Kitzi, simply taking a moment in the evening sun whilst in Plymouth.

This is her natural colour, and apart from a closer crop and slightly cloning out her lead this image has no other adjustment.



To all my friends and contacts -

You may have noted over the past week various changes in my screen name.

A week ago - I found out on Saturday (24th) - a sometime work colleague and good flickr friend George Bayode passed away. Whilst ever I worked with him I did not know of his photographic hobby or indeed the artist inside of him. It was other work colleagues who pointed out our joint interest after he had left and I sought to renew our friendship when I returned to this hobby. This was one of the main contributory reasons for joining flickr in 2009. The other being my great friendship with PICSL8.

George and I kept in contact though the website and via texts on mobile phones, always planning to meet as our paths crossed and recrossed whilst I was at work and he came out to Derbyshire to continue his photography. HIs untimely death has quite shaken me.

I have constant reminders of his presence through the images he took and placed on flickr of the places he visited to photograph; those being the self same places I pass by frequently and work around.

This image is not and no way meant to be a tribute image.

My best tribute to George is to continue and develop my photography ask you to visit his photostream and learn from his photographic artistry.
