Last year whilst at the Theakstons Old Peculier Crime Writing Festival at Harrogate I was introduced to American writer, Christa Faust. And the reason for our introduction wasn’t down to books, but clothes. Both Christa and I have this vintage thing going on. Liking what we like isn’t just about a bombshell dress and a pair of stilettos, it’s an attitude and we hit it off immediately.
The next day Christa told me she was doing a noir photo shoot and invited me to join her and photographer, Barney Allen.
Barney had located the perfect spot for some seedy action shots and as the evening shadows formed Christa and I found ourselves grappling on a rusting stairway at the rear of the hotel.
Here’s one of the photos, for the rest and Barney’s entertaining blog post on his seedy encounter with two of Harrogate’s ladies of crime, click on the link below :
