew that Leigh and Gideon were into Airsoft The players take it very seriously, the equipment they use is remarkably realistic

 

two muses for the price of one in this set. Houghton House is a favourite spot of mine for picture taking and this time I've combined it with another favourite subject Leigh.

 

Lena is a professional model. She was let down at the last miinute and so I grabbed the opportunity to work with her. We shot four locations in three different outfits during the course of our time in London.

 

The first collection of images was shot in St Dunstan's in the East, a ruined church in the middle of the City of London that has been turned into a beautiful secluded garden. The dress Lena arrived in just seemed to work perfectly for the location.

I was in full tourist mode when I went to the states but it seems that the photographer in me never takes a day off. This collection of shots contains cute, funny, interesting and downright weird images. I'll let you decide which is which.

 

The fourth collection from my trip to New York is of course the Statue Of Liberty.
