A fine looking young man and very nice portrait, Carol. Lovely depth of field.

I'm NOTHING if not a procrastinator! I just found a draft message I started to you over a year ago! I apologize, and I WILL finish it. I just wanted to say this is my first viewing of Justin's Christmas pic. Fabulous, as always. He is always the perfect-looking model (has he gotten any better at posing for you or is he still a diva (wait, is a boy called a divo?). ANYWAY, wonderful shot of my favorite model! You rock! #10632858

Thank you so much Amanda and James! James, I know the feeling! I am one of the worst procrastinators ever! So I will look forward to your late letter! He takes it by spells about letting me take photos of him. When he really likes his hair, he will volunteer to let me take them, but he isn't so cooperative when it's my idea! Sometimes I can get him to let me if he is with his g/f and I take photos of both of them, then sometimes I can talk him into a few just by himself! It was his birthday Monday 25th (he's 17) and he let me take a few but I want to do a retake; he waited until the sun was already going down and I didn't get that nice golden light that I wanted. So I am going to have to really persuade him to let me try again!
