Hey Phish, you said you were interested in a photo shoot -- are you available?

Yes? Oh good! Bring slacks, nice shirt and a top hat. Oh, and bring cool clothes that can get dirty. I need you to dig a grave in the back yard.

Ok -- it didn't turn out as I'd hoped. I really wanted to get the feeling of a grave, and a Victorian type gravedigger.

The problem was that there was too much clay and roots in the back yard. The hole was only slightly deeper from the camera. I've wanted to do this shot for quite awhile, and I'll still do it right, someday. I think I'll have to actually build UP to make it look like a grave.

But it still was a fun effect.

And it was still fun doing. Even if it was extremely hot outside and my camera got filthy laying it in a dirt hole.

Thanks phish!

And thanks for the comments. :)

It took me a while to figure out that the black think on the ground at the right was his shoe :)

This is great Wendy! I'm not sure how much better you can get it when you 'do it right, someday'.

Looks like something Wendy will do :-) I'm sure I recognise your model.

In My top picks.

PS love the way his trousers look, kind of Amish.
