yesterday ali and i went to mona vale to see my dentist, Dr Roger Allison-Jones, for him to check her teeth for decay and a pain in her jaw ...
i've been going to him since before ali was born ..
this sums up the day really .. ali would prefer to have the dentist in her face rather than me take her photograph ..
granted roger is a brilliant dentist which is why i drive nearly 2 hours to see him .. i've heard he has patients who come from overseas .. a man who approaches his work with such enthusiasm and talent .. he is a true artist .. another thing in his favour is that he is a keen photographer .. !! .. roger in flickr ..
this is the workflow ..

this is the rest of the day .
in michel's cafe, not wanting me take her photograph ..

trip to the dentist just gives me the creeps. You caught it just brilliantly.

This is a fantastic triptych, Roz. It's your normal good stuff, but what makes this one shine is the story it tells.

Not sure how you can pull off something so cool from such an ordinary topic. Your talents are limitless!!!

I am so scared of the dentist I have to be sedated whenever I go! I think I will have the photographer! Creative work as always

Triptych and overlay and the dentist. This is fantastic. So much to look at and to focus in upon. Thanks.

Combining a triptych with an overlay is a great idea and you did a really great job of doing that. Nice collection for the triptych to tell a little story. I really dig the overlay.

I should try something like this with my daughter's first visit. Of course it wouldn't come close, but the point is that you inspire so much in people. This is very cool, and quite moody too!

This looks like a painting made in the Middle Ages. Luckily the dentist looks like a man from this time. Wonderful composition and post processing.

Wow, Roz!! Excellent combination of images. Your processing gives them a feel of illustration - photo realism - pastelly, very good.

So funny...and I can SO relate to being the annoyingly omnipresent photographer around my kids.

Great series and wonderful editing!

This looks like a very 'old style' print from a glossy magazine.

Adding an overlay of a crackle glaze, or crazy cracked look, would even make it look older.

I am in 'awe' of you processing, ideas, and amazing images.
