Tobi's calmness

Right, just saw images of the location where I'll be doing an editorial fashion shoot. It's in the countryside of Tuscany and boy am I blown away... Europea has such amazing landscapes and colour in its countryside. The sunshine and sunsets too are so lovely. Do we have nothing of the sort in the UK?

Anyway, today I did some shooting, I hope I got enough to use on here whilst I'm away... Oh for those that don't know, I've been commissioned to do some fashion-type images in Italy next week for a few days. After that I'm off to New York for a good mate's wedding, so the blog is going to be quiet for a while. But I'll try my best to upload images whilst I'm away.

First, I am hear about Italy...good stuff. Love the picture...it something I would make my wallpaper on my PDA or just hang off my wall...because I actually like it, not just because it is artistic.
I forgot to "name change"...I am guessing you will not be around for the 31st of August

This is a delicate shot of a dandelion (?). I wish dandelions didn't have such a bad reputation because they are pretty, their greens also are good in a salad.

Sounds like a great opportunity for the upcoming shoot. I wish you lots of luck. Your talent will more than carry you.

New York is my neighbor. I am in New Jersey, I can see NYC from just a few blocks away. When you are here, at least give wave across the river when you are there and have fun!

Jide na you biko, by the way, i have noted there is some rivalry going on for my name, so henceforth, it would be Rayo, so you know who's who.
Mmmm-mmmmmmm! Beautiful image. (:o)
This is wonderful.
It's the delicacy of the tiny stamens and the shadows they form on the petals that make this for me. Lovely image.

Congrats on the commision and Bon Voyage!

This image is quite interesting, but I wondered what is it that is attached to the petals, from where I'm looking it looks like numbers.
