Guitarist on the roof
Oh, the creative things we’ve been getting up to here on the French Riviera! Not all have quite worked out as envisaged, but we’ve had a brilliant time trying out ideas and seeing which ones fly. Speaking of flying, Carol’s trying out this thing called levitation photography (not quite as ouija board-ish as it sounds, but the results can look spectacular), and that was where the camper van’s high roof came in handy. Actually getting onto the roof was no mean feat, and involved scrabbling across from the villa’s first-floor balcony, and then hanging on for dear life as the van was manoeuvred into a good position for the shot. My beloved guitar didn’t have any say as to her involvement in the precarious arrangement, but we both lived to tell the tale. As to the final shot – well, after all that daredevilry, it turned out that the van’s roof wasn’t ideal after all, so we’re now back on the quest for the perfect spot for a bit of glorious levitation… For now, this one of me holding on to my guitar while nervously sprawling atop Tanya Toyota will have to suffice…
