Many Happy Returns

Posted on Wed 4th Jan, 2006, 10:03pm

ISO: 100, Shutter speed: 1/25, Aperture: f/5.6,
Camera: Canon EOS 20D, Flash: wireless, bounced, Cropping: None,
Lens: Sigma 18-50mm F2.8 EX DC, Focal length: 31mm,
Captured: 4th January 2006, 7:40pm,

This is my good pal Ben aka Benny Many Hats aka Ben Grimm aka Bubble aka Mark Owen aka Fry.

It's his birthday today and he's out in the pub as I type this. I took the photo a couple of hours ago but I had to leave early because I'm shattered and need kip. Badly.

So here's to you, chum. Hope you're having a good one. Sorry I'm not there right now.

The 'effect' on this photo, such as it is, was achieved by holding a pair of cheap comedy spectacles over the front of the lens. The glasses, labelled 'Nerd Spex', were purchased from the novelty item rack of a store called Birthdays. I think they've done an admirable job.

As I said before; Its really cool. Certainly very different to anything Ive encountered before, and thats something I really enjoy about photography. So many different ideas to make a shot stand out from the crowd. Been looking through yours and milou's sites today, and I hate you both. Equally.

Jamey, Wed 4th Jan, 2006, 10:45pm
Ahhh... Love you too, man :)

Wish you'd start taking pics of Jude Law.

Jamey, Thu 5th Jan, 2006, 10:44am
Yeah I should've done really. He comes to Ben's birthday every year but I always forget to take photos of him.

Women. One track mind I tells ya. I bet Jude law never gets any sh*t about headaches, stomach pains or having to be up early for exams.

Bex, Thu 5th Jan, 2006, 12:05pm
Too right, I bet Jude's rich enough to keep ALL his women sweet with presents. That'll stop their moaning. Lucky Jamey realised that early on, ha ha. Well if you consider pickled pork pies a gift. Heh, well works for me!

Jamey, Thu 5th Jan, 2006, 12:16pm
It's PORK AND PICKLE pies, woman. Not pickled pork pies. That would be horrible.

You also missed the fact that I wrote 'well works for me' instead of 'works well'. Did I even go to school? Ah, you're with me for my looks, you cry? Thanks babe.

Jamey, Thu 5th Jan, 2006, 3:49pm
What? You're both Kate Moss AND David Bailey? Would you like to rethink the grammar of that sentence?

Jim, Fri 6th Jan, 2006, 12:07pm
Yeh, either that or just stop breathing?
