This Is Not My Picture - Feb 2012 - Me & Sue Smiling Beneath the Jelly Babies

What Jelly Babies I hear you say, well these Jelly Babies... www.flickr.com/photos/gareth1953/6959475503/

My good friend Jeff took this picture ( see 'people in this picture' for a look at his site, or look at the 'pictures of me' in my profile to see the originals.) I thought his original pictures fell between two stools by having a portrait of me and his wife underneath the 'Jelly Babies' artwork in Marble Arch. I suggested he trim, at least, one of the pictures but he would have none of it. Because of his obstinacy I had to take matters into my own hand and show him and you what can be achieved with a bit of judicious pruning. The originals were very good but I think the portraits look even better. I hope you agree.

Here you can see me discussing with Sue the look of the picture I wanted to take of them after these were taken. I've posted my picture of them in this pose but I'm not happy with it as I appear to have over edited it and so doesn't look half as good as this one. Yes I do wish the wife would smile at me that warmly. Shame.

Yes I do need a haircut but no I won't be buying any Grecian 2000.
