    Wow! I thought he looked familiar when I first saw this post. Did you meet him as a photographer, or some other way?

    Here's my theme contribution...

    camera: Rolleiflex 3.5E Planar
    film: Arista Pro 400
    hand held, Vivitar 285HV flash bounced off ceiling

    Oh my. Can't compete with any of these here, but the theme instantly reminded my of these photos of my son, who apparently likes "his" (?) sofa very much, and in all positions:

    (Taken by this young man's little sister with her cheap point-and-shoot camera)

    (Taken by same photographer as above, but with my [film] camera)

    (... and draped over the sofa again watching telly - no! Sorry! Shortly interrupting this 'activity' by glancing over to what his mother's doing).

    Are they too different from your original idea, Hertz?

    I went to photograph him, we got talking (as you do) and we found we had mutual friends.
    If you want me to start name dropping... :mrgreen:

    Those are really cool Hertz. I like the first photo a lot. The mood in it is so nice. :)

    maybe a new thread can be started in themes section "Famous people I've shot!!!" (with a camera that is!). Im afraid i wouldnt be able to contribute to it though :( but it would be nice to see other peoples pics.

    the guy in the first looked familar but i wasn't quite sure. something to do with python? i don't know the other.

    these images are new to me and are obviously wonderful! with the elapse of each day it becomes more of an honour to know you Hertz!

    so, what's the story here?

    The lady is a singer called Melanie - she used to sing with the Country & Western gynaecologist, Hank Wangford (who no-one will have heard of unless they were around London in the 80's) and had a solo career too.
    I turned up the morning after her birthday - hence the flowers and baloons. She wanted the photo to make a statement about her so I ended up constructing it like a still life. Never ever let the subject art direct...
    She got me to do 20 odd prints for her - and never paid me for them. But she was so nice I didn't mind. And the clients paid in the end.

    Here are a few pictures i've taken a long time ago with my point-and-shoot:

    My friends and i are all squished together on my Futon (That counts, right?). I'm the girl to the far left inbetween the two guys. ;) You can hardly see the futon though. :(
    [​IMG]

    Here's another one where you can see the futon better. There's a baby squirrel in the box my one friend has.

    These pictures are ok, right?

    I love the second photo! What a pile of people. That can't possibly be confortable, but they all look so happy. Go figure.:mrgreen:

    Inspired by Hertz Van Rental's photographs, I took this picture of my son and his girlfriend at our house on his last night before going to Air Force boot camp.
