I had no doubts about this shot. It was always going to involve a close up beauty shot with something sweet and tasty dripping from the model’s mouth! On the day, treacle and jam were discarded as honey was the perfect oozing substance.

It is inspired by the song Iris by the Goo Goo Dolls. I fell in love with it not long after it was released. It’s just a gorgeous, rich melody with brilliant vocals and amazing acoustic guitar. It’s made even better with the You Tube video of them playing it live, outdoors in a teeming rain storm. How they didn’t get totally frazzled I’ll never know, some good sound engineers I reckon! However, the atmosphere that creates added to the song produces one of those rare moments you watch and really wish you’d been there at the time.

I loved this song so much we used to play it in the band I was in, we all loved playing it but the audience were never too sure as it isn’t brilliantly well known and isn’t a dancer due to its unusual rhythm. We played it regardless.
