I am sitting up front with Delta flying from Miami to the big ATL with Matt and our Art Director K ........ downloading all the stuff from todays shoot........ it has been a bit of a tricky shoot...... lot of problems with props and locations physical conditions blah blah ........

It was incredibly windy today........ which always leads to problems with hair....... and lights and props and reflectors blowing away....... I remember once Helena was holding a 12 ft scrim on Broadstairs Beach in the UK on a seriously windy day....... she took off with the scrim acting like a glider taking her 20 feet in the air and off towards the sea ....... really scary...... luckily she was fine if a bit freaked ......

Anyway we didn't quite have that....... but the wind was a right drag.......... partly as i had to shoot a pile of pictures at sidewalk height next to the beach....... thats a serious problem when the sand is blowing off the beach.........

Anyway it was tricky all day....... both days........ we worked like mad to make it all work and overcome the problems........... K said on a couple of occasions she was so glad it was us doing it........ cos we just do it anyway......... make it work no matter what......... which made me happy..... cos that certainly is how I like to approach things........ I think maybe its my background in photojournalism....... the problems we were facing today........ sure they make it all tricky....... but hey I've known a lot worse :-/ :-)))

Cheers Jez XXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

PS........ I just checked myself in the airplane bathroom mirror....... I have a sun tan on one side of my face...... the other side was pressed to the pavement......... hehehehehe :-/ :-))

PPS............ I had ten seconds to look at the scene.......... this what I saw in that 10 seconds between shots :-)) XXXXXXXXX

PPPs........... Here is a chilled sound Harv is recommending Dark Golden Star by Joyce Mercedes you can play it over the BBC World Service to give you your own changing mix :-)))))))))))))
