The Gallery – A Portrait

April 28, 2010 at 8:19 am | Posted in The Gallery, Work & Life | 13 Comments

Seeing as I was talking about wealth and work yesterday, I’ve decided to stick with the theme.  Is it cheating to post two pictures?!  Hope not!

The first, below, was taken by a photographer for a big broadsheet newspaper, who actually shafted me on an article about finances.  Oh well, the profile pictures have come in handy along the way!  My cardigan wouldn’t do up – I was about 5 months pregnant here.

The second is a portrait of me in my office.  It was taken as a quick snap for a magazine looking for people with cool home offices.  Mine didn’t make the grade – I didn’t hear back.  It was a long shot.  Was just looking for a little pick me up!

This wasn’t the shot of the office BTW, just one of me!  Check out the frown line, too much time on the computer!!

  1. You think you spend too much time in front of the computer??? These are lovely pictures; I wish I had some more of me. Especially of me the software developer – that’d be great

    • You should, why not find a good local photographer – or student wanting to practice!

  2. Aww these are such good pictures you are beautiful, but where is your red hair strawberry shortcake 😉 xx

      • LOL… I don’t know what I was thinking – you look quite tall so maybe not as tall… and I thought you had dark hair – that sort of thing…

        *stop digging, Nicola, stop digging*

      • Well you’re not all wrong! I’m not tall!!! I am a titchy 5ft 1in!!! Although if you go by the machine at the gym I’m 3ft 5in!!!
        My hair is naturally dark, in the first pic I was VERY blonde, not I have quite alot of blonde but not as much!!!
