So, I think my gorgeous couple were Chee and Stuart but I could be wrong. Anyway, they were fabulous and hopefully they will let me know if I got their names wrong!In non-fashion news, I got my copy of "Within The Frame" by travel and humanitarian photographer David duChemin today, and I cannot tell you how absolutely BRILLIANT this book is. It is, hands down, the best photography book I own and I wish I had access to it a year ago when I first got my DSLR. David's images are stunning (beware: this book can induce major jealous and envy fits- v unbecoming!) and his writing is a delight- easy, relaxed, but with everything you need to know about shooting people and places (well, except for the stuff he is saving up for us for his next book ;-)) anywhere in the world*. Just google "Within The Frame", David duChemin or Pixelated Image (his blog) and you will know that I am not the only one who sings this book's (and David's) praises. If you are at all interested in photography, if you want to find, reignite, express your photographic vision, then this book is for you. If you really can't afford the £14.49 on Amazon (and I recommend you give up your 4 days of Pret A Manger sandwiches and BYO instead just to get your hands on this book), then you can check out David's blog here.

Street Style...The Couple
I did another BAD here-I sort of forgot to write down this couple's name. I know, I know, it is pathetic BUT I was on my way to an engagement party and my mind was all a whir with how late I already was, how I had almost broken the engagement present tripping over my own feet in my rush not to be late, how I was going to get from Covent Garden to Chancery Lane in approximately 30 secs, and um, whether a chilled glass of champagne be on offer as soon as I got there :)
