MMJ1 – The Christy Connection

Remember the super model, Christy Turlington? Meet her daughter. I have so much to learn from Christy. The tilt of the chin. The bashful eyes. The flattering side on pose. Christy had it all; I had none of it.

Wow! I had no idea my first MMJ snap would come about so easily. A lunchtime stroll to the garden centre and I spotted two likely lads – a couple of teenage boys who looked charming enough. I asked if one of them would be in a photo with me, and though they were curious they both pretended to be too shy. Until the two teenage girls walked past…

‘Ask them, ask them,’ they muttered to me, hormonal desperation leaking from their every pore.

‘Excuse me!’ I called, sounding so much like someone’s mum that the girls stopped dead in their tracks. The girls were delighted, the boys ecstatic. I stood alone in the heart of a whirlwind of teenage flirting. The photo was taken. We were all happy. And, boy, did Christy work it, baby!

Teenage boys. They don’t stand a chance when faced with teenage girls, do they?

It feels appropriate that I was wearing my pink gingham Pendrell blouse, a froth of youthful joy.

    Christy’s daughter IS gorgeous, but who’s the Pendrell-wearing beauty on the left? x

    Great pic and lovely story! I’m so looking forward to the next 29!

    Ah ha! The challenge has just gone up a notch: NOW you have to get a photograph with a famous person’s relative every day in June! Easy! London is FULL of famous people isn’t it? Why, my friend’s cousin went to London last year and she saw that bloke off Eastenders on the Tube! ; )

  6. Oh dear, I think I’ve misled people! My sense of humour to suggest I’d actually bumped into a super model’s daughter in Walthamstow. No, they just shared the same name. Silly Karen!

  7. And the sun shone for your first foray into Me Made June… lovely! Nothing wrong with silliness – in fact I’d recommend it. How would we know if the person you pose with is for real related to fame or not? You could have some fun here!

    Ah the mating rituals of teenagers, boys really do have no hope do they! You look lovely, btw. I love this photo with a stranger challenge you’ve set yourself.

    Haha! Me-Made-Match-Making.

    It’s a fab picture, and you’re going to have such a collection of stories by the time the month is done. Great start 🙂
