Valentine special 040 - 045
Gronau in Germany.... Encouraged by Nel's advice to continue with the project under the new circumstances, I contacted Emma. To my delight, she was all go to do a new photo shoot on short term, in spite of the wind and the cold. After our limbs had somewhat warmed up in a big restaurant called Extrablatt I asked the man in charge if we could use his premises for a short series of model photography. Being a generous man and knowing me for ages, Mohamed gave his permission straightaway. A giant reproduction of a well known photo by the famous Frank Horvat looked like a perfect background for Emma to pose in the Valentine glasses. The only disadvantage was that the restaurant was rather crowded but we managed to install ourselves anyway. It was an entirely new experience for Emma who prefers quiet surroundings but she managed bravely. What sets this Valentine series by lovely Emma apart is the wonderful element of devotion in her expression.
