    Challenge #34

    Use your camera as an excuse to go and spend time with someone that you’ve always been curious about.
    — Olivia Arthur

    Michael is an enigma and I have a fanciful suspicion that there are secrets waiting to be unearthed about his past. He is quietly flamboyant and has a caustic sense of humour. I have always been curious about him especially after visiting his house where he treated me to a recital from his 1920’s self playing piano which was magical! He has 3 constants in his life; antiques, poodles and Betty Grable. I’m not sure that I can claim to know him any better after this challenge but I enjoyed spending time with Michael even if he did refuse to wear his new teeth for the occasion!

      The blue china, his eyes and sweatshirt are wonderfully co-ordinated. Love his hand on the poodle too. The natural light is great. Lovely portrait.

      Love his cheeky grin and the fact that he refused to wear his new teeth :)) Clearly a rebel. Really nicely done Katie.

      I want to know more about the new teeth! There must be trust between you for Michael to feel more comfortable wearing his old ones, even though they look pearly.
