I've got two weeks off work!

But today started with some golf with Rik and his brother, John, and some other guy they know and me taking some photos.

With a start at 6:00am this morning, I got to drive 4 different BMWs, every one of them superb, as you'd expect. And I got to drive a golf cart.

And I drove a golf ball straight into a lake. It was a cheap one, made specially for the purpose.

Then I consumed 2 Heinekens and 5 glasses of different wine, every one of them superb. But I also managed to drop a bottle of good wine, dammit.

Day is done. Happy Birthday Riki J.

The Photo

I was trying out cross lighting, balancing flash with ambient light. I'm pretty pleased with this result. It's had nothing done to it apart from a small bit of USM.

It's John, driving, a golf ball, not into a lake.

  • Two weeks off huh!? Well I ope you do better than my week off last week and get more than two photos. Love this shot - the dark background is kinda freaky, but makes John really pop, specially in that top!

  • The background is a function of it being under-exposed while the flash made up for the foreground. ANd day 3 of my holiday and so far, hardly any photos to speak of.
