Calendar Boys

Well, about time too! I tried for a whole hour, this afternoon to upload this picture, time and again and I've done nothing different! Hmph.
OK ... from left to right: Lee G, Nick, Dave, Jim and Lee W.
This is one of the pix which WON'T be in the calendar but it's due to come back from the printers in days and I've just to 'newspeak' the press release.
Yours truly was the photographer ... I usually pride myself on making people smile, though I suppose there is a crack of a grin here!
There are 12 photographs of the lads, each month having been sponsored by a local company and, for the most part, taken on company premises.
We decided to make the pictures amusing. Two of the companies actually provided them own members, I mean personnel, for the shot.
Nigel, the butcher, looks a bobby dazzler with his chopper held, quite menancing, I thought. A car going by, with a lady driver, almost crashed into the Kwiksave window as she saw Nige's bare bot peeking through his pinafore.
Y'know, there's perhaps something to be said for an all over tan when you see Jim's white derriere!
When I told the guys to run they seemed quite happy to do a 100yard dash ... it could have been something to do with the chill in the air.
As we were walking down to the beach, a couple, walking their dog were leaving. They bade us good evening, as we Brits do, but did look a little puzzled at 5 guys and a gal with a big bag going ON to the beach on a chilly evening at 7.30pm.
Lee G gushed: "It's not what it looks like!" And proceeded to tell them all ... almost his life history in his embarrassment, I think, except maybe when his first milk tooth fell out and how much the tooth fairy gave him.
Oh, the calendar is for charity .. the Louth Hospital CT Scanner Appeal. It's going to go on sale locally for a fiver.
I hope the media pick up on it .. maybe having a lady naturist photographer might help stir their prurient interest?
Well done guys!!!

WHOA! I didn't scroll down last time I was here! The "Full Monty"!

Yesterday I tried for an hour to post a pic and it didn't work. Sometimes Blogger is finicky and doesn't work properly. Very annoying!

The guys were a little nervous to begin with but ended up strutting their stuff quite confidently by the end of our shootings. They were a little hesitant getting their kit off for this picture - such a wide open space but I saw the sun was about to go down so yelled "Get 'em off, NOW" and they complied fast enough!
Hey, I'm a professional!

Hi Mum

How do I buy a calendar then? That would make me grin.

Love you.
