41 — The Gemini
I’m not exactly an advocate of astrology but when you look up my sign (Aquarius) you’ll see clever, inventive, original, stubborn, unemotional, sarcastic & rebellious — well they are a lot of words that spring to mind when I think of Rick Nunn.
My girl is damn literal, not only was she born under the Gemini sign, she is also an actual twin. A Gemini is said to be both sides of yin & yang, & likely to switch at any time.
You might have noticed from previous photos I’ve posted, Spadge tends to alternate her style from “flowers & heels” to “tats & trainers”. So we decided to try & get two angles on the same basic concept, in the same location, with the same setup.
She’s both Front & Vogue — yes I know how lucky I am.
P.s. If you scroll down you’ll see 2 things. Firstly the cat was feeling left out & had to get involved. Secondly I did a behind the scenes video… you should watch it.

Behind The Scenes Video
I set up a camera in the corner of the room and recorded the first part of this shoot. I cranked the speed right up, for novelty value as much as anything else.
