When one has not had a good father, one must create one.

It can be nice to experiment with the camera every now and then. Angle of shot, depth of field, mixing up temperatures, depth of focus, exposure times, f-stop fiddling, shutter speeds, perspective distortion, messing with the metering mode and so on.

Yet when one’s two key subjects are a little on the energetic side, shutter speed is about the best we can hope for.

That’s where marshmallows come in.

It appears that the humble blend of sugar, water and gelatine is the prospective solution to impatient models.

Who knew?

The monster or Frankenstein? Who's father?

My boys look up to their Pa and consider him father-like...as they have not had the advantage of having their own about!
Though they often declare that having me as their mother is quite enough to cope with in one lifetime!

Roddy, huh?

Sue, ten a penny!
