This is Derek, a friend of my father's who became a friend of mine. A man who laughs like Sid James (Carry On movies) and a sense of humour as sharp as a samurai sword. I am lucky he always allows me to practice 'photos' on him and he's my number #1 go to model for trying out shots or testing settings on my camera, in this case, new camera. You will occasionally see this wonderful gentleman appear in my photographs and remember when you see him to call him by his preferred name, 'Skinny' or at the weekends, 'Mr. Skinny'.
