I went to Soho today and picked up a book by Gayla Partridge, who specializes in female portraiture in burlesque or pin-up styles. The book is called 666 Photography and is an example of the kind of photography I enjoy but have no desire to take personally. Without a wardrobe the size of a house full top to bottom with costume, a studio and a lot more skill than I possess, pin-up photography looks like amateur pornography... yuck!
Talking of "yuck", here's a picture of a seedy dude poking his head out of a peep show entrance, a typical Soho sight I guess.
Not so typical are the Patrick Cox Fairy Cakes that I bought today. I found Patrick's cake shop a few months back and have meant to go back to take photos of the shop ever since, and to sample the goods of course. I went back today and was too nervous to ask if I could go wild with my camera and just shoot everything I wanted, but I did find the courage to ask if I could take a photo of these three cakes... I found the courage after buying them that is... the most expensive (and delicious) I've ever taken. I hope you like them.
