Soul photography and topiary

Thanks, Penny (great friend and great photographer) for spotting and photographing this most wonderful example.
I've seen mushrooms, badly shaped peacocks and chess pieces, but never a tree-hugging/climbing/humping animal.

Penny Millar, not often so much a topiary documenter, is a talented photographer, especially in the field of portraiture.
'PhotoVoyage' combines her masterful black and white photography with her coaching experience to provide a unique way of helping people see themselves in a positive and constructive way.
Put in her own words:

I am someone who coaches people towards better self awareness - "Here I am. This is me and I'm ok" - and I do this by combining great informal B&W photos and conversation.

This is one of the series she took of me.

Some I found quite disturbing - perhaps an image I'd never seen, almost like when you catch yourself in one of those multi-angled mirrors - Oh, so that's what me looks like from that side - others, familiar and comfortable and some a happy surprise. I like the above picture very much; so often I'm trying to smile in a certain way, aware of lines, wrinkles, etc; Penny puts you at total ease and captures the 'real person'.
