Yeah, the world’s been utterly crazily madly frantic ever since I returned from the blissful relaxation of Thailand. Business is very very good. New projects all ticking along. Still have around 1000 photos to process from the trip and two shoots booked this weekend. I’ve tried giving up sleep, but honestly, it’s not good for me. So, apologies that this blog has suffered so… I’ll try to do better.

In the meantime, here’s a couple of photos of an ageing gentleman lurking in a tree above me after I had a wonderful relaxing massage on the beach. Sure I complain – but really, I got nothing to complain about.3Monkeys-40 3Monkeys-12

Muay Thai I

Home again… happy to be here, but full of great memories of Thailand. I have about 1500 photos to develop, maybe more. Somehow I will get through…
Here is one from one of the highlights of the trip – going behind the scenes at a Muay Thai Boxing match in Ao Nang. Very very cool, something I was hoping I could do when we were there. Came upon a magazine article when we arrived, contacted the author and… away we went!

I was the only woman back there – but despite not allowing women within a metre of the ring, they had no problem with me photographing away. There’s a couple hundred from the night, developing away at the moment… thought I’d start with this little guy, hanging around while his big brother prepares for his match.
