Life On Mars

by Mark Pinder

Heard a funny, but depressing , story the other day about a photographer who’s girlfriend works on one of the Conde Nast or National Magazines titles.

She comes home from work one day, and says: ‘Oh, I saw a great portfolio today’.

He says: ‘Tell me about it’.

She says: ‘Oh it was gorgeous, buckskin exterior, velvet lined, gold leaf inserts, beautiful brass hinges and the sweetest little cubby hole for his business cards’.

‘Yes, but what about the photos?’

‘Oh they were of horses and fields or something, don’t really remember, gave him 3 commissions though’……….

Guess I won’t be working for Cosmo or Country Life anytime soon………
