competition time

oh come on... doesn't anybody want to win this competition ?

let's keep it going for another 4 days.
at midnight tuesday in the uk this competition will end

until then,  here's the prize again...

it's a digital contact sheet of a shoot i did with the model erin o'connor
a few years ago... a two minute shoot.

i had 13 of these printed up for an exhibition a few years ago and i have three left.
it's 50 x 35cm, glossy photographic paper and it's signed and numbered.

( i signed it so that you can easily crop out my scrawl if you want to )
as you can see, the print on offer is number 11 from the 13 printed.

this is one of my favourite prints because it's not just a chosen image from a shoot,
it's the whole shoot. it shows you what i did during the 90 seconds or so
i spent on the fire escape at the old vic theatre with erin o'connor
( who is wearing a matthew williamson dress by the way )
although time was tight, erin was on good form and from 12 frames she gave me
12 different looks ( which is 11 more than i have )

so to win this highly collectable limited edition print / worthless piece of paper
just answer the following questions... 

how many pairs of sneakers do i own ?
how many spare pairs of laces do i own ?

the prize will go to whoever guesses the first question correctly ( or is closest )
in the event of more than one person having the correct answer, the lace question
will act as the decider.

good luck.
