Running the Asylum

My friends Charles and Kate asked for a photographic Christmas card, and while I was there I saw the opportunity for a fun extra picture:

Amitié Impérial

Charles has an eccentric sense of humor; what else would you expect from a man who has a bust of Napoleon III in his house? I had minimal light modifiers with me, so popping one strobe high right through an umbrella was the obvious choice; more interesting than the light is the pose. The expression on the bust oozed aloofness, so what better to do than cozy up to the Emperor and add insult to injury with a bottle of California wine?

Allons, enfants de la Patrie….
