The gorilla tripod from Beniamino Marini and an impromptu photo shoot from Thousand Islands, USA by Robb Young on Christmas day

Dear Shaded Viewers,

I like the gorilla tripod sent to me this morning by Beniamino Marini.


Happy HOlidays from Thousand Islands, at the boarder of Canada and the US. Robb Young went home to see his family after many years living in Tokyo and Loondon. On Christmas day he decided to do a little transformation photo shoot with his sister and her Christmas gift of lingerie. I could not resist putting an image of Robb next to his sister. THis was taken in London at the Freize Art Fair.
