Another lady in a bottle especially produced for Rob C.  I wonder if the background strikes a chord?

And should the festive season create a desire for harmony, then here is the Andrews Sisters in their rendition:

Walter, would Sam sue? Or did the estate do well?

;-)

Classical shape and shapes.

Far more my thing than skeletal offerings!

Sam wouldn't sue.  Not now, at least.  I hope.

Having reached the tomes down I may actually do some reminiscing over the holiday season.

I wonder if they were South African girls at that stage .... or London?  I suspect Five Girls models may have had strangled vowels.

The story I heard at around the publication time was that the girls in Five were college friends of his daughter; however, I haven't heard of a daughter since, only of his son, who took over the various website operations post-mortem. I would guess they are probably S.A. girls - some crackers there in some of the websites of S.A. snappers. Must be the climate!

I thought 5Gs was the book I really wanted; couldn't afford it at the time, and now I have the Cowboy one but don't think 5 will be reprinted. God, it was so refreshing in its day! Thank goodness for obliging public libraries of the period.

Rob C

P.S. I think chronologically they must be S.A. lasses, because Cowboy Kate, which came later, also features guns which wouldn't have been available in London to anyone but the fuzz, army or thugs. Maybe Sam had connections. What makes me wonder about Cowboy is the shots of girls in fields of tall grasses... would they do that so blithely in S.A.? Of course, I am assuming the 'daughter' lived in S.A. at the time of going to college - she may have been sent to the UK instead. He certainly spent a lot of time living in London. I am also, naturally, expecting Cowboy to have been shot all in one country, but that may not be the case at all.

Hi Rob. I have mailed my friend Harry who might know the answers to the questions about Sam's models, I have a suspicion that "Kate" was South African, but will wait for Harry's confirmation that I hope he'll post here.

Hi Riaan,

I'm trying to find my way around the new computer just now: have got my swamp pop rock thing working as background music:

www.klrzfm.com

and I've also got LuLa into the favourites list. Still haven't sussed out how to put either onto the desktop (this is Windows 8) and as I write, everything is being underlined in red! Why the hell do they complicate everything so!

Even more odd: I put the phrase 'Windows 8', above, in brackets, and the close bracket has come up on the Preview here as a smiley and the 8 has vanished! I'll see what happens when I post. Yep, it still comes up as a smiley. Why?

I don't know if this new thing here will do me in or not; so far, the blood pressure is mounting...

;-)

Interesting shot, but the horizon could do with some adjustment: it's not quite horizontal.

Smoke and mirrors, Jeremy, smoke and mirors: hold two of them at 90° and you burn your fingers.

Rob, herewith Harry's reply:


"Hi Riaan,
 As I have forgotten my log in name I will reply to you as you can re-post.
One of his models was Gill who is living in SA. His books Five Girls, Cowboy Kate and November Girl were done in SA. He left due to constrictions from the Censor Board and his wife battled to get clearance when Pentax brought him to SA for a lecture talk. His photos was considered soft porn, a term he hated as a photo was either porn or not, like he said, being considered slightly pregnant!
 He did a pictorial for Playboy in the 70's called "Girls Of Africa", my copy has since disappeared, and possession of Playboy was illegal. Some of the girls in that feature appeared in his later works, if my memory serves correct. 5 Girls was banned in SA and my paperback copy was purchased from Corgi in the UK and got through the post without customs inspection.
 November girl was shot in Cape Town, mainly, so the model  must have being local. I think Gill was his favorite SA model.
 I am not aware of a daughter only an adopted one that died young. I only know of his sons, Ludwig and Konrad who are alive today.
Hope this helps,
Harry. "

Hi Riaan,

Thanks for Harry's notes: I didn't realise SA had a censorship regime on stuff like that - strange rules we make for our societies - look at Britain just a few years ago: you couldn't publish certain books that are now classics, see theatre shows etc. etc. unless 'approved' by the censorship boards.

So no daughter at college, then - stories just got invented back then, as now. I can hardly believe the two Italian chicks walked free in the Nigella Lawson case today. Even if what they stated as being the situation regarding huge personal spending on the 'company' is true, condoned if they kept silent about drugs, isn't that extortion?

Regarding Sam - I was invited to a picture show he gave in Scotland for the boss of a colour processing lab; it was really amazing stuff he projected - the best case for 120 format slides ever!

Okay, just for you and for Christoph, who so wanted me to emulate the works of certain snappers, here's today's effort with Ms Coke. As I don't want to be sandbagged by his cushion, I thought it best to go along.
....

/ me pulls out an even softer cushion ... ;)

Nice one Rob! Looking forward to meet you next week - bringing a "Ken" for your "Barbie" from Hamburg ..

Cheers

I thought it was just me! Anyway, it's just a matter of a couple of degrees  :D

Nah, don't bother with a new passport for Ken; Barbie, Cindy, Sindy or whoever she was wasn't part of the Campbell clan: she was just part of a Christmas consignment I had to photograph for a store back when... Action Man was one stiff prick and 'she,' B, C or S, was as (f)rigid as you can imagine in your worst nightmares... no idea why kids would have wanted any of them - maybe they never did: maybe their parents just saw themselves reflected.

I accentuated it a little in post production...   but it was already there.
