Hi Steve, thanks a lot but you must take credit where credit is due. If it wasn’t for your training I feel I wouldn’t have got some of these shots, so thanks again.

You caught me in such a candid manner, and with such an array of emotions that they make me feel quite shy now looking at them. It feels like you got to know me quite well in one afternoon.
