isn't it good



I've got a strange problem: I've got too damn many shots I want to post. They're piling up like double decker buses in Picadilly during rush hour after you've been waiting 45 minutes. And now with London Fashion Week coming up, I'm simply going to have to post more than once a day. There are worse problems to have in life, I suppose.

This girl, from Oslo, was standing exactly in this pose when I shot her first without her permission, and then asked if I could shoot her exactly like that (she said yes). She's so nice and I didn't write down her name - I think it was Anna (my grandmother's name). So I hope she saved my card and gets in touch. She was only just visiting London. And I get the sense that at the very second I snapped this photo, she was thinking the same thing I was: what a perfect moment, this glorious day here in this amazing city, London, here by the Serpentine, it just feels so damn good to be alive.

Isn't it good, Norwegian Wood.

I truly love this photo - it may be one of my favorites of yours thus far. I love the expression on her face, how you can almost hear what she's thinking. And her style is pot on. J'adore! :)
