Gordon, The banjo player #3

Gordon (as I have chosen to call him) caught the attention of a pretty young lady here. Her dad was not best impressed, he's the chap on the phone in the background.

Okay a different angle here and a different style too. I'd like to hear your thoughts on this.

Okay I think I've posted enough images for one week. Till next week Monday, where I'm hoping I'll do something a bit more related to spring.

Jide, do you remember at what time of the day this picture was taken? Nice shot.
Jide Alakija: I can't remember the exact time, twas around midday. Why you ask?
