Silly Tuesday make up

Posted by
Curly (South Shields, United Kingdom) on 18 January 2011 in People & Portrait and Portfolio.

I'm pretty short of new material at the moment, also pretty short of inspiration and motivation to go out and get it (I'm going through another of those blue periods.)

So for the next few days I'll be taking some time out, perhaps tramping around with my camera, if the legs and hips don't give up. I'll be posting some stuff from last year's archives which I wasn't able to squeeze in at the time, I'll try and get around a few of your blogs as and when I can but I will thank you generously here and now for all of your generous comments and words of encouragement.

Found this Thespian being made up at the Roman Fort, South Shields during last year's Arbeia Festival. Looks silly enough for me!

PENTAX K100D 1/1500 second F/5.6 ISO 200 450 mm (35mm equiv.)
