The Outtakes from the 'Hood!

People I carefully selected the first round of photos, for glamour. This one I've selected because they are silly. And not always flattering. I love these kinds of photos.
 Bah, I'm getting cramp in my left leg!
 To know me in real life is to understand that my tongue is a mobile and offensive weapon.
 Our gate. I love this pic but not the way my bolero has parted company with my shoulders. So vain!
 An interior shot at the laundromat. Nga and I are both generous souls and we carefully thumped and leaned on this washing machine to make sure it was strong enough to take my weight. It coped very well.
 I just love this photo for its perspective. These old shops at the top end of Cuba St were all relocated from when the new bypass was put in, so it is charming in a new and 'put together' way that the original ramshackle hodge podge wasn't. I am a little sad about that, actually. But I am standing outside a wonderful jewellers, his name is Jeremy and he is a total sweetie.
 Another from inside Marthas. I call it "Pretending to be interested in hats" which from my hairdo, I clearly am not.
 Through the window of Marthas. I was actually pretending Nga was paparazzi and trying to shoo her off but I look like a prisoner trying to hail down a potential saviour!
Oh dear. The one setting I had planned was me draped seductively on the concrete couch outside Comfort Hotel. Made by Weta Workshop, it is heated and looks so comfy. IT IS CONCRETE. IT IS NOT COMFY. I could not find a position I could hold for more than 10 seconds without pain. This was the end result. It's the only one where I just look like Jabba the Hutt, instead of Jabba the Hutt giving birth.
But please don't take that a the voice of upset - I love it, it's the hilarious side of photo shoots and why I can be bothered with them, because that's what makes them fun!


  1. That couch LOOKS so cozy! Great post - I love all of the outtakes. Especially that window/shooing picture. :D

    1. It is very cosy to sit on like a normal person, n a winter night. It is not for festooning oneself upon1 :)

  2. Outstanding candid shots! Hahaha!! I love them all dearly and equally. At least festooning looks good in photos. Heh.

    1. Luckily Nga gets rid of the worst ones before she sends the rest to me hehe
