Fabulous portrait. great smile. I hope that he does not get a cold. The metal might rust.
Bill Phillips: It is a girl Lady P. How they don't fall off those stilts is beyond me

How odd. Where did you find this character I wonder?
Bill Phillips: This was at the recent Friar Street festival in Droiters, celebrating the 300th birthday of the Old Cock Inn (no jokes please)

I think you must have been with Mick at his Gay Parade, Bill?!
Bill Phillips: Hahahaha! no this young lady was simply a goth on Stilts grin
Lots of make up to confuse the eye.
Bill Phillips: Very Goth Sheila
I fear that you might never return to colour again Bill. A fine study here.
Bill Phillips: Mr Pig in his new role as Blackpig is taking over the B&W. I am reverting to choccie box and twiddles

Superb study Bill. Excellent!
Bill Phillips: Thank you SAVO
I like the pseudonym black pig .. Mike Newton might be marginally p*ssed orf though. On the other hand he might see at as a compliment and then the two of you could set up a top international photography business called ''Pig and Dog black snaps''.

Aim high my boy.

Oh! btw ... the snap is pretty damn good.
Bill Phillips: I wonder if anyone will think of Captain Pugwash?
Some competition for Michael, here, Bill, a good portrait. I'll take your word for it on the stilts! smile
Bill Phillips: There were two of them and they were a long way off the ground!!
n ur b/w treatment further enhances it
Bill Phillips: Thanks Ayush. Pleased you like it

Like the B&W treatment Bill it gives it a real Gothic feeling.
Bill Phillips: That's what i thought Peter
I like the dark eyes: a mysterious air smile
Bill Phillips: she looks rather pleased with herself
With her hair styled in ringlets like that, Bill, she could very well harked back to olden times. The nose rings, though, give it away. Great presentation in B&W.
Bill Phillips: I can't imagine having rings in my nose!!

I've tried stilt walking a few weeks ago; decided it's not suited to the over-60s. At this closeness, she looks a bit scary.
Bill Phillips: My friend Jeppo, who has featured on this blog, can walk on stilts!
Very gothic indeed!
Great portrait Bill.
Bill Phillips: She should be in whitby!
Excellent portrait Bill, well said about being Gothic.
Bill Phillips: My daughter went through a Goth phase. I liked the music but wasn't too keen on the black lipstick grin
Nice portrait of a self assured girl, she looks like fun.
Bill Phillips: I think if you can walk on stilts you are probably fun!
Seems to be suffering a bit of sun burn here Bill, but a great portrait.
Bill Phillips: I revved up the high key with no holds barred Fred grin
She doesn't look that tall to me. smile
Bill Phillips: About 9ft 3inches at a guess
I seem to remember seeing a couple of people on stilts at Dudley when we met up there.
Bill Phillips: There's a lot of it about Brian

You must have got very up close and personal. Were you on stilts too?!
Bill Phillips: C'mon Ingrid...ME?? ON STILTS!!. Long lens, then cropped, fully feet firmly on the ground grin
Fine portrait, Bill
Really effective processing, Bill.
