Lara, from work, had a housewarming party over the weekend. I think considering I had probably by this point had the best part of a bottle of red wine in just over an hour, it's pretty much in focus. The rest of my photos that night, however, leave a lot to be desired... ;)

Lara has stunning eyes, but they seem even more striking in photos (see this one, from the same night). I told her as much and she told me about how when she was a little girl a photographer had approached her and her mum and asked to take some portraits of Lara, focussing on her eyes as he was so struck by them. After assuring them he was a professional and not some weirdo he took the shots and they ended up in a book, but unfortunately Lara has never had a copy, nor can she find it in print anymore.

Today's title is a reference to a 1978 Faye Dunaway movie...
