Wednesday 25 April 2012: Manscaped Moose+Arteries and Veins
As part of the Moose birthday experience I booked him into the Melogy Gentleman's Barber in St Pancras station for a bit of manscaping. Mostly it was a bid to get rid of the facial hair that he has gotten so attached to. He was not having it though, only a little tidy and haircut. He does look very smart with his groomed beard. I might even like it.
After last nights revelling I found it impossible to hang around the smell of hair tonic and opted for a stroll around the station with my camera. As I turned the corner I found myself face to face (or face to cheek as it were) with this unexpected sight. It's not everyday that you see a group of people strolling around in public in their underpants. I didn't see the bodypaint until they assembled on the stairs. I noticed this interesting looking lady standing in the beautiful light and asked for a quick snap while the photographer arranged his models on the stairs. She told me that she had just finished body painting the models for an ad campaign to raise awareness about blood donation. I asked her if she might be interested in painting one of my models in exchange for photos for her book which she was very keen to do. She also said she would be interested in doing a bit of modelling for me as well.
It's been many years since I can remember the room spinning after a night out. I didn't drink much but they were very potent little lady drinks. I was hanging on to the bedsheets so tight I have bruises on my fingers today. Where did I put sunglasses?
