After a week of relative lows I had been looking forward to a shoot on Sunday with the beautiful Gemma Chan and bodypainter Annie Davis. Unfortunately the weather was veering against us with promises of heavy rain and the venue that Annie had hoped to use for the painting was already booked. Along the way I had also discussed a statue shoot on Saturday with a male and female model as gold and silver statues, but that too looked like it might be falling through.
So Friday night I was ready to call the weekend a washout and just make do with a trip to the cinema with my wife, but Annie saved the day and confirmed the Saturday was still on.
Little did I know that when I turned up at the Dalriada bar on the Portobello promenade I would be confronted by a superhero. Our model for the day, Andy, had chosen to be the Green Lantern! (after finally being persuaded that without a sledgehammer she couldn't make his face flat enough to be Iron Man).
