ok - so I put a 'humorous' post in photographers seeking. Although it was and is a genuine offer for a shoot - I just worded it in such a way as to hopefully appeal to those with a sense of humour amongst other things. I did not realise how accurate it would prove. Names removed for the safety of the model! (It might be a Southern thing - but I nearly spat tea on me monitor)

I shall assume that 'leafy' is a description of Surrey (I assume as I've never been there and that makes the most sense from your posted email.

If I'm correct, all I can say is "oh dear" but I think you may have found your willing volunteer :P

Yes 'leafy surrey' is a very well known description of Surrey as in part it has the largest expanse of green space in greater London.

Apart from anything my profile has a very accurate description of my location in the universe!

I have to say with utmost respect for the model concerned I could not have anticipated such a response even if I had set the post up for it.......verging on perfection and totally restored my faith in the idiotic!

Well I know where KIngton upon Thames is and have worked out where you are.Five minuets walk from Kingston station.
Just to be totally irrelevant you live 1.7 miles from where my late Granddad lived most of his life. He lived about halfway along  Dysart Avenue near  the the Richmond rd.

Too far from me sadly.

yes - 5 mins walk. As far as Dysart Aenue is concerned I have no idea. I live by the river and work in Central London. The rest I don't know about.
