Madhouse diaries : Never work with children or animals !

You know how it is, you see the perfect backdrop for the perfect family snap and think I know, I'll just get the kids in place, take a quick piccie and it's in the bag. It all started so well, Juliette and Pierre were in place and it just needed Sophie behind them.

Oh, well, Pierre has decided to be a superhero instead.

OK, let's get a sneaky close-up while Sophie's not here. One tortoise face and one definitely-not-smiling face !

Ah, here's Sophie, and this could have been a good shot if Juliette hadn't turned round - although Pierre does still look like a tortoise poking his neck out of his shell !

Hmmm that's more of a grimace than a smile !

Right, Sophie and Juliette are sorted - now Pierre needs to stop looking like he's being strangled.

Oh blimey, Juliette has turned into a zombie and Pierre has fallen asleep !

Unbelievable - they're all looking vaguely human and smiley - phew !
